In Windows XP, click to select the photos you want to send from My Pictures or another location on your computer.
After you have selected the pictures, click on E-mail this file or E-mail selected items in the task pane.
You can also right-click with the mouse and select Send to Mail Recipient from the pop-up menu. In the resulting box, click the button next to Make all my pictures smaller and then on the link for Show more options to see a selection of resolutions to use for the picture attachments.
Make sure Small is checked, and click on OK.
This will create a new E-mail message with the newly shrunken image attached.
I would also like to take this time to remind everyone about Google's Gmail.
For personal E-mails, we would prefer you use an outside mail source such as Gmail or Yahoo mail. If you'd like an invitation to Gmail, or have any questions, let me know.
