Is there a better solution than TinyPic to email pictures? Not by a long shot. I know, many different picture options are out there for email, but TinyPic has some distinct advantages. For one thing it's free. You don't have to pay for storage space on your computer, which can really cut down on the cost of internet faxing services. TinyPic also allows you to upload your pictures straight from your hard drive, eliminating the need for an upload software like eFax.
To send an image as an email, first download and save the image on your computer. Next right click on the image and choose properties. Set the image width and height to their current size without stretching them (use the toolbar to stretch if necessary). Check the" Include Original Files" option and click the "Open in Windows Explorer" button. Finally, save the resulting file to your computer in a format that is readable by TinyPic clients.
When you email an image in TinyPic, you'll notice that the resulting files are almost identical to the size of the TinyPic file they're sent as. That's because the size without stretching is the same. TinyPic uses a compression algorithm called LZ compression to reduce the size without losing any quality, meaning that you'll get the same image quality when you email the image as you would when uploading it to an online fax service. In addition, saving the resulting images in a.TinyPic format makes them instantly available to everyone who receives them without having to change the email address or passwords on your computer.
