Down Sizing Photos

Recommended Posts

Experimenting with my Panasonic DMC FZ7 camera and tried using picture size and quality; 3.5 MB, are too 'big' to be uploaded to Photobucket...How can I downsize to be accepted by said photobucket, please?

 

Have been using the lowest form of quality in the past and no troubles uploading.

When I use Photobucket, I will usually have first cropped a pic and then quite often re-sized it, this in itself make the file size smaller but also when I resize a pic I can choose to save it at a lower compression - 95% makes a much smaller file than 100% and is perfectly good enough for the internet.

 

Just as an experiment I went off and found a pic larger than 3.5mb (it's 3.94mb) and uploaded it to Photobucket without any trouble.

 

It's not the best pic in the world, just the first one I found larger than 3.5mb.

I should have added, I usually use this program for titivating pics, you can either download it or do it online at their website.

Thanks for that, ayjay. Will give that a try.

 

Got around it by downloading to my 'useless' computer (full of virusessss) and using Picasa, then transferring back to my laptop.

I have given up trying to post pictures or upload videos ,you take a nice raw picture of something then bugger it up trying to reduce it to a few k so you can upload it on here and do a nice 1080p movie and see its filled a 16 gb memory after half an hour card then theres either no where to upload it to or your bloody connection breaks at 98% 2 days later if you do.

 

Strange how cameras have not gone the way i want ,the pictures get bigger but i want more detail

Believe NOTHING anyones says or writes unless you witness it yourself and even then your eyes can deceive you

 

There is only one opinion i listen to ,its mine and its ALWAYS right even when its wrong

 

Its far easier to curse the darkness than light one candle

I agree with you i think many more people would upload their photo's on here if there was a much simpler system that did some how not degrade the photo
