My OS is xp pro. I recently sent a photo with an email as a experiment. I`d never sent one before. Unfortunately it was too big, so much so that the recipient threatened to plaster it on the back of a bus. How do I send one small enough for him to enlarge to his requirements? Non technical and easy answer please, I`m new to this game
What email program are you using? Outlook Express will automatically resize the photo for email sending. I use XP home and this also warns you if the image is too large. But you can resize the image and make any changes cut/crop etc. yourself in Irfanview, its free to download go to: click here
I would guess the file went out in a windows bit map format, these are huge in both file size taking a long time to send or receive vie e:mail,this is a good way to lose friends that are on pay as you go narrow band.
And also would require a billboard if you printed them, they come out on multi page's a bit like a jig saw to put them back together.
If you have MS photo editor, this is FOC in MS office, although it may not load by default, you can open the bitmap in Paint, then save as a Jpeg
