Need Help Making Pics "less Grainy"

The photos I've submitted took up too much memory or/and were "too grainy". How do I make it less grainy?

I have an Olympus FE-210. I set the camera to web/email quality. Do you think this will lessen the size of my pic and make it less grainy?

Get "Neat Image"- it works a treat! Just type it into a search engine to find it - it's free to download.

Quoting StarAlliance38 (Thread starter):
I set the camera to web/email quality

Firstly, I would set the camera to the highest quality setting it has to capture as much detail as possible with minimal jpeg compression. As for grain / noise, you are at the mercy of the sensor. I doubt you'll be able to choose the ISO of the camera so try and take photo's in bright conditions which should set a low ISO, eg 100 or 200 and keep grain / noise to a minimum. After that, Neat Image used appropriately (minimally!) as OPSO1 suggests can be helpful.

In addition to what the others have qaid: When you are sharpening, sharpen the aircraft only, not the whole photo.

And learn Neatimage or whatever you get. It can turn images into shockers if not used properly.

As they have said, use Neat Image sparingly. If you aren't careful with it - you'll wipe out any detail on the fuselage as well. It mistakes those for noise.

Another thing is to only sharpen what needs to be sharpened. Avoid sharpening blank areas of the fuselage and giving them a noisy/grainy look.
