    Becky,

    MS Outlook stationery is just an html page that's stored on your local disk
    drive. You can include either jpg or gif files for the images. I'd use jpg
    for photographs.

    You won't need high resolution but don't worry about that right now. Scan
    it in using whatever you're comfortable with and adjust the image in
    Elements. When you have it the way you want, save it using "save for web".
    On the right hand side of the save for web dialog there will be a box that
    says "new size" and contains a width and height box. Make sure the
    "constrain proportions" box has a check mark in it then set the width or
    height to whatever you want. There are no specific requirements but don't
    make it too big. I'd start at 250 pixels and try that. You can preview
    using the "preview in" button at the bottom and adjust the size until you're
    happy with it. Then press OK and save it.

    You'll need to put the name of the image in an html file and save both it
    and the jpg in the stationary folder on your disk drive. That should be
    c:\program files\common files\microsoft shared\stationery.

    Take a look at the existing files for examples of how you do it.

    There are "how to" pages for making outlook stationery. Do a search with
    google to find them. I don't use stationery myself so I'm not a good source
    for more detailed questions.

    Good luck,
    Bob
