    Greetings to all...Just a basic question (I guess) I have a Canon IXUS 850IS and I'm loving it.

    My question is this, is the canon utilities software comes with the feature in which we can shrink the size of the picture? I tried to mess around with it, but to no avail :(

    any advice is much appreciated..Thanks in advance...

    You *should* be able to, but I'm not sure where to find that feature. If you have Microsoft Office, it comes with the Office Picture Manager, which is pretty easy to use. You can open your images with that and resize, crop, and do a couple other things.

    You might also consider downloading The Gimp or Gimpshop. A google for either should give more information

    Infranview works very well, small and light too.

    I suggest using GIMP, which is absolutely free. It is powerful, and is on the level of Adobe Photoshop, while being less intimidating in interface. GIMP is available for Windows, Mac and of course Linux.

    You can scale the image, reduce the quality, touch it up, remove unneeded colors, change the format, crop...all these will reduce the "size" of the image.

    I normally use the Resize Pictures option in Windows; right click on the photo and you get the choices shown in the attachment.

    What version of Windows are you using?

    On Windows XP when I right click a photo I don't get an option to resize.

    Perhaps it's a Vista thing. I have been running solely Linux for over a year now, so I wouldn't know. :)

    Windows XP Image Resizer -- This PowerToy enables you to resize one or many image files with a right-click.

    The tool can be downloaded from this site:
