Emailing Photos in Windows7

Dear Computer Lady,

Read your piece about sending pictures in XP, but what about Windows 7 Home Prem. Also I do not have Outlook as a e-mail client or address. I use my Bell south for e-mail. How would I send pictures using it.

I can send pictures but it takes forever for them to attache, I using DSL internet service. Suppose to be the fastest that aT&T has to offer.

Thanks, William

Dear William,

If you are using an email program on your computer, then the directions would be very similar to the way you send them using XP.

From your description, I”m guessing that you are not using an email program, but are using the web interface at Bell South. In that case, your have to use the web interface to attach and send pictures. An alternative method would be to download Windows Live Mail if you don’t already have it installed on your computer (this is the free email program that Microsoft created to replace Outlook Express) and set it up to use with your Bell South email address. Bell South should either have directions on their website, or their tech support would be able to walk you through the process.

The speed at which your computer attaches and sends pictures might not be due to the speed of your DSL internet connection, it could be that your pictures have a very large file size. Modern digital cameras are capable of taking pictures with so much detail that the files are HUGE. If you are going to print 8X10 pictures, that is a good thing, but if you are going to email or upload them to facebook, it might not be such a good idea.

I would suggest that you make a copy of the pictures you want to send and use the “resample” function in your image program. I have directions for this on my website at:

I hope this helps you when sending pictures, Elizabeth
