When sending a photo as an attachement to an email what is the best size to send it? ie how much should it be reduced to send easily

as large as possible but a lot depends on your and your receipients connection speed, i.e. dial up, cable

Keep them down to about 100kb to 150kb each

These should be JPG or JPEG

i agree with the size for dial up, but i reguarly send 1.5 mb pictures to my dad who is also on broadband, they are downloaded fairly quickly and he adds them to his archive, with original quality.

If the picture is intended principally to be viewed on the PC, then reduce the width to about 500 pixels reduces. This reduces the size of the file before compressing it into a Jpeg format, which will take it doen further.
The 500 pixel width enables it to be viewed easily by most recipients in the window of their e-mail prog.
