All my emails with attachments don't send stays in the outbox please help very frustrated. Thanks in our company


Not sure what email program or service you are using it could be the size of your files are too large. If they are pictures you can resize them smaller in pc paint and then save the smaller size and try sending the smaller file. If it is a document with inserted pictures you may need to resize the inserted pictures and try sending the downsized document file. If you are trying to send a large file like a video file you could use a drop box service but remember files should not be used if confidential or intellectual property sensitive to you.

To e-mail a video takes a very very long time


This is normal. Depending on your camera, the higher the quality of video, the larger the file-size. Larger files are difficult, if not impossible to send, due to file-size restrictions most email servers impose. In order to email videos, check you user guide to see if you can reduce the quality of your video, resulting in a smaller file-size. If not, you can look into services such as https://www.yousendit.com/ which allows you to send large files.

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.

Converting large pictures files to smaller files


There are at least three alternatives.

1. Take smaller pictures. Your camera should have mulitple resolutions available, possibly including one as small as 640x480. Since you didn't specify the model of your camera, I can neither tell you the smallest available on your camera, nor how to set it.

2. Reduce the size on the camera. Again, I can't be too specific, but there probably is an item in the Playback menu to resize pictures.

3. Reduce the size on the computer. Just about any photo manipulation software (free or otherwise) on Windows or Mac will have the ability to reduce the size of a photo.

My preference is to do it on the computer, preferring to take my pics at the camera's best resolution. That way, if Bigfoot wanders by or a UFO lands outside, I'll have the best pics I can get.

I scanned a document, but when I go to attach the file, it stays in attaching files forever??


Greg, Do you mean that when you want to send it by email it keeps attaching the file forever? If yes then check the size of the scanned document. What happens is that the moment you attach a document to an email Windows start sending it to the email server and that takes time as uploading is slower than downloading. And if the file a large one as scanned documents can be, then it will take that much longer. Try a smaller document first. Size wise small document. If that works fine then you can try larger documents. yes it may be time consuming but there is no price for mental satisfaction. To reduce the size of the scanned document, reduce the pixels in settings of the scanner. or reduce the page size. You will find the document reduced many times over.

How do I change the settings on the video part. The AVI file type is too large to send to my prof. via email


You might be better converting the video file to MP4, this will compress the video file, but can your Prof. view a MP4 video file.
You can copy the file to a CD or DVD disc (depending upon the size of the video file) and post it.
To create a smaller video file you need to re-create the video at a lower resolution, but this maybe still be too large to send by e-mail.

Hi..I've downloaded pictures and videos from my digital camera. I am able to send the pictures but not the vidoes.....can you help? Thank you, Rachel


I'm suspecting your internet service provider can't handle the large files (maybe the connection is too slow, or your email account has a file size limitation). Try to create a SMALL video file with your camera...literally no more than 1 or 2 seconds, so that it will have SMALL size. If possible, use a smaller/lower resolution video setting to help keep the file size down. Then upload the small file to your email. Check the file size to see the size as compared to the other videos, and your regular photos. If you are able to send it, and the size is similar to your photos, then it means that the other videos are just too big. (how big are those original video files you were having touble with?).

Emailing Video taken on a FinePix A800


Hi!

It's possible that the video file you are sending is too large. A few seconds of video from your camera will already be in a few megabytes (assuming that the camera is set to high resolution). How large is the file?

For smaller file size of video from your camera, you can lower the frame size. Here's how you do it:

If you are planning to send the file via email - select a lower quality.

I hope that helps.

Have a nice day!

Photo size too large for email


You can do that in 2 ways.

1) Shoot the photo or video in reduced size (less quality). This can achieved by adjusting the settings in your camera.

2) Use 3rd party software like photoshop or Microsoft paint to manually reduce the size using it.
