Re: Bought a XR6

Will post my pics tomorrow as all my photos are too large in size (over 300kb and 1600 x 1200). Anyone know how to easily shrink the files? so I do not have to take more shots?

Re: Bought a XR6

Shrink the photos in paint (assuming you are using windows).

just load the pic in paint, then use the Stretch/skew option (under Tools? menu) - set both height and width to 50%. Then save as a different filename. Should bring the shots down to under 100k.

Oh, Congrats on the purchase.

Re: Bought a XR6

Very nice Navy Blue! Despite some opinions on this colour, I like what I see! Its the green equivalent of Blueprint in my opinion. In sunlight, its really grassy and bright, but goes more dark and metallic in the shade. Really good! I have an envi ute ordered and can't wait.

Using a Canon A70, great camrea, only 3 megapixel but quality is fantastic. Had it for about 16 months, paid $650 for it, but way under $500 now.
