    Default Creating Albums from Camera Roll - Double the space?

    I have about 500 photos in my Camera Roll. To make it easier to see and find, I have organized them into Albums. Does that mean I now have 1000 photos on my iphone, or are the albums created using "pointers" (rather than copies) and I still only have 500? And what about the photos in Photo Stream? Do they add to the count? Does each of my photos take up three spots? Where is the "original" photo stored? When I purge Photo Stream, the photo remains in the Camera Roll and therefore in my Albums. Just can't figure out the hierarchy.
