Hi Nigel,

OK. open 'MS Paint'. Attach a pic to the screen (Top lefthand corner drop down menu will give you all the options.

With the pic on the screen hit the resize button - this will give you two boxes to the top of the new box - set at 100. This is 100%

If you select 10 (10%) the picture will reduce significantly.


I'm assuming that ALL Paint progs are the same.


The attachment started out at 5Mb and is now 75Kb (apprx 10%)

Hi Nigel


It's a very frustrating issue.What I found is, open the picture and choose email from the picture menu. Mine then opens up in Microsoft outlook with a blank message, but with the picture attached in a reduced size. I then simply right click on the picture attachment, copy and then paste into a folder (which I have named "reduced sized pictures") . Done. Then I can copy and attach to another mail or to this site in a reduced size.


I hope that helps


Best Bill
