Resize Large Pictures for Email

Does your digital pictures grow in size from anywhere between 1MB and 4MB or even More ?
Do you have to try harder to try to email these photos or upload them due to the limitations on the size of attachments ?
or Does it takes a long time to upload 10 pictures that are 2MB a piece in size!?

If Yes is the answer then please read below for an excellent solution

1. Windows XP has a built-in feature that will take your photos and automatically re-size them to a manageable size and then attach them to an email in your default email program. Using this method you need to have Microsoft Outlook, Outlook Express or Windows Live Mail as your email program because it uses the setting from Internet Explorer’s default for email programs and that list only has these three options. If you don’t use any of those for your email, there is another way to re-size the files, but that requires downloading and installing a free application, so we’ll talk about that later.

-> first step is to go to the folder that your pictures and select the photos that you would like to send. Once selected, you will see an option on the left hand menu called “Email this file or “Email the selected files“.

-> Once you click this, you will be prompted with another dialog box that asks you whether you want to make the images smaller or if you want to keep them the same size. Go ahead and choose “Make all my pictures smaller“.

-> Click ok and Windows will re-size all the images and open a new email with your default email program with the pictures attached!

Other way out 

download the Image Re sizer application and install it onto your system. It’s a very small application, so it should only take a minute or two.

Once you have it installed, go to the folder with your files, select them, right click on one of the selected images and you’ll see a new menu option called “Resize Pictures“.

you will get a similar screen to the previous one where you can select the size from small to large. I would go with small since this is usually large enough to display nicely on a computer screen. Click OK and your file is created in the same directory as your original file, but with a “(Small)” appended to the name.

Hope these step discussed above will offer the right assistance.
