    Mine look compressed and their file size show most running under 100kb, for 5+ gb pics.
    I'm looking in data/media/android/data/com.android.gallery3d/cache

    Where are you seeing full size pics cached?

    I think they are compressed on the xoom. Not as poor as thumbnails but not full size either. Maybe somebody who's rooted can find them and let us know?
    UK Wi-Fi Xoom. Unlocked with ICS, but not rooted

    * When you UPLOAD from the XOOM to Picasa, they are uploaded full size into the Picasa web gallery.

    * When you are VIEWING Picasa web albums in your XOOM's default gallery app, they are not full resolution.

    I found the easiest way to make this obvious was to import some full-res photos from my 14MP DSLR (which is a glorious experience on the XOOM!), and then sync them with Picasa. Then look at the Picasa web albums in your gallery app on the XOOM, compared to online and the originals.

    Yeah I knew about the upload from xoom to picasa being full size :-D I love that, now I just pop my camera chip into my xoom and upload pics that way (just wish i could upload the video files to picasa in the same manner)

    Now that I can keep my music library on the SD chip, ill be able to sync my fotos, just took too much room that way. I have 40gigz of pictures on picasa.


    Thanks for taking time to check and reply

    I just happen to be working with some Picasa stuff right now and noticed how it works.

    Now I just need a good Picasa Web album manager app for honeycomb. The Gallery app is good for quick viewing, but not for all the other stuff, and the Picasa site isn't all that great for mobile...
