How to make my picture smaller


I am unclear on exactly what you are trying to achieve, but I assume you wish to resize your photos because they are too big to send by email? If you are on a PC download and install irfanview
http://www.irfanview.com/
install it , it is freeware, open your photo with it and go to Edit on the top menu, Resize/Resample and you will be able to resize the photo to a percentage or size of choice. When you save as JPG you can choose a higher compression level if the file is still too large (too much compression and you will see artifacts so use with care).Then 'File Save As...
IMPORTANT WHEN YOU SAVE THE FILE GIVE IT A DIFFERENT NAME AS YOU DO NOT WANT TO OVERWRITE THE ORIGINAL!
It is interesting to note that it is probably worth not resizing to start with but just resave the file as a different name, choose 75% compression save as a JPG and the file will probably be a lot smaller than the original as it is an efficient compression engine.
I hope I have been of help but please do not hesitate to ask if you have any further questions.

My pictures are too large when downloaded onto laptop. How can I change the setting so that I can mail to friends? I never had a problem until my son borrowed the camera & altered it!


You can resize the images. For this you can use Irfanview or Paint. Or click here to visit a website which will allows you to upload and resize photos.it allows you to resize one by one.

If you want to use Paint, right-click on any photo you wish to resize and click edit. Press Ctrl+A to select the complete photo. Then drag the sliders wher you can see the end of the photo. Or

  1. Open the image file you wish to edit.
  2. Click the Image Menu at the top and select Stretch/Skew Image.
  3. Choose a percentage figure to resize the image. To avoid distortion, choose the same percentage for the horizontal and vertical stretch.
  4. Click OK.
  5. Once you have the desired size, click File, then Save or click Save As... to prevent overwriting the original image.

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)

Pictures Too Large to Email ?


You've got several options here.

1. Set the resolution in the camera. Press the Fn button, then select Size. The smallest choice is 1024x768, which is less than one megapixel. But if you just happen to spot that UFO, you won't get very good pics of it. And if all you wanted was 1MP pictures, why did you bother go get an 8MP camera?

2. Resize the picture on the camera. Press the E(ffect) button, then select Resize.

3. Do the resizing on the PC. Both Windows Photo Gallery and iPhoto have this capability. In some ways this is the best option, since you get all the pics in high-res, just in case that UFO shows up in a corner. And when you send email, you're probably sitting at a computer anyway.

Emailing photos


Hi,

I would still take them at a high resolution. That way if you would want to make prints they would be of good quality.

If you want to email them the best thing to do is to download them and then open the pictures you want to email with whatever editing program you have and use the resize options. If you resize them to around 400 X 600 or even 600 X 800 pixels they should be a good size to email. Once you resize them use the Save as... menu option to put a suffix on it.

For example, if you had a picture named Image_0001. Open it at full size. Resize it. Then select Save as... and name it Image_001_small or Image_001_email. That leaves the original intact and now allows you to attach the smaller one to an email that is a nice size.

Hope this helps.

Thanks for using Fixya.

Can i email off the camera


the easiest way to download and email a photo from your camera is to use Picasa, free software from Google.

http://picasa.google.co.uk/

Once you plug in your camera or memory card, it's very easy to import images and there is a simple 'email' button to send the photos - it automatically resizes them for you so they're not too big

Pictures to large to sen d


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.

Emailing videos/movies


you should have a photo editting program on your computer.  Windows comes with 'Paint' that will work nicely.  You need to RESIZE the pictures before sending them via e-mail. 

 

Open the photo program, find 'resize' option, then 'save as' a new file name. 

 

It's poor etiquette to send HUGE pics as attachments. Your friends will appreciate a nice size photo that fits the monitor.

How do I make an image file smaller so I can send it by e-mail?


To make an image file smaller for e-mail transmission, change the image file size in "Exif Viewer" or "FinePixViewer". Changing the size of an image file 1. Start up the Viewer and select the folder containing the image you wish to send. 2. Double-click the thumbnail for the image file you want to resize to open the image in its own full-size window. 3. Select "Image size" in the "Image" menu. 4. Set "%" as the "Unit" used for file size display. Then enter a value lower than 100 as the "Width" or "Height" and click the [OK] button. 5. Select "Save as" in the "File" menu to save the image. (You can also reduce the image file size by lowering the quality in "Save as type".)
