Attaching Photos to an E-Mail

Attaching Photos to an E-Mail

I'm new to Comcast.  When I attach a photo to an e-mail, it arrives blown up (before and after being sent).  The recipient must click on and pull the photo to the right in order to reduce its size. Otherwise, the focus is on one tiny segment of the photo.  Weird.  With Verizon, I never, ever had this problem.  What to do?

It sounds like you need to re-size the photos to a more email friendly size.  How big are they now in terms of something like 800 x 600 pixels etc?

The photos are 3200 x 2400 pixels!  I'm not sure how to resize them so that they fit into an e-mail.

Thanks for any suggestions.

OK that's the problem then.  That's way too big to put into the body of an email.  You need to resize it using whatever image handling software you've got on your computer.  Do you have Microsoft Paint or anything like that?  If not, you could get a free account from Photobucket, Flickr, Picasa or something else and use that to do the job, or just host them on the website and send people a link to view them.  If you don't want to do that, consider just sending the photos in an attachment.  If you are using a digital camera, they usually have a setting to pick the size of the picture when it's taken.   There's different ways you can go with this.

Use an e-mail client, such as Thunderbird, Apple mail, Outlook ect. They size your pictures automatically.
