CS5.5 iOS App Graphics Quality

Feb 9, 2012 10:25 AM

Tags: #app #cs5.5 #ios #graphics #development #quality

Hello Adobe community,

 

Thanks for helping me out today. Here's my issue: I am designing my whole app in photoshop and currently in the process of moving all of the images to flash to add interactivity. The promblem is, when we put the app on the iphone the quality of the graphic is lowered for some reason.

 

When I am building in photoshop my settings:

640px by 960px

72 ppi

Saving out as a .jpg

 

When I send the jpg as a picture to my iphone 4 and view it in my "Photos" app, it looks great, but on the test app it loses quality.

 

Does anyone have anyone have any idea whats going on here?

 

Thanks,

If I left something out that could help please tell me so I can add it!

    in flash, right click the bitmaps in the library, click properties and tick "allow smoothing".

    no, smoothing should work with the iphone.  but, if you're publishing for the iphone, use bitmaps sized correctly for the iphone.

    then there's no resizing needed. 

     

     

    check your publish settings (file/publish settings/swf) to see if you're publishing jpeg's with less than 100% quality.

    so, you've "imported" the bitmap to your fla's library?  if yes, and you're not resizing the bitmap, are you using "high" resolution in the iOS publish settings?

    that setting is in the "general" tab for the iOS publish settings.
