How to Resize and/or Send Photos
Ideal photo size is 640x480. Any larger photos will end up shrunk down anyway and will only cause you problems with uploading or emailing.
If you know for sure that your photos are already 640x480, it's easiest to just email them.
How to check photo size
There are 3 quick ways to find out what size your photo is:
How to resize photos
If you don't have a photo editing program, here's the easiest way to resize photos. It's a Microsoft program you can download for free that works with Windows XP, Vista and Windows 7.
Windows users follow these steps:
Click "Run", and follow the installation instructions.
Once it's installed on your computer, all you will have to do to resize a photo is right-click on the icon of the photo (you don't even have to open it) and
Windows XP: select "Resize Pictures", and choose "Small 640x480".
Vista & Windows 7: click "Advanced", then "Custom" and enter the size "640x480".
The program will make a copy of the photo for you that is the smaller size, and your original photo will remain unchanged. Your new photo will be in the same folder, and it's label will be the same as the original, with the added word "(small)".
Resize and Transmit option
If you are having problems and can't get the resizing program to work, you can resize and email photos all in one step. Click for online Resize & Transmit option Note to Mac users - you must transmit one at a time.
The only problem with this option is if your internet connection is very slow, and you are trying to send multiple large photos all at once, it will take a long time to transmit.
