I have just bought an IPad 32Gb wifi with retina, and have transferred from the PC (via ITunes) the family photo album.  We have been viewing these on a Sony photo frame from a memory stick and they look great on this.  The Ipad has a similar screen size, but they are really grainy and look so poor that its just annoying.  Why has the picture quality been degraded to such an extent?  Have I missed a setting somewhere?

iPad, iOS 6.0.2

    What is the resolution of the photos?

    If you get an App like iPhoto on the iPad you can see the current resolution/size of the photos on the iPad to see if some resolution has been lost in the transfers.

    Did you transfer photos to iPad using the Camera Connection Kit?

    I did not suggest using iPhoto to "get around the problem". I suggested using it to find out what the problem is. IPhoto wouldn't solve this problem anyway.

     

    What exactly is the screen size of the Sony picture frame that you have?

     

    Do you know what the horizontal and vertical pixel dimensions are?

     

    How does this compare with the retina iPad which has a screen size of ~7.75'' x 5.8'' and a resolution of 2048 x 1536?

    Yes something may have been done to the file. If the pictures were taken on a 5MP camera they shold have a resolution of something like 2592 x 1944.

     

    That doesn't seem to be what is getting to the iPad. That's why I recommended using an App like iPhoto to see what is actually on the iPad.

    Sync photos are so call "optimized" on the iPad. The file size after syncing is smaller.

     

    I prefer to use the CCK with no loss of quality.
