Help! How do I set my iPhone 5 to always take the largest possible image resolution?

Ever since Apple released the iPhone 6 and I upgraded my iPhone 5 to the latest IOS, I started having troubles with my phone taking tiny resolution images sometimes and full resolution images other times. I did think that I was making any changes. The iPhone seemed to have been making up its own mind, and I couldn't find any information online regarding the changing image size of my images. I'd end up with tiny images like this one...

Help! How do I set my iPhone 5 to always take the largest possible image resolution?

With some trial and error I realized that it has to do with the different tone options. If you want the largest possible resolution for an image, make sure that you haven't accidentally brushed your finger across the color tone options and picked out one of the options like "process". I realize now that is why this image is blue.

If you want the largest resolution image, make sure your iPhone camera is set to "none" for the color tone options.


So, why do I have these problems?

Well, for me it is because I had one iPhone photography mishap that cost me hundreds of dollars, so it seems that when I'm gripping my phone like a mad woman while squinting at the screen in bright sunlight, I don't catch when I brush a finger across the color option.

The ideas discussed in this video brought to mind one mistake I see photographers making when they're selling their photos on custom products in the Zazzle marketplace. There can be a tendency of new (and some experienced) shopkeepers to want to showcasing their entire photo on the custom products available at Zazzle rather than fill the design area available.

Below is an example of what a rounded corner mouse pad would look like if I fit the photo to the mousepad. It would have large white borders.

Below is what the mouse pad looks like when the image fills the entire design area.

Cropping, even extreme cropping, can be our friend. Cropping off some of the Lake Tahoe shoreline doesn't take away from the subject of this photo. We can still see the blue water and shoreline. But, large white borders at the top and bottom definitely distracts…

What is it that you love? Let the world know what you love the most with this fully customizable tee. The "Fill in the Blank" text below the "I Heart" design can be changed.

As you can see in the image below, the size of the heart design can change if needed to match the added text.
