I have taken photo's when adding contacts, rather than taking a photo then assigning it to a contact, is there any way that i can transfer my contact pictures into my normal gallery or camera photo's as they're really nice pictures :(


Please help,
Thanksss.

You'll need to have a jailbroken device so that you can ssh into private/var/media/photos/thumbs. Your contact photos are stored as thumbnails.

Do you have OpenSSH installed on your phone?

You will also need a Mac or PC with an SSH client (WinSCP or Fugu/Cyberduck). Connect to your phone via WiFi. Once connected, look for the path I mentioned above, and drag the thumbnails to your desktop.

I'm going to bring this thread back....


Is the original file stored anywhere? More so than just a thumbnail?

Well I tried to locate that directory as thumbs are better than nothing and this is where I got lost.

/private/var

There is no media directory under var.

After searching around I found this directory, but the files are .ithmb and there's o nly a few. I listed them below.

/private/var/mobile/Media/Photos/Thumbs/

F3004_1.ithmb
F3008_1.ithmb
F3009_1.ithmb
F3011_1.ithmb

I'm not sure on what you are trying to do. I had attached a phone in Outlook and when they synched to my iPhone they were small pictures. So i moved the photos to my gallery and then assigned them to the contact. They now open full screen when the person calls.
Is this what you are trying to do?

I took photos as I was creating contacts at a recent reunion. Now those photos are not in the "Photos" icon on my iPhone. I tried to share the contact via email. When the contact card arrives with the picture in an email, I cannot open just the picture to save it on my computer in iPhoto. Any ideas?
