Hi Team

When i take pxts on my phone, i pxt exactly what i see and when thats what is frozen when i hit capture. the annoying thing though is that in actuality, when i review it, the pxt appears like its been taken further away and when i send to others, they see that more distant look as opposed to what was frozen when i hit the capture button. When i send the pxt to others its got the distant look with black bars either side, i sent one to myself and i get the same thing. yet when i get others pxts, it fills the whole screen on my phone

any ideass??

cheers

Your phone takes portrait images, Most others (almost all) take landscape images.

There is a conversion in network side to "suit" the receving phone. The Samsung W531 I have takes landscape shots but it can be rotated before saving to make it more suited to others phones, Great for sending to Sanyo's (but not tested, maybe the black bars are still there .. hmmm.)

If I want portrait, I just rotate the phone on the side and then "rotate" the image to it REALLY is saved at portrait and not just landscape taken on the side. Lovely!

hey dude!

thanks for the reply, i only thought now to use search and saw that there was another person with the same gripe! the received pxts  look crud and it isnt till its downloaded to the recipient's phone that you get the full image. but why should the recipient have to do that? and also some phones dont have the facility to save to the phone also

i pxt'd a few people with different phones, both telecom and vodafone and they all have the squeezed portrait look. looked all in the options for a landscape or rotate setting and no go

i like the phone but find this feature disappointing, if most phones take landscape, then there shouldve been an option included to select landscape or rotate.

*not happy*

I have just taken a portrait pix from a 5600 (almost same as 9000)and sent it to a Nokia 6234 (vodafone and w51 samsuung on telecom and got no black bars and got image in portrait,.,.. Maybe the cheaper phones get the black bars. the image is also in full 1.3 Mega glory!
