Reducing file size to e-mail photos

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?
Thanks

Photos to big to import to some sites from my sony digital DSC-WX9 camera


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.

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.

I have downloaded and uploaded my photos but don't know how to send them to friends and family via email.


Select a file or files to highlight them...right-click and choose e-mail. A box will open giving you a choice to select other sizes. Do so, and then your e-mail will open with the pictures attached.

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.

After taking 20 photos says memory card is full


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.

Sending photos as an e-mail attachment


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.

How do I make an image file smaller so I can send it by e-mail?


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".)
