open it in paint > click image > click stretch/skrew > top two boxes put them both as 50 then press okay. Should half the size of it. Save it, and send it.

If you have XP then use this link: http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/downloads/powertoys/xppowertoys.mspx

Look for 'Image Resizer' on the right hand column, it's fifth link from the bottom. Install this and then whenever you right click on the icon for an image you can choose from different options of resolution, you can take most images from 1-2MB down to about 100kb and they still look fine on a PC screen.

Cheers, it's a prog I've been using for years now and it's so simple to use. There were some comments on the MS forum about various Vista compatible progs as there isn't an official MSoft one yet and there were a few options including this:

If you are using XP, may work for Vista.

View your pictures in a folder.

Select the ones you want to send.

In the area to the LEFT of the folder, under "File and Folder tasks" select "E mail this file".

You wll get a small window saying "Make these pictures smaller" or "Keep original size".

Select "Make these pictures smaller"

You are then taken into your email program where you can send your email.

Here is a picture of the folder you should see, with the option "E mail this picture" on the left.

Resizing it to be smaller is good if its only going to be shown on a screen. If it's going to be printed out then the 'bigger' one will be noticeably better quality.
