    Default Scaling an image when sending in Gmail?

    When sending a screenshot by email the screenshot is 2.8 MB in size. Is there a way of scaling it down when sending?

    Thanks,

    Could try editing with Snapseed or something similar to scale it down before attaching.

    I don't see a scaling option in Snapseed.

    Now that I look I can't find one either. Huh, could have sworn it did. I'll try to find something that'll scale photos for you, Doug. Give me a bit.

    That one supports custom sizes and has presized ways to reduce the image footprint. If one of those predetermined sizes will work for you, that might be awesome.

    I tested it and it seems to be a very useful app and works well. The default custom shrink size quality is poor, but some of the higher ones are acceptable. It's a bit "lossy" but you can set different default shrink sizes for different sharing apps, which is cool. It would be nice if there was a quality adjustment too. But anyway, this is a great solution to have.

    Thanks!

    When you have some free time, poke around the Play Store and see if you can find a better one. I'm sure if you did and posted it others would appreciate it.
    Glad this is sufficient.

    What I'd really like is a option in the mail app (like in mail on the iPhone) where when you are clicking send you are given the option to scale down large image attachments - and told what the size of the mail you are sending will be for each choice. Maybe there is an alternative mail app that does this. I have not tried the included default mail app, other than the included Gmail app.
