to save memory in your cellphone crop your photos, edit your audio recordings and edit your videos to save space

could recapture between 20% - 60% of memory space by doing so

eliminating the border area around many of the photos can save a considerable amount of memory space

check the details of a photo and then crop it

after it is cropped check the details of the photo and you may be surprised at how much space you can regain

same applies to audio and video storage

Even if you think you could save space by "storing it in memory" it'd only save a few kilobytes. At least it would for a couple seconds to minutes, since "memory" isn't where files are permanently stored in the first place.

What you're actually talking about is Solid State or Disc (Hard) Drive Storage. Memory is used only as a temporary, on-the-fly data swap. They are entirely separate processes.

did you not explain it correctly on your first post on this thread?

cropping photos, audio or video items would be the ones already in memory

No. Now try to follow along, Newbie...

Memory only temporarily "stores" data to give the processor more "elbow room", so to speak.

The purpose of memory, is to offload commonly-used processes from the central processor in order to speed up those processes. The more RAM (random access memory), the faster most processes. The moment the finite memory available is maxed-out, or when a higher priority file is assigned to RAM, or when the system is shut down (turned off), the temporary files in memory are either substituted or dumped and all info temporarily residing within RAM is lost. It has nothing to do with file storage. Period. End of discussion.

Files are 'stored' on the drive, NOT in memory.

Capiche???
