I use Microsoft Paint to reduce the size of the picture for e-mail. Right click on the file. From the menu, choose open with, Paint. In paint, from the image menu, at top, choose stretch & skew. Change the numbers equally. Start with 50% in each window. You may need to reduce further, until you get the desired size file.
I usually reduce the file to something less than 100 kb for e-mailing.
Be sure to change the name of the file slightly when you save it, in order not to overwrite the orgiingal file.
Hope this helps.
I bought a new digital camera, 5 megapixals. My problem is when I send the pictures via Outlook Express (from my Dell, using Windows ME), the pictures are HUGE and are distorted. Is there a remedy? Thank you.
