Shrinking photos for emailing

I have been using a free program called Shrinkpic but it does seem temperamental in that it does not always work. When it does, it is very useful. Can anyone recommend any other programs that can be used to quickly resize photo attachments to emails ?

PicaView32 will do it - Google for the old Free Version then follow the instructions in this link to complete it for the full version. It is excellent - once installed, right-click on any pic in your My Pictures then choose Send to/Mail Recipient: You will then get a small pop-up window with the option to reduce size of pic.

As per "nontek" above but you can do it from within windows (I use Windows 7) using the same procedure - "right-click on any pic in your My Pictures then choose Send to/Mail Recipient: You will then get a small pop-up window with the option to reduce size of pic."

Thanks for responses. My problem is that I do not have the "Send to Mail Recipient" on my Send To list and have forgotten how to get the option added back on. NONTEK..thanks, but have not been able to download the "old" version as all the download sites are no more !

Click Start, select Default Programs
Click Set program access and computer defaults
Click Custom, and select your mail client (for example, Windows Mail)
Click OK

I use the free picasa 3 from google. Once your photos have been listed in the prog double click on it and an option at the bottom second from left is email. This automatically reduces the size of the pic.

I too like the ease of use of Picasa for this.
