I have 14.7 megapixel camera & the file sizes are too large

by ericv95 / October 5, 2009 5:50 AM PDT

Is there free software for editing? I just wan tot be able to reduce the file size so I can upload pictures to websites such as ebay or craigslist. The camera takes beautiful photos but I cant list anything on ebay unless I figure out how to reduce the file size. Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

My Canon has a picture quality setting for such cases. I could use a lower one when making a picture for eBay then when making a picture I would like to print on 20x30". This directly translates to file size.
