All my pics are around 1mb. How do you post good quality pics at such small sizes?

I have a 5mp camera but I can change the setting at which it takes the picture if that will help.

Take your pictures as large as possible as you may want to print some and size is the key there as it allows you to crop for better composition. For the internet, in your photo editing program, resize to 600 pixels for the longest side. What photo editing program(s) are you using?

The only thing I have used yet is the Kodak software supplied with the camera.

Somewhere in the program you should have a resize option. Keeping the width and height linked andenter 600(pixels) in the long side and see what happens. If you can't find it in your program try Infranview, it's a free editing program. Photoshop Elements 2 will run you about $100 but is a great program to learn editing and using layers etc.I try and keep most of my posts under 160k as I use dial up and know many others do as well.

I don't seem to have a resize option using Kodak. I will have to look into some other programs. Thanks for the help.

Download Irfanview. It will do a great many things including what you want to do - and it's free. Also download the Irfanview plugins.

With Irfanview, you can save you pictures at a different size, and also at different qualities. I think you'll find that the 250kb upper limit is more than adequate both for big pictures & high quality.
