    i coudn't capture my photos back,which i uploaded to sky drive since the last update of my mobile

    Hi ji_789,



    Thank you for contributing to the forum. The most important thing to remember when it comes to recovering previously uploaded photos from Skydrive on your phone is that you need to be using the same Microsoft Account. For example, if your photos were uploaded
    under exampleaccountL: @outlook.com, you need to continue using exampleaccountL: @outlook.com as the primary Microsoft Account to recover the photos.



    Regards,

    You need to always keep at least 20mb of phone memory free. ALWAYS. I have more than a 100 apps on my phone and I have more than 20mb free of phone memory....

    Hi Lach222,

    Try sending one photo at a time. I know it's a pain in the rear, but it will work.

    That would be the limits of the servers. 20mb has always been the top for attachments in email. Blame it on old school programmers. Use a service like Fliker or one of the others that you can send a link to someone for that picture. There are time bomb type services that you can send the picture link and it is only good for so long, before it gets deleted.

    thanks mate, I will give it a crack. I still don't understand, if outlook says that it can send 20mb and I'm only sending 11.5 mb why does it keep knocking me back and saying the file is to large when it isn't??

    outlook.com keeps knocking back photos under 20mb

    My understanding , unless it changed with all the recent Outlook upgrades? , was that Outlook max is 10mb , not 20mb.

    If it is over that you can use the " OneDrive Album" send instead I think , the recipient is sent a link to the Album and they can download the files themselves if desired.

    I am not sure you can upgrade Outlook? if you mean Outlook.com , then No , it is what it is...... I only was referring to the fact that M$ has been upgrading the whole Outlook/Hotmail/Office part of their online presense for about 6months now. AFAIK Hotmail always had a 10mb limit per file/email attachment but perhaps I am wrong?

    I still use WLM with IMAP and it offers the Picture Album Option , for hi res pics a single email per pic is still best , however do they really need HiRes Images straight out of the Camera?

    I have used ImageResizer for Emailing Pics for years, just right click the image and choose a size option and hit ok.
    I'd recommend opening the Advanced Menu and setting it to make Copies , not overwrite Originals 1st though.
    You can choose/make a custom HiDef size or if they only have a HD monitor make it 1920x1080....

    Image Resizer for Windows - Lets you resize images by right-clicking.

    Something with the file most likely that is causing the online webmail portal kick it back,. What if you try sending it as a Zip file instead of a Jpeg. You can use gmail for sending photos.

    It's possible your ISP has a email attachment size limit too but here are some general guide lines
    found at: Maximum email size limit for Gmail, Outlook.com, etc

    Can't seem to stop this table being squeezed ......sorry

    Maximum email size limit for Gmail, Outlook.com, Yahoo, AOL, etc

    Here is the values list of the maximum email size limit for various email providers and email client applications. These email size limits usually apply on both sending and receiving emails.
    EMAIL PROVIDER MAXIMUM EMAIL SIZE LIMIT Gmail 25Mb (per email sent or received) Outlook.com and Hotmail 10Mb (per file attachment) or 300Gb (only for files attached via SkyDrive!) Yahoo Mail 25Mb (per email) or unlimited (only for files attached via DropBox – limited by your DropBox account size) AOL 25Mb (per email sent or received) Mail.com 50Mb (per attachment) and 10Mb (per file) Zoho Mail 12Mb (per email) and 10Mb (per file) GoDaddy Workspace 30Mb (per email) and 20Mb (per file) EMAIL CLIENT MAXIMUM EMAIL SIZE LIMIT Microsoft Outlook 20Mb (per attachment) Mozilla Thunderbird unlimited Windows Live Mail 10Gb (per email) and no more than 50Mb per file attached

    outlook.com keeps knocking back photos under 20mb

    And the Maximum may also be with the recipient's ISP. Or in other words, on both ends.

    The problem here is that you cannot send binary files directly through email. They must be "encoded", typically in a format called Base64. This is done automatically by your email program. The issue here is that encoding is not a 1:1 correlation, but rather closer to a 1:1.5 correlation. That means any binary file you send in email is automatically 1.5x larger than the actual file on disk.

    You can read more about it here:

    Why are emailed attachments larger than the original file?
