I try to send a few snaps, but some of them do not send due to being too large ( I think I can safely send up to 50kb, without any problems). Is there a (freebie) program that really reduces the size of photos?I have an app. that actually does reduce file sizes, called Shrink PC, and it does a good job, but not quite as well as I want. I use VirginMedia broadband. geedad
A quick way to reduce your photo size when sending it by email is to:
Browse to the picture folder on your computer Right mouse click on the file of the photo you want to send Select SEND TO, then MAIL RECIPIENT A window pops up asking you to select the file size Select the ‘smaller’ or ‘small’ option, and click OK or ATTACH Your email message pops up with the attachment – enter an email address, subject and message and click SEND Note that you can send more than one photo at a time — ‘Click and drag’ to select files that are beside each other on a list, or hold the CTRL key down and click on each file if looking at thumbnails or icons — then right mouse click and select SEND TO.
Which operating system are you using? XP,Vista or Windows 7? E.G. in XP, when you selct send to mail recipient, a window pops up asking if you want to resize all your photos or keep them original size. But there is a "show more options" link at the bottom left hand corner that gives you more size options when you click on it.
