Just returned from Africa… want to email some photos to friends and family, and I’d like to try sending them from my laptop. My iphone asks me how large I want the files that I am sending, but I have spent too much time trying to figure out how to do that with em client email… can someone give me the missing puzzle piece? Thank you!
My PC (Windows Vista) does this but I think it may be more of a windows function than eM. If I right click on a photo, select Send To, and Mail Recipient, it asks me what size I want. This then opens a new message in eM with these photos reduced in size and attached to the message.
Thanks for the response, Mike. I really appreciate it, but it’s not working for me. I have a new computer… windows 8… ugh!!!.. that I am trying to learn also. Not a fan right now of Win 8. I wish it was that easy. Right-clicking on a photo does give me options, but sending or emailing is not one of the options. I had Windows 7 before, and I miss that! It was so easy!
Thanks again for trying to help…
Well, that stinks. Every time I think about getting rid of my old vista machine, I hear about a new problem with windows 8!
Yep! Hang on as long as you can! My Dell laptop had run it’s course… I had no choice to move on. Thanks again. The simplest things seem impossible! UGH!
Finally figured it out! You have to use the “photo gallery” window in order to email and choose the resolution. Just for anyone else asking in the future. After you choose the photo/s you want to email, click on the email icon at the top right of the page and THEN it will prompt you how large the file/s are when you email them. Whew! Thanks again, Mike! Windows 8 is a trip, and not always in a good way so far!
I do have Windows 8.1 installed, but normally go to the ‘desktop’ environment … that’s comparable to Windows 7…do you also to go the ‘desktop’ environment?
By the way, I would use an Image Program to change the resolution/dimensions/sizes of photos…not an e-mail program. For example the free FastStone Image Viewer, or the paid Serif PhotoPlus:
An even better way (in my opinion) is to use a photo sharing website, to which you can upload your photos in their native resolution, so people will see them better; for example SmugMug or to your Microsoft SkyDrive.
In this way, the people to whom you’re sending your photos, don’t need to wait a long time till an e-mail with many photos has been downloaded. Their mailbox might not even support e-mails which such big attachments…
Thank you for the feedback and advice! Yes, I do go to the desktop often, at least to feel like I know what I am doing. LOL. Great advice, I will look into those suggestions. Thank you again!
