Sending a photo in e-mail

Windows provides a special feature for sending photos or pictures in e-mail. By providing the opportunity for you to reduce the file size of your photo at the time you send it, Windows solves the problem of a large file attachment never reaching its destination. In addition to reducing file size, this feature also changes the dimensions of the image so that it fits better on a computer screen.

You can change the settings to specify the size of the image. You can make the size of the image smaller, but you cannot make a small image larger. If your picture is bigger than the largest size indicated in the dialog box, and you do not want Windows to reduce the size of the image, choose to keep the original size. Making changes to the settings for sending a photo in e-mail does not alter the original picture. For more information, click Related Topics.

If you have many pictures to share with others, you can publish them to the Web instead of sending them in e-mail. For more information, click Related Topics.

You can order reprints of your pictures over the Web. This process allows you to send printed photographs to others. For more information, click Related Topics.
