    When I add an attachment, the image appears huge to the receiver. How do I reduce the size of the image.

    Hi carol, you would need to reduce the image size in a graphics program, like Adobe Photoshop, Photoshop Elements or Paint Shop Pro. Adobe Photoshop is rather expensive, but Photoshop Elements and Paint Shop Pro are arouns $100. There are free image editors out there, I just don't know the names of them, try going to http://www.download.com and look under the graphics section and there should be some editors there you could either download for free or atleast get a free trial to see if you like them. Hope I have helped. :)

    the image will only appear huge if viewed in outlook express. It's actually the same size but the screen limitations within oe make it look huge. The receiver can either save the pic somewhere else to view or as the above has said you'll need to resize it for viewing within oe. you should have a photo editing program on your computer. If not here is the best free one. Irfanview.
