    I only have iphoto on my iMac. Photo's that I send thru msn are far too large. Is there a way of making them smaller? Thank you

    Yes actually, after you import the photos into iPhoto you want to go to File>Export and choose your compression/resizing.

    Alternatively, you can choose a number of photos and hit the little "e-mail" button on the lower right hand corner where you can compress for e-mail and send that way.

    Does that make sense?

    The email setting will also resize - even with compression (all jpg are compressed by default) a full sized file will still be pretty big. If you're going to print something, don't use the email setting, but for just sharing on a monitor or use on cellphone, etc, downsizing and compressing will save a lot of space.
