    How do you select each picture manually or Zip the file so it sends in an email.

    You need to reduce the file size of each photo so you can e-mail it without exceeding your account file size limit.
    Also, don't attach and send too many photos in the same e-mail message.

    You might consider creating a Google Mail account for that purpose.
    It's what I use because it has a much larger file size limit than what my ISP's account does(only 10 MB).

    To add to Flavallee's message, you would need to make sure the receiving party can accept the size. I have had people here at work (where we have a 150MB limit) trying to send to users that have 15MB limits, so it will fail.
