I have a problem with pictures I send can't always be open by the receiving person.
Some people haven't a problem but others do.
Why is that? I scan the pics in paintshop 6
and jbeg them. Is there a better way to do this so everyone can open them. Or is there a way I can copy the pic right on the written area so it doesn't need to be open?
????????????

.jpg or .gif are almost universal. I understand .gif's may be limited in the number of colours, but have properties that other types of files may not have (transparent backgrounds, animations).
The standard for sending photos is .jpg and anyone using win95 or any recent mac o/s should have no problem dealing with them.
Keep in mind that there are limits as to the size of files you can email, In North America many ISP's limit emails to 5meg.
If you are posting the pictures in order for them to be viewed on a computer 100 dpi is more than adequate.

Thanx.....
I forgot to mention that no-matter what size the picture, it always comes out real big on the e-mail... How do you control the out going size.

if the picture is meant to be viewed on the computer monitor you have to set up in pixel size not print size x dpi ... in corel go to resample and choose pixels from the inch/mil drop down ... then remember that an 800x600 res means that you can only see (in it's entirity) a pic. 800 pixels wide

when e-mailing make sure you are sending it as a binary and not an asci (text ... you'll send the code for the pic but not the image)
or
your isp may be putting it into a mime (multiple image yadayada) file that would need to be uncompressed ... try sending 1 file per e-mail

hope this helps

If you have Corel or Adobe Illustrator
for your design program, a really neat trick is to do a full screen preview, press (alt)
Print Screen (on a pc only)(I don't know if this works on a mac.)
then go to photopaint and get a new page,
make it paper size, and hit shift insert, voila, your picture is there. already converted to 72dpi and
screen size. Then you can save it as jpg or gif(you will have to convert to 8bit color to save as a gif)
and resample it to a smaller size if you need to.attach to your e-mail, and if you have pictures where they open inline it will be there right in the e-mail,
after you send it go to sent mail and check out your results.
Bill

PS this works in signlab too,(or probably any other graphics design program) except signlab does not have full screen preview option, so you will have to crop the picture as it will show the whole window.
