Changing pixals on iPhoto pics

by bob7415 / March 9, 2012 10:37 PM PST

I am trying to enlarge and/or make smaller a number of pics carried in my iPhoto folder. I am unable to locate the area where I can change the number of pixals when I transmit the pic in mail. Is there a specific area I can do this? I am using a MacBook Pro with LION.

Thanks, Bob

iPhoto does that for you when you send a photo

from within iPhoto.

You get a number of choices, basically small, medium or large.

No need to go messing with your pictures
