    Every time I send or receive an image via iMessage, on top of the image is a transparent bubble. Does anyone know what this is for?

    Unless, I'm missing something, I don't see that in the image that you posted. Can you please a test iMessage to someone, and then post said image for us to see?

    Can you see the white band across the top of the image? It's like there should be text there or something.

    Now that is bazaar. In settings, turn off iMessage, restart the device, and then turn iMessage on again. Once done, perform another test...

    I'm positive that is just the thumbnail attempt at an emboss effect on the image, giving it an OS X aqua type feel to the thumbnail. It's on all of mine as well, as well as on my son's. I think it's in the masking of that thumbnail.

    That sounds about right. I has the feeling I could add text to it at one point but your theory seems better!

    I think it means the message is being read by the person receiving it.

    Looking at the files in the chatkit dir, my guess is that it's the ImageBubbleUntailed@2x.png file that is adding that effect. But there are a few in there that could be the culprits.

    *edited for proper filename

    This is what the full image looks like, prior to being stretched across the face of the thumbnail images we send/receive. It's similar to the balloons that have text in them. You can see the area in question.
