    I recently went on a little vacation and we took quite a few photos. I noticed while looking thru some of them today that a bunch of them are cropped to about 75% of the original size.

    I always take my photos with the camera lens at the top left facing towards the object.

    Anyone have an idea of what's going on with this?

    I've only used the zoom feature once and it looks like a$$. I never use it any more.

    I tried pinching in on some photos and I can't get them to do display like they are. Zooming would require me to pinch a photo and I get the 75% cropped photo as I'm viewing some of them not any time else.

    No, I mean that when you took them you accidentally had the zoom turned on. I know it happened to me once, I never use the zoom either and then one day same type of thing.

    I don't think that's what is happening. I just looked at some of the photos again and they are now the full/correct size. weird!

    It must be some kind of bug that needs fixing.

    That's because it's digital and not optical zoom. You're loosing image quality each pixel you zoom.

    As said above, you might have zoomed in while taking the pictures. I have an IPhone myself and the pics have never been cropped yet. Check your settings or try out a demo once to know whether you did the wrong thing or not. The Picture is always great with IPhones. They serve you best and I have been such a admirer of this thing. Chuck out the zoom in.

    How come the photos that were once cropped are now properly fitted to the screen?

    None of the photos are cropped any longer, they're fine now.

    Sorry, I'm trying to do several things at once.

    As originally said I was browsing thru my photos and noticed that some of the photos in the photo library were cropped and that's when I posted the original post.

    Upon restarting the phone and browsing at the photos again, the photos are not cropped any longer and are showing/displaying correctly on my iPhone 4.

    It must have been a bug or something but they're fine.

    The original poster is right, there is a problem. I am currently seeing it on my iPhone 4 as well.

    The images are not zoomed. A portion of the photo is cropped off the left and what's left of the image is squashed into the bottom left corner with most of the screen above and to the right black, as is a sliver along the bottom and the left. If I try to zoom with two fingers, nothing happens. I can double tap it, however, and then zoom seems to work normally and the rest of the image is viewable if the image in moved far enough to see it. it looks as if the iPhone is simply displaying the image off center.

    I am glad to hear the OP's photos returned to normal. Hopefully
    mine will too.
