    Default picture size is actually 1920x1080 assuming you are playing the game 1080p. His is double 1920x1080, and probably has something to do with "photo mode"

    A digital camera will give you a super high resolution photo for professional printing, and I am sure that is what GT5 gives you also.


    EDIT: just looked at gamefaqs, and this game sits at #1 on both game and boards, ahead of COD:BO on both.

    I couldn't see Forza on the top 10. I guess it is easy to get bored with a game that has no depth! :D

    1920x1080 is the default game resolution, but the default picture resolution is 1620x1080, for some reason it cuts off a bit of space on each side of the pictures.

    And thats nice to see COD getting beat :)

    you know what i just realized, i set the aspect to 16:9 instead of whatever it starts at. maybe that is why.
    cadaveca and 1Kurgan1 say thanks.

    It has to be, I didn't bother looking at your horizontal number before, but everyone else is getting 1620, which is a bit off 16:10. But 3840 / 2 is 1920, so your just getting really high def images, I'll have to give that a shot, thats awesome!

    Not only did it knock COD off the top, it did it with only 4 days worth of sales not a whole week :rockout:

    '62 Buick Special (fully tuned w/ $300K bill to rebuild chassis) is my new best friend. It is a donkey to maneuver (brilliant on bank turns) like the Stingray, but it makes it up on the straights. I did the supercar challenge with it, beating McLaren F1, ZR-1, Viper ACR, Veyron, etc.

    Also the Dome-Zero Concept (stock) is a freaking drift machine. So easy to flick it in a corner and control it.

    How did you get the Ferrari pictures to be 1920x1080?

    Has anyone worked out exactly why some peoples pictures are scaling differently and not 1620x1080?

    You need to press triangle when lining up the picture, to get the camera menu and set the aspect to 16:9
    You also need to be in 1080p mode or you get the resolution of my F1 pics.

    Still not sure why Easy Rhino's pics are twice the size of everyone else's
