        The URL given by Jacobe More on Sept 6 2018, is a FAKE AOL TECH SITE.. It is not owned by AOL, but runs off a purchased URL hosted by GODADDY.COM.

        Please bring back the old way to resize pictures you put into email with a right click menu stating
        "reduce by .....%," or increase by ......%. New way is a big time waster with many steps.

        Aol Mail used to have a button that automatically resized photos inside email to make them easier, lighter, to send.

        The new version makes it nearly impossible to send photos in email

        Version 98.2 was a snap to use and let you RE SIZE photos in email QUICKLY and gave two choices, size for print or EMAIL.

        Version 98.2 was FABULOUS. Incorporate ALL 98.2 mechanisms into gold to keep AOL mail the best email service.

        The way to send a SS or a photo in an e mail was so much easier and user friendly in 9.8.
        Now it is cumbersome and not easy.
        Why does AOL insist on changing things that weren't broken.

        The drop down menu allows me to add Text from a file, a natural match would be add Image also.

        It is counter intuitive to have add text in one place and add image in a different place.
        Keep the current image add, but add the same function under the add text in the dropdown

        To do find, use quick find on top of screen...It works the same

      • Bob Krampetz commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Absolutely! .. I've reported this as an issue to Beta months ago. I find that I have to click names in my address book - then REMOVE THEM in and repaste them order to move them to the CC or BCC -- This is insane.
        Images not only can't be resized as in the old Desktop, they DO GET resized when I make the window wider or narrower..

        I agree. I like to be able to resize the old and easy way too. It's just too hard to edit. I have to fix almost all of my addresses before sending and email.
