I have pixelated camera shots in iPhone.

Asked By 0 points N/A Posted on -

Hi! I am having problems with my iPhone 4s and I am hoping you could help me.

I recently got an iPhone 4s and I transferred all my files from my previous phone which was an iPhone 4. Everything was fine until my iTunes started acting up.

My Camera app suddenly froze so I reset my phone to exit the camera roll. However, when I looked at the photos I took, I noticed that they were all pixelated—there seemed to be little black and grey boxes in them.

The photos would look fine when I check it on the preview after taking them, but they become pixelated whenever I view them from the folder. However, the videos remained of fine quality.  I tried closing the app but the photos remained pixelated.

I am really hoping you could explain to me what’s wrong and if there’s something I can do about it.

Thank you very much.

Hello Melanie Amaro,

I will suggest two fixes for you and see if they will help you out. First fix, download the iphoneexplorer from the following site:


Once you have it, you will need to go to the photodata folder, and from there delete the following files:

  • com.apple.photos.caches_metadata.plist
  • Photos.sqlite
  • PhotosAux.sqlite

That should fix the problem you are having completely.

The second fix that I will recommend is the following. Just open the link below, and you will find a clear step by step procedure that you will follow, and thereafter you will not have any problems with viewing your pictures again.
