I'm going overseas and want to be able to upload my photos at the end of every day to a safe place.


I see that images uploaded to the Canon Image Gateway are reduced in size by default. For example, an image of 4.5M that I sent was reduced to 800K.


Is there any way to keep the image's original size?




You could use a cloud-based storage service such as I think it stores all your files at their original size. You just need to purchase enough storage space to accommodate all your files.


I use both Dropbox and Google Drive -- both are free and provide a limited amount of storage space. gives you 2GB free but you can buy more.

It's 9.99/month for 1TB


Google Drive ( gives you 15GB free and you can also buy more.

It's $1.99/month for 100GB and 9.99/month for 1TB (at which point it's the same price as Dropbox).


These are both basically "disk drives in the cloud" -- you can store any file on them since they aren't just for photos.

Or you can buy several SD (or CF) cards.  Use one a day or so.  It is good to have several anyway.

EOS 1DX and 1D Mk IV and several lenses!
