Re: Bbm profile pic quality

Quality of the BBM or Contact picture is determined by the source.  I have all my BBM contact images and Phone contacts with high quality pictures.  The better the quality of the image , the better your pictures will be. If you use your desktop computer and pull down their pictures as higher resolution pictures, then use that on your z10, then you will find excellent quality. For me I found that the z10 profile pictures are amazing if you use good pictures to start with.

Re: Bbm profile pic quality

How are you copying the image? Screen shotting with the on-board mechanics or actually holding and copying the image from the browser?

Re: Bbm profile pic quality

i am screenshotting the image, and if I view it in the Picture folder it look perfect but only when i use it in my bbm profile the quality is bad.  Can you do it in a other way in facebook?

The facebook app on the z10 needs a lot of work.. But when you sign on to facebook through your z10 browser www.m.facebook.com , then you have full control to save the picture on your z10. Go into the profile of your facebook user, click on view full size, then click and hold the image and slider appears on the right , select save image, this copies it into your downloads folder, select the picture from there , select overflow icon(3 dots), and set as  BBM picture.

 

The other option is use your computer and download all the pictures email it to your z10 and use those pictures.
