In Windows XP one can easily do this. I have about 20 pictures I wish
to send to a dialup user and no I am not manually adjusting each one of
them in photoshop, and no I wont be paying for any third party software.
Windows XP has such capabilities built in. Does Mac OSX? Its really
useful for those still on modems.

Such a capability is a built-in feature of Mail.app - at least in Tiger. When
creating a message which includes pictures there is a drop-down selector in
the lower right-hand corner of the message composition window which allows
one to reduce the size of enclosed pictures. Also at the bottom of the window
is an indication of the total size of the outgoing message.

I dont want to be forced into using mail. Is there a way to do this in
the OS like there is in Windows XP?

Another way to shrink the photos is to use the the facility built into
iPhoto. Select the photos you wish to send and then from the "Share" menu
select "Email". You will then be given an option to select the size to reduce
the photos to and then they will be sent to the email program of your choice
as attachments to a new message.

Everything you need to do this is built into Apple's own iPhoto. If you
use iPhoto for your photo management, you can send the pictures directly
to the Mail program and send them from there. The whole process takes a
few seconds. If you don't use iPhoto for managing you can still import
the pictures you want to iPhone send and then resize them via the Share
menu's "Export" command or again, simply send them to the mail program.

You are not making any sense. Just because there's a command in a
contextual menu doesn't make it functionally different from a command in
an application.

IAE, the correct way with 20 pix is to put them on a web site, with
thumbnails. That way your poor "friend with dialup" is less inconvenienced.

OS has naught to do with it.

Which version of Photoshop are you using? You can easily do this via
the browser if you're using PS CS or PS CS 2. If you have iPhoto, you
can also use that to resize and send photos.

Excellent point. PS CS can easily be used to generate a web site.

You want something to reduce the size of the picture? Sure; here's a
freebie that can do just that:
