Images in text messages

2020-04-18, 17:31 PM

Hello,

 

Can anyone tell me if an image that is attached to a text message is automatically resized before it is sent? Or is that something I'd need to do first - resize and then attach the resized image? If so, can anyone recommend a good, free photo resizing app?

 

Thanks!

I don't use the Stock SMS app as it's too limited. I use QKSMS from the Google Playstore,

 

https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.moez.QKSMS&hl=en_GB

 

 

It will auto-resize MMS to 300k and also allows the splitting of text that contain emojos that can take the character limit over the 160 Characters in a text and prevent them sending as the might get converted to MMS messages. It also has more customization options.

 

MMS picture messaging is becoming a bit,"Old-Hat" these days with apps like WhatsApp and Viber and there are other ways of sharing photos that may will not incur Carrier phone charges on PAYG deals.

 

 

HTH :)

Thanks! I will look into it - though I wasn't really looking for  different messaging app - just a photo reducing app so that I can then use the resized images. Old school, I know - LOL!

 

Thanks again!

 

ETA: But can an app like QKSMS be used over WiFi? Just curious if there are messaging apps that will work via WiFi when a cell phone signal is weak or non-existent.
