Full sized images on the BOLD, via BlackBerry Pin Messenger...

Weird! When I take a photo with my BOLD, and send it to someone via Blackberry Pin Messenger (BPM), they never receive it full screen, and I can't see photo full screen either.

 

It never did this on the Curve, or Pearl for that matter. Is this something on the BOLD only? I hate this feature. Anyone else?

Re: Full sized images on the BOLD, via BlackBerry Pin Messenger...

Well, hello Mr. Navi!  :smileyhappy:

 

I think BBM shrinks the pic.  it's always a much smaller file when sending over BBM.  Ever notice how quickly it sends the pic?  I'm not on a Bold but my guess would be that it's just too small to fit on the bigger screen.

Hi there, John! How are you? I hope all is well...

 

Good point, but didn't do that on the Curve. I just wish they'd change it. I wonder if it's any different on the 8900?

Re: Full sized images on the BOLD, via BlackBerry Pin Messenger...

I have the same problem!!
I have a BB Pearl and when my friends send me images via BB Messenger from a curve or "wider" phone,
the resolution is very bad! It shrinks the width ( yes, only the width ) to fit my narrow screen and its very upsetting!
It doesn't shrink the images keeping the proportions and I can't see anything clearly, everything looks out of shape.
When I click "View", I should be able to see the images the same way I see the pictures I take with my phone.
Please help!!
Thanks
Best Regards
Alex

I am confused with this as my friend and I have exactly the same 8900 now when I send him photos, it shrinks on his screen, but when he sends me, they're always fullsize. All our camera settings are the same tho, please help!
