Reduce Photo size to send in email

My photos are very large so I can only send a small number of photos attached to an email, 2 or 3 pictures.  How do I reduce the pixel size to send more pictures attached to an email?

That’s one reason to use Google Photos! You can select the pictures – as many as you want, click the share icon, then enter the person’s email. What they receive is is a link to view your photos online – not the actual photos themselves. So the email is very small.

Here’s an article:…..oogle.html

Hope that helps
