I use OE button "add picture" to put a picture in with my email. The digital camera and software we use is Kodak Easy Share. But the pictures are huge! I can drag it down to size using the arrows, but just wondered how everybody else is doing it, I know I've got to be doing something wrong. Any suggestions?

1) Resize them downwards.

2) Zip them up. Right-click on one and choose Compress, unless you have another unzipper like WinZip or Izarc.

3) Don't send tehm in email at all. Put them on a web server somewhere, maybe the free space your ISP gives you. Send the download link in the email.

You can also use YouSendIt to mail large files, the recipient gets a link which they must use within 7 days, though you can resend it

You can store photo albums and send invitations to view them

Or use good old Irfanview, one of the best image editors you can find, and it's free for personal use.

Irfanview

You can batch rename and resize them, do all kinds of editing and cropping, change formats, etc., etc..

Hello,

I second the recommendation for Irfanview, it is an amazingly useful free program. A few other options along the same vein that can easily export images in a reduced size are:

Picasa (from Google): This is a program for managing and organizing all of the pictures and media files on your computer, but also features a very easy to use image export option that allows for resizing.

Another option that is similar in many ways to irfanview is Xnview. It is not nearly as powerful, but can be easier to use in some ways than Irfanview and has a prettier GUI.

Cheers,
Tom

I forgot to mention that with Irfanview (and I beleive Xnview too) you can make nice standalone executable slide shows to send to your friends.
