What is her screen resolution? If very high then low resolution photos will apear small.

If she has Frontpage (Any version of Microsoft Office), Use Insert,picture, from File.
This will normally show as full size on the screen

Hi alders
When your mum-in-law sends the picture you have sent to her, back to you, is it the size that you sent it, or small?
