    Holy crap! who has 128gb of photos!
    anyway, it means not itunes things, like for say, games on steam, or downloaded applications from the internet.

    At a minimum, everything in your System Folder!

    Just like the interior space in your car is reduced by the space required by the engine. Want instructions on how to remove your engine and have another trunk? :D

    What is this "Other" in the storage tab? What is eating up my space? by theSeb

    128 GB of photos is nothing. I have up to 300 GB of photos, almost all RAW or TIFF, and I don't even photograph professionally. Those people probably have TBs of photos.

    Just go to applications, and uninstall things you don't need. or look in your pictures and documents for things to delete.

    Why not? I have a crappy 450D shooting at 12 MP and saving them in RAW format. Every photo is 12 to 18 MB in size.
    I have over 5.000 analog photos (not all scanned), and I have over 20.000 digital photos, that is roughly 300 GB.
    Some professional photographs have a much bigger collection, even when deleting some photos they don't deem to be usable, and they also use much better cameras with higher resolutions, and store in TIFF and RAW format. 1 TB of photos is not much, if one photo takes up to 50 MB away (1 TB of 50 MB photos accumulates to almost only 21.000 photos, not much).

    ----------

    You search for it by its name.
    Or to find out, where you storage capacity is being used, you can use the following free applications, if the already posted link about the "Other" was not clickable or did not help at all:
    Maybe try a combination of several, if you still can't find the "missing" capacity.
