I want to upload some pictures to a website, but it won't accept pictures greater than 2MB. Unfortunately, all my photos are over this threshhold so my beloved pictures can't be seen by my friends.
There is a programme which lets me reduce them but its only for XP, and I'm using Vista.
Is there any way I can reduce the size of the photos by changing the settings?
Thank you, The JB.

Re: The size of the images are too big
Use your favourite image editing software in Vista. Or use the software that came on CD with your camera (if it is not the one that runs on XP only).
Anyway as alternative solution you can either shoot photos in lower resolutions (1Mpix for example) and then the files won't be so big. But you will have only the small photo and no large one.
Or shoot as usual, then switch camera to "play" mode and when viewing images on camera, there is a menu option to resize the images - you can resize them to 1Mpix for example.
In the meantime search web for some free image editing software for Vista.
A 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

Just what exactly are you trying to do. Your picture to be uploaded and become the profile picture in a website profile page (like Facebook or yahoo or gmail)?
First of all you need to save the picture as jpeg format (recommended format for image and picture. You will need to shorten the image size of the picture. Because most of picture uploader needs at utmost 150 kb size of the image file. (In case your picture exceeds the allowable size.. there is a free software that you can use to cut the image size of your picture (like Image Resizer program)
Place your mouse over the upper right corner of your current profile picture or temporary image, and click on the pencil icon that appears.
Select "Browse" to find a photo on your computer to upload.
Select the photo to upload, check the box certifying that you have the right to distribute the picture and that it is not ****, and click "upload picture." If the picture is an acceptable size and file type, it will display.
If you have a webcam, you can choose "Show Camera" to take an instant profile picture. Be sure to select "Allow" so that Facebook can access your camera and microphone. Then, click the camera icon to take a picture, and choose "Save Picture" to set it as your profile picture.
However, on some occasion this will not upload pictures with larger size....My suggestion to you is to download Image Resizer software... Install this software to your computer... To use this.. find your pictures and right click to it.. Click the resize picture and it will copy with a smaller size (pictures with 2mb will resize to almost 80 kb... then select all pictures with lesser size and let this be the one to be uploaded..
Hope this help. Much appreciated if you rate this help.. thanks

You should have a setting on the camera with the option of picture quality and size. Select fine quality rather than super fine. Then you should select the size,small,passport,medium,postcard,large and widescreen are the usual terms. But somewhere it should give the actual size in dimensions e.g 640x480. This is the size i would recomend for downloading. When you download the images from the memory card make sure that when you are asked Where you want to save them you also check which format they are being saved as!! Save them as a jpeg and not a bitmap image as this is the most common used by websites.If you need to resize an image you already have on the pc,click on it and then right click,you should then have an option to "open with" and you can choose from many different applications.I find the easiest and quickest is" Paint" It will then open in the paint programe, goto image at the top of the page and click resize. you can then choose what size you like. Bear in mind that resizing affects quality although you can adjust virtually anything with the paint software.
