    Default how the hell?

    Took a couple pics of my Polk S10's and SVS sub. Tried to attach the pic and file is too large. Any pointers out there?

    Photoshop. MS Picture It!, and other programs have options to "save as web ready" picture. Reduces pixels so they'll be accepted.

    every digital camera has setting for taking smaller pictures.. ie: smaller file size. go into the settings of the camera and reduce the size of pic it takes. that way you'll get more pictures on your removable media and hence take up less space on your hard drive. it's all pretty easy to do. or you can get one of the many photo programs and do what Tour said to do.. but that involves another program and another step.

    Default Methods, data

    Resizing will also reduce file size. Resize first, then crop-out unnecessary parts. Black & white or pics with 256 colors or less can be converted to GIF to lower file size as well. Here's the compression amounts in order (least to most):

    TIFF (lowest compression, best quality)
    BMP
    JPG (compression/quality level selectable in most graphics programs)
    GIF (highest compression, worst quality, grayscale & 256 colors or less looks good)

    There are other extensions/types, but these are most common.
