How much do photos in text message count against memory limits?

Hello,

I have an 8GB 1st Gen Moto G, so storage is an issue, but I’m trying to keep it as long as possible before I upgrade. I’ve been making do with the memory limit, but something I’ve been curious about is how much memory do photos in text messages take up? The SMS app never comes up as a memory hog, but regular photos that I take with the phone’s camera are, of course, an issue. The SMS keeps photo messages on its own, so they’re easy to go back and delete, but I’m curious as to whether it matters much.

Thanks.

3 years of message history on my Moto X 2nd Gen has only taken up 100mb of my phones storage. This is taking into consideration that I have the data split between three texting apps. Republic Anywhere currently has only 25mb of my storage used (and it retrieves full history from the other apps).
