Downsizing images to email

Can someone guide this Mac user to find a Windows app for a non-techie to use to downsize images from his digital camera so he can email them to family.

On the Mac, I know of lots of freeware apps that will do this, but not having any recent experience on Windows, I'm at a loss.

This person is far, far away, so software that is as easy as drag and drop would be best.

Thanks, Margaret

The easiest is a free download from Microsoft which will allow you to right click and resize photos for emailing:

Thanks guys, I'll pass those suggestions along.

Wonder why I didn't get these replies in my email, will have to check on that.

Take care, Margaret

I use aperture, and in its pref window you can size down the image to a smaller one by picking one yourself and send it to your family and ask how the size is and go from there.

Depends on what your are using.
Some versions of outlook will do it for you.
