A:Hello and thank you for question.

Different Internet Service Provider (ISP's) has their own way of allocating how much space a customer can have on their email account and unfortunately, there's not a single thing you can do but take what they give you However, you can always call your ISP and ask them if they can increase your allocated space

If you have a picture editor (Photo Deluxe, Picture it, etc..), you can make a copy and save it as a ".jpeg" or ".gif" which would reduce the file size

The other thing you can do is save it on a floppy if it can fit in a floppy and send on the snail mail if it's that important If you have multiple recepients, you can send it to the one that has more space on their e-mail and have them forward to everyone whom you want to see the picture Good luck!
