PS Vita could not handle high resolution images?

#1KupinPosted 2/17/2013 1:18:53 AM
I tried putting images bigger than 1080p resolution (above 1920 width pixels) to my PS Vita, but some images are unreadable; the images show question mark sign and the image cannot be viewed. But, when resized to 720p (1280 pixel width, using my image editing in my computer), the image can be viewed, which is very weird.

Then, when I tried putting some images that I took with my DSLR camera, the images are readable, but they cannot be viewed in the original size (3200 pixels above). Seems like the images have been downscaled because when I zoomed in, the images appear blurry.

My PSP Go somehow can view the high-res images like normal, although it takes time to load the image when I zoomed in and selected it.

Also, PS Vita did not do a pretty good job on cropping the image. I tried using the 'Trim and save' image feature, and the cropped images look a bit pixelated, had some jagged edges and not smooth at all.

Well, let's say that this situation would probably happened if you don't have a computer or laptop with you (you are travelling somewhere), you want download to images from internet, using Vita web browser and make them as a wallpaper for your Home background.

First problem, the high-res image will be downscaled and you lost some of the details of the images..
Second, the cropped/trimmed image quality is worst. Third, even if you set high-res image directly as a background, the quality looks worst because they look a bit pixelated and very noticeable to some images that have darker colors.

I know you can just simply use any program on the computer to edit the image beforehand ( I prefer Irfanview since it's fast and easy to use), but of course the transfer system using Content Manager is suck, so I rather doing it fast on my Vita instead.

So,I hope Sony had some firmware patches that could improve the trimmed image and image wallpaper quality and make the system to read the images in the original resolutions; rather than downscaled them.

Huh. I didn't know that the vita couldn't handle really high res images. Maybe this is something Sony could fix in a vita firmware update. Although I doubt they would take the time to fix something like this.

This but like stated something that can easily be fixed with a firmware update.

What I find weird is that sometimes the high res images work.. sometimes it appears as a "?" and doesn't.

I just don't get it.

I often get that "?" even with low resolution images and find it's quite annoying, but you can fix it by simply change the picture's type to other types (PNG, BMP etc). High res images work fine to me.

What I find interesting is that people try to put images on their Vita

It doesn't meet the industry standard of 720p to be considered HD. However, compared to the 3DS, it looks HD.

I had exactly the same problem with my iPad 3. I wanted to check out that gorgeous screen so I've downloaded some huge photos but when I zoomed them in they were blurry and looked bad. It's a common problem for mobile devices, even the almighty iPad: http://apple.stackexchange.com/questions/63896/how-to-view-high-res-images-in-ipad-3-without-downsampling

iTunes and/or photo viewer automaticly downscale photos so it uses less resources and you can browse them faster. I think it's the same on the Vita.
