I need some help shrinking an image to email size.
 
I have a few pics on disk that I need to email, but they are way too big. I am trying to do this on my work pc and the only prog I have is Microsoft Imaging. I dont have WinZip or any other compression utility, and I dont have admin rights to d/l anything either. Does anyone know of some online web site that I can use to shrink or compress these files small enough to email? I googled and found a site, but they would only allow a 200 Kb file. The file I'm working w/ is 2,649 Kb.

Open the pic with your image prog. Look up in the menues for "resize" or "image size" take it down to half of what it is and "save as"

If you can convince an admin to help you out, the program IrfanView is free and very good.

After you try scaling it down in size you can just use paint to save it as a .jpg

It will lose some quality but it will definently scale down the size.

If that isn't small enough (or its already a .jpg) you could try saving it under some other types paint supports.

EDIT: I'm just assuming you have paint but forgot about it.

The problem with resizing the dimentions of the picture is that it does not remove the color depth. So even though the picture is physically smaller, the file size is the same.

Photoshop will do this for you, but it isn't free, or even cheep. :(

if the file size doesn't get smaller if you reduce the width and/or height of an image, somethings wrong.
