Resizing images for web-based email using Olympus Master

If you are using a web-based email service, emailing your photos can be as simple as attaching a file. When emailing a file, however, be aware of file size. Larger files will take longer to send and receive.

In Olympus Master 1, you can resize your photo using the "Convert Format" function located under the "File" menu. In the first box under "Specify Size," type in 640 for a larger image or 480 for a smaller image. Click "convert" and you will be prompted for the location you would like to save the converted file. You may want to save it to your desktop for easy access from your web-based email program.

Note: The original image will not be affected; this only makes a copy of the image in the new size.

Choose from the examples below to see the actual size of the image based on the selection.

Once your file is resized, you can attach it to your email or send it to a Web-based photo album.
