    Does iCloud photo sharing able to share photos in full resolution?

    Or do I need to create a group in iMessage then send all the photos manually?

    It shares in device resolution. Full upload. If they view on iPhone, its iPhone resolution to optimize efficiency. If they download from the stream, it might pull doen the full image...

    You can test this for yourself in like 5mins...

    But pictures get compressed when you send them in iMessage? But they should get the full resolution from photo sharing, seeing as that is one of its features really.

    What? So iMessage will determine whether to compress it or not if you have 3G or 4G (wifi and above)?

    Yes. If you're the receiver of iMessage pictures. Why don't you try it? :)

    Are you sure about that? That doesn't really make sense. I'll try, but the problem is you can't see the file size unless you open it on a Mac or PC.
