Just like most people, I have a large supply of photos on my computer. These are in good quality (about 3mb). To send one in an email, I have to find it, copy it to a temporary location, resize it, and then send it.
Could someone please write a hotkey program which ideally links into Picasa2 and copies the selected image to a temporary position (say desktop) and resizes it to a standard size. And most importantly, doesn't hurt the original.

Maybe use a screen capture of the image with the desktop coordinates in the right spot, then automatically save it.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks

Also, there's Image Resizer, a powertoy by ms which adds an entry to the context menu of images, and is aimed at doing exactly what you are asking for Wink
You can find it at http://www.microsoft.com/...owertoys/xppowertoys.mspx

Thanks for your help,
Actually I have now found that I was just too blind to see the button in Picasa which does what I want. It can automatically resize pictures when it exports them to temp folder.
Easy when you know how, the problem is that I never have the time to fully learn all the habits of my programs, it wasn't in the right-click menu so I finished looking.
My mistake, huh

Thanks anyway.
