    I posted this in another thread - but figured it might be good on it's own with this subject heading so people can find it easily enough..

    When you use the share option - the photos are resized to 800x600 and removes the filename so you get photo.jpg, photo2.jpg photo3.jpg, etc

    But if you copy a photo and then paste it into an email, you will send the full sized photo with real image name intact.

    Useful for those who want to know if they're sending a full resolution image or scaled down. Also useful if you send a bunch of photos out to avoid the person on the other end overwriting your photos since the sharing function always names the photos the same thing.

    Yeah. I noticed that too. So I just copy and paste. It's just as easy.
