    When on my iMac I'll grab an image and shrink them to 300x300 so that when a contact calls me, their picture shows in the top right corner of the screen.

    If I select a photo for a contact from my iPhone, when the person calls me the picture takes up the whole screen and is very blurry.

    How does it look in iOS 7 when someone calls you?

    Do you guys use the small picture in the top right or have your pictures take up the whole screen?

    Since I made all my contacts' pictures 300x300 will that cause them to look blurry in iOS7?

    At least for me, whenever I put a picture inside OSX AddressBook it syncs that picture with the iPhone and shows it small in the right top corner, then if I go and try to edit the picture inside the phone then it shows fullscreen. I don't know if it's possible to select one over the other, I just load all the pics in my mac and then let it sync in the cloud so I don't have big pictures. THe best way to keep good quality is loading the picture directly from the phone I would think.

    No, the high-res contact photo come up as full screen when they call in, however once picked up the photo is blurred out for the on screen controls... this is the new intended behaviour of the Phone App.

    Note - If iOS is seing the contact pic as very low res then you get the small bubble with picture on top right. If it sees it as high-res then fullscreen with autoblur later

    Ok gotchya. I feel like when I used to set a contact's picture right from my iPhone that even though it's a high res pic, when I call them it's still blurry and takes up the whole screen.

    Sanjeev so what you're saying is that even with iOS 7 if I have the 300x300 picture for my contacts that it still will show up in the top right corner and not the full screen like this?
