iPhone Image Size Mystery

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:

  1. Images uploaded via the WordPress plugin are automatically resized to 640×480
  2. Images sent via the mail application are automatically resized to 800×600
  3. 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.
