10.7: Unanticipated but Un-welcome behavior in Photostream
Authored by: 8675309 on Oct 25, '11 04:23:46AM

Not to jump on someone else thread here, but...

Has anyone realized that photo stream sends a downsized version of the image that you have captured on your phone? This is patently unacceptable and perfectly useless for my purposes. Anyone know of a checkbox or pref. somewhere that I'm missing?

Thank you!

10.7: Unanticipated but Un-welcome behavior in Photostream

Thankfully, this is not the whole story. From Apple's Photo Stream FAQ:

"On your Mac or PC, your photos are downloaded and stored in full resolution. On your iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, and Apple TV, your Photo Stream photos are delivered in a device-optimized resolution that speeds downloads and saves storage space. While actual dimensions will vary, an optimized version of a photo taken by a standard point-and-shoot camera will have a 2048 x 1536 pixel resolution when pushed to your devices."
