How to reduce image size for email attachment? Normally, if you use a picture straight from your camera, the images are really big. If you plan to upload or attach it to your email, you will have a hard time so you definitely need to reduce the image size of the pictures first. Here’s a detailed step by step instruction on how to reduce the picture size. Enjoy.
First you need to check the size of the picture or pictures you want to upload. As you can see in the first screenshot, the size of our sample-picture is 2.2mb. That is really big and could take you a lot of time to upload especially if you’re using Wi-Fi, wireless internet or on a slow connection.
Go to this website and scroll down below the page to look for this form. Click BROWSE and look for the specific image you want to reduce the file size.
After that, proceed to “I do not care about the size. Just make the image:” and select 75% or 50% depending on how small you want the image to be.
Now hit “okay”. It will load and depending on the size of the image and your internet connection speed, this could take 1 minute to 2 minutes. Just be patient and wait for it to load.
After the image has been resized, you will be taken to a image has been successfully resized page.
Look for the line “you can click here to download your image!” and RIGHT CLICK on the HERE word to save your image. Depending on what browser you are using, select the option “Save Link As” or “Save Image As”.
Once clicked, a pop up browser will open and you need to make sure that the file type is “All Files”.
Then change the Name of the file to whatever name you want and ADD the .jpg after the filename. It should read “name-of-picture.jpg”
After that, it will save the picture and you can see that the image size has been greatly reduced. Congratulations!
You can now upload or attach the image to your email faster. Thanks and I hope you enjoyed this simple tutorial.
