urgent help needed on how to send photo's

  Tracywt2 20:53 19 May 2006

I need to send some digital photo's that are about 890kb no larger than 250kb when compressed. How do I do this? This is urgent because we are entering the photos in a competition. I'm not very pc literate, so a 'dummy's guide' will be gratefully rec'd. Many thanks

Try a right click on your image/images - choose 'Send To - from the resulting menu click on 'Mail Recipient'.

An outlook Express message opens with the pics attached all you need to do is choose recipient and send.

Open your email program then click on "Attach" a box will open allowing you to navigate to your photo.
Select the photo and click OK

Both of the above advice is what you do
however if you then get into the habit of sending images to all and sundry - some folk[those still on dial up for example] cant/wont handle images- I have a pal who steadfastly refuses to go BB and if He sees a biggy coming in -kills it.
So explore the use of image hosting sites
here are two - click here and click here
look the sites over and see what can be achieved by send your self an image or two.

XP normally allows you (from a right click on a .jpeg file(s) to Send to e-mail recipient) to reduce the file size further if you require.

this is a neat program that does it automatically for you -no technology required.
It is running in the background once installed.
As you click on attachment - select image -select the images the program automatically copies the image[leaving the original intact] and puts it in the attachments place.
It comes with a demo movie to show what to do
It offers high compression -very small lots of noise
low compression not bad ;or custom to select your own size
And its FREE!

....upload your photos to Yahoo photos. If you have a Yahoo account it's free and you can make the photos accessible by everyone with an internet connection.

You don't need to download any programs are any other boll*cks like that.
