I have a 16mp DSLR and when I import my photos they report the right megapixel count. If I make an edit and export the image it is reduced to 11.2 megapixels and has a file size of 2mb.


Why is it doing this and how can I make it export at the native resolution of 16 megapixels?


Apple said it supports upto 19mp files so what gives?!



iPhone 3GS, iOS 4.3.2
