When will Apple Mail Work Properly for Large Images?

Apple Mail has weird consistency problems with large attached images.

I always choose Actual Size, and yet when I send a JPG file of 50 megapixels (16MB or so), all that arrives is an infuriating 60Kb postage stamp, wasting my time and confusing the recipient.

And yet, at other times it works fine.

I don’t understand what is going on. And that’s the main point; this is 2023: convenience and simplicity should override artificial limitations and unnecessary complexity with emails*. Just make it work right! And it’s not like Apple’s Mail Drop feature actually works well enough to not confuse the hell out of recipients—I’ve just about given up using it for that reason.

* And don’t get me started on Apple’s multiple bugs and problems with AirDrop.
