Question What size image (pixels) for contact photo?

I want to add some photos to my contacts.

What resolution does the N95 use?

I understand I can use a full-size image and the N95 will resize it but it seems overkill really.

As nj7 has already said, the N95 will store the RESIZED version of the contact photo in its contacts database, so there's no point in resizing them yourself.

If you delete the original photo after assigning it to a contact, the smaller resized version will remain and their picture will still be shown when they call.

But for the record, I think it's 96 pixels high by 80 pixels wide.

I dedcided to do it manually so I can cut a face out instead of using an entire image (which would be pointless @ 96x80 pixels.

Ah, I see. That's what I used to do.

In which case the ratio is of more use to you (1.2:1 or 0.8333:1 depending on how your image editing application displays it).

Most editing applications show you the current ratio when you create an editing window, so as long as you get this ratio as close as possible to the above-quoted figures the contact photos should look fine.
