Emailing Photos
Hi, in need of simple explanation on how to get photos from my camera to email. I am a novice in the terminologyCurrently using Kodac Easy Share to store photos. Problem has been the photos are too large and taking too long to send. How do I reduce them? I have sent them as attachments but is there a way I can send a series of small photos that can be visible on the email when it is opened?..

If you do this often, you should use a program that does batch resizing.

That means it can resize many images at once. There are a number of.

Programs that do that, some are even free. See, that is.

A good free one. Otherwise, for a more friendly experience search.

For batch-resizing online. - Itai.

For an even easier solution, Picasa from Google ( is even easier - just select the imigaes, click on the eMail butto and it will resize and send to your eMail program without intervention. Ham

I agree with Ham, picasa from google is good for photo-resizing and you can download it for free.. _________________________________.

TC, if you're e-mailing the photos just for viewing on a monitor by the recipient, changing the resolution of the image to 72 (standard) or 96 ppi before transmitting? Also, I assume you are sending as a JPEG file with "medium" compression? Reducing the resolution will save you a bunch (techie talk) of bytes. Example: An 8x12 image at 300 ppi will reduce to around 100 KB when changed to a resolution of 72 ppi. No need to change the dimension of the image. Hope this helps. Mike..

You can't change the pixels per inch on a picture and not change the dimensions - unless you change the resolution of the image. Ppi is a printing detail, not a screen display detail. If the original image was 8" x 12" at 300 ppi, it was 2400 pixels by 3600 pixels (which is possible with an 8 meg camera or interpolation from other cameras). It's going to display on a screen at the screen resolution (which is not necessarily 72 ppi or 96 ppi, etc.), at 1024x768, it's about 3x the available screen. The screen shows 1024 pixels horizontally and 768 pixels vertically, depending on where you scroll, that's what you see. To get a difference on the display and the file size, changing the ppi/dpi dimension isn't going to do anything for you. If however, you change the resolution to 576 pixels x 864 pixels, (8x72 and 12x72), then you will get s significantly smaller file size and an image that will easily display on a 1024x768 screen...
