HUGE pictures

Postby labtrainer » Mon Mar 12, 2012 5:49 pm

Hi every body, I'm usually on the Dog Training Forum, but I have a photography question.
I have tried to post some pictures on DHC and send via e-mail from my photobucket account , when I try to e-mail, the photos come out super huge and often I get a error message which prevents me from sending the e-mail.
How can I reduse the size?
Please be gentle I'm a newbie to this photo stuff. :rolleyes: :smile:

Most of us resize photos via Photoshop, Photoshop Elements,Lightroom or other photo editing software. If you dont have a photo editing program,I could resize them for you. Pm me and let me know.

Thanks Mad Duck, I might take you up on that.
How do I know if a photo is going to be too big before I try to email it?
When I view a photo on photo bucket or on my desktop it looks fine, it only seems to be a problem when I try to email them.
Thanks for helping!

If you are shooting a digital camera,chances are the file will be too big or problematic to display on a website. Even adjusting the file size on the camera will most likely produce an image that is too big for most emails to display properly.
What kind of photo editing program are you using?

If you are using Picasa 3 go to where it says export pic and hightlight it export and it will go to a Picasa file where you download it to photobucket and it will be already resized

I use http://tinypic.com/index.php

and resize with their easy field prompt offering

i use 15" screen from the drop down RESIZE BOX

after I have downloaded the file from my computer using the that sites BROWSE button

once it is downloaded I select and copy what under the IMAGE CODE FOR FORUMS AND MESSAGE BOARDS
and then paste in your post field here..it is really easy. the only drawback is the answering the sites question, which is their way of getting paid advertising... so you can use it for free.

if you have a lot of pictures, then you should use a resize feature on your computer. i bet almost every computer comes with a photo editor!!! but when you resize , do not just save!! NOTE: you must find out here what the max size is, so you can resize down below that ...it could be in pixtels, or it could be in KBs

use SAVE AS and rename the picture...i usually call it the same name as before but ad -sized. that way you still have the original sized picture on your computer

good luck

once you do it, youl realize how easy it is.
