Emailing it possible?

  geoff47 00:48 14 Sep 2005

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

How do I get the program into winzip?
It is on my PC...might be able to find the original disc but I doubt it.

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.

IrfanView can be used to reduce the image,its free and you can just post her the link to download it to her here

I agree with the suggestion of Irfanview; it will allow images to be opened and then "saved for web" which reduces size without any negative impact for viewing on a PC.

If she is using XP it will give her the option of reducing the size of files to e-mail them. When you select a file then "e-mail this picture/file" you are asked if you want to make it smaller.

Hi geoff47. As for getting Ulead Smart Saver from your pc to your daughter, if it's installed on your computer, then you can't send it. You have to have the original installation files.

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 here downloads/powertoys/xppowertoys
