The arrow at the side of 'Folder tasks' will reveal it.

The resize option may only be available to certain file types, eg jpeg. Just tried with a Picture it! file, and it didn't want to know.

I have just been looking on my xp pro to see if I could help,but there is no choice on mine either.However,I highlighted a photo and checked its size in properties.It was 375kb.I then clicked on send by e mail and it reduced itself to 275kb.The pic in question as saved in jpeg.I'll keep looking to find out what is happening.

microsoft picture manager, then right click on the file, select "open with", then choose programme, then look down the list for microsoft picture manager, slect that and then open the file.

Now click on "edit pictures" then select "compress pictures" now click on the "e-mail messages" radio button then select OK

This will now compress even a .JPEG file

Have you tried right clicking photo to be sent, a popup box appears, go to send to, select mail
recipient another popup box appears asking if you want the picture made smaller.

Have just tried this myself.

I tried this as Lionheart describes and I did not get the second pop up box asking if I wanted to make it smaller.But on checking the size it had reduced by about 100kb.It all seems atomatic on mine.
