Re: New member needs help

My thanks to all who have posted. Update: I bought a refurb 80D and 18-55 lens from Canon. I received Ruggard Outrigger 45 from B&H today. I have downloaded Canon EOS Utility and DPP. I have images on my computer that I would like to email. How can I reduce the file size for email? I tried the Canon help desk. The lady was not willing to help me.

You can use the Batch Utility [under the File menu in DPP to specify and output file size, aspect ratio, or resolution.

In DPP choose Convert and Save under file menu. Select HPEG file type and you can choise image size. You can download a manual for DPP from Canon site. There are also tutorials at Canon Digital Learning Center website.

Never used that selection before.  Learn something every day.

Basically the same, but Batch can do multiple files as well as sending files to an external program. Our postings crossed in the cloud.

Re: New member needs help

Thanks for the help. I now have an 80D with an EF-S 18-55 IS, several cards, a card viewer, a Ruggard Outrigger 45 and a MyFoto Globetrotter in carbon fiber, The next purchase will be a 100-400 ll USM and filters for both lenses. Starting to think about a printer and appropriate paper. What should I get?

Many of us have the Canon Pixma Pro-100.  It is a great printer, and Canon frequently bundles it with cameras and lenses.

 

What should you get?  You should get busy using your gear, and learning how to use that camera. 

 

BTW, how do you like that backpack?  It should be plenty large enough to hold the 80D with the 100-400mm still attached.

Right now Canon is having a free paper with ink sale. The Pro-100 is a great printer. Go to the Canon eStore, buy a set of ink cartridges and get a bunch of free paper.

The advantage of Convert & Save over Batch Process is that C&S allows you to overwrite an existing JPEG file of the same name, while BP doesn't.

 

BP also has the very annoying property of not allowing you to set the width or height for all files being converted. The width you set for the first file becomes the long dimension for all subsequent files. It would be nice to have "long dimension" as an option, but it's not always what you want.

I have since gone into DPP 4.6.10.0 to experiment with that option.  It doesn't exist in my installation.
