I have a windows vista machine and use thunderbird for email. My question is, what software can I use to best reduce the size of photos so I can attach them to an email. It would be nice to be able to drag and drop several at once, unlike the windows version ( one at a time )

Here's a free Vista clone of the image resizer powertoy for XP. You can't drag 'n drop, but you can select multiple files and resize them all at once.

For more info' and a link to the download:

Voluntary shareware 'Irfanview' ( www.irfanview.com ) does batch resizing very well. It's often necessary to sharpen a little when resizing, to give the same visual impression as the original at web-size, and you can do that in one pass with Irfanview. It'll also rename the files to your specification, and put them in the folder (a new one if necessary), where you want them.

Thats great. I will certainly give that one a try aswell. You guys are a real god send. Thank you

Hello Allan:
Have yet another question for you. How do I convert a bmp image to jpeg with Irfin view? I figured you would have the answer for this one

Well, I'd just open it in Irfanview, which reads most graphics file formats, and then save it, with the "Save as..." options set to "jpg", or anything else you want.
