Windows 7: Sending large Pictures and Videos

Sending large Pictures and Videos

I tried to use Picasa 3 but what a complacated mess. They give you 1 gig of space on the Internet and you can upload so your friends can see without sending huge files through the Internet. Do I just need to learn this or is there something more simple?

Images view ok at 72 pixels per inch. Resize for web/monitor viewing.

Do you mean you need help in uploading your files to a host then making them available to your friends?

What affects how quickly you fill up your 1GB of allocated space is the size of the file. Larger uploads clearly take longer. Your friends might not like downloading your larger files for the same reason. Even little point and shoot digital cameras can give you BIG files.

Most photo editors will have a resize. So as I said find where the function is in the editor and resize to 72 ppi (pixels per inch) and tick the maintain aspect ratio box (or some similar wording) so your pictures keep proportion. Also you may be asked for a "Jpeg quality". Highest gives you larger files. So experiment - a lower setting should be fine.
Occasionally, when you want friends to be able to make a good print 200ppi is good, 300ppi is excellent).

(For printing you may see dots per inch (dpi), just think of it as the same as ppi)

if a bunch I will upload them to my flickr pro and send them the link.

Or a link to Facebook, or if a video to vimeo.

A poorly formed question, at best.

Yes, you just need to learn it. Yes, there is something more simpler.

For large(r) videos, recode into a more compact format or resolution. Same for the photos.

For photos, IrfanView is useful for this purpose. For video, Movie Maker is appropriate.

For pictures use Photobucket. For videos I prefer Vimeo over YouTube.
