TO   E-MAIL DIGITAL PHOTO'S

 

Digital Cameras have on avg. of 1280 / 848  to 2048 / 1536 Resolution,

This would be for most Mega pixel cameras. Cheaper ones are 640 / 480 or less.

Most cameras that appraisers use are of the higher resolution.

 

Printers are not up to this Resolution  at a price we can afford.

Most printers print at a resolution of 600 / 1200  to 1440 / 720  as you can see

 the quality going in to your computer is not as good coming out.

 

To E-Mail photos you need to resize them and this can be tricky

depending on what software you have. Different software resize photo's using

different terminology. some will use inches others use pixel size and some use

resolution.

 

A good rule of thumb is to choose size of 640 / 480 or aprox.

4/4 -4/3, This will avg. out to about 900KB per photo.

 

Suggestion is to take a photo and resize it on your software different ways

And E-mail to each other until you know your software and what settings

to use.

 

IF YOU PLAN TO PRINT PHOTOS OUT IN LARGE SIZE LIKE 6 / 7 INCHES OR LARGER

YOU WILL NEED A MEGA PIXEL CAMERA, COST $300 AND UP.

LESS THEN THIS WILL CAUSE YOUR PHOTOS TO BE POOR !!!!!!!. WHEN YOU TRY

TO INLARGE THEM…

 

Q: How do I send a picture over the Internet?

 

A: Sending a picture in an email message is just like attaching any other file to your email. First, the picture needs to be stored on your computer's hard drive. If it's a digital picture, or  you already have it stored on your computer that's                   good. If not, you'll need to scan it in.

 

Next, you'll need to create an email addressed to whomever you want to receive your picture. Finally, you'll want to attach the picture file to the email, just as you would attach a word document or  any other file to an email. The process for attaching a file to an email varies depending on  which email program you use. If you're using Outlook Express, the most common email client, you need to press the Paperclip Icon/Insert File from within your email message.

Outlook Express will then ask you where the image is stored. (The image will probably be easiest to find if you store it on your desktop.) Highlight the image file and choose OK. The file will be attached to your email and you can then send it, just like any other email message.

 

The recipient will view the image by double clicking on the file in the email. That will launch a browser window, and the image will appear in the browser.
