    I had to include this tip I was getting so frustrated on my dial-up at waiting twenty-plus minutes for 3 jpegs to attach here is some help
    there is an XP tool from the official microsoft website (get it before it dies) it is called a "powertoy" utility
    "image resizer" it is a tiny download and if anybody has trouble finding it perhaps private message me and I'll send the link
    it will resize jpegs and is bliss for dial-up people.
    you right-click and choose resize (it integrates into XP)
    one example it reduced a 704kb jpeg to 71kb
    I found this tip from an aussie net magazine and it was probably worth every cent of buying the mag for this software tip

    Microsoft PowerToys for Windows XP

    PowerToys add fun and functionality to the Windows experience. What are they? PowerToys are additional programs that developers work on after a product has been released.

    Note: We take great care to ensure that PowerToys work as they should, but they are not part of Windows and are not supported by Microsoft. For this reason, Microsoft Technical Support is unable to answer questions about PowerToys. PowerToys are for Windows XP only and will not work with Windows Vista.

    If you installed PowerToys prior to April 23, 2002, you must uninstall your old PowerToys before installing the versions available here.

    PowerToys only work with U.S. English regional settings.

    Current PowerToy options:
    Color Control Panel Applet

    Professional-level photographers and designers know that getting consistent, accurate color from file to screen to print and beyond is a requirement for great results. This new tool helps you manage Windows color settings in one place. Download or learn more.


    With new sources of files coming from every direction (such as digital cameras, e-mail, cell phones, portable media players, camcorders, PDAs, and laptops), SyncToy can help you copy, move, and synchronize different directories. Download or learn more.
    RAW Image Thumbnailer and Viewer

    Are you a serious photographer? Now you can organize and work with digital RAW files in Windows Explorer (much as you can with JPEG images). This tool provides thumbnails, previews, printing, and metadata display for RAW images. Download or learn more.
    ClearType Tuner

    This PowerToy lets you use ClearType technology to make it easier to read text on your screen, and installs in the Control Panel for easy access.
    HTML Slide Show Wizard

    This wizard helps you create an HTML slide show of your digital pictures, ready to place on your Web site.
    Open Command Window Here

    This PowerToy adds an "Open Command Window Here" context menu option on file system folders, giving you a quick way to open a command window (cmd.exe) pointing at the selected folder.
    Alt-Tab Replacement

    With this PowerToy, in addition to seeing the icon of the application window you are switching to, you will also see a preview of the page. This helps particularly when multiple sessions of an application are open.

    Tweak UI

    This PowerToy gives you access to system settings that are not exposed in the Windows XP default user interface, including mouse settings, Explorer settings, taskbar settings, and more.

    Version 2.10 requires Windows XP Service Pack 1 or Windows Server 2003.
    Power Calculator

    With this PowerToy you can graph and evaluate functions as well as perform many different types of conversions.
    Image Resizer

    This PowerToy enables you to resize one or many image files with a right-click.
    CD Slide Show Generator

    With this PowerToy you can view images burned to a CD as a slide show. The Generator works downlevel on Windows 9x machines as well.
    Virtual Desktop Manager

    Manage up to four desktops from the Windows taskbar with this PowerToy.
    Taskbar Magnifier

    Use this PowerToy to magnify part of the screen from the taskbar.
    Webcam Timershot

    This PowerToy lets you take pictures at specified time intervals from a Webcam connected to your computer and save them to a location that you designate.
