    Default sending pics by email

    Hi Guys and Gals

    It has been a while since i last posted but have been reading the posts anyway.
    My query is:- My son sends me quite a lot of email containing picture attachments
    and needless to say it takes a while to download as well as using airtime. I told him to
    minimise them before sending and i would enlarge them on my end..............WRONG!!!
    I did receive them but when i enlarged them they were very blurred and i cannot find a
    way to do it enlarge them back to normal size and be clear.
    Any help and/or advice would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks to everyone

    Best regards Cremora

    Hi Cremora, I'm afraid that there is no way to revert those pictures to their original specs. Basically what has happened is, by reducing them, that is, if the original picture is 472 KB (483,328 bytes) and is reduced to half that .. 230 KB, it is actually removing 242 KB. There is no way you can put those 242 KB back.

    An easier way would be for your son to upload the pictures to a site like Photobucket for free image hosting for photos and video sharing. After uploading his pictures he can send you the URL address and it will take you right to his albums, you then have the option to just look at his pictures or download them to your computer without losing any quality.
    Hope this helps.

    Hi Canuck

    Thanks for your quick reply, it does help me a lot (hope it helps others too) it was what i was
    afraid of, fortunately he still had the original pics on his camera so that saved the day.
    I will look into the Photobucket solution and go from there.

    Thanks once again and as always a successful response and solution.

    Best regards Cremora

    If you are using gmail, picasa is best. It's a Google product and it gives you much more privacy than any other.

    Hi and thanks to techsally & abseh1

    I will certainly look at both options along with canucks suggestion.

    It surprising how much airtime is chewed up sending or even receiving pics.

    I am using gmail so i will look at Picasso and also cnet options

    Have a great day all and regards

    Go for it, you will definitely love it. But don't forget to change the privacy settings, make your images private and share with your loved ones.
