I have suggested to my daughter in America that she should use a program to cut down the file size when she sends me Photos.I use Ulead Smart Saver a freebie,is there any way I could email the program to her? Or can you point me to where she,might find a program as good as that,for free. I have searched but would prefer to have a definate recomendation from an impartial user... Many thanks Geoff47
If she is sending .Jpg files they are already highly compressed. But to zip a file or group of files select the files you wish to send, right click go to 'Send To' in the right hand pane & send to Compressed (Zipped) Folder. You will then have your pics compressed into one file that you or your Daughter can rename without altering the contents.
click here enables you to transfer even large files (Zipped ideally) at no cost.
As mentioned click here is free and the images can be resized to transmit quicker. Resize images to 800x600 in the image menu. Use the save as function in the File menu[give it a new name] direct it to a new folder[ E-Mail pix] thus saving the integrity of the origingal image. and send them away
There is a program called IMAGE RESIZER in Powertoys and it does the job a treat.Once downloaded and installed you just right click on a picture and choose from 4 sizes.click here downloads/powertoys/xppowertoys
