Richard Baker Posted February 28, 2014 Share Posted February 28, 2014 I've been playing with my Android this afternoon - making pictures, uploading them to Dropbox and downloading them into my Mac (works a treat!) and for the first time, inspecting the metadata for each file, shot under different conditions. Not that any are worth sending to Stockimo .. Anyway, what flummoxed me is that while the first ones I shot have the full res of 2560 x 1920 (it's a 5mp Samsung) but at some point they then reduced to 800 x 600. I really don't think I've changed any settings: all the highest settings in the phone (Superfine jpeg and Resolution) remain intact but the only thing that differs is that the Colour Profile (sRGB) is missing from the smallest files. Can anyone shed any light on this? Does the phone itself choose whether to embed the Profile and hence, reduce the resolution? Chosen effects, for example? I've never come across a relationship between a Colour Profile and resolution before and anyway, we're talking of a huge leap from 2560 to 800 pixels wide! Told you I was flummoxed! Cheers, Richard.
