Hi there
as far as i can find out that is not possible but you could always copy and paste it into a blank word document, re size it by using the corner handle if it is still to big, send it as an attatchment and the recipient can then lift the jpeg off and do what thay want with it.

hope this helps

What is the largest size photograph and longest distance the GE X550-BK 16 megapixels digital camera 15x optical 6x Digital can take a photograph


The largest size is 16 mega pixel. But they used to say it only could print up to a certain size. But in programs like Adobe Photosho, after you edited the image you can set the size. Then the program, will render the image to that size. Within limits off course. Don't try to make a 30 ft or 10 meter picture from a 1 mega pixel picture. I have printed A0 pictures from a 16 mega pixel camera and they look great.
The longest distance is as far as the camera can look. Most of the time our atmosphere is limiting the distance. And zooming in to the max, can give blurred pictures when you use a low shutter speed. Don't use the digital soon, because it is the same as cropping in Photoshop. When you did not use the digital zoom, you can reframe the picture and choose a better cut later. When you want to start photographing, this bridge camera could be great to start, but perhaps you also consider buying a cheap DSLR, or a mirror less system camera, because the bigger sensors in these cameras give better pictures when you have not the optimal light. When you want to use the full length of the lens, stay with this camera, because long lenses on a DSLR or system camera cost a fortune.

I have olympus camedia 4.0 mega pixel. old camera. need to know how to change the camera photo storage from 18 photos to at least 64 photos storage


Hi, jamesepatton, and welcome to FixYa.
I am going to assume that you are referring to the camera's internal storage, as opposed to the camera's removable storage card.
Obviously, to increase the storage on a removable card, one need only purchase another, higher capacity storage card.
To change the camera's internal storage capacity, one needs to reduce the resolution of the pictures one takes.
Example- your Olympus is capable of taking a 4.0 mega pixel sized picture. This size picture can generate a fairly large data file (after all, pictures- like Word documents- are only data files!) While this is what is normally programmed into the camera at the factory, you are not 'married' to this size. In the "Setting" menu of the camera, there will be an option to change the mega pixel (mp) setting. Try lowering it to the next lower setting (say, 3.0 mp) and shoot until the camera tells you it's full. You may have to try several different mp setting, but eventually you'll land on the right one. It's going to depend a lot on what is in your pictures as well, as different scenes and content can affect file size.
A quick note here: Lowering the mp setting will affect the quality (and/or resolution) of the photo. I have found that for a great majority of the photos that I personally take, a 2.0 mp setting is just fine. I am by no means shooting magazine covers or entering my pictures in contests, I shoot 'em, print 'em and save 'em. Just your basic home pictures.
If resolution/quality is important, I would highly recommend that you save ALL pictures to a removable memory card and leave the camera set on 4.0 mp.
Good luck, and let us know how you go!

I have a Sony DCR-SR43 handycam. I am a amateur photographer. When i shoot some shots, the file size is very large (208 or so..). Is there any software to compress the file.


The size of the file depends mostly on the resolution. Higher resolution gives more detail and the picture can be printed larger without showing pixelation, but this requires more data, so the files are larger. Recent cameras offer resolutions stated in terms of 10 or 14 megapixels. That much data needs a large file to store it. Reducing the resolution in the camera settings to 5 or 3 megapixels (or less) will give you a much smaller file. In the camera, this will usually be specified in terms of pixels wide by pixels deep (e.g. 1600x1200).

You can reduce the size of a picture in a photo editing program (resize or resample), which will also reduce the resolution.

Compressing the file is not likely to help much. Usually these files are in a format (.jpg) that is already compressed. The camera may allow more than one quality of compression. You can set this to compress the pics more, but this will reduce the quality of the image and introduce more digital noise. It is also possible to increase the amount of compression when saving an edited file in a photo editor, by specifying this at the point of saving. None of these will make as large a difference as reducing the resolution by resizing.

My wife`s Kodak Easyshare V1253 has to be reset (date and time) every time we replace the battery. What could the problem be? Also, it takes too long to take one picture from another (probably setting...


Regarding the date and time, Actually its normal everytime you removed the battery you need to reset the date its is because the camera doesnt have a internal or built-in battery that can run the internal clock or maintain the date settings.,

Regarding the taking picture that will take time, it is because your using a too high mega pixel of the camera, Higher mega pixel will have a bigger file size and it will take to process the picture. the best thing you can do is to lower the Mega pixel or the picture size make it atleast 5MP or 6MP., I can guarantee to you you will have a great picture outcome and lessen the time of processing picture.

By the way you can lower the mega pixel (picture size)by pressing the menu button of your camera

Dont you worry about that! Its normal specialy if you are using the higher mega pixel of your camera.

For you to minimized the processing you need to lower the mega pixel of picture size., you can adjust your picture size under Menu settings, And choose not lower or higher than 6 mega pixel to have a good quality picture printout

Changeing resolution


On the back of the camera, push "Menu."
A menu screen comes up.

The first option is the one you're looking for:
"Image Size."

UNDER that option, the first sub-option is "8 M," the next is "3:2," the next is "5 M" and so on. That "M" is "Mega Pixels, or "million pixels." The size of the file will be measured in megapixels, and each "pixel" requires 3 Bytes of memory to define it. (A "pixel" is like one tile in a mosaic tile image.)

You change the options and sub-options in the menu by using the round donut-shaped control on the camera back. On the outside of the "donut" there are arrowheads pointing Up, Down, Left and Right. When you push the donut in the spot next to an arrowhead, you go whichever way the arrowhead points. Up goes through the MAIN options, right/left takes you through the SUB-options under the main option.

Change from a lower file size to a higher one by going left and right through the "Image Size" sub-menu. The biggest file size is "8 M" and I suspect the smallest is at the extreme opposite side of the list.

Someone apparently set your camera, maybe before you bought it, to a file size that is as small as possible, so you could fit the maximum number of pictures in the camera. But to get a better image for printing, you need to change to something with more pixels!

Internal memory


That is most likely correct. I have a Z740 and can only take around 20. My moms will only take 9! Memory cards are cheap. Get a 1 gb card which will hold around 600 or more pictures. You can get one in electronics at wal-mart for around 20-30 dollars. It's a good investment.
