I saved the "what's blooming" file just to see what
my software said about the file. I use Outlook Express and the image was so
large that it was meaningless. According to Picture Publisher the size was 20" x
15" at 72 dpi and a file size of 630K. I am in the boondocks telephone service
wise and limited to 44k bps. It seemed to take forever to receive the file. I
receive business emails on the same computer and have to wait through the big
files to see if there is a business one in the batch. The big ones always seem
to be 1 or 2 in the batch. Since this group is just for viewing pleasure, as a
personal favor I would like to request that any email be limited to a total of
300k or less. I don't think any of us need large files. File size can easily be
controled by cropping, using 72 to 75 dpi, significant jpg compression and an
image size that fits a normal email viewer. Most systems will have some type of
image editing capability that can achieve these objectives in just a couple of
minutes. Mastering simple image editing is not all that difficult. I know that I
am not the only one out there who feels this way.
