Good deal. That's probably half the battle right there.

I think netpbm with djpeg/cjpeg is still the best software for shrinking
jpegs to a nice size while maintaining picture quality. I have a batch
file to drive these programs.

It's really for uploading a pile of photos to a web site, but you can
edit do.bat in notepad and put REM at the front of the line that starts
with ZIP. That way it will merely shrink the files; it won't pack them
all into a zip file. Put the shrunk versions in your email; picture
sizes tend to hover around 50Kb.

Make that pile of digital photos presentable:
It's quicker and easier than you think.
