    htc 8x.
    my 8X allows me to select 'upload at best quality' which is WiFi only. Your carrier must have disabled the option for some reason even though its WiFi only so would have no effect on their network

    That could be it, although as you say, it makes no sense.
    Thanks anyhow.

    don't go to the SkyDrive app.

    Go to settings and slide over to application settings, select photos+camera.

    There you will find the option to auto upload to SkyDrive, select it and you will see the auto upload settings for photos and video, choose best quality.

    Now whenever you take new pictures the photos app will display new uploads waiting and when you connect to a WiFi network the new photos will start uploading to SkyDrive in full resolution!

    This option is not available on my phone. I am in Singapore and Nokia has confirmed this feature is not available for us...as usual.

    I am using the L920 and have the same limitation. It's not by the carrier as I bought mine from the Nokia's appointed shop at retail price.

    Similarly, we are still waiting for the Portico update. Different settings in different markets, pretty stupid!

    I have the portico update and the option for high quality is not there. So it's a restriction based on the region of where your phone was sold.
    Solution: If you really want to have a pic with the original resolution saved on skydrive, you can go to your "photos hub", go on the desired picture(s) and choose "save to skydrive". It will upload the picture with its original size in the Mobile Uploads on your skydrive account. Hope it helps.

    Yeah, but what about if I don't want ALL my photos auto-uploaded?! I want to be able to pick and choose which photos I want uploaded to Skydrive, and when, and THEN I want to be able to decide full res or not... is that possible??

    Open up your camera roll, select the image, bring up menu, save to skydrive.

    There is never a need to attach a full size image, and I wish the iphone would not have this option. I want a link to download the attachment, I know dropbox makes this easy...and on our WP8 it is easy to share with skydrive. Every time someone sends me 5 images from their iphone, I want to smack them! This is why I am also happy that our phones don't download images automatically. I call it an ***** control. I would not want to wait 10 minutes for a work email because a friend decided to send me 12 pictures of their dog.

    I've done that, several times. The photos are only 2.4mp when they get to SkyDrive...

    I assume you mean that the *need to attach* is obviated by the option to send a link through skydrive, and not that there is never a need to *share* full size images. Pretty much any time I share an image with someone I want them to get full resolution.

    If MS wants to force us to use skydrive to send full res, then it should be an option under the Share menu. If you press "Share", you should then see "Message, Mail, Skydrive Link, Facebook, Twitter, etc.". Don't force me to upload, then exit Photos, enter Skydrive, drill down through my folders, select the picture, then share it. That sequence basically destroys the entire "integrated" notion of WP8.

    Yes that is what I meant, and you right on the second part as well.

    so just to clarify, and I'm asking honestly b/c I don't know... but is 3.32 MB the correct size for a full 8mp image??

    and why is mine saving at 2.4 instead?!?

    Can't agree with that. It's an unnecessary restriction and a hindrance that's all it is. Your email argument doesn't hold either cos you see your emails in preview mode before you open and download the whole attachment.

    If this was the way iOS or Android worked no doubt it will be plastered all over these forums as a big advantage of WP over them.

    Hi Guys,

    from the earlier posts, i also experienced pic files size of 2-3MB, in formats of ( 3352 x 2000 or 2448 x 3264 ) in various shooting conditions (day & light).
    the biggest size that i ever managed to upload to skydrive is around 6MB (due to post-processing on Nokia Creative Studio)

    anyone here is able to capture images with file size above 4MB ??? (in original pic without processing )

    also i will like to check, the pics that we upload via the Microsoft Facebook app is in "High Definition mode" or standard mode'

    cheers!

    Nope and it is a pain.
    You do have third party apps that will share pics at a higher resolution but it should be a native feature.
    Which app?
