I am running out of space on my 16 GB iphone 6 (shocker.)
I have about 400 family photos that i've taken, and added to a shared album. All of these photos are stored locally on my iPhone.
If i remove any of those photos from my phone to free up space, are they also removed from the shared album? (that would be bad.)
More generally: what are the semantics of shared photos? are they copies? symlinks?
- ICloud photo library is on
- optimize phone storage is checked
- upload to my photo stream is on
- icloud photo sharing is on.
I have backups and syncs to my macbook on a fairly routine basis, and i'm also using google photos specifically for photo backup independent of any of the above settings.
