    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.

    You could use Picasa and send a link in the gmail.

    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?
