My photos seem to take up masses of memory and therefore take ages to attach to e-mail, whereafter nobody can open them anyway! My husband thinks I should change something on the camera rather than PC. What can I do?

You can use just about any photo editing program to reduce the resolution of the photos. For example, in Windows Photo Gallery select "E-mail" from the menu. If you know you're not going to do anything but email the photos, you can reduce the resolution in the camera so as to create smaller photos in the first place using the Still Image Size command in the Shooting menu. However, if you happen to take a great photo you won't be able to make a good print of it because it's too small.
You first download the photos from your memory card to your computer and usually to your My Documents-My pictures.Then connect to the internet on your email account,lets say yahoo for example.Then go to compose a new message and right down the under the "Subject"box you will see Attach files box there,click it and you will be shown at least four rectangular boxes numbered file 1:choose file.Click it and you will be given a dialog box on where to get he files you want attached.Go to "My documents-My picturesthen click the photo you chose and click [open] on the right hand option box.The file you chose will now appear on the File 1 rectangle box. Do the same for the other files if you want to add more pictures.Then of course send it.Sending it may take time,so be patient.If successful it will say "sent".If not some of your file are too large.Reduce the megapixels to a max.of 3.00mpxls. in your camera.Good luck.
I take it your camera shows as a mass storage device when you click onto my computer.
1) Double click on your C: drive, when its open RMB single click on the back ground. A box will pop up and offer several options, select NEW the FOLDER.
This will put a folder on your C: drive. With the title new folder highligted in blue, just type the word Photos and hit return. This should rename the new folder to photos.
2) Double LMB click on your photos folder, this should open it up, click on the double square icon in the top right hand corner of the window to reduce its size. Then click on the blue title bar of the window and move it to the right hand side of your screen.
3) Double LMB click on you mass storage device folder. It should open, you may see one or probably 2 folders inside. One is your camera memory, the other is the memory card. One at a time, double click on the a folder, when it opens, are there any files inside ?
If not, just arrow back (Top left hand side of window) and open the next folder. Here there should be your photographs.
Once found got to the menu bar select Edit - Select all. Then back on the menu bar select Copy.
Move your curser to the Photos folder you just created and from the menu bar select File - Paste.
This should copy over all your photos. Once completed to you satisfaction, go back to your camera (MASS STORAGE) and edit - select all then file - delete.
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.
You did not mention the make or model of the camera. Your symptoms seem to indicate you are using internal memory rather than the card. Card typically hold from 200-2,000 high quality photos (depending on the size of the card and the camera).
Another possibility is that you have a high end camera and are shooting in the RAW format. RAW is only for the more experienced users who post process their work. If this is the case switch to JPG.
Note reducing the picture size only makes the pictures lower quality and is only useful if you only post them on the web.
Hi, You need to have a seperate software for reducing the size or modifying the ur photo, there are numerous softwares on net, use www.download.com for free ware software, u will definitely get photo size reducing softwares...!!! Hoping a fixya from u... :)
When sending photos as e-mail attachments, the image (file) size should not be too large. Use the included image viewing program called Image Expert to save photos in reduced size. For instructions on installing Image Expert, see "Installing the image viewing program" on page 42 of the Instruction Manual.
1. Launch Image Expert.
2. Choose "Open Image" from the "File" menu.
3. Specify the image you want to reduce, then click "Open".
If the camera is connected using the USB cable, it is displayed as a removable disc. images on the camera can be opened directly by specifying the remove-able disc.
4. Click on "Change Size" in the "Image" menu.
5. Input values at "Width" and "Height", then click "OK". If "Keep Aspect Ratio" is checked, the size is changed without changing the image’s vertical:horizontal ratio.
6. The image is displayed at its new size.
7. Click on "Save As" in the "File" menu to save the image with the new size.
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".)
