Photo File Sending Suggestions:
Ideally I would like to work with photos ".jpg"
format. Generally the .jpg format is what you will get from your digital
camera, the .gif format is not good for pictures. If you have digital pictures from your own camera, they will tend
to be quite large and take a long time to upload with your email. If you
have the capability to "reduce" the size of these files please do so, if not I
will deal with them once they are here. The file size which I try to use
on the website ranges from 40k to 80k, bigger than that and the response time
becomes very slow.
If you are scanning old pictures, then saving them in the format of
your choosing, please use .jpg. Again, size of file will
vary with the size of photo you scanned, and the dot density you chose to scan
it at (please scan at no less than 300 dpi). If you have no scanner, you
can get digital copies made at any office supply store (Office Max, Staples,
etc.). If you can email these files to me I will deal with the size and
condition before I publish them.
The general way to email them is to open your email software, create a message
email@example.com, put a description of the photo in the body
of the email, then click on Attach, and browse to the photo, select it and click
Open or OK to attach it to the message. You can attach more than one photo
to a message, but remember if you do so then sending the email will take a long
If you need more specific info, please email me with your questions, include
the type of photo, the source (scanned or original), the type of email software
you use, and any other information which will help to define your situation.
I will try to give specific direction to get the photo emailed in.
