You can use PhotoShop (or some other photo software) to re-size your photos for the internet. If you are sending a photo that is 700kb (for example), then it can be printed out on large scale. You can downsize it to about 45kb before you send it, by selecting "small size" and "low quality". Or, if you don't want to resize it, whoever is printing it on the other end can resize it for the printer, using their photo printer software.

Another option would be to shoot the photo in a smaller format. You can do that by pressing the FUNC button located on the back of the camera, then go to the last option at the bottom left of the function screen. You will be given the option of L, M1, M2, S. Select "S", and it will shoot smaller photo files.

How do I E-Mail Photos from my Olympus fe-290 on a dell laptop with winows vista. I do have the USB cord, thanks you


method 1 without photo management software:

To e-mail pictures from your camera with your laptop just hook up the camera to your laptop
and widows should come up with a menu asking you what you want to do with this device.
choose open folder to view files this should make the cameras media show up on the desktop.
You should also be able to see the media on the camera under my computer removable storage.
Or if it shows up here as a camera just right click and choose explore device. With most cameras
thier should be a folder called DCIM your pictures should be in this directory. Some cameras may
have subdirectories like video and thumnails in this directory also.

Once you've found the pictures, open you e-mail client or web mail and create a new e-mail. Open the attachment button. this should bring up a file manager that will allow you to find your pictures and select the ones you want to send. Some e-mail programs will have a white clipboard area beside the attachment button. If the e-mail client your using does, then you can just drag and drop
the pictures here to attach them to your e-mail

If your sending large picture files say 6.0mp and up then don't send more than one to 3 per e-mail
otherwise it can chog up your e-mail client for several minutes to hours.

If you want to send many pictures or video files to friends and family members you might consider
Dropbox. This is an online backup and storage program that will allow to share files online.

Method 2 with photo management:

Photo management software can take alot of the manual process of getting photos from your camera and storing them on your hard drive, fixing lighting, fixing red eye, fixing orientation,
tagging, organizing and other things you may want to do with your photos and automating the
process. Some of these have either the ability to create web albums or email pictures directly
from the photo management software. I personally like Picasa from Google

I want to attach digital pictures to send along with email messages but the picture files are too large. How can I rectify this issue?


What format are they stored in. I would have thought those stored in .JPG format would be ok to attach.

1) Check format of each picture, if necessary convert to .jpg or JPEG format. Most photo editing software will allow you to do this.

2) If already in .JPG format then reduce the size of photo's using photo editing software.

3) Limit the number of pictures you attach, I'd keep my emails to a max of about 5-6 Mhz. (3 pictures)

E mailed pictures arrive too large


reduce resolution on camera itself or choose a smaller resolution when sending pics via Email. Not all Email programs support this. You can also resize your pics before sending by using "XP powertoys" free from microsoft and includes a resizing tool. 640X480 is plenty big for Email.

Re-Sized Photos are Grainy


Hi,

This camera takes pictures with a Ppi of 72. That is why the pictures look huge on the screen. To get good quality prints you need to have at least 200 ppi, or even better, 300 ppi.

Or, the contrast of the pictures may be to low. I have an FZ7 too, and I always tweak the contrast and color saturation before outputting.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
1. images straight from the FZ7 are generally low in contrast.

2. Pictures that are low in contrast might not look too bad on screen, but when they are printed they will look slightly greyish.

3. Low ppi pictures look fuzzy in print.

Maybe you can post a sample original picture??
