View Full Version : Pictures-Thumbnails or Hi-Res

27 April 2015, 12:07 PM
Do both thumbnails and Hi-Res pictures transfer to an iPad? I really only want the thumbnails as space can become an issue on both the iPad and Dropbox. Currently ReunionTouch shows image thumbnails correctly as I only have a few hundred and those hi-res don't take a lot of space, but adding more will increase the space requirements.
Is there a switch for thumbnails versus hi-res & thumbnails?

Do both thumbnails and Hi-Res pictures transfer to an iPad? If by "Hi-Res pictures" you mean the original image files or copies thereof, the answer is no.

For example, if you've linked somebody in Reunion to a 3000x3000 pixel image that requires 3 MB of disk space, that picture file is not saved inside the Reunion family file (and thus it is not utilized by the devices).

Using the same example, here's what does happen...

you link somebody to an original image file -- in our example, 3000x3000 pixels.
Reunion makes two thumbnail versions of the original image that are stored internally. One is 200x200, one is 1000x1000.
These thumbnails are used for different purposes.
ReunionTouch on your device never deals with the original image -- the big one.
ReunionTouch does use the two smaller renditions.
