ios - How does iPhone manage duplicate photos?

    I end up with quite a number of duplicate pictures on my iPhone because of Photostream. For example, I take a picture which is saved in the Camera Roll. It is then automatically uploaded to my Photostream. Then, I share the photo to three different Photostreams. As a result I can see the same picture in 5 different places. I'm really tight on space on my device and wondering if this would make it more pronounced?

    Is iPhone smart enough to manage duplicates? If not, is there an alternate way to manage duplicate photos at least somewhat?

    ios 5 - How do you erase pictures from the Photo Stream album on an iPhone running iOS 5?

    I have recently upgraded to iOS 5 on my iPhone 4 and am loving it. One issue I've run into is that my iPhone adds my recently taken photos to an album named "Photo Stream" whenever I'm on WiFi.

    The Photo Stream album seems to have the same properties that an album I had synced with iTunes would have; meaning I can't delete photos.

    I have my iPhone syncing with iCloud, but I can't find any mention of synced pictures on icloud.com.

    How do I erase pictures I don't want from the Photo Stream? Do I have to delete them from my Camera Roll?
