Are the pictures from your digital camera too big to email?

Here are the steps to make them a smaller size suitable for emailing or uploading to a web site.

  • Open the picture in Microsoft Paint
  • Go to the Image menu and select Stretch/Skew
  • Resize the image to 30% of the original size
  • Go to the File menu and select Save As to save the smaller version as a new file
The best file format to Save As is JPG.

Your camera may be different than mine so a resize of 20% or 40% may work better for you.
