SendReduced Makes it Easy to Send Reduced Sized Pics

There are a lot of reasons why a user would need to send a picture in a reduced size. In some cases it’s because of network speed concerns, and in others its because of size. There are apps in the Play Store that will reduce the size of a picture for you before sending, but most of them require several steps. Now there is an app that does it in one.

XDA Senior Member arpruss has posted an application that will re-size a picture before sending it via email in one step. It requires a little bit of set up, but it’s pretty easy to use. As arpruss explains:

The first time you run it, you’ll need to select which email app to use. There should be a checkmark to make this setting permanent, so that next time you just choose “Send Reduced” when sharing a photo it should just go straight through to your email app, and so it won’t take any more taps than just sharing a photo normally.

You can also use SendReduced to attach a reduced photo. Just choose “Get Reduced Photo” when attaching (I only tested in gmail). Then choose Gallery as your picker, and set the checkmark so next time you won’t be asked.

So if you consistently send emails with reduced sized pictures, this is definitively an application to check out. The only issue with the app is that it doesn’t flush its own cache, so users will have to delete it themselves. However, arpruss does give instructions on how to do so.

What’s Next for Samsung and Its Flagships?

If we were to say that the Galaxy S6 was a leap of faith made by Samsung, we wouldn't be too wrong. After all, the device marked a definite change in how Samsung perceived the market and its own place in it, as it stood amongst the signs of decline which started with the critical reception of the Galaxy S5. To recap, the Samsung Galaxy S5 was criticized heavily for feeling more like a toy, rather than a premium flagship...
