Large JPG pictures attached to email

I have received an email with pictures in JPG format that are to large to view as a complete picture. I have to move the scroll bars to view. How can I reduce them to screen size please

Try a freebie -Picasa click here

This will allow you do do all sorts without having to install a heavyweight picture editing program.

If the jpegs are in the body of the mail right click on them and then 'Save as' in a location where you can find them. If they are attachments the same applies, i.e. right click on the attachment.

I often receive pics as you describe, too big for the screen, all I do is click on the box icon top right corner between the - and the X to show full pic. I like having them too large to begin with, allows 'close-up' inspection of detail.

That tells you what to do in the event of getting them - that's the cure.

Now what about prevention- educate the sender to get them to the correct size in the first place.

Down load from click here 'ShrinkPic'
This is a TSR-when installed the sender does not have to worry their little head any more.
The program does it for them with out being prompted.
