    Is there any way to shrink the file size of these photos? I just want it to look look good on the ipod touch screen... I don't need the ability to zoom in or display them on a tv.

    Most of the files in my "ipod photo cache" folder are 800kb - 1mb. If I could get that down to 100kb or so per picture, I could save a lot of room. :D

    Any ideas? I really don't want to resize a bunch of pictures 1 by 1.

    iTunes resizes the pictures before it sends them to the iPhone/Ipod Touch

    The iPod Photo Cache folder is not, repeat not copied as it is to the iPod..... its a collection maintained by iTunes of the original photo metadata and otherstuff including stuff like which iPod is synced with what pics and what is the res at which the iPod was synced....

    P.S.: Wow... a TEAPOT Touch?:D [Thread Title]
