    Hey folks...

    So...I'm trying to send off images to a friend and I don't want them to be resized...but Mail keeps shrinking them. I've been through the Preferences panel and poked through the Help files, but haven't found anything on this. I finally resorted to going online and sending the photos using my email provider...which was annoying, but it worked.
    Next time round...can anyone tell me how to fix this? I can't recall what it says in my sig...but I'm running Leopard...

    Thanks in advance!

    You need to switch the images to icon view to prevent this from happening.

    Try Mail Attachments Iconizer to do this automatically.

    How is it possible?

    How is it possible that this is so complicated? I love the new functionality of Mail3, but is it really that hard to keep photos the original size? Sheesh...

    Try this...

    1. Quit mail

    2. Open Terminal, type:

    defaults write com.apple.mail MaxImageSize 'large'

    3. Press Enter

    4. Open mail again and drag an image to a new message.



    Tadaa.

    (^-^)

    Another option is to look in the lower right hand corner of your mail message after you have dropped your photo in the message. There is a drop down box that allows you to select photo size. Choose actual size to send the original photo.

    Dude, you brought back a 2 year old thread to comment on a feature that was added AFTER the thread was created. Nice.

    That's exactly what I do. Mail gives you the flexibility of changing the size easily enough...
