    Hi All,
    I have not figured out how to adjust the pic size on my Samsung S6A. It always takes pics on the max setting which takes up a lot of memory on my phone. i.e. Pics of 5MB are common

    When I send them in email from my phone there is no option to reduce the size.

    Any help with this would be appreciated.

    Welcome to Android Central! You can change the default resolution for pictures in the Camera app's settings. However, if you still want to take the pictures at the highest resolution, and then downsize them for email or texting, you probably need a 3rd party app, since not all phones include that feature. Try Photo Compress, which is ad-free. You could also try Google's own Snapseed, but I'm not sure if it has a photo compression feature.

    Yes, Snapseed will do the resizing and compression changes using the "export" command.

    That's good to know, thanks! Snapseed would really be the way to go, then, since it's a Google product, and there wouldn't be any concerns for hidden ads, or data going to suspicious servers in other countries.
