Iphone photo ratio and Form Picture Box

Postby Treanot » Sat Feb 21, 2015 3:55 pm

I'm having a problem keeping the aspect ratio of a photo taken with an iphone 5 and viewed in my form, even with scale image to fit set on. From what I have gathered, the iphone 5 takes a photo in 4:3 aspect ratio (but I can be wrong) It seems with the new IOS the iphone views it in a 3:2 aspect ratio and this bothers some people, because the photos are actual 4:3 and I guess it doesn't scale. Regardless of of 4:3 or 3:2 it still the same ratio with a scale to fit option on, which is 100 width and 75 height, unless I am missing something. This still seems to still distort the image, and so does 100 height and 100 width.
Anyone else experience this and solved this issue. I will try 75 height by 100 width next but I am doubtful that it will be correct.

Try 100 x 66...... that is 3:2 aspect ratio
Have a good day

I'm having issues with photos on the iPhone app. Some images fit the screen, some do not, and about half the time it closes the app when viewing a photo. Something I can change to improve this without having to resize all my photos?
