I don't know if this is the sort of question I can ask here, but does anyone know how to reduce photo sizes to send by email so it doesn't take ages to send and open them? My OH has a new camera and the photos are rather big. I forgot my camera (Canon Ixus 55) for my granddaughter's baptism so took photos with OH's camera and my son can't open them, they have a poor internet signal.

usually cameras come with software for the computer you can reduce the size of your images and still keep the original.

you should also be able to choose the image size on the camera before you take the picture

David K thank you so much. Some useful information there. I think perhaps to start the point and shoot option would be the most practical so I'll look into the Canon Powershot. Thanks again. 

David K

Excellent choice, Heather. The Canon PowerShot SX500 is available for £139.99 from Argos.....that's an £100.00 reduction.

David K

Thanks, Brumbull....yes, & very popular at my camera club.

Heather, I've just taken another look at the Canon PowerShot SX500 and it is in fact listed as a bridge camera. So, if you feel a compact camera fits the bill, the Panasonic DMC SZ9 could be a contender.

There are just so many to choose from.

Just to muddy the waters further, I've recently bought a compact Nikon Coolpix L27.....fits neatly into my top pocket and must say, I'm really pleased with it. - Cost £44.99 from Argos.

Mine is a Nikon Coolpix L25, uncomplicated and takes decent enough pictures for my needs. Point & press that's me.

Lovely pics everyone.

Well done with your new camera, Ann. What setting did you use?

David K

Nice shot, John...thanks for posting it.

What lovely pics, love the robin, cute little dog and even a pic of dovefromabove!

Now those are really nice, Ann.  ......you can see you have a quality zoom lens.

Glad to hear you're getting used to your new camera (early days) and maybe supporting the extra weight of the lens from underneath with your left hand will help.

I would guess you probably took the landscapes on SP2 setting.
