    Love my new Canon camera. Many of you recall the one I finally got after much deliberation and some of your wonderful insight so I could have a good camera for my Alaska trip.
    Well--anyway--- I find that to upload to this sight or other similar sight, it says it is too large. I think its the "pixels" . So if I do want to get this site a pic. I have to rely on my old camera (still adequate)
    So the question is--is there something I can do to my new camera so I can change the size to upload to this site. Part of me does not want to mess with the camera too much. But as long as I can put it back, I am ok. thanks.

      There should be somewhere within the camera where it allows you to adjust the size of the pictures. Have a look through it's lists, there could be something under 'Tools' or possibly 'Images'.

      Other than that, if you keep your pictures on your computer you should be able to right click on each picture and that will bring up a list. Look for edit, click on it and that should take you to a picture adjustment area. Be aware though that reducing the size here doesn't always mean you can make it larger again, so sometimes it's best to produce a copy of the picture and alter that. You need to reduce it to 800 x 600, or close to it for this site. :)

        You can resize in Windows Photo Gallery.
