How to Reduce The Size Of Picture Files Attached In Outlook

Many times we are ready to send an E-mail message with image attachments and we realize that the images sizes are to big to be send. What do we do?

Once we have attached the image(s) for our e-mail, we must select the File tab in order to go to backstage view. Once in backstage view we select the category Info as shown in the image below.

At the right of the Info backstage view we notice the Image Attachments area, with the description below mentioning that maybe some recipients will not be able to receive this message because of the attached image. Also it mentions that we can reduce the size of them in order for our message to be sent.

Once we have chosen to resize large images, all the images attached are reduced to a maximum resolution of 1028 x768 pixels.


Below of the Image Attachments section we have two options:

  • Resize large images when I send this message
  • Do not resize images

Once we have done the adjustment that we want, we select the Message tab in order to return to our message, and once we have finished typing our message we press that Send button.

In order to reduce the size of an image that we have inserted in the body of the message, the procedure is different and will be described in a further post.
