Storage in Dropbox and device

This is a simple question I want to save space so I put my photos in Dropbox. My question is that the photos I put in my Dropbox does it add more storage or is it still stored in my device storage?

Hi @Aeydble, I hope you're doing well! 

As a first step, can you clarify which platform of Dropbox do you use? 

Generally, if you add the content to Dropbox, it doesn't automatically save your device's space.

Unless you then remove the content from the original place you had it saved. 

Let me know if you need more info.
