    I have the iPad mini with retina display. I also have the Nikon D800/E cameras, which have 36.3 megapixel sensors. When I load a full Rez image onto the iPad, (7360 x 4912) it doesn't save it as such. Instead I get / have a resolution of 4602 x 3072 instead of my full size from the D800. Does anyone have an explanation for this? Why does the iPad reduce the actual size of the image?

    You can't display a picture on an ipad that is greater than the resolution of an ipad retina screen so it gets reduced by iPad.

    iPad/Apple have always done this.

    They might be good for general viewing but do not use the iPad as a storage/backup device.

    Personally, I wish the photos were at the zoomed in resolution. I don't need high res images, but I would like them to be crisp when I double tap on them.

    How are you loading the photo onto the iPad (iTunes sync, CCK, download from cloud, import from some Nikon WiFi app?). That'll make all the difference in the world.

    If you're syncing from iTunes, Apple resizes the images for you, because they seem to know what's best for you.

    I am either loading them from iTunes by the selected photo folder, not iPhoto. The other way is direct from the camera connection kit directly off of the SD card. The issue I have is I sometimes upload these images to my website and I want them to be full size and large JPEG files. So if there is now way to get the files larger on the iPad, then I'll use them as big as they get and upload the original files from my laptop.

    Thanks for all the replies.
