Problems with attached pics!

  1. Nov 30, 2004 #1

    I have a problem when attaching pics to my messages. I can't know about the pixel size of my attached file. How can I know it? And how can I reduce it if it is larger than the limit?


    I am not sure if this is the correct place of my post, so please forgive me if it is not :confused:

    Any image editor worthy of the categorization will tell you how big it is and allow you to crop it.

    Windows XP will give a summary of image size by pixels ( width x height) and it will allow one to resize without using an editor.

    In Win2K, one can [right click with mouse, Select Properties, and Select 'Summary' Tab] and read the width and height in pixels.

    Can't help you on Mac OSX.

    For image processing, an relatively inexpensive on is Adobe's Photoshop Elements 2.0. PE can handle very large files.
