    Or sent via iMessage?
    Or are they still full sized files?

    Just wondering because of the way the option to send different sizes comes up when emailing an image....

    Depends on the size of the photos you're trying to send.

    This is from the iPhone User Guide (for iOS 6):
    Here's some AT&T-specific info, as an example:

    iMessage will reduce the size of pics and vids depending upon the connection speed. Wifi pics/vids are reduced the least whereas EDGE/CDMA1 are reduced the most.

    Generally speaking MMS is reduced more so than iMessage--and it can also be further processed by the recipient's carrier.

    Ah, there we go. Thanks for that.

    Sounds like they probably will be then, eh? Since full sized photo sizes are often over a MB....

    If you want to send full sized images it's better to use email and choose the "actual size" option when sending.
