okay thanks for that confirmation. Again, I wasn't paying too much attention to the meter like mentioned. Just thought I saw it drop. Am uploading at them moment and will try the next batch without the tick!
Ok, so my experiments saw no drop in the storage quota. Let me know if you notice it again definitely.
I've just pushed live a few changes to the editing form. It now includes checkboxes for each photo to make them public or set them as photos. Also shuffled it around a little as it was getting very crowded. Probably still is, but at least a little bit better.
I haven't done anything about tags yet; that's a little more involved.
