Hi,

I am new at digital photography and just today I went down the coast to take
some pics of the ferry that comes in for that area

Anyway, I went to send them to a friend and they come back to me , saying
they are to big for the server.

They were taken at 4.0mps,(the camera goes to 5mps)

Is they a way to reduce the size after they are taken to send though the
email so they won't come back?


His isn't the first time it has happened either.

I am using a Mac, and after getting the "info" from each pic, they seem to
be about 1MB-1.2MB each in size.

Is that too big to send?

I sent 6, they came back, so now I am sending 2 at a time.

Any help with this

Thanks,

D.

Yes, 6 times 1.2 Mb = 7.2 MB.

Many servers have a limit to the size of attachments to email.
I would bet that your friend is a member of AOL.

You should not send in more than 2 MB total in one email. If you have more,
send in separate email.

Limit the size of your attached file to 2 Megabytes.

Limit the size of your attachments. If you are sending to someone with a
dial-up connection, 1 to 2 MB may be an appropriate upper limit. About 10 MB
for broadband users.

As an example, the maximum size of a file you can send as an attachment to
an email from AOL to an Internet address is 2 MBytes.

Resize the PICs with SW. Make the PIC 1024x768, save it and you should have
sizes <500k.

Explanations of how to accomplish that would be real nice for those that
haven't done it and haven't bought web space for a few hundred per year.

Thanx

Good Point. The best answer likely exists within the camera's
documentation. Nearly every camera sold has instruction on how to
upload a photo album to the web. I know my HP camera does.

But if it doesn't , then there are a million other ways to get your
photo album on the web. My cheapo version of Frontpage has a photo
album object that works for me. Others are available as freeware or
shareware.

The cost of my web site is $1 for the first year after which I can
find another for less than $10 a year. My domain name cost $1.95 for
the first year.

Domain name:
https://www.godaddy.com/gdshop/registrar/search.asp?se=...

Web Site
http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&category=...


Have fun,
PJ

There are many places where web space is very cheap, from free with lots of
commercials to a few dollars per month with no commercials. Google for "web
host" no quotes.

A Domain Name is not necessary if you use one of the Free hosts. The cost of
that is commercials and a very long web address.

Get Domain Name first. About $8.95 per year or less.
Domain Name Registrar and a low cost host is:
http://www.godaddy.com/
Here you register your domain name and/or host a web site.
Godaddy is the probably the lowest cost Domain Name Registrar.

My Web Host is an Australian company (I am in the USA): About $84 per year
or $8 per month. First year is free with one time setup fee of $30. I use
the Windows server because I use FrontPage for my HTML editor.
http://www.webstrikesolutions.com/
Their Servers are located in the USA.

For how to do it, you design your web site with one of the many HTML editors
(web page design) that are available, I use Microsoft FrontPage 2000.

Then you uplink the web site you designed to the web server with a FTP
program. FrontPage can also transmit your web site. I do not like how
FrontPage does it, so I do not use FrontPage for Uplink.
I use WS_FTP (much more control over what you uplink):
http://www.ipswitch.com/
There is a free version, not for commercial use.

Kodak's Ofoto and other online printing companies will let you
share the photos, perhaps password-protected at some sites, with
friends and family.

One way to do it where you won't need to resize or e-mail is one of the
internet pic sharing sites
www.snapfish.com
www.shutterfly.com/
http://www.ofoto.com/Welcome.jsp
http://www.fototime.com/

are just a few of the better known, but there are many more out there. With
these you just E-mail a link(very easy to do) to your recipient, they open
the link & there are your pics. I just down loaded that free program that
MoHo referred to & that looks like another good way. I use fototime myself &
am real happy with it.
