    Has anybody noticed that when you add a reasonable image (not full screen necessarily) then you click on the image in the Contacts app, it shows as being much lower quality then the original?

    Maximum size of a contact photo is set to 224 KB. I think this explains a lot. Source: http://support.apple.com/en-us/HT202158

    Perfect! Thanks for the link.
    I guess this changed with iOS8 because before that, images were all much higher quality.
    I can see why they did it though
