Question For The Photographers

Recommended Posts

Or anyone who knows something about taking good pics and posting them. It seems all my pics are to big to post and Ive tried to resize with no luck. Its most likely my computer illeteracy(lol). Is there a certain setting(the megapixel or mode) on your camera that seems to take a better pic and keep the file size down? Thanks for any help in this matter.

I don't change the size on my camera. I take normal size pic, then crop down to the part I want. I then go to image resize, or in some software my be listed as "scale image" and adjust from there then save it. You can do this with paint on any windows software and not have to purchase anything.

I upload to photobucket or another image hosting site, and they resize as necessary.

I use Picasa, which is a feature-filled but easy to use photo editing/organizing program that you download for free from GOOGLE. With Picasa, you import pics from your camera in their original format, fix any defects, then export a pic you want to post online in whatever file size you like. For posting pics, I choose 640 dpi and have Picasa export the file to another place on my computer, then upload that pic. Picasa is very good at maintaining the sharpness and detail of the pic when you downsize the pixel count. Picasa also organizes all the photos on your hard drive into easy-to-find albums and shows them to you in thumbnail size, which is very handy when you are searching for pics. I also like Irfanview but find that it sometimes distorts the shape of the image when resizing it. Probably my fault but since Picasa is just about idiot-proof, it's easier for me to use.
