At http://bluefive.pair.com/pixresizer.htm you can find a photo resizer that will resize your photos to any smaller size you choose and it's FREE!. 

 When e-mailing a photo, all digital photos have a default size of  2048 x 1536 and some even larger depending on the camera and settings.  That is the number of pixels and when translated to inches is nearly 14" x 11" or larger.  That translates into about 700kb of data that is beng transmitted over a dial up connection that, at most, usually downloads at 21kb to 30kb per second or less.  Do the math and one can see how long it takes for 1 photo to download.   If that photot is resized to 640 x 427 (6" x 4") it goes down to 67kb which will take only a few seconds to download.  Hope this helps!

  Please remember that we don't all have broadband. This one picture took ten or fifteen minutes to come through my phone line.

  People often post links to pictures instead of the picture itself; thus avoiding that problem.
