    Now that the folder has been opened, we need to find and tap the Photos icon.
    It is an icon of a shape made up of different colors, and underneath, it says the word "Photos". Your photos application may be in a different location, so look for the icon in your folder. We now need to find the settings menu.

    We now have two options, "High quality" or "Original".
    Underneath "High quality" it says, "Great visual quality at reduced file size (free unlimited storage). Underneath of "Original" it says, "Full resolution that counts against your quota (15.0 GB left). We can clearly see the difference between these two options. Once gives us unlimited storage and reduces the file size, and the other one gives us only 15 GB of storage, but allows us to keep the full resolution and original quality of the file. Make the choice that's right for you by pressing down on the option.
