I take photos that are 640x480 or about 1.4MB...I send those photos, hopefully with 40 to 45 photos at a time. Is there a compression software that will allow me to accomplish this task with one (1) e-mail ? I use RoadRunner and the e-mail limitation is 20 MB per message, but 40 photos could total somewhere between 50 to 60 MB. I presently have to send them in two to three e-mails....Any suggestions ????

Typically photos are already compressed to the fullest. Perhaps you should consider a site like Dropbox where you would simply place the files in the dropbox and send your pals a link where they can upload them from. It is simple to do and is just like using a folder on your system.

This "power toy" for Windows is really simple, just right-click your pictures and resize them:

But I like using IrfanView batch processing, you can resize and compress a bunch of pictures in a few seconds, it is a bit more advanced.
