What size are downloaded iPhone images?

Say you download a file from Google images to your iPhone, does the iPhone compress it? Is there a maximum size? I was trying to send a downloaded picture to someone over iMessage but it just wouldn't work.

Apple compresses photos to send them via iMessage. I have no idea what the limits are.
If you have problems, take a screenshot of the photo you want to send and send the screenshot instead. Hey, it's iMessage - someone will look at it on a smallish device most likely, anyways.
If you need to send a HD super-duper original, email it. Or print it and send it by Royal Mail. :p
Or send them a link to your photo's location on Google Drive or Picasa....
