iPhone 6 running iOS 8.1.3. How do I email photos with full resolution. I go to Photos, select some photos, pick Mail, then compose the email. No where in "New Message" does it give me an option to pick the resolution. Once I press send the email is sent with the photos at 1280x960.

Follow-up - For some reason the photo was less than 500KB thus the email app didn't offer an option to resize it.

IOS 8.x does not prompt for resolution options when using the front facing camera, only the rear facing camera. The front facing camera will usually max out resolution with a file size in KB.


Once you hit 'Send' you should then get an option sheet to decide what size…

Try rebooting the phone.

If no joy, then try
Sync; backup; restore.
