I email lots of photos/ scanned documents but the files are large if sent in jpeg format 2mb, winzipped 2mb.
What format or programme can I use to compress the files?
I use MGI photosuite, also have HP image editor which can save files in various formats i.e. giff & tiff.
Would Paintshop pro enable me to make the files smaller i.e. kilobytes as opposed to mb?

I normally e-mail photos in jpeg but try to limit the resolution to 72 dots per inch, which is fine if the photos are to be viewed on a monitor.
some isp's won't allow large e-mails so the only thing to do if you need to send a large file is to use win zip.

click here and download the free photoresizer. It is excellent and will auto resize your photos to about 30Kb with little quality loss. App of the year IMHO.

The format is JPG, for compression, a 130kb file in jpg will expand when you look at the pic to several Mb
