changing folder size
Okay, I have a card I'd like to post, but the jpeg fil is much too large. How do I fix it? :confusion:

You'll need to resize the image with software like Photoshop. Some people email the picture to themselves and their email account reduces the file size. This thread may be helpful to you:

It also helps to scan at a low resolution like 72 dpi. I find if I am still a bit too big, the uploader will take it down to the size allowed.

Our stand alone computer had Photoshop which is what I used in the past, until our computer crashed. Now that I'm on a laptop, I use a program called Paint.

Photoshop was a bit more user friendly because I would just plug my camera into my computer, turn my camera on, open Photoshop, select 'import' from the file menu and then select what pictures I wanted. From there, I would use Photoshop to change the size of my pictures.

Paint is a bit more technical to use.

Here is a YouTube vid that basically shows how I did mine, using Photoshop:

How nice of you to find that for all of us. It does work and I do use Photo Shop Elements.

I use IrfanView to resize photo's-

I believe that is a free program. There is also one called Pix Resizer that will do it for free.

Yes, Irfanview is free. Sorry, I did not write that. Please forgive me all I was storm chasing that night and came home exhausted and too horrible news.

Take care with your storm chasing. I see that it can be very hazardous, even for the pros.

Fab, I am a pro. I have a huge amount of training and education in meteorology. I am a weather researcher. I don't want anybody making assumptions that I am hobbyist and if I can do it they can do it too. Back to our regular schedule thread. :)
