How to make a picture file smaller
  

Hi,
I have some pictures in large size - 2-3 MB. I want to attach these pictures in my email. I cannot attach more than one at a time. Is there any way to reduce the size of the pictures in KBs? So i can attach more at one go. Anyone?

Any help will be appreciated.

Re: How to make a picture file smaller

You can try to save it in different format. OR you can simply use MS paint to resize the image. Just follow the steps below:
  • Open your picture file in ms paint
  • Click SKETCH / SKEW
  • Change the Horizontal and Vertical from 100 to 50 %
  • Click OK
  • Then click File -> Save As

Go to this link. You can resize your pictures in high quality. You can also share your pictures directly on the web. Or use Microsoft Publisher - just copy and paste the picture in MS publisher and save the picture.

Re: How to make a picture file smaller

The best picture editor I have ever used and thoroughly recommend is a small FREE program called IRFANVIEW and it has a lot of plug-ins you can download too...all for free.
You can resize in any size or increments like 1/4, 1/2 or 3/4 etc or you can specify any other way. To make two pics together..panoramic...is very simple as is all functions of this small program. In fact I have tried it against many of the very costly ones and for ease of use, number of functions and use of memory etc I have not found another one as good as this IRFANVIEW.
Remember it is FREE and really it is worth a fortune for what it can do and it's ease of use.
It is one of the most popular viewers and editors available and with the xtra FREE plug-ins it will play music, operate web cam, open virtually any type of file. In fact it will do just about anything you want to customize it for via the plug-ins.
You can download this FREE program at http://irfanview.com/

Open it with Paint and save again, it will decrease file capacity.

When you have Photoshop or the Microsoft picture manager or something similar you can even resize the pics to exact sizes.
But im sure you figured it out already!
