No, photos are uploaded to OneDrive at a reduced resolution. In my case, photos seem to be all in 539x719. To get the full resolution photos, sync your phone with Zune and they should appear in your Pictures library.

Office Lens applies additional corrections to the photos it takes. Mainly it tries to recognise the subject (e.g. a document) and crop the image to it. This means you'll end up with a neatly trimmed and aligned image even if you took the photo at an angle. You can see a real-time preview of exactly what the resulting image is going to include on your phone ...

This is not possible. The choice of Microsoft not to support this is security. If you download html or images automatically the sender could see if you read the message for example by checking if you downloaded the image. Hotmail supports whitelisting senders. would be great if you could also do this on your Windows Phone device but that's currently not ...

Note: The answer below assumes you're using the Nokia Camera app. Most of it should also apply to the regular Camera app, except the part about manual focus controls. Tapping on the screen selects that point of the scene for automatic focus and exposure adjustment - the camera app will make sure the point you tapped is in focus and properly exposed (i.e. ...

I was pleasantly surprised to discover that if I connect my phone via USB to my computer, then one of the options that comes up is to "Import pictures and videos using Windows Live Photo Gallery" which I have installed on my computer. This gives you various options for the Folder name, including: Date Imported + Name Date Taken + Name Date Taken Range + ...

If you don't want to have it on OneDrive you will need to upload it with a Twitter app which will then use TwitPic or something else. The file needs to be somewhere (on the web) if you want to show it. The default way for Windows Phone is to send it to your OneDrive account.

As far as I know there is no option to automatically do that for you. This to prevent data usage when you get email with big image files in it.

Zune doesn't do this, but there are a lot of utilities that do. Here is one I found called Picture Sorter. This should work with any images, not just those taken with your phone.

You can by email but not to facebook. Open a new email message and click on the attach icon. Once you've attached one pic then click on the Attached icon again and so on. Think there's an app available via the Marketplace you can use to upload multiple images to facebook.

I'm not quite sure what exactly is creating your Documents & Photos folders, but it is not the "Camera roll bonus". This bonus was added to your account when the automatic upload was active once and it is by design that this wont disappear after you deactivate it. This bonus storage will disappear by January 31st 2016 if you do not object. Also, this ...

SMS (Short Message Service) doesn't support pictures or other similar content, only plain text. Perhaps you're referring to MMS (Multimedia Messaging Service) instead?

I don't know if I really understand but: In the Pictures Hub just below "Camera Roll, Albums, etc..." you can se a "upload(s) waiting" message. Tap it and all pictures waiting for upload will show. Long press an hit cancel. I think you can't do multiple actions here. Need to be one by one.

For this topic, a sample image of samplePhoto.jpg is used. Use a properly sized image in your app. Background images should be between 480 x ...

After upgrading to Windows Phone 8.1 I noticed the storage usage had moved to "Other" from photos. Turns out the Mac app for windows can't display or delete DNG files even though it can import them. The phone also doesn't show DNG files in the camera roll if the associated JPG files have been removed. Plugging the phone into a Windows 8 machine, and ...

The reason you see this happens is because your phone only syncs your pictures to OneDrive when it takes them. Once you take a picture it is saved locally. At the phone's earliest convenience, it will upload the file to OneDrive. Changes to your pictures in OneDrive do not sync back to your phone. Also if you delete a photo from your phone, the copy in ...
