I have a Canon Xti which takes 10 mp pictures. When sent as attachments to email they are huge. What can I do to the pictures so that when they are opened by the recipient they are normal size? When I had a 5mp camera it wasn't a problem. I have an iMac with Leopard and use Firefox.

Since I know nothing about iMac I can only explain the principle how I do it for exactly the same purpose: Copy the picture into a Document and store that in PDF format. In fact I usually put several pictures on the same page. PDF files are not very big. In Vista I do this with Word2007. Maybe there is something similar on IMac.
