I could use some ideas. I am trying to help an elderly friend using a new digital camera. He mainly just wants to download and email the photos. The Camedia software is lousy for this as it sort of opens its own little email program. Its just adding another learning curve for him. I can show him how to attach from within his email program but that involves him now resizing.

What I'm looking for is a really basic program to grab his pics off his camera and then easily email right out of that (automatically resized).

Any suggestions?

Try Picasa (it's free). I don't use it personally, but I do have it loaded and have played with it.

When viewing a photo, you'll see an e-mail choice at the bottom right of the screen. It can use it's own built in e-mail program, or it will use MS Outlook. It will automatically resize the photos for e-mailing, too.

You'll see the options for setting it up under Tools, Options (by default, it resizes to 480 pixels wide, but you can change it). By default, it also prompts you as to which e-mail program to use (but you can take away the prompt if you always want to use Outlook, etc.).

Just looked at the web site and it looks just like what I'm looking for. I'll give it a try.

Thanks so much!
