    I want to download, edit and then send photos from my iPhone, but retaining full resolution. Problem is for example, I tried sending a photo via Gmail on my Mac and then downloaded it on my iPhone using the mobile version of Gmail and the photo reduced the quality by a lot. Is this some kind of compression done by the iPhone itself or is there a way to get the photo with full resolution and then sending it to my mac with full quality?

    Thanks in advance.

    When emailing a photo the phone should give you a choice of sizes.

    I think OP is meaning emailing an image from a Mac to his phone.

    OP, what about using Dropbox? On your Mac you can just drop pics in to Dropbox and then on the phone open Dropbox and save the image to the camera roll. Once it's in the camera roll you can edit it.

    Adobe makes a Photoshop app for iPhone/iPad by the way.

    If Dropbox isn't your style, there are some others out there. Box for example and Google Drive since you mentioned you used Gmail.

    Airdrop is also great way to send files over your your mac without using 3rd party.

    Newtons has a good point too - when copy/pasting an image into an email, gmail will, by default, downsize the image to include it inline in the email --- one only has to hover over the image and choose: Original Size on the bottom to make it original size.

    Dropbox is a great way to quickly transfer files from one location to another. I know many people who use it as a transfer service (making sure to remove data on it as soon as they add it to stay under the free limit).

    Good luck with Dropbox! It's a great service - I've used it for many years.
