Thanks Mark and Monte for the info.
Had already stopped using the width/height specs and for photos from the library we had been getting EXIF info and still do in many cases (I think - more testing needed!), but as we can't do anything about what the OS gives us, I'll just slightly change the message for the user to inform them.
Thanks again, cheers
