How to E-mail Pictures?
With today’s technology, you can share your photos with anyone, whether they’re digital or traditional prints. If you have digital photographs, simply append them to an e-mail and submit it. If they’re prints, you’ll need to scan them into your machine first before e-mailing them. It’s important to check your photos at the correct resolution to preserve their accuracy. The smaller the file size, the faster the uploading and downloading time would be. [source: HP] A resolution of 75 to 100 PPI is typically considered optimal.
Here’s how to use Windows XP to shrink and e-mail digital photos:
- Select the My Pictures folder from the popup list by clicking on Start.
- Open the folder containing the images you’d like to send.
- Choose the images you’d like to send via email. If you hold down the Ctrl key, you can pick several images by clicking on them all at once.
- In the File and Folder Tasks pane on the left side of the screen, click e-mail this file, or e-mail the selected things if you’re sending several photos.
- The dialogue box for sending a picture via e-mail will appear. The choice to make all of my pictures smaller will be selected by default.
- Select Show more choices. Make your selection from the dropdown menu in the Send Picturevia E-mail dialogue box. You can skip this stage if you don’t want to make the images a particular size.
- To proceed, click OK. With your images attached to the e-mail address, Windows XP can open a new message window in your default e-mail program.
