get winrar, its a free download.. then you can compress them into multiple files.
you can set the size of the archive you want to make, and when you compress, it will just make as many files at that size as needed

What file format are they in?

Try to convert them to JPEG (.jpg) format and I bet they will be smaller http://talk.dvdtalk.com/ubb/wink.gif

get a Yahoo! account, which gives you free 15mb at Yahoo's Geocities. you can upload the file (must use ftp software; upload via web is limited to 5 mb). then e-mail the link.

or get an XDrive or Driveway account. Both are internet hard drives with capabilities to share. You can get 25, 50, or even up to 100 MB space for free.

Don't know whether this applies to you or not but when I want to get large files accross, I FTP them up to one of our live servers and just email the link around.

xdrive is slow ... yahoo's geocities is much faster ... and if you break up the files into two smaller files (each should be less than 5 mb), then you can upload on the web ...

good luck
