WP7 Photo Chooser is Resizing the Images RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hey guys,

    I'm working on a photo editing app, and I've noticed that the photo chooser is resizing all the images it imports to 1632 * 1224, which is not even 2 megapixels. This is only on WP7, on WP8 it's perfectly fine.

    I'm using a creating a BitmapImage, then using setting its source to the stream that comes from the photo chooser completed event (e.ChosenPhoto).

    Do you guys have any ideas? It's annoying being unable to save the full resolution images.

    Thanks

  • It is WP7 restriction. You can do nothing.

    PhotoChooser didn't resized it. Resize occurred when you to load it into BitmapImage.

  • Thanks.

    I'm noticing now that other photo editing apps resize the images to the same dimensions.
