I use OE and have Windows XP SP2 - does anyone know a way to mail photos
from my OE and shrink them down. I know how to mail from a single folder but
I want to be in my OE and click the attachment button and chose photos from
several different folders and make them smaller to Email all in the message.

THANKS!!
Jim

The OP said he already knows how to do that. The OP wants to add images from
multiple folders to one email.

Go to the Microsoft site and download the 'powertoys'. One of them
makes this process quite painless. You just select the picture from
Explorer and right click. It will then offer you an email option, which
will then bring up a dialog asking you what size you want. It will
resize/resample the picture to the new size, and feed it to your email
program.

Wasn't what he asked. We are supposed to read his mine, as you seem to
have???

It would require moving/copying them to a folder first, I believe.

Thanks to all who replied! I will take a look at the powertoys to see if
this may help. Maybe Microsoft will create a way in the future to do what I
am asking.
I can not say if my question was clear or not and if not - SORRY!!! In my
head it made perfect sense. For now I can create a folder on my desktop -
add the shrunken pictures in it then mail the folder. It just seems like a
pain this way and an easy thing to invent to do - a way to attach a pic to
the mail then shrink at that time - repeat for each folder I want to send
from. OR....I could be like everyone I know - ALL their pictures are under
"my pictures" and they just hunt there. Maybe I should just stop taking so
many digital pictures and boring my family and friends with them via Email?!

PS to my earlier reply. This says to select from Explorer? My pics are in
folders on my C drive - not in IE? Pardon the ignorance - I'm not that
computer literate (Hence the original post and delay in reading the replies)
so maybe you mean a different Explorer.

SORRY for the three replies. I went to MS and downloaded what Ron said and I
found how to "resize" the pictures as a copy - then I guess I could Email
them from there but then I'd have all these copies of the originals no? Then
I'd want to delete those? And still can't jus hit new mail and go from
there? I'll play with it a while.
Jim

There is software, some free, like Picasa 2 which will do what you want,
and much much more. Check it out at Google.

Try selecting the pictures you want to send, and then right-click. Go
from there.
