Just want some advice so I don't have to do as much experimenting and waste so many DVD's
I have my camera set to take Fine pictures of medium size. They come out to be about 2.5 megabyte file size. I want to cut that down so that they are about 1 meg.
I can do that by changing the settings on my camera..(that I'm still learning how to use)...
When I am done with these pics and get them on my computer, they will be changed to a slide show video in wma format at 720 x 536 pixels (which is a very slow process).
My question is, generally speaking, would I be better off to decrease the size, or decrease the quality if I had to make a choice of 1 or the other.
In other words...should I change the size from medium to small, or should I change the quality from fine to normal?...
I'm guessing that I should leave the size like it is and decrease the quality to be sure I can get the 720 x 536 screen size that I need without it being fuzzy, but I'm not sure. This is probably not enough information to be able to answer accurately, but I'm mainly just looking for reccomendations on which I should try first. It is so very slow to make the slide show movie, then burn it to dvd format, that if it works right with the first way I try, then I won't even try it the other way, so I'm hoping to increase my chances by seeing what answers I get here...
By the way, in case it matters...this is not a digital camere...it is a Nikon D60 SLR camera
