...if your camera software does not have adequate photo re-sizing capability...you will most likely have access to something like M/S Paint. You can import the original photo file and by using the IMAGE drop down menu, resize the photo file using STRETCH/SKEW. Use the same percentage to shrink both height and width. Save the revised photo file under a new file name. Then go back and import the new file into your message.

If you're trying to import a photo file from a fon...be prepared to shrink the heck out of it. I'm typically shrinking photo files from a camera in the 50-60% range for both height and width. Carl B.

I downloaded Photo Scaler to my smart phone. It works great since I take my photos on the phone and post straight from there.
