Let XP Resize Pictures for Your Email

Tuesday, November 9th, 2004 by | Filed Under: E-Mail Help, Multimedia

Let XP Resize Pictures for Your Email

A few weeks ago we mentioned “Send to” (see 10/26/2004 newsletter). One of the Send To options listed is “Mail Recipient” which allows you to send a document or picture to someone via email (using Outlook Express).

If you choose this option for a picture you will be given the option to “Make all my pictures smaller”. This is a great feature, saving you the time of resizing it in your imaging software.

Now, let’s look at this a bit slower…

Find a picture that you want to email and right click.

Choose “Send to” and select “Mail Recipient”


A window will pop up with the option “Make my pictures smaller”


Click OK. You should see an email with the picture as an attachment.

Now, with smaller files under 50k you won’t see much change, but with large files you will. I had a 120k picture and it was reduced to 34k!

This certainly makes pictures easier to email.
