    The simplest way for you to learn about this is to use the Help menu in iPhoto (and other apps too for that matter).

    When you pull up the iPhoto Help page there is a category on the first page called "Sharing Photos Electronically" on the left which has some clear explanations of resizing for email and some various considerations to keep in mind regarding your choices.

    Also, Select a photo/s ( iPhoto ).

    Click the email icon or select email from the Share menu

    Choose the size from the drop down menu

    Click Compose

    In email,

    Once exported/saved/dragged out of iPhoto:

    1) Click open / Open up in Preview
    2) Go to Tools
    3) Find Adjust Size...
    4) All the simple tools for resizing is available on our Macs, no need for downloads!!!!

    In addition to the methods described above, there's also File/Export in iPhoto, which includes numerous options for resizing the image. Even images which haven't been resized in iPhoto can be made smaller for e-mailing in Apple Mail. Look at the bottom right corner of the e-mail for the options. But of course if you're only looking for e-mailing the image from iPhoto, you are presented with options for sizing the image when you click on the Email icon. If this could be made any easier, I'd like to know how...

    Then there's Preview,
    For individual photos, Preview is easier than iPhoto (Tools > Adjust Size).

    Ya can always try these methods as well... How To Resize Images Using iPhoto [Mac]

    Hope that helps ya out.
