Hello, everybody!

Do any of you know say what the minimum resolution of a picture to be displayed on the live tile "photo" of WM10?

All photos of my contacts have 250x250 resolution, but none of them appear in the tile of native photos app from Windows Mobile 10.

Is there any setting for this? Minimum resolution? Minimum size? (Because it did not occur in Windows Phone 8.1)

Ps. Forgive me for my bad English. I am Brazilian and I speak portugese.

Contact photos won't appear on the "Photos" app unless copies of those images are in the "Pictures" folder on your phone.

Or are you asking about the "People" tile?

You have not to do anything for that live tile: leave pics as original!!!!
Then in settings change Live tile settings: 1 pics, Recent or Favourite. Then reboot your phone. That's all!

Yes, I understand.

They are photo files that I associate to each contact.

So are photo files anyway. And they do not appear in the live tile.

I mark even as "Favorites" and are not shown on live tile.

For this reason I asked if there is a minimum specification for this type of file to display in WM10.

Yeah! I know! In WP8.1 it was.
But since I installed WM10 can not get the pictures displayed on the tile.

For example: The photos of contacts (even when I mark as "Favorites") are not displayed. But if I take a picture on the camera or get some for some social network, I can have it displayed normally in the live tile. Is not strange?

You makin confusion:
People live tile uses pics saved on peoples account, or taken by Hotmail, Twitter, Facebook. They will be never displayed in Photos live tile app. Save them so they will put in Saved folder, mark as favorite, and wait. Photos live tile (as People Live tile) isn't real time updated
Then, you forgot to change Photo Live tile settings from Recent to Favourites ;)

Thanks, but you are turning the problem into something else.

The problem is not how I use the photo files from my cell.

The photos are external, from my computador and outside the device (which I copied to him).

Are image files, just that.

And these images are not displayed on the live tile. This is the problem. :)

And I marked the photos as "Favorites" and I had changed the app's display settings from "Recent" to "Favourites". And... Nothing. :(

I understood well. You missing one point: Live Tile is not istant updated . It updates after an app or o.s. update.
Elsewhere try unpin and re-?in app on start screen
