Emc8- Resizing Pics For Email



[Just upgraded from Easy CD Creator 6 which I loved. On that version I used to be able to resize a picture for easier emailing and store it in a folder for sending at my leisure as a standard email attachment. With EMC8 I can still resize but the option to store the picture for future use has vanished- the programme simply takes my resized pics and automatically inserts them in to an email template. This is very frustrating and takes control away from the user. Anyone got a way around this?

E-mailing photos

You can share your photos and other media files with friends and family by e-mail.


Using PhotoSuite, you can e-mail photos individually, either as an attachment, or in the body of an HTML-formatted e-mail message (if your e-mail client supports the HTML-formatted message feature used by Media Manager), or you can send your photos packaged in a slideshow.


To e-mail your files:

In PhotoSuite, on the Canvas Toolbar, click E-mail.



Optional: To add additional photos, follow these steps:

Click Add Files.

The Add Files dialog box appears.


Navigate to the Smart View, album, or folder in which the photos are stored.

Select the photos to e-mail.

Tip: To select more than one photo at a time, press and hold Ctrl while you select the photo files.




Click Add Files.

Select the e-mail program you want to use to send the files by choosing one of the following options:

Default e-mail client (Microsoft Outlook): E-mail the files using your default e-mail program. If you select this option, choose whether to send the e-mail in HTML format. If you choose this option, the photos appear in the body of the message, rather than as attached files.

Other (e.g. Yahoo, webmail): Save the files on your hard drive and e-mail them later using a web mail account.


If you are e-mailing photos, you can choose the format in which they will be sent. For example, you may want to convert a photo to best fit a particular screen size, or to reduce the size if you are e-mailing a large number of photos to someone with a dial-up connection.

Choose one of the following conversion options:


Convert photos to JPEG: Sends the photos in JPEG format. You can choose the size of the converted photos:

Small (640): Converts photos so that the largest dimension (height or width) is 640 pixels. The other dimension is sized to maintain the current proportions.

Medium (800): Converts photos so that the largest dimension is 800 pixels.

Large (1024): Converts photos so that the largest dimension is 1024 pixels.

Original size: Maintains the current size of photos.

Make a slideshow: Converts the photos to WMV format.

Just send the files with no conversion: Sends the photos without changing their file format and size.

Note: Photo conversion options are available only if you have selected photo files to e-mail.


The conversion does not affect your original files.




If you are e-mailing video files, you can optimize their quality by setting the conversion options.

In the Quality box, choose the desired resolution. The higher the resolution, the better the picture quality, but the larger the resulting file.


Note: Video conversion options are available only if you have selected video files to e-mail.


The conversion does not affect your original files.




Click OK.

If you chose to use your default e-mail program in Step 3, the conversion status indicator appears. When the conversion is complete, an e-mail message appears.


If you chose to use an e-mail program other than your default, the Pick the location for your e-mail files folder appears. Browse to the location in which you want to save the converted files, and click OK. The files are converted and copied to this folder. Use the e-mail program to attach the files to a message and send them.



Complete and send the message. For detailed instructions, refer to the documentation for your e-mail client.
