Photos Needs Better Storage Management

Bradley Chambers:

On iOS and macOS alike, I’d like to be able to control how much of a cache that the Photos app can keep offline. I know that both iOS and macOS does an excellent job of keeping free space, but I’d love additional control over how much space it uses. An idea here would to set a maximum GB usage that iCloud could use. On iOS, I’d like to be able to say: use no more than 10 GB (I have a 64GB phone) for iCloud Photo Library.

Greg Hurrell:

Wish I could automatically sync lower-quality versions of photos from my Apple Photos library to my iPhone. It seems to sync the full(-ish?) resolution versions, which at 10MB apiece adds up to 100GB. Only way I can see to make this happen is to export lower-res and sync that.
