Have you ever received an e-mail with a huge photograph attached that takes forever to download or maybe an email that has a photograph that won't even open? Then you know the importance of preparing photos correctly for sharing by email. You can do that in Elements from here in the Share tab. I got here by opening an image into the Full Edit mode and then clicking the green Share tab. To prepare this image to send by email, I am going to go down to the Email Attachments button and click there. This particular image is quite big and so I get this message that the image I am sending may be too large for some people to download and asking whether I want Elements to convert it to a smaller size.
I am going to click Auto Convert. If I didn't want to downsize it, I would click Send As Is. Elements goes ahead and resizes the image, so that it's an acceptable size to send by email and you can see the size right down here, this one is only 339 KB. It also opens my Email program with a brand new message, all waiting to be addressed, so I could type the recipient here, I could type the subject here and then I can move my mouse before this photo and I could actually type some text here and when I am all done, I can scroll down to the bottom, I can click to the right of the photograph and press Return, and I could type my greeting.
If this account were activated, mine doesn't happen to be at the moment. I would click the Send button and send the message off with the photo properly sized and attached to the message. So that's all there is to sizing a photo, to send by email, and automatically attaching it to an email message directly from Elements.
