JPEG format storage is ideal for posting your photos to the Internet and for e-mailing them to friends. (It’s also useful for archiving when you've finished editing them and need to save storage space.) The compressed images still look good on-screen and contain a relatively large amount of information in the shrunken file. JPEG storage is great for maximizing space but not for maintaining image quality. If you want to get smaller files for archiving, use minimal JPEG compression (high quality/low compression). The ideal compression is lossless, which means there's no discernible drop in image quality even though the file size has decreased.

Can't get most of my attachments to appear

With the Web-based Yahoo! Mail service, you can attach to your email message a saved Web page or another document in HyperText Markup Language format.
When you attach an HTML file in this way, Yahoo! Mail won't display the HTML content of the attached file in the email message body.
To view the attachment, you must click the attachment tab above the email message.Yahoo! Mail and HTML
Yahoo! Mail is a Web-based service and it's fully compatible with the coding languages used to design and display Web content, including HTML and XML, Extensible Markup Language.
This means emails sent or received in Rich text or HTML format include clickable hyperlinks, graphics and other Web design elements.
However, Yahoo! handles emails with HTML attachments in a different way to email messages formatted with HTML.

About Yahoo! Mail Attachments
Like most email programs and online services, Yahoo! Mail offers an attachment feature for adding images, video clips, audio files and HTML document to email messages.
Some email programs display the content of the attached file in the email message body, but Yahoo! Mail doesn't provide this feature for any file attachment, whether it's an image, video clip or HTML document.

Viewing Yahoo! Mail Attachments When you attach an HTML document or another file to your Yahoo! Mail message, an "Attachments" button labeled with a "Paperclip" icon appears below the email address fields and above the email message body.
Clicking the "Attachments" button opens a pane containing a list of all files attached to the email. The email sender or recipient can open each attachment to view the files by clicking the file name.


When sending a Yahoo! Mail with an attachment, always explain the content of the attachment in the main body of the email message.
A brief explanation will encourage the recipient to click and open the attachment to view the HTML document.
Bear in mind that many email services automatically block HTML attachments because of the security risk of opening HTML files, which can contain viruses, phishing scams or open Web pages with inappropriate content.
If you want to share a favorite Web page with a friend or contact, include a hyperlink to the Web page rather than a saved copy as an HTML attachment.

Photo,s are too big for sending by e-mail

You can set the resolution on the camera for lower resolution. You may not want to do this if you are planning to print the photos on a printer especially if you want larger prints. The best solution is to download the pictures in the cameras resolution and then reduce the resolution using a graphics program such as photoshop to a web format resolution.
There are shareware programs that can also reduce the resolutiion once loaded onto your PC.

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

Saving photo files

The building blocks of your image library are the actual file formats in which you save your images. There are two major formats: compressed and uncompressed. • The advantage of uncompressed storage is that you can save a maximum amount of image-forming information for color fidelity and clarity. • Compressed file formats get rid of some information to shrink the file size (thereby increasing a disk's storage capacity). We recommend saving all your work-in-progress images (equivalent to the negatives in film cameras) as TIFF files. This way they will remain at maximum quality, so you can create other versions for printing or e-mailing, and can save them in smaller, compressed files like JPEGs. The advantage is that you'll always be able to recreate an effect or enhancement by starting with the original TIFF file without losing image integrity.
