    HELLO..... I would like to send as many photos as is reasonable [as attachments on an email] to family in Australia so realise size is of the essence so using Photo Editor I am endeavouring to make them as small as possible without losing clarity. Somehow! whilst fiddling with the pics -as the screen shots show- some are bigger than others, the one which measures 3264 x 2448 is 168 KB whilst the other being 392 x 559 is just 17.6 KB. Please enlighten me so I can make them all comparable to the last so I can attach as many as possible on a single email. Many thanks Dave.

    Perspective will have a lot to do with a group of photos when you use a "batch process" to reduce the size of a group of photos. You ought to look at IrfanView - Official Homepage if you don't already have a copy. If you change the perspective your pictures will be distorted.

    Edited a short time later to add an example:

    3264 x 2448 pixels is HUGE - it won't fit on your monitor. You should resize such large pictures to a more reasonable size, for example 640 pixels wide.

    Microsoft has a free utility Image Resizer that adds a resize option to the right-click menu for pictures.
    Download from Microsoft PowerToys for Windows XP
    .
    Or FastStone Photo Resizer, a free stand-alone program.

    There is also VSO with works with Vista and Windows 7.

    Go to http://www.vso-software.fr/products/image_resizer/
    Then scroll down near the bottom, and there is a FREE download button.

    Now running HP Pavilion a6528p, with Win7 64 Bit OS.

    Many thanks gentlemen.... lots to get my teeth into in those posts. I assume DaveA that your comment about VSO being compatible with Vista & Windows 7 does not rule out it still being suitable for MO 2003 which is what I am running! Thanks you each, I cannot emphasise too much how I appreciate this forum. Regards Dave.

    Dave,

    Windows Vista and Windows 7 are versions of the operating system, just like Windows XP (which is what you have).

    Microsoft Office 2003 is a series of applications (Word, Excel, ...); it is not an operating system.

    So the relevant question for you is not whether VSO Image Resizer is compatible with Microsoft Office 2003 but whether it runs on Windows XP, which it does. The web page says "Optimized for Windows 2000 / XP / Vista".

    I posted about VSO, because The Microsoft Powertoys do NOT run on Vista or Windows 7.

    Now running HP Pavilion a6528p, with Win7 64 Bit OS.

    DaveA,

    The "Dave" I replied to was Silver Fox, not you (DaveA).
    Silver Fox has Windows XP.

    Must respond straight away to say thanks, SUCCESS was achieved at the first attempt as I downloaded the VSO app. & at the first attempt found it dead easy to use in that I doctored / reduced no less than 10 photos with a few clicks of the mouse which surprised & pleased me very much. I sent the reduced photos as attachments to myself [and it only took a couple of minutes to transmit] BUT noticed that besides them arriving on the email as attachments, they also appeared in the body of the email too. I have noticed this in emails received from friends so they (like myself it seems) need to know how to restrict the photos appearing ONLY as attachments as I see no reason why they need to appear in duplicate. Please enlighten me further. A big thanks to all concerned. Dave.

    If we're talking about Thunderbird, there is a menu item for viewing attachments "inline" which means they are not only attached but appear in the body of the email.

    Al,
    I have NOT tried Infanview in Windows 7, as I do not really use it.
    But if I get a chance, I will try it on my Beta machine.

    I hardly ever use it either except for the batch image capabilities AND to make a quick web page from a bunch of photos.

    It's installed on my Vista but I never got "a round toit" on the Win 7 RC.

    Dave - I'm not sure what program you use for email, but in Outlook, which I use, a photo appears in the body of the email if I use the Insert -> Picture... feature, whereas it appears as an attachment if I use Insert -> File...

    Hi Ian.... I don't know what went wrong here but for some reason I failed to respond to your post with a thank you; something I think is the least one should do to show appreciation. Another way - I discovered just by chance to attach a file or photo - is simply with the email minimised to the task bar and the desired attachment/s visible on the desktop, to drag it / them over the minimised email tab on the task bar which, when paused over, pops on to the screen. Without ever letting go of the left mouse button the item can then be dragged and dropped into the text area of the email, it then appears in the attachment field.

    Cheers Dave.
