I had a copy service store to copy a full page of a newspaper onto a CD. The file turned out to be 9.81 MB. I want to send a copy via email, but keep getting timed out. OK, so I created a compressed (zip) file on the same disk and dragged a copy over into it. Problem is that file shows 9.76 MB - what did I do wrong? or better yet how can I get this down to an emailable size?

You can use a image editor to resample an image to a physical smaller size,
Or use a compression program to split the file into smaller pieces.


IrfanView is a fast and simple image viewer and editor that supports all major graphic formats, including BMP, DIB, JPEG, GIF, animated GIF, PNG, PCX, multipage TIFF, TGA, and more. It's one of the best image viewer available. Note: IrfanView is free for personal use
