    Hi,

    Sorry if this seems a really stupid question, but haven't been able to find the answers anywehre else on the forum.

    When I am taking photos on my White 16GB iPhone 5, it seems to be putting the same black borders around my photos that are there on Apps that haven't been updated to work with iPhone 5 yet...

    Is this normal and if not, is there a way to change the settings etc.

    Thanks in advance, apologies if waste of time also :)

    Cheers

    I cant believe Apple didnt upgrade the camera in the iPhone 5 to take widescreen static photos to be honest. :confused:

    That would be awful for anything other than viewing photos on the iPhone 5; however, what would have been good would be the option to do that or just having 4:3 photos scale up to fit the height of the screen.

    To the OP, your photos do not have black bars, if you print the photos there are no black bars.

    You can crop it on the phone and save as wallpaper. You wanted a wide screen phone didn't you? :rolleyes:

    In many ways this is good as it will teach people to think about their photo compositions more. You don't have to resize it on your computer as you can aducst the scale and crop of your photos before making them wallpapers without altrering your original file.

    Thanks...

    Cheers all, just wondered if I had the wrong settings.

    As someone has said, I just uploaded a test image to the MacBook and it doesn't have any black borders.

    Thanks again.
