    When you send them from the Photos app, you'll see ot's size next to your email address:
    image.jpg
    To send a different size, tap the number, and select the size you prefer:
    image.jpg
    When you send an image by inserting it in the Mail app, you'll find the same as soon as the image is added to the email.

    This only works for photos taken with the camera on your device. Photos imported to your iPad from your computer or found on the web do not have this option.

    Thank you. Yes when I tried Joanna's solution it did not give me the option. The photos I wanted to send are downloaded from my laptop to I pad.

    I did some more checking and discovered that pictures imported to my iPad directly from my digital camera do have the sizing option when sending by email.

    Thank you for the information!

    I don't import images to my iDevices using iTunes, so I didn't know that.

    Thank you Skifan I tried that with an image transferred from laptop to here and it worked. One more problem solved I think!
