    Quick question here guys.

    When I take a photo, and email it, is anyone else getting the types of results as me:

    Take photo.
    Open camera roll, and "email"
    Says photo is 3.4MB (ok, bit big for a 5MP right?)
    Send through gmail, arrives on iphone mail. Mail says image is 2.4MB, hmmm
    Then, logging on to a pc, going to gmail, photo says 1.7MB.
    I download it, and it also says 1.7MB.

    So,
    Send photo: 3.4MB
    Receive Photo on iPhone mail: 2.4MB
    Receive Photo on PC Gmail: 1.7MB
    Download via Gmail: 1.7MB

    What gives?

    Maybe the phone says its larger to account for the time it takes to pen it or something(I have no clue).

    I would guess gmail automatically resizes it. Try with a yahoo or something?

    Sending via a yahoo email, the sending size is 1.7MB right away. It also arives as 1.7MB. I do not know the original file size at this point, and 3.4MB/pic sounds somewhat big.

    If I send a file over gmail, photo or not, it shouldn't resize it should it?

    Idk I use yahoo haha.
    Try testing with some non iphone images. I would suggest syncing them over and then looking at their size. then send and see what happens.
