Picture format

Posted:
in iPhone edited January 2014
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.

    That's odd. (I have a first generation iPhone, BTW)

    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.
