      I download my pics onto Windows Photo gallery, is that what you mean.

      What dictates the number of MB's , is it the colours, i.e. light or dark overall, bigger variation of colours, or is it the actual picture size which I doubt cos all mine are the same measurements. Does the fact that you edit them in various ways effect it. I am at a loss.

          Large pictures have no use on the web as screens only have so many pixels.

          800x600 pixels used to be the norm for full screen images which would be around the 40kb mark.

          Larger images are only for print or to store them for print.

          Hope that helps

              Yopu8 need to change the resolution. That means how many pixels there are per inch or centimeter. A digital image is made up of lots of little squares (pixels) and the more you have per inch then the more megabytes the image will be. If you download Paint.net I'll guide you through how to do it. It isn't complicated honest.

                It depends why you want to resize them, but if they are saved as bitmaps you could "save as" them as jpgs?

                  Another strange phenomena is that when I download pics from camera to Windows Photo Gallery and do not crop them at all I can pick them up from the album here and from flickr but if I change their characteristics at all I can't. It is as if they are not there but when I go in normally, i.e. not from internet, there they are large as life. Now why is this happening. I am obviously missing something.

                    When you upload photos from your camera to computer they are in JPG format. If you work on the photo using a photo package like 'Photoshop' or others they tend to save it in their own format ie; Photoshop PSP, or Photoplus - SPP. Unless you choose to save in another format. Then when you look around a directory using the photo program it looks for it's own format, unless you select 'all files' in the viewing box, as such you may only see a few of the files in said directory. When using Windows Explorer it always shows all files in a directory no matter what file extension they have.

                    Always better to work on your pics using your photo program format, then when satisfied save a copy in a web format such as GIF, JPG, or PNG. Also remember to save the original copy in the photo program format.

                    Sorry for going on a bit, managed to even confuse myself at times. Not known for being able to explain things to folks easily. Hope this may help a bit though.

                      Thankyou Tam. I think I know what you mean but haven't noticed a save option, I will go back in and have another look.
