Reducing file size of photos

edited October 2013 Posted in » Nikon D3100 Forum
I have a D3100 and I need to take photos to upload to a website that has a 1MB per file maximum. Is there a way to adjust the settings on the camera so the photos will be under 1MB?

    There is, but the usual way is to use a photo editing program like Photoshop or Adobe elements to resize your pictures. Many photo editors have a specific function for preparing your photos for the web. If you reduce your pictures in camera, you will still need to resize them and you will be starting off with a picture with less resolution so any further resizing would reduce the resolution more.
    Hope this helps.

    Set to smaller JPEG for smallest files, then in editing software you can import them to wherever, even smaller if you want. Each time you compress and image, especially a Jpeg, you lose quality.
