Hi,

I have a Sony Ericcson K750i, and would like to send pictures from my computer to my phone. I can do that just fine, but the pictures are then a horrible quality (strong pixellation).
I guess this is because too many pixels are taken out. If I try using paint (the only image editing program I have) to make the images smaller, I get the same problem. However, the thumbnails of the original (large) image look just fine. And they're tiny!
All the images I send to my phone from the internet are just fine too. So why are my pictures so bad when I send them to my phone? There must be some way of making the images smaller, and retaining the quality. I would know how to do it on Photoshop, but I don't have that program here.
The pictures are from a Kodak 500 megapixel camera.
Does anyone have any suggestions, as to how I can get my pictures on my phone in good quality?

I managed to find a way to do it myself. All I needed to do was to resize the image on my computer (I downloaded Picasa, and that does it just fine). After that I can send it to my phone, and it is at least acceptable. The problem was how the mobile resized the image. I'm happy to have solved that problem!

There are any number of free photo editing programs.... picassa is just one, and has limited features. You might try, irfanview or gimp
http://www.irfanview.com/
http://gimp-win.sourceforge.net/stable.html

Irfanview is probably easier to use and gimp porbably more in line with photoshop type programs (thus little harder to get hang of it). Will be a learning curve whichever one you might try. Irregardless, the image size will need to be saved in the native format used by the phone to view correctly (not streched or shrunk,etc). If not sure what that might be,
try sending one of the pix's from the camera to the phone, then view it in the editing program to get the image info for it.... then when you convert the ones you are sending to the phone, use the same image sizes.

for irfanview, with image loaded, press the "i" key... not sure from gimp.
