Go to the gallery. I can get there but all my photos are too large for the file size limit. I need to find me a Gen Y'er to explain to me that there newfangled digital technology and help me shrink the file size.

Click on Showroom (http://www.tmcowners.com/photopost/showgallery.php?cat=501) in the upper right (red area), then select "Upload Photos"

And how do you guys get such small file size, but such good res? Are those all low res shots? The pics my wife takes are all like 1.5mb.

Exactly how you do it will depend on what photo editing software you're using, but generally, you want to first change the resolution of your image to 72 pixels per inch, then select the image size of about 6-8 inches (wide), then select JPEG compression. If you use medium compression you'll get an image that's about 150-200 kilobytes.

The reason your wife's file size is so big is that those images are at the camera's jpeg resolution, probably somewhere between 180-300 pixels per inch. That resolution is wasted on a computer monitor which really can't use anything better than 72 ppi.

For monitor viewing, you want 72 dpi.

For print, you want 300 dpi.

Use a photo editor (like Adobe Photoshop) and change image size to 800 pixels wide. Then you should be fine as far as file sizes go.
