    Hi all - my camera is currently set to take pictures at a pretty high resolution and the images are around 8 MB each (approx 3200 by 2400 pixels). It seems like this is a huge waste of space when 99.9% of them are just viewed on a laptop or ipad and we make a few snapfish books a year. If I dropped it to half of that it would seem the picture would be the same on the ipad or printed page as long as it is 5 by 7 or below.

    I am no expert at this stuff - I am looking for advice if I am correct on this thinking or not.

    Thanks!

    David,

    I assume you are talking about a DSLR camera, Nikon, Canon etc. 8 Mb is completely unnecessary for viewing on laptops, iPad etc.

    Please check your computer for settings. Even the very low resolution will give you excellent definition. For good resolution for laptops etc., 5 megapixels is more than sufficient. Large files like your present settings are producing are really only for professionals who need to make very large prints like 20" x 16" and more.

    I repeat, the best thing is to read the setting section of the camera manual or ask in your local camera shop
