You can either reduce the resolution of the images you are taking, the lower resolution means much smaller file size. Alternatively you can run each image through a photo editing software, save to a different file as a reduced resolution, that way you will still have a high res version of the photo...

By reducing the resolution you are taking I mean within the camera setting itself...

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
are you familiar enough with canon to know if they have a resolution reducing process within their software -
I have not tried to any reduction before so I do not know
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I think your second option is the one I would prefer to use

Not in the camera there isn't... If you are using Zoombrowser then that may well have a resolution reduction process but again this is done on the computer and not the camera...

What Photo editing software do you have on your computer? If any? If none I can find you a free simple photo editor that will allow you to reduce the resolution...
