Default Uploading photo help needed

Now that I finally have a good camera and a Mac, I tried to upload a photo to the gallery. It told me that the file size was too big. I looked in iphoto to see if there was something I could do, but found nothing relevant. I know when I email a photo it gives me an option to send it as small, medium, or large but nothing similar popped up when I tried to upload. I'm pretty much an idiot when it comes to the camera--do I need to reduce the resolution somehow when I take the picture? Can anyone give me any advice?
Thanks,
Karen

Your camera should give you the option of selecting the file size. If you are going to put the pictures on the net and not use the file to print large pictures (EG) 8 X 10 protraits, use the small size setting on your camera. This reduces the size of the file making it much easier to load on the computer for display or email.

Thanks so much. That'll teach me to read the book that comes with the camera. I retook a bunch of pictures, uploaded them, and now I have a gallery!!!

I like to keep a copy of my cards in a file on my compute. So if I want to upload something for SCS I first make a copy of the picture. (select, copy) then paste it in the same folder. Now open your photo editing software and it will give you the option to 'compress' picture. I do that then it easily uploads to SCS.

When I need to upload too large a photo, I use PixResizer. It's a free download and works very well. Another site that I go to has an 80kb limit, and with the 50d being 15.1mbs, I already need to resize. This program is super simple to use.

Hi, Karen -- Lydia (Understandblue) started a thread about SCS upload limits here: http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/fo...m-t495283.html

She links to this page that explains how to resize in iPhoto: How to Resize Images in iPhoto | eHow.com. Just another option for you.

Thanks everyone! I was able to resize the images right on my camera. I was taking pictures using the largest setting. Now my pictures upload easily and I've actually started a tiny gallery. (I have another problem with the camera, too, but I'll start a new thread for that!)

You guys could always do what I do......Dh bought me my first digital camera in 2005. It was a refurbished Olympus with a whopping 3.2 MP........and a 30x optical zoom...I took some awesome photos with it. When I received bigger digital cameras, the Olympus became my "baby digital" and it lives in my craft cave....where it only takes photos of cards, projects and camera parts that I need to illustrate powerpoints for the photography classes I teach....No worries about resizing.....the 3.2 uploads in a flash...LOL!...but I could also do it with my other cameras if I wanted to ..but why mess with what is working....
and I have absolutely no idea about uploading with a MAC but photographer friends tell me it is easy....
