    I noticed that the file sizes average around 2 to 4 mb.

    I want the original size so I retain the most information for editing, especially cropping.

    While transferring an image this morning I somehow came across a screen that offered me an option to send either the small file or one that was 18mb.

    Unfortunately I couldn't find that screen again.

    How can I share the original size jpg?

    That's up to your email provider usually - the limit is 25MB. Go to your email app and look in settings, either for the app or for the individual account, for the "18MB" setting.


    (Photos aren't "from Gallery" - Gallery is just an app that displays the photos that are on your phone.)

    Thanks for the clarification of the gallery.

    I checked "My Files" for the images on my micro SD card and I see that their sizes are very small - from .98mb to 5.33mb.

    The files from my Note 4 were much bigger than that.

    I don't think the email provider has anything to do with the size of the images in the phone.
