    On my daughter's iPhone, we were clearing space so she can take more pics and videos.

    The camera roll only has 33 photos and 4 videos which are all between 14 and 61 seconds. Shouldn't take up too much space, right?

    But then I go into settings>general>usage>manage storage>photos&camera, it says she is using 14.3 GB in the Photo Library and only 40.5 MB in the Shared Photo Stream.

    I tried rebooting the iPhone and did a sync to my Mac iTunes and it reports that there are 1,311 photos?!?!

    Where is this reported 14.3 GB coming from and how do I get it free? Thanks!

    Out of curiosity. How did you delete the photos from the phone? From within the phone or from the computer?
