And a Merry Xmas to you too!

Apologies if you misunderstood the tone of my last post. I was only trying to help you and all the visitors to the forum understand the technicalities of sending images electronically.

If you don't have any software to reduce image size there are various free products available like PICASA and GIMP which will do the job for you. Also, the PAINT program which comes with Windows will also do the job, albeit in a fairly rudimentary way.

Posting full size images straight out of the camera takes much longer for viewers to see them because of the large file sizes. A typical 8-10mega pixel camera, for example, will produce images that are at least 3000 pixels wide. As the typical computer screen is only running at around 1000-1200 pixels in width, you are actually sending an image that is much larger than it needs to be!. So, by reducing the image's physical size from say, 2-3MB (million bytes), to around 100KB (thousand bytes) will will still produce an image that will view well on a computer screen but will download much faster.

I hope that helps

Neil (and a merry xmas to YOU too!!)

Hi everyone,

Following the recent posts about image size, I thought it might help to write a short post on my own blog which hopefully explains the problem and how to easily resize an image.

It can be seen here.

The image above is Esuri West Course.

Hi Neil that is very interesting thank you!

Another easy and very quick way to compress multiple photos that Ive found (With Windows XP, Vista and Win7) is to
  1. Open the folder where the photo(s) are,
  2. Select all the photos that you want to send, by holding the CTRL key down whilst clicking on each photo
  3. When you have made your selection, right click on one of the selected photos.
  4. A dialog box appears and you chose 'SEND TO'.
  5. Then you choose 'mail recipient'
  6. Then another box appears and you have a choice of how compressed the photos are. For normal photos = 'snaps' for all emailing and for photos I upload to this forum - I choose the smallest one.
  7. Send it

It seems like many steps but it takes seconds. I sometimes send myself the photos like this and I save the compressed ones. This saves using other software as well. Also I can do multiple photos immediately this way...saving a lot of time doing it separately with another progamme.

Of course the full size photo (as you well know) is great when you want to zoom in as you still have a lot of detail and also I like to crop photos within the big file. I zoom into a face (say) and again using microsoft windows tools make a new photo. This is done by right clicking on the photo and choosing 'preview' and you will see the tools at the top allowing you to drag a box which is the same dimensions as the photo and make a cut. You get e.g more natural face shots this way I think. This expands/zooms the small area you have chosen and makes a new full size photo.

You couldn't do this on a very compressed photo. You need the original

Sadly this feature seems to have gone in Windows 7 - and it bugs me! As it was so good to do everything I wanted in windows... as a non techie, photo-layman! It can be found with extra clicks by right clicking on the selected photo(s) and choose 'preview' (as before) and now choose 'open' then choose 'Microsoft Office picture manager'. Im guessing that you also need MS Office for this -whereas before it was in Windows. I have office so this still works fine for me personally. And again is a very quick method of doing many photos.... great for emailing a bunch of eg holiday snaps to friends.

Thanks and Neil, you are a professional photographer, not trying to tell you stuff you already know... this is more for other lay-people like me.

Jon
