The app on my iPhone 5 is huge. I have over 3000 images stored and the app is taking up 25 gigs of space. Is there any way to reduce that and not affect the images I have stored?

On your iphone or ipad, go to the library view for each library and look at the bottom left cloud icon above the libary icon. Next to that you will see "up to date" if it has completed the sync. You can click on the cloud icon for more information. Anytime your library is up to date, you can clear the cache if you wish to regain some space. This is done in your Library settings in Revel. Tap the 3 parallel lines (version 2.1 and up) in the top left corner. Then, tap the i in the circle to the right of the library you want to clean up. Next, tap the 'Clear Cache' button and give Revel a few minutes to process files. This should purge originals that are already safely stored in the cloud.

Full sized versions of the files that you requested to upload will not be deleted until they have completed uploading. Once all of your photos are uploaded, you can clear the cache and should reclaim the space that the full sized files used while uploading. The app and thumbnails will remain and continue to use space (these are small files), but the full sized files and large preview files will be deleted. If your space goes below 500 MB free space, the cache will clear automatically.

We only cache the original while we are uploading it to ensure the whole file gets loaded successfully. Because of this, more space is needed during uploading than just everyday use.
