Can anyone please tell me how I can reduce a picture down to a max size of 50mb so I can post it on the net. I have windows xp and have opened it in the my pictures section but cannot see how to make it smaller.
If you go from where you are and click on e-mail picture in the left task pane it will then ask you if you wish to make the pic smaller. Alternatively download free software like Google picassa which will do it for you.
You could always try the MS Paint included with XP (it's under Accessories). If you open the image in Paint you can then save it in a different format (JPEG for example) which will reduce the physical size of the file or you may be even able to crop the image before saving. Another 'free' and useful image manipulation program is Irfan from click here Good luck!
