Picture file size help

Hello!
When I first got the camera, it was taking huge pictures (4ft x 3ft) which is what I want. However it seems that the file size keeps changing, and I can't figure out how to change it back. I would like to camera to take the biggest file size pictures as possible. Thanks!

What makes and models are your two cameras? What image settings are you using on the two cameras?
Without knowing the specifics, I'd say your Nikon is shooting larger pictures and saving them with less compression (better quality setting).

I have my S610 set to take photos @ 5MB. But when I download them to Picassa, they are ~1.2 MB. Is this a camera setting or Picassa?


Neither. The camera is taking pictures at 5 megapixels resolution. The file size of the image is only loosely related to the resolution. You'll note that your pictures are all different sizes. The size is dependent on the content of the picture. If you take a picture of a blank wall or a plain blue sky, the file size will be smaller than the file size of a picture of a cluttered scene, because it takes more bytes to record detail.

If you look at your pictures in your image viewer, you'll see that the pictures are all the same dimension (width and height), regardless of the file size.

Hello, My camera had been taking photos under a file size of 1 MB, normally 800 KB. Today for some inexplicable reason (I must have done something!), the photo file size is 4MB, too large to send and use...


On your camera, look for settings. You must have set it on "Large" or "Max" picture quality. Thus making your 'normal' 800kb into a more better quality.

On your laptop/computer try to open it in a image editor and change the resolution of the picture.

When I download pictures from my sony cybershot 3x they are all 48 inches wide - huge, so they are taking up all the memory on my camera and computer. How do I change the size yet keep high resolution? ...


well if you want the pictures smaller effectively you will lose quality. There are many options here. Keep the high quality ones you want and plan to possibly need that high of quality, then the rest convert to a lower quality. You can also just change the settings on your camera so that all the pictures are a lower quality. Also what format are the pictures in right now?
Thank you,
Lee

Hi there I just bought a eos d2000 camera and am concerned about the file size when transfering the images onto my laptop. they seem to be way smaller than most digital images and im not shure if this is a...


Go into the camera's settings and see if there is an option there to change the resolution, if it's the size in MegaPixels you're concerned about.
There may also be an option to take the pictures in RAW format rather than JPG, if it's the size in MegaBytes that you're concerned about.

Other tell-tale signs of small files could be:
File is a video file.
Picture was taken as a burst or panoramic.
Digital zoom was at full. (Try setting the camera to not use digital zoom - it's basically just cropped.)

Enlarging file size of pictures


That camera shoots at 7.2Megapixels at max resolution, that should print an 8.5x11 without any issue.

Check the settings on the camera to make sure that you've got it set to take "high" resolution, and not "low".

In the settings, there should be a resolution option that you can change. It's likely set to take lower resolution that what the camera can actually handle.

Image Quality decrease


Um ok. first off, chill with the images being described in inches. The DSC-S40 is way too simple to get lost with. You only have 2 options to play with. One is the resolution which you want to be as high as possible unless you have some special reason for it not to be. Two is you have 2 image quality settings to choose from(Fine and Standard). choose "fine" of course for best results. yes the files size will be a bit larger, but you get the best possible image. Remeber, this is considered a cheap camera, so you want the most it can offer.

Now about the file size anomalies. Dont worry about it. Here is the only conclusion I can come up with that sounds logical. .JPG and most "compressed" image types will never be the same size if taken from a camera unless the same exact picture is shot 2 times in a row very fast witout the camera moving. files size on a compressed image depends on the amount of color variations the camera has to render into a file. The more color variations, the more data the .JPG file contains. It is natural for file sizes from a camera to differ. If you set your camera at 4M and take a picture, and then you set it to 3M and try to take the same picture again thinking it will save space, in theory this is true, but remeber how "compressed" images are rendered. You may have had only the slightest difference of light change on the next pitcture you took . This can have a significant impact on the file size, and can result in a lower res image being bigger in file size than the higher res image. Now, if you are talking a huge difference like 3M@1500kb yet 4M gives you 500kb, then you either have it set to "standard" quality, or you are really lost in this stuff.

But anyway, I hope this is plenty of info. And makes plenty of sense to anyone who understands compressed images.
