Hi Judy,

Just email the pics to yourself and keep them on the server of your
email program, then delete them from your ipad. I assume you are
already doing something like that.

When I download the photo off the camera to my computer (lets use the top
one for example) it is 5,220 kb, which is huge. I used my photo editor to
straighten the photo a bit, that changed the photo to 2,036 kb, half the size of the original. I don't know why it did that but it helped on the file size with no apparent
loss in clarity (although there must have been some).

One question (which I don't have time to research at the moment) is...Does the
camera always gather enough data to make the largest size photo and then
use its own algorithm to resize it if you shoot a smaller size, or does the
camera use some other method when not shooting full size?

The more you know the more you know you don't know you know.
