What size are the photos? I have dealt with some emails that don't accept zip files, or attachments that are too big.

Have you thought about online free ftp/sharing sites? http://www.drivehq.com/ ?

You could always load them up at imageshack.us or similar and then they can right click save as...

Zip into one file then use an free FTP service like listed above. Another is Yousendit.com. Upload your file, the recipient will then get an email with a download link that stays active for 1 week. This will work to multiple recipients as well.

I sent them all in one zip file. It seems to have worked.

Thanks for the help

x2 on www.yousendit.com

if you send stuff like that (multiple files) or even BIG files (I think up to 5g), like I do, you can pay $10/month to yousendit. Don't know if you have to pay or not to get it, but they also have an app you can download and install where you just drag the files you want to send into, select recipient, and send. You can choose whether or not to .zip when you do so. Recipient will get an email with a link they can click to download...
