Resizing JPEG Images In The Camera

If you want to have images read to use off the memory card in a digital photo frame, on a web or social medial site, or to send in e-mail, you can resize most JPEG images directly in the camera. Whne you resize an image, the T3i/600D creates a copy of the original file, resizes it to the size you choose, and then saves  it as a new file on the memory card. The original image is left intact on the memory card so that you have a full-size image for editing and printing. You can only resize JPEG images captured as Large, Medium, S1, or S2. RAW and S3 JPEG images can't be resized.

When you resize images, the aspect ratio and pixel count are set as well. The aspect ratio refers to the relationship of the image width to height. Standard print sizes have aspect ratios that may be different from the image's aspect ratio. For example, a 4 x 6 inch has a 3:2 aspect ratio while an 8 x 10 inch print has a 5:4 aspect ratio. The resize option anables you to fit the image to the print's aspect ratio with varying amounts of cropping to make the image fit the paper size. To figure out the print size that each aspect ratio produces, multiply each number in the ratio by 2. A 3:2 aspect ratio translates to 6 x 4, or a 4 x 6 inch print.

You can resize the JPEG images as follows:

  • Large can be resized to M, S1, S2, or S3.
  • Medium can be resized to S1, S2, or, S3.
  • S1 can be resized to S2 or S3.

You can also choose the resolution (or pixel count) and the aspect ratio as show Table 1.2 when you shooting in Live View you're shooting in P, Tv, Av, M, and A-DEP  shooting modes. Aspect ratios can be set for Live View shooting on the Shooting 3 menu. Just select Aspect ratio, press the Set button, and then select the aspect ratio you want. Then when you begin shooting in Live View, nonprinting lines show the amount of the scene that will be in the final print based on the aspect ratio you chose for the 4:3, 16:9, and 1:1 aspect ratios.

NOTE: RAW images are saved at the camera's native 3:2 aspect ratio, but if you apply a ratio, it is appended to RAW file. Then when you open the image in Canon Digital Photo Professional, the image is show with chosen aspect ration.

To resize an L, M, S1, or S2 JPEG image, follow these steps:

1. On the Playback 1 menu, highlight Resize, then press the Set button.
    The image appears on the LCD with the resize icon at the upper left.

2. Press the Set button, and then select the size you want.

3. Press the Set button. The Save as new file controls appear.

4. Select OK, and then press the Set button. A message appears noting the folder in which the
image will be saved and file number.

5. Press the Set button to OK the message. The original image appears.
