Adding Photos
« on: April 10, 2014, 04:25:40 PM »
To add an attachment (photo or document etc), click on the "Attachments and other options at the bottom of the message input form, then click on the "Browse" button and select the file you want to attach. For more than 1 attachment, click on the "(more attachments)". You can add up to 4 attachments, but none of them must be larger than 250KB.

To shrink a larger file, you'll need a suitable program - sometimes one comes with email programs (try emailing the picture to yourself and see if it shrinks it), otherwise you'll need a photo handling program. Some of the programs that come with digital cameras can do it, but if not, then try using paint.net - it's a free download and works very well. The best download site is http://www.getpaint.net/index.html - any others are usually a con to get you to pay for the free program!

To use paint.net, click on "image", then "resize" and set the width to something like 320 pixels. Save the file and then browse it as above.

And the best of luck! (No actually it works very well!)
