You mean MB, it is 8 MB.

I think that you should do it with a calculator. Do 8192/? (where the question mark is the number of photos you wanna send) and the results is the size each photo can be resized to with any batch resizer.
Yes I mean MB. Do most batch resizers let you set the output file size?
Workflowy. You won't know what you're missing until you try it.

Most do not, I meant to say with any that has this feature. And you mentioned you're using IrfanView, which can do it if it has the plugins installed:

Got it - thanks!

(I'm only using irfanview cuz I have it, if there was something out there that could do this in fewer steps I wouldn't mind)

Gmail client is nice! For someone like me, Gmail web interface addict..., this can help with some of the shortcomings vs. a normal client.

Have enough of them...but for me it seems that the Gmail tabs in Chrome takes even more resources.

Correct. It's based on Electron.
You can also use Franz or Rambox, both of which have support for many other services as well.

I used to use a program called MagicDisc to backup my CDs and DVDs in case of scratching. It doesn't seem to work in Windows 10. Any other recommendations? I was able to make an .iso file using ImgBurn, but can't figure out how to play it (it's a video).

ISO is an image, you can't paly from it, you need to extract the data.

I don't have an CDs/DVDs today, I just copy the files to my hard drive

I used to be able to Mount ISO files to a virtual drive and then play them like a regular video DVD. I tried playing the files in AUDIO_TS and VIDEO_TS, but they didn't work.
