Well I bought the Fuji 9500 and what a good camera it is. Maybe the cameras that they sent to Australia or maybe Sydney in particular were tested before dispatch. Either way I am very happy with my 9500.

I have a little question. When I bought the 9500 they also gave me a 1 Gig Scan memory card, for $150:00 AUS this will take 50 odd RAW shots and heaps of 9 MP shots. So I naturally take a lot of 9MP shots. My problem comes when I try to send these shots to my sons in England via e-mails. Is there a neat way to convert these to small files suitable for e-mailing using Photoshop or some other utility.

Thanking you in advance

Regards
John

In the "Image" menu of photoshop is an option for "resize."

Select that, and then select "proportional," and also "resample image."

Then just type in the desired dimensions.

Save the resulting file WITH A NEW name, so that you don't destroy your original.

In addition to resizing for e-mail, another way to let your friends and family members see photos you take is via an online album.

Many Internet Service Providers give you some space you can use for this purpose.

Or, you can use a service like http://www.pbase.com (and there are many more).

Then, rather than sending the images to everyone you want to see them, just send them a link to the album or individual photos that you've placed online.

MicroSoft has a "Power Toy" to add 'Resize Image' to the right click menu !

It is one of my most valuable tools !
