    Default is it a bad idea to lower camera resolution setting so I can email photos to friends faster?

    is it a bad idea to lower camera resolution setting so I can email photos to friends faster?

    It's currently at 5312x2988 and almost all photo end up being 6mb or more in size. sending a couple dozen photos to grandma end up taking a long time because Verizon only has 3G in my area. no wifi available here because I'm in a national park.

    or is there a way to batch re-size photos on the S5 to 1920x1080 prior to emailing them? I figured 1920x1080 makes the most sense, since she views the photos on a 1080p HDTV only.

    thanks!

    On my note 3, the stock email program let's you resize it to 70%, 30% and 10%of original

    I don't see any reason why not. Scaling them down would be easier on your phone and plan all around. Less memory used on the device, and less data consumed in sending it.

    Also if you need 1920x1080, there are apps that can do it. "image shrink lite" from the play store works. The lite version works for single images, but the paid version can do multiple images

    I'm guessing I can't do it with the Gmail app? Wait... where is the stock email program on my S5? i don't see it in the apps menu.
