    Is there a way to email the photos in original size using WP8's built in email client? I have tried to search for the options but they dont seem to exist. Is anybody else facing the same problem. This is something that I feel is very necessary in case you need to email photos that you have taken right away.

    P.S: doesnt matter if I am on WiFi or cellular data, it always reduces the size of the pics to a few hundred KBs

    Nope and it is a pain.
    You do have third party apps that will share pics at a higher resolution but it should be a native feature.

    This is exactly what I'm talking about with WP8. These arbitrary iOS-like restrictions are doing nothing but turning away new users.

    You gotta use Skydrive. That's the easiest way.

    There's no such stupid restriction on iOS. It gives you 4 options, one of which is to send the picture in its original size

    I mean that iOS had this restriction back in iOS1 through iOS4, and only recently added it. I don't know why Windows Phone has this restriction considering no other mobile OS has it at this point.

    if your photos backup to skydrive is setup with best quality, all your photos are sent to SkyDrive in full quality and size.
    Open the SkyDrive app and share the photos

    On my phone, the camera is set to take photos at a resolution of 6 MP. The SkyDrive app setting are set to photo upload size of original. Yet, on my PC, the size of the photos uploaded is between 200 to 300 KB. This can't be right.

    What am I doing wrong?

    if full resolution is selected, it will only upload to skydrive when you hit wifi

    so it doesn't really help you out if you are in the field somewhere and need to send someone full resolution right away.

    Really? This is absolutely absurd if true.
    So the only way I can get my full resolution pictures is by connecting the phone via USB to my PC?

    Well I can't, unless I doing something wrong. In the SkyDrive app settings I have 2 options under photo upload size: original or resized. I have chosen original, yet my photos are uploaded low resolution to SkyDrive.

    don't go to the SkyDrive app.

    Go to settings and slide over to application settings, select photos+camera.

    There you will find the option to auto upload to SkyDrive, select it and you will see the auto upload settings for photos and video, choose best quality.

    Now whenever you take new pictures the photos app will display new uploads waiting and when you connect to a WiFi network the new photos will start uploading to SkyDrive in full resolution!

    while viewing a picture, tap on the three dots and choose 'Save to Skydrive'.

    you can also auto-upload all the photos you take to your skydrive. by default it uploads the medium quality photos. the high quality ones needs wifi.

    but they only let you do this over wifi, which is flipping stupid, IMO - let ME choose

    I did as you said, but under auto upload to SkyDrive I have only 2 options: don't upload and upload.

    Click image for larger version. 

Name:	skydrivephoto.jpg 
Views:	216 
Size:	54.9 KB 
ID:	25694

    OK, I've just downloaded this photo from the MMPoweruser site, and indeed it shows the settings rajkumr is referring to. The thing is, I don't have the full settings on my phone, I just have 2 options under Photos: don't upload and upload.

    Why is this?

    If you want to upload full res images to SkyDrive when out of Wifi coverage, there's an app in the store called Camera Roll Sync that does what you want.
