When you scale a UIImage using the Scale method, it appears to work, but creates a flawed CGImage when on a device.

To reproduce:

var zimg = UIImage.FromFile("Images/check.png");
zimg = zimg.Scale(new SizeF(20,20));
string fname = Session.Instance.newGameImagesDirectory + "check.png";
NSError err;
Console.WriteLine("size after scaling: {0}", zimg.Size);
// Image size is now 20x20

var data = zimg.AsPNG();

data.Save(fname, NSDataWritingOptions.Atomic, out err);
var sendingImage = UIImage.FromFile(fname);
Console.WriteLine("size after loading from bytes: {0}", sendingImage.Size);
//Image size is incorrectly loaded as 40x40 while debugging on the device, but correctly 20x20 on the simulator
//The byte lengths also differ between the simulator and the device.

// I was able to get a proper image saving on the device and loading the appropriate dimensions using the following alternative scale method:
public static UIImage zScale (this UIImage source, SizeF newSize)
			UIGraphics.BeginImageContext (newSize);
			var context = UIGraphics.GetCurrentContext ();
			context.TranslateCTM (0, newSize.Height);
			context.ScaleCTM (1f, -1f);
			context.DrawImage (new RectangleF (0, 0, newSize.Width, newSize.Height), source.CGImage);
			var scaledImage = UIGraphics.GetImageFromCurrentImageContext();
			return scaledImage;         

// I believe the Scale method has a bug in it, at least on devices.

Is it possible your simulator is non-retina and your devices are retina ?

If so can you try with a retina simulator and/or non-retina device ?

A similar issue was fixed recently (bug #11069) and will be part of the upcoming 6.2.6 release. 

The latest 6.3.5 (beta) release should already have the fix (if you want to confirm it's the same issue).

Any chance you can still reproduce? 6.2.6 has been out for a while. Marking this bug as RESOLVED, NO RESPONSE for now. Please feel free to re-open if you still have an issue.
