How to Send Full Resolution Photos From an iPhone

How to Send Full Resolution Photos From an iPhone. If you've ever sent photos through email on your iPhone, you may have noticed that the resolution is rather small. The iPhone takes pictures at a pretty high resolution (1600x1200 on the original iPhone and 2048x1536 on the iPhone 3GS), and they are automatically compressed to 800x600 when you tap the little icon to email the photo. This is to reduce the file size and the time it will take to email the photo, but you definitely lose out on the detail of the original image. Here I will take you through the steps to send in full resolution by either copying one image at a time or multiple images.

How to Send One Photo at a Time

Step

Turn on the iPhone.

Step

Tap the "Photos" icon.

Step

Select the album you want.

Step

Scroll up or down until you find the image you want to send.

Step

Tap the photo to view the image.

Step

Tap & hold until you see the "Copy" bubble pop up.

Step

Tap on the "Copy" bubble. It'll turn blue and disappear.

Step

Press the "Home" button and go to your mail.

Step

Create a new message and select or type in the recipient's email address.

Step

Tap and hold in the message area for a couple of seconds. When you release you should see "Select, "Select All" and "Paste."

Step

Tap "Paste" and your photo should appear in the body of your email message. Send the email as usual.

How to Send Multiple Images

Step

Open your "Photos" application.

Step

Select the Album that has the photos you want to send.

Step

Tap the "Share" button at the bottom left of the screen (it looks like a rectangle with an arrow coming out the right side).

Step

Tap on each photo you want to send. A red circle with a check-mark will show up on the ones you select.

Step

Tap the "Copy" button on the bottom of the screen.

Step

Go to your mail and create a new message. Select the recipient or enter in the email address.

Step

Tap and hold inside the body area of your new message for a few seconds. The "Paste" option (along with "Select" and "Select All") will show up when you release.

Step

Tap "Paste" and your images should show up in the body of the message.

Step

Hit the "Send" button and off they go. It will probably take a while if you're sending lots of photos. Since you're sending the uncompressed versions they will be rather large.
