    Stay tuned to The Gadgeteer because the HP Magic Giveaway contest isn’t the only one that we’ll be holding before this year ends. The HP contest is the biggest contest, but we have some more fun up our sleeve :o)

    Hi Julie

    I have a question for you; I just sent my entry and was wondering if you know enough about Microsoft office email (outlook) because my resolution before I sent it (I inserted the picture into the body of my email) was well over the 1024×768 and so I sent it…I went back to my sent items later and saw that the resolution was smaller…I didn’t do any cropping nor did I photo-shop the picture, but it changed…is there a reason this happens? Is it just my email? I just don’t want to risk being disqualified over a photo that was absolutely in the qualifying range before being sent.

    Thanks, any feedback would be awesome!!!!

    I’ve not used Outlook in a long long time, so I’m not sure why it would have resized your image. If you still have the image, can you resend it by attaching it to the email instead of pasting it in? Or maybe change the file extension from .jpg to .zip or something and attaching it.

    Thanks for your help Julie…I’m trying to correct it now.

    My husband says that I might have the settings defaulted to resize images to fit in emails?!…don’t know.

    I don’t think I’ve seen your entry yet…

  • Darrin December 8, 2008, 9:54 am


    do you have any suggestions? it shows as “sent” and i also sent it to a colleague to make sure it worked, he go it.

    i am going to attempt to send it again. please excuse the duplicate submission if you already got it.
