    Seem to be having a problem with photos since iOS 5 in that I can no longer reduce the file size. Used to do this by tapping on Cc field after attaching from the Photos app, but now there seems to be no option to reduce the file size. Any thoughts?
    I have an iPad 2 if that makes any difference.
    At present I end up something that it a 14MB attachment with a download icon and .NEF

    Many thanks

    The technique you mention still works for me, iPad 2 with iOS 5. You clicked the attachment blurb on the right side of the Cc field? Maybe the pic is really tiny already or something?

    Getting more weird!

    Thought things had somehow sorted themselves this morning... but no!
    An image capture (home and sleep button) was allowing me to resize it. So I got all excited, and tried a previous image capture from earlier in the day, to no avail.
    Then thought that the image capture were from different apps (Safari - no good, Maps - good), so went back and tried another image capture from Maps, and went to email - no options re file size. Tried again, this time with street view, as per the one that worked, and it works.

    Very strange.

    I really appreciate the reply, as this is really getting inconvenient. I had been using the iPad as my main machine, but now I have to send photos through my wife's Macbook.
