I have digital photos stored on my computer and I would like to save them onto a Cd. I have Windows ME, how do I do this and also when I try to send the pictures in e-mail they are huge, how do I make them smaller. Thanks

Howdy and welcome

You need a cd burner and the software that came with it such as Nero...just opoen the software and drag the files you wish to burn to the program window...most applications are very easy to follow...

To reduce the size of pictures you want to email you need some kind of image resizing app...
Irfanview is a good one that many here use

here's a link to it...

got to run to work... post back with any more questions there should be plenty of people around to help during the day

Here are the steps for reducing the size of a photo with IrfanView 3.95:

Open IrfanView.

Click File - Open.

In the Look In box, select the folder the photo is in.

Select the photo you want, then click Open.

Click Image - Resize/Resample

Click Set new size as percentage of original

Type 50 in Height and Width, then click OK.
(This will reduce the photo size by 50%. If that is not small enough, use a smaller number)

Click File - Save.

In the Save In box, select the folder to save it in.

Select JPG in Save as type, then click Save.
(JPG is a good format to use because it retains the photo quality and is a smaller file size than BMP, PNG, etc.)

Close IrfanView(unless you have other photos to reduce).

The photo has now been reduced in size and can be sent via E-mail. (y)

Good info by flavallee except...

Click File - Save.
I strongly recommend you use save as so the original file is left intact for future use
