picture size when emailing
I must assume you are e-mailing the TIFF file. Try first converting to JPG (JPEG). A compression of 1/10 will provide a more than adequate picture. Alternatively, an uncompressed TIFF file can be "zipped". Also, when e-mailing a picture, some people copy and paste the actual picture into the e-mail (the photo can actually be seen). This forces the e-mail program to store the data MS-Word style, with the bitmap bits (pixels) stored as characters.

Anyhow, always send picture files as attachments. That way, no conversion is made by the e-mail program. Mike..

It's also a good idea to use a photo editor to resize the picture to a size reasonable for on screen viewing, especially if you don't need to use it for a print, 800 x 600, etc. Also a fair amount of compression can be used on the smaller picture with little impact on on screen viewing...

It is really interesting to hear what folks say about how to email photos. Of course I don't have your camera. I have a canon g1. I use images on websites that seem to like less then 100 mb. When I email, I save them to my desk top in jpg and one of the measurements will be 300 pixels (I think) oh well, we all learn so much here.

Hope your photos get shared...

I have a Minolta Dimage Z1 that I purchased 3 weeks ago to take photos of my jewelry for a auction site. I believe I have tried every setting but my pictures still are not coming out right. At times it's to dark or to light, or not clear enough (focus) to get the details, yes I use the macro function for close ups. I just can not get the correct settings for the camera to be able to take the pictures that I need. I have searched the web, endlessly and even called Minolta and still nothing is working for me. Can anyone possibly help me.

Iam about to lose my sanity..

I think these programs can solve most of your problems "maybe"? All but Arcsoft are free which I use arcsofts AcDsee for most imaging storing and some correctionsA lot of people like infanview.Check out the links below. one is not free ,but they have trial downloads.

I'd suggest checking the menu bar at the top of the page "Getting Started" and then on the page that brings up, there is a menu bar on the left with some tutorials - try "Photo Lessons." While they are set up around different cameras and some added gear, they may give you some ideas on how to start approaching the lighting issues. Also, I don't know if you are using a tripod and/or product stand/stage of some sort, but that may help with getting focus and distances under control...

If you are running XP,just right click on the photo,find photo resize in dropdown menu and pick a size and it should resize photo for you !!..

I heartily recommend Photo Explorer from It's a great browser for your images and also will compress/reduce any image for easy emailing. Personally, I use about 320x480 for a photo email size unless it really needs to be 800x600. I *never* send an email attachment out bigger than 70K...

Instead of using an image editor, split your image!.

Use 1toX for example, it will split the image, add a very small header at the top of the first one (8KB) to allow an automatic unslitting then it will create your emails. (
