change picture file size

I appreciate the better camera on the BlackBerry...however, I need to reduce the photos file size.
How do I change the file size of a picture so that when I email the photo it has a smaller file size?
If the bb10 doesn't do that, is there an app for that?

Thanks.

Carla, The picture editor in the z10 does a great job with cut, effects, sharpening etc.  but there is no re-size. There are a couple of free photo editors in the appworld that does this for you. Shame, hope they add this option in the next release.

Re: change picture file size

It appears that the app Photo Editor Ultimate, free and paid versions will do this.

Check BlackBerry World.

Sadly, resize does NOT appear to be on the recent update.

Re: change picture file size

Last night, as I watched the iPhone commercial about how everyone EASILY uses their iphone to take, send and share pictures, I just got even more angry that it is so difficult and cumbersome to downsize a photo or video to be able to text or email it to someone else who has a smart phone. IT SHOULD NOT BE THIS DIFFICULT AND CUMBERSOME.

very frustrating.

Re: change picture file size

I shouldn't need an APP at all. It is a waste of time, to take the picture .. go to the app ... resize the picture ... then go and do the text or email.

And how do you think it's done in the iPhone?

Re: change picture file size

On the Iphone, they give you an option to resize. Small, medium, large or original. Pretty simple. Blackberry should consider this.

Re: change picture file size

Old BlackBerry 's had this option.
