That's the stock messaging app that's in AOSP with Motorola twist into it.

It should be able to do it by itself down to the right size.  Ok let's try this

Go into

Settings

Application

All tab

Messages

From there clear it's cache(if you clear data it'll lose all your text messages)

Now try again.  If that fails go back in there and clear data(you will lose your text).

What texting so are you using? They are supposed to compress the photo to make them for automatically.

When I take a pik inside my text msg it reduces the size slightly, but it is still well over 1mb in size, and as such it takes at least 5-7 minutes for the text to go thru as sent.

The problem has to be the app. Unless you are taking raw photos it should easily compress. What device and what texting app are you using.

How do I know what texting App I have?  Are there apps that allow me to compress to small photo sizes like 100kb ish?  Motorola and Verizon customer service gave me no help on this.  Very frustrating as this is the first smart phone I've ever owned where I could not adjust the resolution size to make smaller and more manageable from a storage (on phone) and texting aspect.  Thanks in advance for any help or suggestions!

It was 988kb on a basic photo, nearly 1mb.  Is there some way to make adjustment from that, or from the actual camera function to get the file size down low?  or is that only on older phones?
