So I just connected my phone to iTunes, on the bar where it lists how much is using what space on your phone it lists photos as having 5,448 and taking up 25GB.

However, if I go to settings > General > About it lists there as being 4,419. Same thing when I open photos on my Mac, lists 4,419.

Any idea why the difference? It seems like its taking up a big chunk of extra space.

Any idea how to look at this and see what is going on?

It's including videos on iTunes.

On the iPhone it's not including videos.

In settings > general > about you see photos and videos listed separately. If you add the two you should get the same number that iTunes gives you.
