Normally in Outlook. the attachment will be what you attached. The resolution will be what it was.  Check during Attach if your photo app offers a sending size.  

In iPhone Email, it always asks What Size and default is small (lower resolution). You need to pick the larger size if you wish (and so longer send times).

No, it's not normal, When you send a picture it usually sends as an attachment and does not alter the content.

Is any change you are pasting picture as inline?

If you are doing from the Menu / Ribbon: Insert, Pictures, and then selecting a file, it should place it in the email body and send it at original resolution.  The size in the email body may be reduced for very large images, but it will still send the data of the original image.

You could try sending it as an attachment, what does that do?

Also could you have any software on your outgoing email server that reduces the size of very large images automatically?

So then you attach as a file (also noted above) and when you do that, the file size (resolution) is what you attach.

Hi Expert,

It's image and content done on ms publisher and then copy and paste to outlook.

Thanks!

Clarity here please.

Paste into Outlook message means inline.

Attach means attach the file.

I think, then, what you are getting from Publisher is either the wrong resolution or a non-compliant image.

Try a completely different image (not involving Publisher) and it should work fine.
