    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?

    The menu option to define what size image you want is there, if you look. Three sizes and three densities as I recall...

        I think it's in the camera settings. I have an 1100D gathering dust at home, I'll fire it up and double check if you can't find it

          Load onto a computer. Use software that can resize JPGs. There's plenty of free offerings, some of them online.

          I gather GIMP is quite popular.

            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.

              thanks, I've looked on my menu display and it's not immediately obvious there. I've not had time today (looking after grandchildren) to root out the manual to check.

                    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
