    My photos are using 6GB I deleted everything from photo stream and left just a 100 photos from holiday but still showing 5.7 gb with few short videos.

    Not sure what's going on why so much memory being used.

    That sounds strange. When you go to Settings | General | Usage | Photos & Camera, what breakdown does it show of the 5.7gb between the Camera Roll, Photo Library, and Photo Stream?

    Have you tried to reset your iPad to see if it will decrease? To reset: press the home and sleep/wake button until the iPad turns off. Then turn back on and see if it helped. Good luck, let us know if it doesn't help.

    You'll have to delete pictures from Camera Roll in your Photos app. They take most of the space.
    I see that you saved almost 400 photos there. Do you have an option to store them somewhere else? (Like Dropbox or Loom or Google Drive, ...)

    Well darn--that's too bad that it didn't work itself down with a reset.

    Have you considered moving some of your pictures off your iPad and onto another cloud server such as dropbox or even transferring it to a laptop/desktop? That may be some options for you at this point.
