Windows XP Tips, Illustrations and registry edits
When you select an image file and click "E-mail this file" in the Common Tasks pane, the image resize dialog may not appear.
This happens if the image file is not a natively supported type by Windows XP. The supported file types are the following:
BMP DIB EMF GIF JFIF JPG JPE JPEG PNG TIF TIFF WMF
If the file type is a natively supported image file type, and still the dialog does not appear, follow these steps:
Click Start, Run and type regsvr32 shimgvw.dll
Restart Windows for the changes to take effect
The problem happens if the Perceived Type value in the registry is incorrect or missing. The Perceived Type value for the above mentioned files are set to image once the DLL is registered. See MSDN Library for more information about Perceived Types.
