Reduce size of pictures when E-mailing

  Nero6 11:13 02 Aug 2007

For some unknown reason I have lost the facility to reduce the size of pictures when E-mailing.

Help please!

Download the Image Resizer from Microsoft's Power Toys web page:

click here

Does the right click on a photo file not bring up the means to adjust the file size?

Following on from the above, is there some way to switch off (and maybe back-on) the image resizing dialogue that pops up when right clicking and image and selecting send to mail recipient?

Yes, install Image Resizer.

Probably the best program is Picasa. Open picasa and all your photos are shown without any searching and at the bottom of the screen is an email icon. Select the image/s that you want to email (mouse click) then click on email, your email program opens with the image/s reduced and attached, leaving you just the small job of attaching the recipients address. click here
