    down-sizing photo's

    I recently aquired a canon eos rebel camera. I love it, and take lots of photo's, however even on the lowest picture quality the files are still 1.5 meg, and are far to big to uplaod to mtbr. anybody have any sugestion's on how to down size? the owners manual I have only covers the very basic operation of the camera.

    That is one solution, but what's the resolution? It is probably something huge. If you have photoshop or any other editing software you could just crop it down and the save it as a jpeg.
    That would fix it.

    I've done the croping thing, but then 30% of the pic is missing. compressing only gets me so far, down to a meg or so. the program I have for photo editing is called jasc paint shop. a full size photo on this camera is like 8meg+ depending on how lush the backrround is. I'm now using the lowest setting and that's like 1-1.5 meg. this photo-bucket thing seems to be a good start though, thanks everyone. so far the photo's are taking like 5 min+ per photo to upload. I'll post some more once I get then edited down again in photo bucket.

    I'm not familiar with Paint Shop, but in Photoshop there's a "Save for Web" option, which allows you to compress it for posting online.

    There's probably something like that in Paint Shop. In fact, I would be shocked if there wasn't. Maybe check the help file for "resizing images"?

    Try saving the pics as a .gif file. And cropping a pic always helps.

    You could use a website like www.snipshot.com to resize/compress your images if you don't have/want an image editing program, or you could grab something like the free program Infanview
    Post your youtube mountain bike videos and they'll be included in our interactive World MTB video map!
