    Question HELP: Trouble with Contacts "Move and Scale" photos?

    On my iPhone 4 fw4.2.1, greenpois0n JB'd. There's a problem editing a photo in the Contacts app. It won't move OR scale. If I pinch to shrink the photo as soon as I let go it snaps back to full size.

    The iPhone user manual says click to edit the photo then "move and scale." It doesn't say how!

    I selected an image from the camera roll and it failed. I thought to take a photo and it failed as well.

    I wondered could it be a permissions error but I was able to open the placed photo and edit it and it saved just fine.

    The Contacts app didn't complain when I created the new contact.

    Could it be an OS 4.2.1 bug? A JB bug? An Andy bug?

    Could a stock iPhone 4 fw4.2.1 owner and a greenpois0n JB 4.2.1 owner try the "move and scale" feature in the Contacts app to validate right or wrong behavior on both?

    I'm left scratching my head.

    Best,

    Andy

    Sorry, that was vague. I was able to edit the camera-roll file using the "CameraBag" app, apply a beautiful fisheye effect and saved it back to the camera roll. I then placed the fisheye file back to the contact image but still refused to behave.

    Heck! A little help would've been appreciated.

    I guessed wrong.
