Send pictures via E-mail

On a friends computer, when he tries to send a photo from My Pictures, he no longer sees the little dialogue box which allows him to 'Make my pictures smaller'. He needs this option because he has only a dial-up connection. Can someone explain how to get this back?

Sorry, I should have said he uses Windows XP, SP2 and the latest Outlook Express.

If your friend is sending the picture as an attachment it may be wise to edit the picture first. If they are sending it within the boady of the message, try right clicking the picture and select Edit Picture, from here you can re-size it.

"Powertoys Picture Resirer" for Windows XP (free download from Microsoft), should do the trick.

Many thanks to GroupFC and McD. I've passed on your solutions.To recap, I've tried right-click and edit but I don't see how to make the photo smaller?

Right click the picture select Edit Picture/Size.

When Powertoys is installed right click automatically gives the option to resize to "handheld" "small" "Medium" "large" with screen size.

If you use Picassa (free download from Google), one of the options is to send an e-mail. The picture is automatically resized to a few kb.
