If you right click the picture you want to attach to your email and choose "send to" then "mail recipient" then tick "make all my pictures smaller" this will open your email client with the picture attached and of a smaller size.

Download the Windows Power Toys Image Resizer from:

and use the right click method as noted by Legolas above to resize a picture file or files as required.

Down load shrink pic from click here
This is a TSR[terminate and stay resident program] that runs in the back ground all the time.
You can set the desired size and close it ,then when you pick a pic' from your collection to attach to a mail the program automatically copies it, shrinks, and sends it
'Just like that'
The program download also includes a short 'How to' movie
and its FREE

You could also use a host site such as
photobucket or image thrust
you then simply inclde in your mail a URL to the image stored on the site.

Thanks Jack I can adjust the file size my self It is the damned size of the picture in the email that is the problem One it should'nt be there two if it is it should fit the email not have to scroll all over the place to view it.

What is the format of the picture you want to send, jpg, bmp?

Outlook Express inserts the attached images in the body of email messages in HTML format. It does so for your convenience. If you want to override this behaviour, run regedit.exe, find the key

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Identities\{GUID}\Software\Microsoft\Outlook Express\5.0
where {GUID} is a unique alpha-numerical string corresponding to your identity.

Set the DWORD value for "Automatically Inline Images" to 0.

If the key does not exist create it.
