There are 2 ways to share your iPhone pictures via email or MMS but one is better than the other because it does not compress the images and keep them in their original size and resolution.

Method 1: The first way is to simply go to the photo application and type “share”. This will ask you if you want to share via email or MMS. Whatever you decide, it will compress the picture to 800×600, reducing the quality of the image.

Method 2: The better way to do it if you want to preserve the quality of your images is to “copy” (not “share”) the image, then manually launch the mail or MMS app, and paste the image into it. This way, your images will not be automatically resized and should be 1600×1200.

By using the second method, your MMS or email will take longer to be sent out, but at least it will be a full quality image.

If you have other simple tips like this, feel free to let me know.

    what app are you using to share the photos? can i use the original camera app on my phone? it has an option to send the photo via mms, would that work with the original resolution?

  • No, it would reduce the resolution. Simply go to your photo app on iphone, select the picture, and choose “copy”. Then open SMS and paste the image in there. I haven’t tried it but I think it would work.

  • Hmmm thanks for that I didnot know I can copy pics t0o I taught only text, great post!

  • You can copy videos too to email in full res, but there is a 10MB limit on email so most videos that are over 1 min will not allow you to paste into the email body.

    There is a Cycorder email video work-around. Search youtube.com. There is a video on installing Video Edit Toggle that will put the Cycorder videos into your CameraRoll. I suppose MMS will work this way too. Haven’t tried it.

  • What a fab site…at last I’m up and running with my iphone. What a great contribution especially for me being a non techy, in the moment type.
