Friend asked how to reduce pic size on his XP computer,told him to right click on a pic and there he would see resize picture in the drop down box,he says it's not there.
Is there some- thing one has to download to get that option?

I might add it is there on my XP os.

So there's no mail recipient option, under send to in my computer??

Thats the only option in my computer to resize a pic.

MS have a Image Resizer , its free Download here (http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/downloads/powertoys/xppowertoys.mspx) Look for Image Resizer, can change to several different sizes.

I also use VSO Image Resizer (http://www.vso-software.fr/products/image_resizer/) as well.--- More features - does batches of Pics as well

Simply right click on the Pic you want, select Resize and a box opens to let you select what you want -- Applies to both apps.

If you go to my pics and click on a single pic,the option to resize is there as mentioned,if I click on a folder of pics,then it is not there.
There is also the mail option available.
Seems funny I am the only one with this option?

I do have power toys for XP,which maybe what Met meant?

I will resort to Wai's ideas if he can't get what I have.

Links for Powertoys and VSO Image Resizer:

I have both. VSO has more features but I usually use Powertoys as it loads about 0.3 seconds faster :nerd: and the user interface is easier to use in a hurry.

If the resize image is not available in XP try this

Click Start, Run and type regsvr32 shimgvw.dll

Restart Windows for the changes to take effect
