I have 14 photos saved in a folder on my computer. I want the 14 photos to be in 1 zip file so people can download all of the photos after purchasing them. I downloaded a trial zersion of Winzip and could not figure out how to do this. Any suggestions?

Thanks

      I followed the instructions in the Help file and it didn't work. Maybe it doesn't work in the Trial version?

    With WinZip installed, right-click the file or folder that you want to compress, then click the Zip option in the right-click menu. I have not used WinZip in years, but the menu option should say something like "Add to archive" or "Add to 'file name'", just try and see.

    If you want a free alternative, download 7-zip, which is an open source tool that works in a similar way and is easy to use.

    I'd rather die poor and happy, than rich and unhappy.

    Another Way:

    Right click on an open space on your desktop.

    Click NEW

    Then Select COMPRESSED ZIP FILE

    Now just move the picture files into that directory, rename the Directory and you're done.

    Don't feel bad - I didn't know how to do it either.

    I'd extracted many a zip file, but hadn't ever created one. Too simple. Just not intuitive.
