Question About Cropping on Picasa

doterooFebruary 12, 2009

My camera is a Canon S3 IS and I use Picasa for editing photos for my blog. Recently I took some bird pictures in the sports mode to get the wing action. When I cropped the pictures to bring them in closer the size of the pictures went small. I don't know any other way to describe this and I don't understand why it's happening since it doesn't happen to other pictures I crop. I hope this makes sense. Does anyone know why this would happen?

When you send the pics from Picasa to your Picasa Web album, there is an option to resize.

Yes but then the pictures are fuzzy. With all other pictures you can crop before exporting. You crop and the photo will remain almost the same size and fill up the picasa screen. When I crop one taken in sports mode it imediately goes to a real small picture.

Of course for cropping you need a large image size to start with. Is the camera set to the highest resolution in your sport mode?.

I don't have the slightest idea. I've never learned how to do anything but point and shoot.

I think that did it. I'll try it on some birds tomorrow. Thanks very much!
