    Need help attaching photos and videos to texts and email

    I am using the Yahoo mail app. When I try to attach photos or videos it takes a really long time. I switched from the IPhone, which was really simple in this regard. Videos sometimes will take 20 minutes or more to attach and then they won't even be there when I try to send. Like they upload and then disappear. Here is my process: I go to the Gallery, select the video, hit the Yahoo icon and it opens a new email and a percentage box telling how much is complete. Often, it will then have 2 or 3 boxes like that with different percentages. Is it trying to attach it multiple times?

    What is the best setting/size for photos and videos so that they are easy to attach to texts and emails?

    Thank you!!

    Welcome to the forum

    Due to the very high resolution on the S4 those files may be larger than you are accustom to. Try a small image to see if it works. You may need to reduce the default file sizes, (resolution)

    Okay. And is there a way to reduce the file size once the video is taken? If not, what other sharing options do I have other than connecting the phone to a computer and transferring it that way?

    You could send them to DropBox or Google Drive. You could also use AirDroid to transfer then over your WiFi network.
