    Im very surprised with all the changes to photos and imessage that theres one crucial feature missing.

    When sending a photo via imessage, it still sends as full resolution with no options to send a "slimmer version".
    You have that option when sending as an email attachement. Large, medium, small.

    I send alot of photos via imessage and it takes a ton of data. It would be really nice to have an option to reduce the size.

    Any comments?

    What's missing?

    iMessage will send full res photo only when you're on wifi or 4G. If you're on slow network like 3G it will send compressed photo (which still looks really good).

    This is the classic case of "It just works". No options needed. I love this! You don't have to even thinking about it.

    Oh wow haven't even noticed that until you mentioned it. The 3G quality one it's noticeable at all to me.
