There are three factors that affect the size of a photo file.

The resolution of the picture (dpi or dots per inch)
The size of the picture ( 3 X 4 inches or whatever)
The compression used to create the file

If you have a  3 X 3 inch picture that is 300 dpi, it will be the same 
file size as a 6 X 6 inch picture at 150 dpi or a 12 X 12 inch picture 
at 75 dpi.

A 3 X 3 inch picture at 300 dpi is a 2.32 MB file

A 3 X 3 inch picture at 150 dpi is a 593 KB file (about 1/4 th the size)

A 3 X 3 inch picture at 75 dpi is a 148 KB file (about 1/16 th the size)

A computer screen always displays pictures at 75 dpi. that means if you 
send a 3 X 3 inch picture at 300 dpi to the list, it will display at 12 
X 12 on the receivers screen.

If you save the file in a jpeg format, most programs will allow you to 
select the level of compression you use.  The higher the compression 
the lower the quality of the picture when it is viewed later and vice 
versa. A lot of the programs will tell you how long it will take to 
download a picture via various connection speeds at the selected 
compression ratio.
