Can someone recommend a good GUI program for shrinking jpeg files down to email size? I'm running both Ubuntu 10.04 and Puppy 5.2. Thank you much....

    Have you tried Gimp?

    I tend to just use gimp and save as a jpeg ... but I don't edit photos very often.

    Gimp is free, easy to use and included with almost every distro. It should serve you well when resizing images.

    A couple other alternatives (though GIMP is good)...

    If you're really in to photography or need to edit RAW photos you can't beat Bibble 5. There is a free lite version, but the full version does cost. (Though compared to Adobe Lightroom, it's a bargain.)

    There is a project called Darktable for editing RAW in linux as well.

    For basic photo editing, Digikam has some good options as well.
