I have to send 50mb of pics downloaded from a digital camera to people who have dial up, As you know this will take forever. Is it better converting them to Adobe Distiller(pdf) and sending them? or is there another way???

pdf files will be smaller(I think)and there are several free pdf readers about the www.

Personnally I would burn them to a CD and post them. or if you do try to e-mail them break them down into small groups

if the quality is not vital then use a program to reduce the quality and therefore the file size.

XAT Image optimizer can do this click here

For the pictures that the person likes, you can send them the full quality ones

Just tried converting the jpg's to .pdf.Even after cropping them to include just the subject matter,they were still the same size.I added compression (Winzip) and they were actually larger as a zip file than before?Therefore,I would have to agree with Sicknote/Gandalf and suggest you bung 'em on a CD and post. :-)
