Seems this is a common problem on iPhones, but I have only just hit it.
Until quite recently, if I sent a Picture via email, then the pic was sent as an attached jpg file. This has worked for me for years. Until now…
If I do this now, all looks fine - the phone asks what size do I want to send the picture as - I select one. I send the msg. But what arrives is just an embedded thumbnail of the picture.
I have searched on line & tried a number of supposed fixes - non has worked. I just updated to iOS 16 to see if that would fix it. Nada.
This change in behavior did not correspond with an update - it just stopped working.
And won’t come back.
What I have tried:
Power off and restart - multiple times
Update to iOS 16
Reset Network settings
Change Camera setting to always send as jpg
Does anyone know anything further…?
Has anyone got a fix that actually works…?
Frustrating that such a useful feature which has worked for years, has now stopped working. There is every indication that it should still work - the response of the iPhone is unchanged. It just doesnt actually do what it always did before…??
Ah now I see what you mean. You are selecting a photo in Photos and then tapping the share button bottom left of the screen. Then you get the one photo selected and options dialogue, which is top right in my iphone incidentally.
That is not the way I add photos to an email though. In outlook I attach a file and in the Apple mail app I use “insert a photo or video”.
Curious, I recently received some images from an iPhone and they were all JPGs. I know that they are stored in an Apple native format on the devices and in iCloud. I’ve just tried a test and it saved (by default) as a JPG but there were other options such as PNG.
