    The photos on my Motorola Droid are very slow to come into focus. It's frustrating and embarrassing -- my friends with iPhones just smile sadly at the poor performance. What can be done?
    THANKS.

    half press, let focus and take pic.

    mess around with settings and see what you get as far as macro, focus, etc.

    Problem is with photos already on SD Card...

    Thanks for the input, but the problem is with photos already on the SD card, (generally) ones that I've copied over from my MAC. As I said originally, once they come into focus, they look great... alas, it takes a while (often close to 30 seconds - or more) to load and display properly.

    I'm not familiar with the various gallery apps. From my research I get the sense that part of the problem may be the size of the photos. I tried searching for an app that would do a batch re-size but so far have had no luck. (It's frustrating trying to figure out how to "define" a search to bring up the desired results -- generally anything with "gallery" in the search terms brings up stuff about wallpaper... anything with "photos" brings up stuff about taking them.) Any suggestions?
