As my 1020 fills up with more and more photos, I want to delete high ed versions of many of them while keeping the sharing version on my phone.
Is there a way to do this in the phone? Is there a more elegant way than having to go one by one or indiscriminately through searching "highres" on my computer? The syncing apps don't seem to support this very well and what compounds the problem is that there are no previews available in windows explorer to see what each high res picture is without opening them one by one.
Any help you could offer would be highly appreciated. Thanks!

If using the Nokia Pro-Cam App,
Tap the three white dots in the corner, then select Settings. Within Settings, under Capture Mode, selet "JPEG (5MP)" only. This will only save the smaller photos, and not the Hi-Res ones.
Not sure what other apps allows you to do this.

If I press delete on the phone, it'll delete both versions when I actually want to keep the 5mp version on the phone. When I want to do this, I'll have already most likely uploaded all my pictures (including the highres)onto my computer or SkyDrive.
The problem is, it's hard to do if I have lots of pictures taken. Even on a computer because the pictures are not separated into different folders, and they cannot be previewed in the explorer window like for the smaller pictures so if I sort them by highres, they are hard to tell apart...

Now, all of the larger photos will be separated with the small ones. Due note that your videos will be among your large pictures, so be careful not to delete those. That's how I do it.

Thanks, I tried that too, but I don't seem to be able to preview my pictures easily when I scroll through them. So, I kind of have to have two windows open to compare the numbers... I still have to go 1 buy 1 if I don't want to do it indiscriminately.
Hopefully that makes sense.

Search the Camera Roll folder (on the top right) for "*_highres.jpg"
This will return all JPG files with "_highres" in the name.
Can then hit CTRL + A and then Delete.

Since I can't preview them well on my computer or delete them on my phone, it's not very convenient to do so.

You should be able to use the method described here to get to the folder containing your phone's pictures from your computer. Once there, you can search for the wildcard *_highres.jpg to just get the high res pics in a search results windows without videos.
