Tanjor Trailer (pic)

My first digital photo, wrested from the new camera through the
new notebook (bought for the USB port) to the web, of my Doberman
Annie in her Tanjor Trailer

http://home.att.net/~rhhardin/trailer.jpg

Only took about five hours of mostly pointless work to get the picture
to the web from the camera. Now I need to know what software can
reduce the physical size (900kb, and full browser window) to something
reasonable, say 60kb and a modest corner of the browser window.

None of the stuff on the machine seems to do that, as far as I can
see.

I post it because I think it's cute, and because the Tanjor trailer
is great, though no longer made, I guess.

Nothing shipped with windows will do that. Did anything come with your
camera? I use photoshop but it's complex and expensive. I once bought
a scanner that come with some great (and simple) photo editing software,
so if you know someone that has a scanner that died are is no longer in
use they might have something for you.

Or get a mac....

P.S. The trailer looks cool.

I am a die-hard Mac and iPhoto fan (typing this on an iBook G4), but
Picasa, the freely downloadable photo organizer from Google, is really
good, and should do exactly what Ron wants.

You want GIMP for Windows. Free and very powerful.

Cute dog -- massive chest or just a funny angle?

I just posted a couple of pics from a mtb ride Saturday, and ran into the
same "size" issue. When I /e-mailed/ the photos, Windows asked me if I
wanted to reduce 'em first (I assume for easier transmittal or whatever).
However, when I /uploaded/ the pics to my site, they were the huge, hi-res
versions.

A friend wrote me that I can use PAINT to re-size the photos (Start,
Accessories, Paint -- then work on image), but I haven't tried it yet. (Be
sure to name the smaller sized photo something different, so you don't lose
the big one.)

Ruff-ruff, BS

I think it's called a deep chest; apparently favored in Dobermans. My first
Dobie Susie didn't have such a big one.

I vote for a photo-shop composite.

Two people have said that now. Not true. Real dog, real trailer,
real dog in trailer, real pic of same.

It's been thru dell photo suite, which came on the new notebook, and is
cropped down from 2.1mb, with an enormous amount of confusion and
effort.

The trailer has a plywood floor installed on the frame tubes that
support the bottom of the fabric (above the white plastic line),
that the bottom of the dog is on (Annie doesn't like standing on
the plastic curved floor, and ascends to stand on the frame tubing,
which stresses the fabric, so I put in the 1/4" plywood floor.)

Otherwise I don't know what looks photo-shoppish about it, other than
all digital photos are digital and so have pixel effects.

Perhaps I'll make a mpg of Annie hopping into the trailer for you,
when I figure that out.

Oh I see, you're suggesting using photoshop CS2, not saying it's
a photoshopped pic. Sorry.

I just downloaded ifranview, which seems to work cleanly on a couple
of examples, and discarded the dell junk. That may do the trick.

If you're using Windows XP, here's a tip for you:

Locate the image file on your hard drive.

Right click it, select "Send to..."

Select "Mail Recipient..."

A dialog will pop up asking if you want to keep original size or scale down.

There's a way to show more details - do that and select whichever size you
like. (640x480, 800x600 or 1024x768)

Your email program will open with the newly scaled file as an attachment.
Drag and drop it to your desktop.

Voila.

(I use Photoshop CS but it takes a comparitively long time to open and scale
versus this quick method)

BTW: that IS a huge version you have onine! It runs off my screen at
1680x1050... :eek:

Cute picture BTW!

Chris
