‘Remember to regularly check app settings to make sure that  photos will be saved and exported at your preferred resolution and fit for purpose. This may be done either from your device’s SETTINGS  menu or from inside an app: via the home screen or from the editing screen. Some apps give you multiple export options. Lo-mob is an example…



Lo-mob‘s export resolution settings are accessed from the app’s home screen by selecting the little cog icon at the top left.



Once inside Lo-mob‘s Settings Menu, scroll down and select your Export Settings. REMEMBER you’ll need to do this before you shoot or import an image. These settings don’t function retrospectively’.

    I was caught out with this recently after reinstalling Swankolab. It defaults to a lower resolution and I only spotted it after editing a few pictures. Luckily I hadn’t posted so it was a case of re-editing after changing it to high resolution in the iPhone settings app. Great tip Nettie, very useful.
