    The slowness of the photo app is a definite annoyance.

    And has anyone else noticed that you cannot resize an uploaded pic when making it a wallpaper? I had to stretch it to the size I wanted in the viewer, then take a screenshot when all of the menu icons went away and set the shot as my wallpaper. Worked just fine, but I thought it was weird.

    But i must say the SPEED of the camera pretty much makes up for all of the above. I've really never seen anything like it on a phone.

    What resolution are the pics in? Maybe it is the size that makes the rendering slow. It's been said iTunes "optimize photos" does not work and you have to choose original size. I don't have a Pre yet but I plan on exporting pics to 1280x960.

    Edit:
    Actually I'm going to try 3MP (2000x1500) because I figured this is about the iPhone/iPod Touch optimized equivalent.

    I agree, the time it takes to load each pic is absurdly slow.

    The phone needs to use a more efficient scaling algorithm

    It will save a screen shot in PNG and JPG format in a "screenshot" folder.

    I hope that with all this developer-mode stuff going on, that someone can figure out a setting to change to allow the Pre to buffer in the next image, or at least speed up the loading. Hell, pictures in the web browser load up faster than this application.

    Seems pretty bad to me, and I wonder if this is any kind of foreshadowing to capabilities of the Pre? Perhaps loading the image is too CPU/RAM intensive? I know the iPhone does this fine, which makes me think this is a bug.
    Did your HTC touch have a 3 megapixel camera on it?

    I agree, the photo app is to slow. Almost unusable...

    Its a bit annoying that it shows embedded mp3 photos as part of the library. Wish I could turn that off..

    No but my Touch Pro did. It rendered instantly. This is clearly bad programming, as the device is more than capable.

    I wish when I sync with Itunes, the categories would show up on the pre.....would make it easier to show pics

    I take a lot of pictures and i think this is the weakest aspect of the Pre.
    On my iPod Touch I loved how quick it changed from image to image.
    The speed of the Pre changing pictures and the slight blur makes me disappointed when im showing other people my pictures.

    Huge bump to this!
    Anyone have any workarounds?

    I wonder if the GPU not being utilized yet has anything to do with this? The pics are top notch though and I love this camera. Speed could be better but it's great for now.

    My biggest beef with the camera app is that it doesn't leave the last snapshot displayed on the screen! Would love to see it leave the last image there until you press the shutter button again. Everyone always wants to see the photo you just snapped of them! With the Pre, you have to press the photos button, wait for the photos app to come up, then press photo roll... takes forever!!!

    Sure the pics app renders larger images a bit slowly. But calling it unusable is just silly. It renders a hell of a lot faster than you could drive home, move the pics to your computer, and view them there.

    Not really--I usually choose to view them at home, because it's terrible. I can't show my friends on the phone. I just don't understand how my slower, old HTC Touch could render them instantly...
