If you are one of the thousands of people who have installed iOS 4 on your iPhone or iPod Touch you may have come across a message reading “Optimizing Photos”, apparently this is a very slow process, especially for iPhone 3G owners.
If you check Twitter it is hard not to notice thousands of people complaining about the “Optimizing Photos” process, apparently downloading and installing iOS 4 is a pretty quick process, however if you have a lot of photos on your iPhone you will have to wait a lot longer.
One Twitter user called jnsarra recently tweeted “can’t play with iOS4 until all 1400 of my photos are optimized – boo”, whilst another Twiiter user called Adinism recently tweeted “optimizing photos for my iPhone. 29 out of 2096. guh”
We are not quite sure exactly what the optimizing photos process does, however if you have not yet updated to iOS 4 and you want to avoid this being a slow process perhaps backup or delete some photos beforehand.
Are you stuck on a screen saying “Optimizing Photos”? If so, how long have you been waiting?
