Tone it down
With modern email programs you are able to send messages with different fonts, colours and sizes, however some programmes cannot interpret this rich text/HTML. If your friends are having problems reading the emails you have sent to them then you may need to try sending it as plain text.

Transparent GIF v1.0 -- Win9x/Me
Transparent GIF is a small tool to allow you to mark a color as being "transparent" in a GIF image. Any nominated color then becomes "transparent" and allows the background to show through. This can remove the background from an image so that it appears to float on the page. Transparent GIF will allow you to remove a transparent color if it has already been set or to change a transparent color. The interface is a little awkward -- you have to nominate the image file to be converted and then the name of the new file being created -- but there are plenty of simple directions and it really isn't hard. Probably its biggest downfall is that there isn't a preview of the image with the selected color. Some images have so many similar colors that it is hard to know  exactly which one to select as the "transparent" color. Overall, this is  a great little tool to have on hand and one well worth grabbing. Access  this 156kB download from:
