    Anyone know what I can do to fix an issue displaying photos on a projector using an iPad.

    If I copy the photos into a Keynote (power point) presentation, they display fine, look great and the aspect ratio stays perfect. However, if I use the built in slide show/photo app, they crunch down into 4:3 aspect ratio and thus do not appear correctly.

    There are no settings to correct within the application which stinks and since they display fine when copied to a presentation, it's not the projector.

    Why is this ?

    VGA adapter cable. iPad v1 so if there's a better way, let me know.

    I'm wondering if the projector has to squish it because the iPad is not 16x9?

    If I copy the images into Keynote they show fine and look great. It's only if I use the built in Photo app that they appear like crap via VGA.

    Thanks! There seem to be a number of apps that can help display web pages but what about other stuff through the VGA? Narrowing them down is tough. Especially since I'm not really interested in dropping $3-$5 a pop to try them.
