Default FB Contacts

Is there a way to only sync photos with existing contacts from Facebook? For some reason, all of my Facebook contacts are now in my phone and I don't really need them all there. Is there a way to fix this?

EDIT: Figured it out. For anyone wondering, all you do is Open Contacts -> Press Menu button -> Display Options and then un-check Facebook and it will clear out your FB Contacts, but leave the ones you entered yourself.

yep, just install Facebook, launch it and it'll ask (the first time...after logging in) "sync all contacts" or "sync only existing contacts" Choose existing. Done.

I was having issues with this working the way I wanted, so I just used SyncMyPix. Does syncing it using the FB app or using and FB account sync more than just the pictures?
