Some people not only email their friends megabyte travel photos, they also send loads of them. People using slow dial-up internet access hate this for good reason - it ties up their modems for lengthy periods. Even people with high-speed access seldom appreciate mega emails.
Choose only a few travel photos for emailing. Then, convert them into a medium or small pixel-sized photo (800x600 or 640x480 are popular sizes) - and use a resolution of no more than 72 pixels per inch (dpi).
Remember, finer specifications will not improve a photo's clarity on a standard 72-dpi computer monitor (but they will on a printer).
Moreover, a non-sized-down photo may be too large to be viewed on a monitor without scrolling.
Don't put your audience to sleep. Cull your photos and present only the very best. Make sure each tells an interesting story (one that fascinates your audience, not just yourself). And minimize the boring braggadocio shots of you standing in front of one landmark after another.
If your camera assigns numeric filenames for your photos, be careful you don't accidentally overwrite an old photo on your computer disk with a new one because they both have the same numeric filename.
