Camera Image Resolution



I have recently developed an app which makes use of the camera control. Everything is working as intended, except one thing, the resolution of the photos is 640x480. Apparently this is limited by PowerApps. This constraint will push me towards other development frameworks like Cordova/Ionic, Xamarin, etc...  I hope we can see some changes in the near future.


Best regards,

Hey everyone, we hear the feedback, and agree that there are scenarios where using Add picture control is not feasible.  We are discussing our options now, and will report back on this thread.

any news, it's a joke that we get such low quality (circe 1980's) from a 12MP camera

do you know if it is possible to reduce the quality of the picture. 

640 x 480 is to big to display the picture than on powerbi

I would love an update if there is a decision or timeline. Given privacy issues relating to taking pictures of personal documents controlling the stream capture (Avoiding saving a local copy of a picture) is a requirement for compliance. It would be great to set resolution up to 1080p or 4k if one could dream.

I'd like an update on quality too

This is really frustrating, as the deployment of Intune by our Corporate IT security department has now made it next to impossible to upload reasonably sized images into SharePoint as it would appear to remove the "Optimize images for upload" button option with PowerApps on mobile devices with native cameras.


So a MS app now degrades another MS about the left and right hand not knowing what they are doing!
