For those running Windows (XP or later), who don't have access to any 
other image resizer, I'll mention that Microsoft provides a free image 
resizer in their "Powertoys", available at:


So convenient and functional that although we have other image software 
available, we usually wind up using this to resize images for mailing, web 
pages, etc. 

It provides a right-click resize option for one to many images (whatever 
is selected), with several standard options for the final image size, plus 
custom sizes, does not overwrite the original image (unless you force it 
to do so), and does a very acceptable job of compression. The "large" 
option usually produces images in the 40-90K range, depending as usual 
more on the complexity of the image rather than its original size.

they won't clog up email boxes. This message was 11 MB, which is overdoing
it a little................
