    Is there a way to chose the picture's resolution?

    I took picture with an iPhone 12 Pro and the maximum image file is 1Mo. How can I increase the quality?

  • George Brown


    Due to the technology we are using for Pix4Dcatch, the resolution is limited by the device hardware and manufacturer provided SDKs, currently the resolution cannot be increased.

    Kind Regards
