    Sorry if the answer to this is obvious, but it seems that it is not to me...

    I want to put an image on my phone of the London tube map. It is approx 1500 x 1000 and I want to keep it this size so that I can use the zoom in to view specific stations and lines... is there a way to do this? Whenever I load it in via iPhoto, the image is so small that whenever I zoom in, it is all blurry.

    I also tried e-mailing the large image to myself, but it seems that in email you hardly get any zoom at all...

    Is this even doable? I seem to remember seeing a preference somewhere to turn off resizing when syncing from iphoto but I can't seem to find it.

    I leave for London in 4 hours, and will truly be lost without someone's help!!

    Thanks!

    Thanks for the link, however I need to have it with me, and can't afford to pay for web access while roaming.

    This will just make it a link in safari, correct?

    :confused:

    not sure if this works...save it as a pdf and email it to yourself to an account you can view on your iphone as an attachment. perhaps this allows for zooming.

    I figured out a way to view huge images on the iPhone! I was able to view my 5000px x 5000px image.

    programs i used to do this on mac: photoshop and numbers.

    -I first cut the image into parts of 1000px x 1000px in photoshop using slices so I had a total of 25 parts.

    -Using numbers i spaced 5x5 cells and in each cell 13.89 inches which is approximately 1000px

    -I inserted the parts in order in the 5x5 cells

    -email the saved numbers file to yourself and view on your iPhone

    There is a free app in the app store (in the uk at least) for the London Underground and I dont think you need a data connection to look at the map. I think the app is called Tube Map and I used it recently when I was working in London.

    Hope this helps
