Default First day with my new FZ35

My new Lumix FZ35 arrived today and I just had to try it out. Got some decent photos considering it's the first day out, and some HD video which looks great. I tried posting photos in this thread but the file size is too big.

The camera seems user-friendly and I'm figuring out the menus. Still need to study the manual for what all the icons mean.

I'm not very computer savvy. Does anyone know if i-life on a MAC contains something for re-sizing photographs ? We have Photoshop but it's on another computer.

with Iphoto, you can resize it when you export the file. Just export it to your desktop, and generally choose large format, and high quality will reduce it to the size that will be accepted here. Then just upload it then delete it off your desktop. It will strip the exif info.

Hi guys. Yes, I have i-photo. Been using it for a long time to download photos to the computer but never used the re-sizing option. This will take some time to figure out.

Thanks !

On a night photo, you may need to go to medium size or medium quality to get it under 256k.

Now I need to figure out cropping... when composition isn't great.

go to edit in Iphoto. There is a crop feature there also. And an enhance button, it will let you add color fill. It is not bad, but if you want more editing control apple aperture does a very nice job.
