Thread: Viewing high resolution photos
11-16-2007, 12:11 PM #1Viewing high resolution photos
I haven't got a Iphone yet, but will be getting one this weekend.
I just wanted to know how the iphone is viewing high resolution photos, such as 7 megapixel photos directly copied from a digital camera.
Do they load up immediately or take some time to appear on the screen, how is zooming and rotating? Also if you have eg. 100 photos in an album, all at 7 megapixel, and around 3mb each. Does the album preview instantly show the thumbnails of all the photos, or do they each slowly appear.

iPhone does something I don't like very much. It "optimizes" the photos. Meaning it dithers them to make them smaller. Therefore you get a definite decrease in quality. If you want to retain the resolution of the photos, save them as PDF's and manually place them on your phone, or email them to yourself on the iPhone.Get "iPod & iTunes for Dummies", it'll change your life.

Thanks for the reply Eurisko.
One more question, when itunes optimises/compresses the photo, what filesize does the photo become? also what resolution do they get converted to?
Many thanks for your help.
