Resizing a picture when emailing it from the camera?

How do you resize a picture (so it is smaller) when you are emailing it from the camera app?  iOS lets you pick the size - but I don't see the way right off with OS10.

Re: Resizing a picture when emailing it from the camera?

At this point, there is no resizing in the picture application.. It has everything elese, but resize..  I think someone missed this option. The workaround is to use 3rd party picture editors that are for free in the time being and maybe they incorporate this in future releases.

Agree, some simple basic features that we are used to using all the time were missed in the first release.

Subject: INC000026211628 - HH - Z10 - FE: Resize camera images

 

Hi Dean,

Thank you for contacting BlackBerry Support.  My name is Miguel and will be assisting you with your camera suggestion which can be referenced with INC000026211628.  As you said, there is no option to edit the pictures taken by the device camera by size.  I’ll be taking your ticket and create a Feature Enhancement request so that this information is shared with the development team to consider.  I’ll also include in the FE to perhaps having a setting in camera to lower the resolution/size as well so the need to edit can be skipped as well.  Once submitted, I’ll be assigned a task number that I’ll pass your way and the task can be tracked thereafter by calling/email support with the task number and just asking for a status on the task.  I’ll keep you posted once I’ve completed the request and when it has been given the task number.

Re: Resizing a picture when emailing it from the camera?

Hi, this omission in the functionality is a deal breaker for me, having come from iPhone and Android. Totally unexpected.

I need to know if this is being resolved or my Z10 is being returned (I have 14 days under 'buyers remorse' with my carrier.

Thanks

Re: Resizing a picture when emailing it from the camera?

Hi, I don't mean cropping it to edit. I mean go reduce the existing image from say 1mb to say 250kb before emailing. All other smartphones (os) have this option when attaching an image to an email. In fact, present several sizing options.
This is critical in areas when data roaming etc. Bandwidth is not free.
Thanks

As I'm sure you noted while signing up for an account on this forum, this is a user to user support forum and Blackberry very rarely jumps in and says anything here. I'm sure you have also note that they never give dates for any feature releases. :smileyhappy:

 

That said, if you are here from Andriod and Apple then you are very familiar with loading apps, and I am sure that you can find one that solves your issues.
