Today's high megapixel digital cameras can take high resolution photos just incase you want to crop or print the photo, but emailing photos this size can take forever with a dial-up connection.

Once the large photo arrives to the addressee the problem continues when the photo is too large to fit the screen and printing is tough as well (see Tip #88).

Enter the nifty and free Pic2Mail utility. This program allows you to easily resize a copy of the photo so that it fits on the screen and email's quickly.

Here's how it works:

Download and install the program
Double click on the Pic2Mail icon on your desktop
Click the "Browse" button at the top of the window that pops up
Navigate to where your photos are that you want to resize (this will not harm or alter these original photos).
Click on the photos in the list that comes up in the top left window
Click Add for each photo that you want to resize or click Add All to resize all photos in the folder
Once you have the list completed, click on the Process button at the bottom middle of the window
Copies of your newly resized photos will be stored in a folder on your desktop called Pic2Mail Photos (unless you have told your computer otherwise).
Each photo will be resized to less than 50k. This size of photo can easily be mailed. In fact, you can probably email as many as 10 photos this size in a single email without any significant slow down for the sender or receiver.
