Thank you for this great tip!
I tried to do this with my digital camera but I can't find how to do it. Our digital camera is about 5 years old though....very out of date. The menu is very simple.....not many options. I have it set to the lowest quality for uploading cards. The resolution is still at 96dpi though. I am not really sure how to change this. I crop my pics, they are under the 640x480 pixels, and do all the other suggestions. I am lost about lowering to the 72 dpi though. Any suggestions? Thanks.
