A friend asked how to send photos over the internet, I read somewhere that you could end up with enormous files that take an age to send. I think I also read that you save the photos in a different format that would make it easier??? Can anyone shed some light on the subject Mike
You don't need a shed! Photos are usually sent in Jpeg format. It is best to use a program such as Irfanview click here to reduce the size.
I've found it is not an exact science, as it depends on the recipients PC and connection speed. You may find it useful to email photos, after resizing, to yourself, and experiment with different settings.
If you send a photo without resizing, it will appear too large and require scrolling.
The pixel size is the important dimension to consider if they are intended primarily for viewing on screen. Given that monitor resolutions are not likely to be set much above 1028 oixels wide and the screen will also have a window framing it, you can usefully take the width down to 500 pixels before further reducing the file size by saving as Jpeg.
