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?

      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


    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.
