    I'm a new android user and already 100% loving the phone and the ecosystem.

    1 small thing with my stock Nexus 4... neither the Email client nor Gmail app (nor various other email apps I've tried) is able to automatically decrease the size of a photo before emailing.

    I'm ex-BlackBerry... this was something the BB could always do. Take a photo, email it, and you get a choice of 3 resolutions (file sizes) for email.

    I realize there are apps that decrease the quality and save a separate smaller copy of the image, but that's not the same.

    Anyone found a solution?

    Thanks!

    GoSMS will do that, I saw a setting for it when I was playing around with it.

    It will default to send the picture 640x480 unless you choose otherwise.

    Sending photos by MMS always reduces photo size by default regardless of the message app used.

    Go SMS can send emails?

    OP, I know what you are referring to. I was once a BB user. I do not know of any of the email apps that will reduce the photo size prier to sending it out unfortunately.

    You could adjust or reverse your method a bit & resize your image first using one of many image editors or more quickly via say QuickPic gallery app or maybe your stock gallery app & then use the Share function to easily send the image to your email app? Should be almost as quick & easy if you don't want other adjustments.
