Had photograph attachments sent by a client via e-mail (Hotmail & Blue Yonder) which were sent at the full resolution 1600 x 1200. I received these at a resolution of 213 x 160 which were of no use in the DVD production.

Does Hotmail automatically reduced the size of photographs? If not is there some setting in my account which I should change. BTW recently sent photo's my son has e-mailed from OZ were the same and we were blaming him for using a cheap camera at a low setting.

I always send mine as a 'File' without any problems - I've a feeling if you choose to send using the 'Picture' option then Hotmail reduces them automatically. Either way I think there's a 25mb limit.

Most email systems have a file size limitation.
A better solution is to sign up to ''Dropbox''
dropbox.com
multiple pc's can access the account , and all machines end up with identical files , 2GB is free.

Skype and Teamviewer both do file transfers directly between machines.

Google docs is free with a gmail account and is good for sharing lots of data such as scripts, photos and short clips.

Correct, I can confirm send them as a file that works ok otherwise hotmail reduces them.

Problem is that it is photo's being sent to me that have been reduced in size. Don't know if there is a problem with any attachments that I have sent out. I believe that Hotmail has a 10MB restriction total but this is not a problem as I send in batches

Harry, just tried sending myself a photo from Hotmail to my BT account - no problem with a file size over 4mb 3800x2500 pixels. Sent it as I usualy do, ie as a file attachment - not a photo attachment. Hope this is of some help.
If you want, I'm happy to send you the same to see what happens, just send me a pm with the email address.

Hi Robo PM sent. Photo's have been sent also via by Blue Yonder have also been reduced so it looks like the problem could be in the receiving end

Robo kindly sent a photo, as above, and I received it at 220 x 146 with a size of 5.98 KB which is is useless for enlargement. Could there be or is there a setting for altering bthe receiving end of an attachment?
