I used to have the option to shrink my photos when sending via outlook express 6.Now when i choose an image and select the email option i dont get the box appearing offering me the choice of shrinking the image or leaving same size,
How do i get that method back into operation please,using windows xp pro.
Thanks.

I don't use OE, but as I recall, if you right click the photo files you wish to email in either XP or Vista, the context menu will give you the option to re-size the files after you have selected the "send to - mail recipient" option.

Another handy little tool is "PhotoGadget", it's free and gives plenty of options:- click here

Go start>run and type in
regsvr32 shimgvw.dll click ok, then click ok again.

I'm using XP Pro and have just discovered that I had also lost the photo resizing option. Must have been a recent Windows Update which messed it up. Thanks Daiol for the remedy.
