Can’t zoom photos on Apple TV – Apple Community.
You can swipe through your albums to quickly find the photo you’re looking for or zoom in on your photos to view every detail on the big screen. Use Zoom to magnify the image on Apple TV. Use the Touch surface on the remote to control Zoom and to pan around the zoomed image. Yes you can do all that, just not using the photo/iphoto app. I suspect it drops out of mirroring mode to let you see photos full screen.
– my apple tv is zoomed in and will not zoo… – Apple Community
I have a GorillaPod flexible tripod and a Glif iPhone camera mount that I use for photography, and they work perfectly well for setting up my iPhone on a small table in front of the TV. Small tripods or stands for iPhones and iPads are readily available at almost any price. With a laptop, a small table or a few books can put it in position, since you can angle the lid with the camera to your best advantage.
Attach the webcam to the top of the TV set or at least right near it, making sure you have a long enough run of USB cable to reach your computer. When done, use the menu in the preference pane or the system menubar to set AirPlay Display to Off. When finished with a session, show the Control Center again and tap Stop Mirroring. It makes sense to rotate an iPhone or iPad into the landscape position to match the wide orientation of a TV set. The mirroring will follow that rotation. Press the Siri button twice.
Zoom in or out With Zoom turned on, press the clickpad center second-generation Siri Remote or touch surface first-generation Siri Remote three times. Any item you highlight is automatically magnified. Move the zoom focus Tap the top, bottom, left, or right edge of the clickpad second-generation Siri Remote or touch surface first-generation Siri Remote to move in that direction by one screen item.
Adjust the magnification Tap the clickpad second-generation Siri Remote or touch surface first-generation Siri Remote and drag up or down with two fingers.
I suspect it drops out of mirroring mode to let you see photos full screen. You couldn’t have it both ways. But why? There is no point.. I tap on screen once and have “menu”, I tap once again and have it “full-screen”. I swipe to another picture or pinch to zoom.
Why Apple TV can’t mirror this and “drops out of mirroring mode” – and how could I prevent it? No you can’t, a photo will display either with black bars at the top and bottom or the sides cut off, your iPad is Is there a way how to mirror photos with all interactivity, eg.
I find it curious that you can mirror almost everything, but photos just “switch” to some kind of restricted full-screen only mode.. But they bother other people who don’t want to see their photos with black bars on all sides as tiny photos on a big screen.
As I said it’s one or the other you can’t have both. If you want to zoom in on photos, put them on the web with iPhoto journal or whichever tool you want to use and view them via Safari.
Well, it’s not quite true, because picture on screen is not “tiny” at least height is the same, just black bars on sides – but at the same time, Apple TV “switch” to “full-screen” influence the picture nonetheless, because photos are not , so instead of black bars it just crops top and bottom..
But of course, I’d have nothing against this behavior if I had the choice like you mentioned As I said it’s one or the other you can’t have both. For instance a switch between “mirroring” or “forced full screen”. But as far as I know, it’s not possible to have it one way or the other, just the other.. Rudegar: Yep, I’ve sent them the feedback and contacted the support as well. I just wanted to make sure if it is really a “proper behavior” or just a problem with my device.
Sadly, it seem to be “feature”. Firstly the iPad would place black bars top and bottom to make the photo fit on it’s screen, it would then mirror that to the TV black bars included and because the iPad screen is , black bars would then be placed at each side.
