    You've got two options, the file out of the camera can be reduced thus lowering the quality of the image, or you can alter it with some post processing software (GIMP is free), I would always suggest the latter even if it is a bit more of a faff as you can always keep the original (I'd recommend RAW which will be about a 12mb file) and then tinker later.

    If the file is purely for the web have a look at the newer file format webp from Google gaining appreciation

    On your menu display will be a little icon like three bars in a quarter circle. That's the image quality option. Don't know if the 1000D does touch screen, but on my 650D you just click on it

    ok, thanks, I'll research this offering.

    Yes, that works as well, and it's what I do to pass on photos that are otherwise too big.

    It all depends what eventual limage quality is required. If I'm photoing a Sea Eagle at 300 yards with a long lens, I'll have the camera take the biggest densest picture it can so I can blow up the bits I want and still have decent quality. Normally I use medium size and high density, which seems to work well.

    Incidentlaly my current Canon, its two predecessors and the mickey little ShureShot we still use on occasion all have hte same setting option. I'm sure the 1000D will as well.

    started a topic Canon 1000D

    How can I reduce the size of the JPG files it creates, either before or after the photo is taken? Some sites won't accept images greater than 3mb and the Canon creates files of 4mb on average.

    edit
    I can see there are a number of products available, but what is the simplest way?
