Reducing Email Attachment Sizes With Compression Subscribe // Leave a Comment // View Channel Description: WinRAR: B/MB/GB/TB Converter Additional Info: ZIP files RAR files Data Compression Transcript: In this video, I'll be demonstrating how to use compression to overcome attachment size limits in emails. As an example, I'll be using Gmail, which has a maximum attachment size of 25 megabytes. I've prepared two scenarios where the size of the attachments exceed the limits enforced by Gmail. In the first scenario, I'm looking to send pictures through email; however, I have exactly 25.1 megabytes of pictures, which is slightly over the Gmail limit. To get around this, I'm going to combine all the pictures into a special compressed file, which will be smaller in size. File compression is included…

How to Make Binoculars With a Paper Towel Roll

You will need: Scissors Paper towel roll Tape Pencil or Pen Ruler Calculator Step 1 Using the ruler, measure the length of the paper towel roll. In my case, it turned out to be 11 inches long. Remember this number - it will help you make additional binoculars in the future, without requiring that you measure each time. Step 2 Using the calculator, divide the length of the paper towel roll by two (2). In my case, 11 divided by 2 resulted in 5.5, which is exactly half the length of the roll. Using the pen (or pencil), make a marking on the roll at this measurement. Step 3 With the scissors, carefully cut the roll in half using the marking we created in Step…
