I have some (HUGE) sized photos (about 3-4mb each) that I want to make much smaller (but keeping the original hi-res large size ones) for attaching to emails etc., how can I do this, I was sure there was a window that opens on my windows XP laptop with a "custom" setting to make photos smaller at one click but I cant seem to find it now, in Vista if I click on the photo I get a window with lots of options and if I click on "edit" it brings up the window with how to crop, alter brightness contrast etc., but nothing to downsize the photo, I do have paint.net programme but cant find an option to make a small size (+/- 200kb) photo from the original, what do you suggest, and if its possible in paint.net what do I have to do?? thanks PCDIMWIT

Have found one in "accessories" in the start menu of XP and in windows "help" on Vista, also in Paint.net programme found its VERY simple with a great "percentage" size dropper that shows you how big kb wise the lower the percentage level you go off the original foto, what is good is that it saves the reduced size foto and keeps the orginal one too. Thanks PCDIMWIT
