Kostya,  great improvement. Thanks.

Just one additional suggestion for the prompt window:

[  ] Save selection as default

German translation:

[  ] Auswahl als Standard speichern

Great enhancement but its only working if adding images from Aqua Mail and not working if sharing images straight from Galary

Prompt to shrink is a very nice addition. Thanks a lot. 
Now I only need original size inline images to stop using samsung stock email app.

I am confused: why would you want to have a full-size 6-8 (10, 12...) Mpixel image, if it is intended to be seen as a part of an e-mail on the screen? (That's typically the purpose of the inline images.)  ???

As far as I am aware, even for tablets, the highest resolution is only 2,560 x 1,600 pixels. Most phones do not exceed 1080p.
But even then, you don't fill that with an inline image, do you?..


Update: I stand corrected:
Just released, Xperia Z5 Premium has a 4K display. Even though the claim is that it doesn't run that way all the time:

Beats me. Comes up all the time though.

And then this causes even more pain on the receiving side -- "How do I save this image"? Or even "How do I view this in Gallery"?

With an attachment, it would just work.

in my company people use a lot. All kind of images (small images, high quality resized images, pdf converted to images, pptx converted to images, forward emails with inline images resized, etx). Sounds weird to you but what can I do?
.
Most of then just use Outlook 2010  (exchange) in a pc turned on all day and they don't care about the size of incoming emails, care about the message.

Only very few uses smartphones.

To don't fall in the 480x268 limitation when I need images I just send myself a email from my samsung stock email app (personal account) to my aquamail exchange account.

People have different needs. I know big inline images don't fit most people needs. But my jobs uses a lot. Happens.

Sorry for the bad English

I might be wrong, but my reading of why Kostya chose to have certain value to which to resize the inline images is because the usual purpose of them is to see "inline", as a part of the webpage-like formatted message.
I might agree or disagree about what that size should be, but I understand (and agree) with the rational behind it: If you are creating a "webpage-like" message, the intent for it is so it would be read on the screen. (I've never known what that size is limited to, as I very seldom use that feature, if at all. My personal choice from the user's perspective would be probably not to exceed some 500-600 pixels on each side.)

If you need to send a full-size image (e.g. for printing, looking at details, or for pixel-peeping), you'd send it as an attachment.

Playing a devil's advocate: what about when one wants to print an e-mail with the high quality inline image. For those purposes you really want to use a more robust "instrument", such as MS-Word or PDF document. Why? -- Among other reasons, the actual layout of the formatted e-mail can differ in different e-mail clients anyway.

Personally, I (and several of my colleagues) hate when one sends 6-10 Mpixel inline image. So, in a way, Kostya's app is doing a service to the society by helping to limit that thoughtless abuse and "waste of electrons"  ;D (when other forms of education don't help).
