My client has photos for her website stored in iphoto.  She tried emailing them to me but whenever she does, the photo auto reduces to a very small image.  We are not sure if the problem is with a setting on her mac mail or with iphoto.  We then tried to take images from iphoto and save to jump drive.  We could not find how to do that.  What is the easiest way to get those photos into my possession so I can add to her website?

Find the location of the images, make duplicates, then load those duplicates on a jump drive or cd/dvd.

I do not have this software.  Can you please tell me the exact steps so I can share with my client.  Where is the duplicate feature found?

Basically, find the location of the photos, select them, and make copies of them, then have them send you the duplicates via email, or putting them on a flash drive.

In iPhoto, select the images you want to mail, then click on the Mail icon in the bottom tool bar.  A pop-up such as the one in the screen shot below should appear. Change the size from whatever it is set to to "actual size" and that should solve the problem

We did that.  When the photo gets placed into the email it converts from 2 mb to 175 kb.  So, it might be a setting in her email that needs to be modified.

Look at the bottom right hand corner of the outgoing message in Mail.app before you send it. If you send pictures, there should be a button there for whether to send full size.
