So it appears my cousinette has sent me pics of her newborn.

However it also appears that she has yet to grasp the concept of resizing the pictures produced by her 7MP point-and-shoot, therefore she sends to the whole family pictures that are 5/6MB in size. Rhaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa !

Do your family/friends display the same level of foolishness ?

Almost all of them - most of them struggle connecting the USB cable to the camera, so I'm not too suprised when I recieve stupid-sized attachments. I'm just glad I'm on broadband.

Unfortnuatly my parents does that too. And the pictures are soo big that they cant even fit in the screen. So you have to scroll up and down and from side to side to see the damn pictures. Big grin

Family - no, almost no one would know how to send an e-mail anyway... Big grin

Customers & biz partners - rhaa! Just today, I received a PDF that consisted of 1 (one) scanned b/w page with some 10 lines of text, and the doc had a size of 1,5 MB. Rhaa!

I noticed the same in the Trip Report Forum here on A.net, some people don't resize their pics and so their reports need an hour or so to load. Rhaaaa....

Thankfully, most of my relatives still shoot films, not digital Big grin . And those that occasionally make digital photos thankfully resize them.

I'm preparing a trip report actually and don't know how to resize pictures, too. (yes, that stupid, haha)

What's the best way?

Ha all that was meant as a joke, lol.

First of all you shall (...) need some kind of image-editing software. Photoshop is the best but is not free  Wink, however I believe that some image-editing freeware surely exists.

Next up is changing the picture size to 800 X 600 pixels or even 640 X 480 pixels. For a web usage you might even want to lower the compression ration of the pictures, making them lighter in size and thus faster to load.

Bear in mind that the more you compress them the lower the quality will be.

But if I post pictures through photobucket, doesn't the website resize them automatically?

That's what it says if the pics are bigger than 2MB. I however don't know at what resolution they are resized to and at what compression level.

My mom went to LAS. She struggled to get the film into my dad's Minolta Point and Shoot. No way she'd figure out either of our digital cameras.

A friend of my wife's took some digital pictures which we wanted copies of. She had them printed then the prints scanned to send to us. She still does not understand that we preferred that she simply send us the original files. Maybe she thinks if she does then she won't have them anymore.

Naah, I have competition.

A friend of mine bought a digicam a couple of months ago. We went on a weekend trip some days after, and to our surprise, his girlfriend produced several film boxes out of her handbag. Everybody bit his lip, and we sat and watched her trying to put the film into the digicam. We really tried hard, but after a mere minute, the first guy burst into laughter, and everybody joined in.

But it got even better: one of us managed to utter a few words under his laughter and said "Honey, that's a digicam!". And she seriously replied: "I'm aware of this. So where do you put the film into these?"

Seriously, one of the guys did wet his pants.

Turned out she really thought that the only difference between a digicam and a negative cam was the shiny display on the backside. Nb: this was only few months ago, this girl is 30 years of age, and she's a highschool teacher...

I'm not that surprised she didn't know the difference between a digital and film camera.

In one of my previous jobs I was frequently asked the difference between them... it seems to me a good percentage of Joe Public don't know.
