    I would assume this is a problem in the 1020 as well. The 1520 saves two editions of your photograph, a "HighRes" edition that is 16MP and a more normal resolution that is 5MP.

    The SkyDrive Auto Upload shows three settings:
    • Don't Upload
    • Good quality (may use data plan)
    • Best quality (needs Wi-Fi)


    Well, it seems all of that is based on the 5MP photo and the 16MP photo is ignored. The "Good Quality" is a down-rezed version of the 5MP photo that is created on the fly (I believe this is also what happens when you share the photo).

    When I'm connected to WiFi, I want full-fidelity backups of my photos to be sent to my SkyDrive account. I don't ever want to have to attach my phone to my computer or eject the SD card in order to get at the higher quality photos.

    I hope some of you share my displeasure. Microsoft needs to accommodate these higher-resolution photographs.

    If Nokia were to have their Nokia Pro Camera app have a setting to just output the 16MP version (instead of always forcing the 5MP to be included), would that also solve this?

    I have a 1520 and believe you are correct. I think Sky Drive should accommodate any media, if you choose, regardless of size.

    If I remember correctly, ATT Locker is the only thing that will upload the high res images. Though that only helps if you are on ATT.

    No, I am not using the RAW format, just the JPEGs.
