Question about Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ3 Digital Camera

Enlarging file size of pictures

When I take pictures, file size is often too small to enlarge and reproduce. File size is ususally in kilabytes, rather than megabytes. Is there a way to enlarge the file size when I take pictures? Or do I just have to shoot tighter shots? Or is this camera not capable of shooting bigger file pix?

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.

    Some manufacturers call it "Quality".

    What's the make and model of your camera? I might be able to find the specific setting you want, based on that.

Why wont windows live mail send pictures?

In all likelihood the issue is with the size of the photo (not actual dimension - size in this case refers to size of the file in megabytes or gigabytes.) If you can make the photo smaller, that will do, because Live mail probably has a size limit on the types of files you send.

Can not get pictures higher than 3.5meg, although settings say 8meg

Pixels and bytes are not the same thing. The 8mp indicates that the picture is 8 megapixels. The size of the file depends on the scene, but will almost always be less than 8 megabytes. 3.5 megabytes is about par for an 8 megapixel camera.

How to enlarge picture being scanned

You can't do that with the scanner, you need another program for that.
Install this  -it's free - and open the picture you want enlarged with it. Click Image, click Resize, in the new window select the new size and all the other options which you would want then click OK.  To save the new image click File then click one of the Save options - second one is best, this way the original file is kept untouched.

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.)
