shrinking camera pictures on Q10 for messages

Is there an option to shrink photos when attaching to messages?  I can only send them as 1MB+.  My old phone had a large/medium/small option.

thanks.

Hey arhh22,

Welcome to the BlackBerry Support Community Forums.

 

Thanks for the question.

 

This feature is not available in BlackBerry 10.

 

Let me know if you have any more questions.

 

Cheers.

But you can crop and adjust the image first using the on device picture editor. Then send.

Re: shrinking camera pictures on Q10 for messages

They have to fix this in future updates.  I take a lot of pictures for sharing in my work - when i send a bunch of pictures to someone they need to be lowres or else their servers will reject the large emails.  The camera is great - but almost useless to me in its present form.

very disappointing.

Re: shrinking camera pictures on Q10 for messages

yes - i see you can crop it, but is there an option to lower the resolution on the whole picture? that I can't find anywhere.

Re: shrinking camera pictures on Q10 for messages

No. There are other third party apps which do this. But instantly cropping the image alone, will reduce the file size somewhat.

Check AppWorld.

Re: shrinking camera pictures on Q10 for messages

This is ridiculous - I hate it when functionaity is taken away.  And what kind of answer is "oh sorry, can't do it, there are external apps" - well tell us the external app then since you took away perfect functionality.  I dont' want to get 1 MB pics in my inbox, nor do I want to send them.
