peepul, pleeeeeeze...

If you're going to take pics with your
digital camera and email them to other

Geez. Go to the menu in your camera and
choose a smaller size. Much smaller.
(I don't know if this applies to cameras in phones.)

I got an email with photos attached that made
the file size 11,000kb-thingies. Holy crap. It took
almost an hour to download. OK, I have an old
computer and a slowwww 'net connection but still!

The email after that is sitting at 15,000kb-thingies.
And, after waiting for the first one to finish, there
was an error message that the file is corrupt so no
pics were transmitted anyway.

I did the same thing until Berry very patiently 'splaind
to me what to do. Plus, the camera software has options
to save the pics at 100%, 75%, 50% and 25%.

Save the planet, save space, downsize.

p.s. Change your clocks. Daylight Savings Time ends today.

You're welcome.

I am totally guilty of doing that.

Erica, I can see pros needing to have bigger pics for business.
Sharper prints and all that.
You are forgiven.

Wonder what the job pays?

Yeah, and I just "love" it when the wretched thing finally downloads and I don't like it anyway.

Jean said...

Berry, I'd probably be the cheapest PSA-er ever.

Oh, JCN, I hear ya!
