Picture format

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I noticed when I send a picture via email, that I took on my iPhone, it's a BMP.
That makes it larger than it really needs to be (file size).
Is there a way to change the picture file type to JPG?

Do you mean that you take a picture with your iPhone, then send the email from your iPhone? Because I just did that and the email that I got had an attachment called "photo.jpg" and was 183 KB.

Ok, this is weird. I think that for some reason, Outlook at work is saving it as a BMP. Firefox uses JPG.

I should have mentioned too that it's a first gen iPhone with 2.1 software.

Same here. Though not the same file type.
