Always shoot at the largest size your camera can handle. When it's time to e-mail, just right-click on the picture file and from the menu that pops up, choose e-mail recipient. Another dialogue box will open up and give you the choice to send large, medium or small images. Choose one and your e-mail opens with your picture(s) attached and your originals untouched.

I do no know how to send pictures directly from my camera to my email address.

Download or transfer the pictures to a folder in your computer - preferably your "Pictures" folder. When you write the Email, "attach" the picture to the Email by locating the Picture folder in your computer and selecting the pictures you want attached.

I want to attach digital pictures to send along with email messages but the picture files are too large. How can I rectify this issue?

What format are they stored in. I would have thought those stored in .JPG format would be ok to attach.

1) Check format of each picture, if necessary convert to .jpg or JPEG format. Most photo editing software will allow you to do this.

2) If already in .JPG format then reduce the size of photo's using photo editing software.

3) Limit the number of pictures you attach, I'd keep my emails to a max of about 5-6 Mhz. (3 pictures)

When i email photo it is too large for receiver to open

Hi I am vortash that's very unusual as most emails will take up to a gig on a download now hot mail ., yahoo .. etc so maybe its the format your trying to send that's the problem .. pictures in BMP bitmap are far larger files than say JPEG or JIF files and most mail servers require Jpeg for photo attachments .. and I do know that some cameras actually load pictures to your computer in Bitmap form .. so you need to change them .. easy enough just save them again but choose Jpeg or Jif compliant and the computer will do the rest .. hope this helps Regards Vortash

I'm trying to send pictures via email but need to compress them.

If your pics are high resolution, either you send them one by one, or reduce the resolution (or size) of the pics

Send pictures through email

download the pictures onto your computer then attach them to the email, some digital images are too big to send through to some email accounts so i suggest you either resize them before sending them or zip them.

I hope this helps

The best way to email your pictures is to send them as an "attachment" to whomever you are sending them to. You should see that option on pretty much ever email website out there.

If you are using something like Outlook, or any other email client, all you have to do is create a new email, and then click + drag the picture file over to the email and it should attach it for you that way.

If you want to send multiple pictures, you could of course send multiple files in the attachment area, or you could "Zip" up all of the pictures into one file using Winzip or WinRAR.

I hope that this has helped to solve your problem, good luck!
