Iphone

I have taken a photo on my IPHONE that I copied to my laptop when I attempted to upload it I received an error message stating it must be a JPEG which it is....can anyone offer a reason it could not upload or a better way to get it from my iphone to my laptop without losing any pixels.

The size is not the iissue FA is not reading it as a JPEG. I have tested other sites and they are reading correctly.

How are you copying it? iPhones, by default, save jpg files that should work with most software. I've done it zillions of times, either by e mailing an image that I receive on the other computer or by connecting my phone to the computer directly via USB. If you're using a Mac, there's a utility, Image Capture, for doing exactly that, but I'm not sure about a PC. As far as I know, iPhones save a generic jpg by default unless you use one of the third party apps that can save other formats like RAW files.

If you e mail the image from Photos, there's an option to save a smaller version that loses pixels, but be aware of that when you tag the picture that's to be e mailed.

Renee, newer iPhones are defaulting images made to the HEIC format, which preserves image quality/resolution but take up less space on your disc. So make sure it’s not in that format. If it’s a true JPEG, then I don’t know what the problem is.

I am copying the image to a PC through a USB it is saying it is a JEPG but Eric maybe you are right. How do I check Eric?

Ahhh, I just looked under format-I have High Efficiency checked off it seems i need to have Most Compatible....I can upload to FA from phone with no problem.

Renee, when I do use my iPhone for images I plan to upload, I make sure the phone camera is on “Most Compatible” (go to Camera -> Formats) to ensure you get JPEGs. Even after, you can switch formats either in-phone or online (Google it).

Seems that the transfer from APPLE directly to FA is fine but not the transfer from APPLE to PC to FA. Anyone?

As stated above, it's not saving as a proper jpg.

Open in an editor, any editor
Save

It will upload

FWIW, I never upload a jpeg directly from my iPhone to FAA. I want to edit it first. So I email each jpeg to myself from my phone, UNcompress it (because jpegs are compressed files), edit it, then export back as a jpeg for uploading to FAA.

 

@Eric - I, too, always transfer from iPhone to desktop/laptop via email.

I seem to never have any losses that way. After editing in PS Elements - I always save as a .psd AND then as a JPEG (for uploading to FAA. It always works.
