    Hi all,
    I have loaded about 60 photos on to my iPad 3, when viewing them they appear blurry for a few seconds,which can vary from 2 to 6 seconds before they become clear. When I view them in a slideshow in Albums they do not have time to become clear before moving to the next slide, thus they are virtually un watchable. I'm sure I did not have this problem in the past when viewing photos. Advice please

    Do you think it's because of the amount of megapixel of the picture that might be effecting the time it loads?

    skimmonkey, thank you for the reply.
    Good thinking, you may be right. Do you know what is the recomended max, or where I can find out? What I can't understand though is when played in "Photos" or "Albums" they are fuzzy/blurry as stated above in my first post, but when played in "Photo Frame" mode, they view o.k.

    Hello Anthony,
    Have you tried increasing the time in which each photo is viewed during a slide show? This may fix your problem

    Hi Anthony--I tried to find an absolute max for image size/megapixel. Since you didn't give me specifics I can only assume that the pics that you have loaded are at least 5 MP or more? Loading and then viewing high graphic pics could be the issue depending on which iPad type you have and the amount of RAM capacity it has. This happens to me quite a bit with high graphic PDFs I view. So maybe this is what is happening to you.

    I am no expert in photography/image to screen concepts, so I will let others who know chime in. However, this is my guess as to what may be happening. Hope that helps. :)

    I have looked at the size of the photos on the PC, they seem to vary from 5mb to 12mb / photo. I thought good that may be the problem, but no. On checking some of the larger photos are o.k, and some of the smaller sized show fuzzy.

    P.S
    Is there a way to check the size of a photo when they are on the iPad 3 ?.

    Forgot to mention in my previous posting that changing the viewing time from 5 sec to 10sec does seem to cure the problem, but seems way to long when view large amounts of photos.
    Is there a way to may be set the time to 6/7 secs ?

    Hi Anthony - let me just make a few comments that might help: 1) Your iPad 3 has 'retina display' (1536 x 2048 pixel size) which is 4X the resolution compared to by iPad 2; however, that device has the same CPU as my older iPad, i.e. 1 GHz A5X (the newest iPad has a 1.3 GHz A6X processor and is faster); and 2) the overall pixel 'area' on your retinal iPad is still only 3 MP (see the chart below) - SO, I suspect that your iPad 3 is trying to portray rather LARGE images (5 to 12 MB as above) on a high-resolution screen using a slower CPU. You might try to 're-size' your images before putting the pics on the iPad or reduce the size on the iPad w/ the appropriate app - will this work? Not sure but simple to test.

    Just to mention 2 apps on my iPad that can provide metadata on your photos there, give iPhoto or Photogene a try - the latter will also allow you to export your images at a smaller size. Finally, if not already done, go through the quoted steps below, i.e. 'Force Close' the native Photo app and check; if not effective, do the other suggestions in sequence and check after each maneuver - probably will not help but who knows - you're basically re-booting a computer. Good luck and let us know your results - Dave :)

    giradman,
    thank you for the info. If I understand correctly, the photo size that is ideal for the iPad 3 is 1536 x 2048. So for a general size photos, my photos need cropping at 5in x 7in @ 300ppi ?
