    MMS not Slideshow

    When I send or recieve MMS, it automatically changes it to a "slideshow" even when there's only 1 photo. Is there a way to change this so that it just shows as a JPG??

    Don't think you can change this in the stock app, try using Handcent from the Marketplace... that's what I'm using with no problem seeing jpeg's not a slideshow.

    Can't find Handsent in marketplace

    Tried a search & it keeps showing me SMS Androapps & the ratings for that one are bad

    Got it - Had to add SMS to it. Already downloaded it & my slideshows are now regular pics. Thanks.

    I've had the same slideshow issue also. Must be tied to the new release of Froyo. Can't say it has cause any problems so far, but keeping an eye on it.

    A friend has the same version of Android as I but on a Droid, (I have Droid 2) his MMS doesn't have the slide show and shows pix inline with messages. My Build is "VZW" his build is "FRG22D"

    It may not cause a problem, but for me, it destroys the fun of Pix-ing if I only get to see the picture for 5 secods or I have to save the picture, then navigate to it to view it.

    Ok so I still wish I could turn off the slideshow, but I understand it now.

    I did some tests, it seems that a picture can be converted to a slideshow if there is text in the message area. Having a subject line does not affect it. This was the case when the image was sent from e-mail. When I txt myself from a mms phone, having text in the message area does cause the slideshow conversion.

    Additionally, if there is no text in the message area, but it was sent from e-mail or a message app set to HTML or Rich Text format, the picture will be converted to a slideshow. Probably due to unseen code in the message area.

    I found the reason of MMS slideshow and was able to recreate it multiple times.

    Using iPhone 4 I created message with photo in this order:
    1. Typed text
    2. Inserted picture (regardless from photo gallery or take it while crating a message)
    3. Press Send.

    The message comes as slide show.

    If I create message with photo in this order:
    1. Inserted picture (regardless from photo gallery or take it while crating a message)
    2. Typed text
    3. Press Send.

    The message comes as image with text below.

    I don't know if this is intentional or not. I asked my wife to remember to attach image first, then type text.

    Hope that helps.
