I use a Sony digital camera and the program is called,Picture Package. The
pictures are too big when recipients open them up but they look normal size
when I view them. How can I make the pictures smaller when I send them out as
an attachment?thank you.

Get the free Irfanview that Almost recommends and reduce the size of the
pictures where the largest dimension is about 700 pixels or so (experiment
on a *copy* of the picture to get the size you like). Also, when you save a
picture, use the .jpg or .gif format as others such as .bmp can take up huge
amounts of space.

Just a couple of things to add. You might suggest to the folks that receive
your pictures that they also download Irfanview since there are probably
other folks that send files to them that do not resize them first.
Irfanview has the ability to view pictures in several sizes. My preference
is to enlarge the IrfanView window and then go to View, Display options, Fit
only big images to window. This setting allows small pictures to be viewed
in their normal size (blowing them up too big will ruin the resolution) and
will reduce large pictures to the size of your window for good viewing.

I also want to stress what Ron said - that when you resize pictures,
particularly if they are in the jpg format, that you work with a copy since
each time you modify a jpg and save it, pixels are lost so the quality is
not as good.
