"D5100 e-mail attachment?"


US
          

I've just bought D5100 from Costco. I'm not computer tech guy and can not figure out how to attach pictures to e-mail. I connected D5100 to computer via USB and was able to select pictures, however error message said it's not correct file names? I re-read user guide, but it shows only how to transfer photos to computer. I really don't want to transfer my photos to my computer which is very old and does not have much storage space. Please help me.

You will need to download your photos to a folder on your computer. You will then need to resize them as (even at the lower quality camera settings) they will be too large to send easily in emails. When you open the folder on your computer and select images, there probably (?) will be an option for "email" which will resize them appropriately. Otherwise, you will have to use some type of simple software to do this, like Picasa (free).

You have a nice camera. There are a lot of things to learn in order to get the best from it.

It's possible that your images are in NEF file type instead of jpg. My own mail client won't send a nef (RAW) file type and says it's not the right file type. Could that be what you're experiencing? When you look at the list of photographs, what is the file extension of the photographs (the letters after the dot)?

If they are jpg files, they may be too large, as was previously suggested. You will need to resize them before emailing them. If they are nef files, you will need to convert them before emailing them, I believe.

Well first of all you can't store your photos on the camera indefinitely. So you do need somewhere else to store them. If your computer doesn't have much hard drive space, you can get a large USB external or jump drive and use that for storage. I'm assuming you have more than one available USB; if not, you can disconnect something temporarily or get a USB hub.

If you are shooting JPG you have options on file size. I don't know where this is on the D5100 menu but you should be able to find it in your user's manual. You can pick a smaller size if you want to email immediately.

Another option is to keep your larger file sizes and upload them to a site where you can share them. That way you won't have to email them.
