I have a 5.0 mega pixel camera. When I try and post my pics, it says the file is to big. I try to resize them in Irfanview. I put it to 640x480 and it still says its to big. How can I fix this problem?

I don't know about Irfanview, but you can lower the quality of the pic in Photoshop when you save it. Lower dpi's and size will do the trick. And you won't see the quality difference when you'll post them here.

reduce the quality when saving from pshop

edit it in paint,then save as...change it to a jpeg..they usually come out of the camera as a 24 layer bitmap

2.17 MB?? That's the size before you resized it and lowered the dpi's.

What's the size AFTER you resize it?

do a search for a software called SLOWVIEW

you can resize, mod, etc and it's FREE

Are you saving them as JPEG's?
