Gmail and pictures
I am using the gmail web client and I just sent some pictures but they were 7mb, is there any way to reduce them while attaching them? I used to be able to do that with Outlook but I need to keep personal and work emails seperate...ay ideas?

You could put them in a zip file and upload that.

Zipping does not reduce a jpg file very much. Not sure about other formats.

I usually just open my pics in photoshop and resize them to something smaller and save them as a medium quality jpg.

I used picasa but it sent them full size, maybe there is a way to reduce them there?

Ah, that won't save them to that size, it will just reduce them to that size for emailing right?

You can resize the pictures by exporting them.
