Hi Guys
Got ourselves a Acer Netbook ready for the trip to SA. Would like to know if others are using this type of computer on their travels? Can anybody give me any direction on how to use it to send emails with photos. We are opening our normal email s through Explorer and can send message OK, attaching from a file makes the photo too big and slow to send. It has Windows 7

They work just fine. You need a little program like Firestone. Free and it will work with either jpegs or RAW files. You use this to make a copy of your pictures smaller and with less megapixels. (Make a copy, don't get rid of the original picture). Save it to somewhere like your desktop where you can find it. Then use the Attach command from your emailer to add it to your email.

gooday Brian : my netbook has window 7 i use the Microsoft office picture manager ...

right click on your photo / picture to open , pic manager .... tool bar... click on picture tab .....from here I can resize picture plus other stuff .....make sure you make a copy & name , i do this... toolbar ...file as... do this so you can find the resize photo to attach to email , exploroz forum etc .

when resizing R/h side box ..look for ..predefined width & hight drop down box makes it real easy to get the right size to send ....

I'm not to smart with PC ..... but this work well for me after a few times.. easy

hope this work for you... good luck ..

cheers nick

Nick's method works well.

You can also do this:

choose the picture
right click
select "send to"
then "email recipient"
then a choice of reduced sizes is available.

select one and it automatically opens up an email message with the reduced picture attached.

I'm glad I ain't too scared to be lazy

Assuming Windows 7.

Open the picture folder, single click on the picture you want to send, click on email in the menu bar above the pictures, select the picture size from the drop down box, click attach and your new write email message should pop up. Complete email and send.
