A box will pop up showing the compression of the files. When it's done, it will create a compressed folder named whatever.zip.  The name of the zipped folder will be the same name as the original folder.  (Ex:  Original Folder - weddingpics;  Zipped Folder -  weddingpics.zip)

You can now attach your entire zipped file to your email and it will send all of the pictures in that file.

Tip:  Some email services limit the size of the file you can send or receive through their servers. Yahoo and Hotmail have a size limit of 10mb on emails and 1gb on total space available for the account.  If your file size is too large, you'll have to split the pictures between two zip folders and email separately.  Depending on the amount of space available in the receiving account, the pictures may have to be moved from the receivers email before the second email can be received.

To Create A Folder With Specific Pictures: If you have more pictures in your folder than you want to send, here is how to select specific pictures. First of all, you need to create a new folder. Open your pictures folder.  Right click in the open area (make sure your cursor is not on an icon) and select New Folder, then name your file.

Go back to the folder that contains the pictures you want to send.  Go to the far corner of the window with your mouse (be sure your cursor is not over a picture). Hold down your left mouse button and draw a box around the pictures you want to zip. Tip:  How to deselect single pictures in the highlighted area. After the pics are highlighted, hold down the control key and click on the picture you don't want and it will unselect just that picture. You can unselect the ones you don't want to send. It works the same to add pictures to the selection. With pictures highlighted, go to the top of the screen and click on Edit then Copy.
