I know there are some threads about the same iTunes crappy conversion, but they are all inactive and I've haven't found any that gives any kind of solution, so: why does iTunes convert high res into crappy sh*t whithout asking? Is there any workaround. It even makes bigger files. Optimization: high res --> low res, lower file Apple's optimization: high res --> very very low res, bigger file How come Apple ignores that as a minor issue, IT'S A HUGE PROBLEM! At least I would want to know which is the best file size (in the computer) for syncing: png, jpg, gif, tiff, tga...? 640x480? is that enough for zooming in? I would thank any answer.
