When I go to attach a picture file on my droid eris for a message, it automatically resizes it, only problem is, that the pictures were never too big to begin with, usually aroun100-300kb and then when it does resize it, it goes down to 12kb on average, a tiny picture with a big black frame on the screen. what gives?
using stock message program. no other complaints about the message program, so not looking to switch.
I found this on another site about the recent OTA update.
One thing that I don’t care for: photo compression. Before the update, there would be times where a random pic would be too big to send as a pic message (ie where the pic would be over 1200 kb). After the update, no picture is ever too big. But the phone is compressing EVERY picture now, while before it didn’t. Why couldn’t they just have done the compression when necessary (if the pic is too big)? Now it seems as if the camera software (or is it the messaging software?) is thinking that every picture is over 1200 kb and automatically compressing it.
looking back at old messages, I would agree that this compression issue is only happening since the update, my old sent pics were full sized.
whats done is done. just wait for the next update. to me this MMS and Youtube stuff is the most obvious of mess ups and needs to be corrected soon. im waiting for some feedback from the companies, they are not gonna let this lil beast of a phone fall off the planet. im not blaming them for the bugs, i knew they'd be there, just some information that all will be well .. it'll save the verizon stores from dealing with these returns too.
oo that sucks, i think i get the option to add it i believe.
Ya, Caddyman, it does stink. I hope there is a option for that in the settings somewhere. I can't find it though. Seems to me I saw something about that before in a thread or something. I tried searching for that.
so is this a bug from the update? or something that was done on purpose. i dont want ALL my images compressed and resized so small, i want some that dont need to be compressed to be the full image... anyone?
This new picture resizing activity is most likely another attempt by Verizon to reduce data usage. I think they're probably doing everything they can in that vein to free up resources for more... homogeneous data coverage.
I think they'll reverse a lot of these changes as they get their network capacity caught up to demand.
Once 4G is implemented... well, I doubt they'll worry about data overuse after that.
