    Who has bought more of this , I'm toying with the idea. Im full at the moment mainly due to camera roll. These are backed up to iPhoto but I like the idea of them being backed in the cloud. What do u think stupid to buy more.

    I have filled both icloud and dropbox due to the camera roll (photostream is off - this is just the icloud backup) in the last two weeks.

    I am considering removing the pix from the backup. I do import them into iViewMedia Pro and will be purchasing Aperture soon (will they import into there?)

    How does the backup through iTunes work? Are the pix accessible through the file system there somehow?

    Thanks for posting this thread - I've been meaning to!

    I'm still showing as 25GB available, since I was a mobileme user before icloud was introduced. I was mean't to have 25GB till the end of june, but it doesn't look like thats gone.

    Even when they do reset it, I have no interest in paying for extra space because i only use 3.1GB anyway. Whether that changes if i get an iPad ill have to see.

    I believe they do backup automatically into aperture as well , I like the idea that if anything happened I wouldn't have to sync folders in iTunes to get them back. That iCloud will just load them back.

    That is a cool feature but not sure if it's worth paying for. I have over 4gb of pix on the phone. My iPad has 500mb total but I'm not sure if I've missed anything in the two weeks my backups have been stalled.

    I honestly don't even need the pix on the phone (most of them anyway) - I just like having them there.

    Where do you find them in iTunes? I've never looked and this is my first iPhone.

    I'de do if if you really have sentimental photos that cannot be lost.

    I'm sure iCloud will get cheaper to draw customers in at some point.

    With warm Regards,
