Posting Picture Pictures taken with digital cameras are huge files and take for ever to load specially for those with dial up. They really slow the board down not counting taking up a tremendous amount of band width. You'll have to reduce the size before you post them..here is a free progam that is real easy to use..go here and down load it for free. Resize them to 800 X 600 pixels...Thank you http://www.irfanview.net/

Dose anyone know how many (bytes) a 800 x 600 picture takes up.
I have to do some thing about picture size...it's eating up a huge
amount of space

Um, that's a bit high there 440. My camera is 3.2 megapixels and taken pictures that are 2048 x 1536 and those pics are 28" x 21" in size. They are only 500-600 Kb's. Not even one MB. When I down size them to 800 x 600 they are only 45 KB. This is a j-peg, saved in high quality. Bitmaps and Tiffs are larger than J-pegs so maybe that's the difference.

Are you saving them as J-peg? Or bitmap. I noticed the pics of your carb were bitmaps. They are bigger in size than J-peg.

Save it as a j-peg instead of bitmap. It's easy, when you go to save, it will ask you where to save to and ask for a file name. Right under the file name, select j-peg from the drop down list.

In irfanview After you resizes...you go to Save..a window will pop-up down at the
bottom click on the arrow and choose j-peg and it'll save it as a J-peg.

You can set your resolution lower on your cam. If you have the setting on the highest it creates a larger file with more pixels saved. If you lower the resolution the files will be smaller with fewer pixels saved. Unless you are blowing them up to like poster size the resolution of today’s videos and photos are way higher than needed, especially for small photo's or video's for postings. You change setup and then you will not have to resize to post. Just remember to change it back if you want to save it forever, as the highest resolution would be optimal. The setting should be in your set up files.
