Please do not double post - it makes it fiddling to repeat everything.

My guess is that they are actually big but when you view them normally your viewer reduces them to fit the page.

By whatever means they have to be downsized for email. One way is to use the E-mail button at the top of "Windows photo gallery" when you are viewing them.

There are various ways to create downsized copies with photo programs too.

Your email client might have a downsize facility but that would depend on what email you are using (not given).

Here are some other ideas about downsizing for email in bulk:

It could also be the resolution you have set on your computer is much higher than the recipient's computer.

Maybe but even so the picture would still have to be downsized for email to overcome the problem.

If the recipient's monitor is set at a much lower resolution than yours, then the space (size) it would occupy would be greater. You can either resize it with (or they can view it with) Irfanview:

It can also save the file in a different format (or size).

Sorry Derek, I don't follow you. It doesn't have to be downsized for email, the recipient just needs to use a viewer that can reduce the viewing size.

Err, well, I assumed the recipient wanted to view it in email - that's the usual complaint about oversize. We don't know what email they are using - maybe it has some inbuilt facility for viewing big ones.

If it is saved as a file the other end then agreed, it should view at the right size (unless the viewer settings are weird).

Ah yes, I didn't think about him wanting to view it in email.
