In my last post about attending a concert, I made a small remark about the surprisingly small image size of files uploaded from my iPhone via the WordPress plugin. After a little more sleuthing, I’ve discovered the following:
- Images uploaded via the WordPress plugin are automatically resized to 640×480
- Images sent via the mail application are automatically resized to 800×600
- Images downloaded via USB link from the iPhone are copied at 1600×1200
As far as I can tell, the only way to obtain full-quality images from your iPhone is by connecting it directly to a computer. To me, this is quite bothersome as I rarely (once per week?) sync my iPhone. I’d much rather have the ability to send my images via email or just upload them directly to my website. I can understand the reasoning behind the resizing, but it would be nice if there was a “upload hi-res” option or something.
