other items adorned with photos of their choice.

Recommended photo sharing sites include Shutterfly (www.shutterfly.com) and Snapfish (www.snapfish.com). Such sites also provide basic photo editing tools that you can use with the photos you uploade, including adjusting size and sharpness and creating a collage.

If you do need to send large digital photos, or any large files, there are better ways of doing this than e-mail. The most convenient are Web sites specifically set up for this. With YouSendIt (www.yousendit.com) and Rapid File Share (www.rapidfileshare.net), you can send files up to 1 gigabyte in size for free.

To send more than one file at a time, you can combine multiple files into a single file using the ZIP file compression protocol included with many programs, including PowerDesk (www.v-com.com) and WinZip (www.winzip.com).
