    Is it just me or are the new "bubbles" used for contact pics just terribly done? Maybe I'm doing it wrong but it seems as though every picture is severely distorted, especially when used in group message.

    I'll submit this to apple but making sure I'm not the only one who thinks so first...?

    I like them as well. My best friend saw a screenshot from our group text with them and he actually wanted to install the Beta just for that reason.

    I really like them. I wish they were used more in Messages, rather than just group conversations.

    They're not new to beta four. It shows their picture in the bubble instead of their initials if they have one.

    I like having the picture bubbles, but I find it hard to actually center the picture on the contact's face (while editing contact details). Keeps ending up off center.

    I like them square but I don't really care one way or the other. I'm not seeing them in mail, didn't mail have a contact picture of who it's from?

    I still see them in mail for emails that are from contacts that have them.

    Mine have never been distorted so It might be a bug like you said. Seems fine on my iPhone 5

    I am more curious as to where the bathroom is on that boat.

    Totally fine with contact picture bubbles. And not all boats have bathrooms.

    Yeah, but the message said, "potty on board." I suppose the rail would suffice in a pinch. :)

    This same thing has been happening to me for over a year. After adding the photo and centering it perfectly, it gets moved up by the next time I view the contact, cutting their heads off...

    Anyone know how to prevent this?

    What are your contacts syncing with?

    I don't have that problem with Google contacts but I set the contact photos through the web portal.
