Re: [iPhone] iPhone photos taking up iCloud space

If iCloud is almost full, one can buy more iCloud space, just as one would add an external HD to a Mac for more space. One can also do some house-cleaning to better utilize existing space. It is a matter of choices.

I know, but that's not the point. Once the photos are optimized they'll be tons of space. I want to know if it's possible to do that without a computer, since the iDevice is designed to be used with the need for a computer.

I'm pretty sure that is the point -- you are supposed to buy more. Why else would Apple have set it up in the first place? I'm sure it wasn't to give away something for free.

Still, to answer your main point, when you sync with Itunes the photos are not just optimized. They are saved (archived in original resolution) and then a copy put back on the iPhone which is optimized for viewing on an iPhone. So for this to happen in iCloud you would still need the increased storage for the originals. I don't sync photos with iTunes as I don't want them to be messed with.

Thanks
So do you have large iCloud storage?

No -- Apple has gotten enough from me when I have been buying my devices and their share of the store when buying apps.
