How do I email a photo from my LG Xenon phone?

Question: I have a red LG Xenon phone with a few pictures I've taken over the years (have had it for a while). Is there a way to send those photos to myself or friends using email? I don't have a data plan either, if that makes a difference.

Answer: Yes, you can send pictures from your LG phone using email, and you don't have to have a data plan to do it.

If you can open the picture on your phone and hold the phone vertically in the closed position, you'll see a "Send" option on the lower left side of the screen. Tap "Send" and then "Send To".

Next you'll tap the menu button at the top right of the screen. You'll see options for "Enter Number" and "Enter Email"... which is the menu option you want.

Use the keypad to enter the email address and then press "Send" to deliver it.

How do I convert an image from bmp to gif or other formats?

Question: Do you have any software programs that you recommend - preferably free - for converting images and photos into other file format? I have some pictures that are in bitmap format (.bmp file extension) and I'd like to convert them to gif or jpg.

Answer: For Windows users, definitely check out the Paint.NET project.

Paint.NET is completely free and is way easier to use than Gimp or PhotoShop (in my opinion), yet has plenty of features to match these well-known programs. It's the only program I use anymore for photo editing, converting images to different formats, resizing images, cropping photos, etc.

To convert your pictures to a different format, simply open them in Paint.NET and then choose the File -- Save As menu to select a different file format:

There are numerous other programs and tools for photo editing that are also worth looking at, such as those mentioned on this list from Michael Sigler's blog: Design resources for everyone (impressive list - nice work Michael).
