    I must admit to resizing the photos when I drop them into the Pages document  Without further examination, I doubt if the reduction would exceed 10%.

     

    Rather than waste any more of anyone's time, I think I should simply drop this matter, and hope that Apple will add some sort of template, either to Mail or to Pages which would allow a simpler and easier solution for everyone.

     

    Thank you all for your help.

     

    And, Merry Christmas.

    You're welcome; I had another thought:  if you want a template, why don't you try to see if there are any apps available that will do what you want. I can't be of help with that since I create my stuff from scratch.

    I am unsure as to how to determine the pixel dimentions of the photo

    Preview will tell you in the Inspector window or when you use Adjust Size as I described earlier.

     

    Incidentally JPEG and .jpg are the sme thing.

    Workflow

     

    Note physical size of cropped image in your document:

     

    click on it > Inspector > Metrics > Size > Width/Height

     

    Open photo in Preview .app > Toolbar > Select > drag over crop to match the image as you had it in Pages > Menu > Tools > Crop / Adjust Size… > set Width & Height to match shape in Pages > Resolution: 300 for print/150 for good screen viewing/72 for smallest to email > Save as > Format: JPEG / Quality: 8 or less

     

    The file size will be indicated at the foot of the dialog as you save

     

    You may want to add a little bit of sharpening as well:

     

    Menu > Tools > Adjust Color > Sharpness: drag to right till image looks harsh then drag back till it goes away

     

    Drag back the reduced image into Pages

    Hi Peter.

     

    Thanks for your detailed reply.

     

    Physical size of the photo in my Pages Document (( click on it > Inspector > Metrics > Size > Width/Height))  is 2 1/2 x 3 1/2 inches. No cropping was required.

     

    By opening the photo in Preview, I can change the  ((Toolbar > Select > drag over crop to match the images you had in Pages > Menu > Tools > Crop / Adjust Size as in Pages > Rssolution 150.))  The file size seems to be 109 KB.

     

    But here I'm stuck.  How do I ((Save as > Format: JPEG / Quality: 8 or less)) or even move the new image to desktop, etc.?

     

    Jim
