    Re: BB compress picture?

    I don't think so, what I do is resize my pictures using photogaget, it's a free program, do a Google search. If you have a 320x240 screen I recommend resizing them to 640x480, they look the best that way in my experience. Also, it helps if the picture you are resizing is of the same general shape of your bb screen. For instance if you take a picture with a camera held vertically and then stretch it to fit your screen it won't look very good. If you resize a picture taken with a camera held normally it should look good when resized. That's my experience, I'm sure someone with more knowledge will be along shortly.

    I'd say it compresses, and compresses a lot. Picture quality gets reduced as well.

    Why don't you just use the USB cable or transfer it through Bluetooth?

    Because the BB in his/her profile doesnt allow that.

    No matter how you get the picture to your BB you will find the same results.

    You can try a third party app (Berrypix, I think?) that can get you around the MDS compression.
