How can I decrease photo file size?

My pictures always turn out ENORMOUS!  I download them to my computer and when I open them all I see is the very top left corner, it's so large I can't see the whole picture on my monitor.  I scaled one down by 50% and it was still too large.

I've looked in the camera's settings and there is no option to change file size.  I've looked through the manual and there are no options.

It seems pretty ridiculous that it would default to a 3936x5248 7MB photo size.  HELP!

This is a head scratcher for sure, but we'll work on this together. If there is a way to adjust this, it would likely be in one of two places. Either within the settings of the camera itself, or when you go to save the photo or send it, it should ask the size you want to send. When you go into your camera settings, what options to do you see?

Thank you for offering to help!

When I open the camera, the options I have are:

  • HDR - auto, on, off  (it's set to Auto)
  • Flash
  • Control Focus & Exposure
  • Video - HD, SloMo, Ultra HD
  • Photo - Widescreen, Standard (I have standard selected)
  • Timer
  • Panorama
  • Location
  • Shutter Sound
  • Quick Capture

I went into the phone's Settings and there are no Camera options there.

The photo wide-screen or standard is the option to change the size of the photos. On my phone (another Moto) the standard is 13 MP and the wide-screen is 9.6 MP. Try changing to wide-screen to see if the photos are smaller.

You can also try a third party camara app from the Play Store to see that provides you with more options.

I'm most definitely NOT a VZW employee. If a post answered your question, please mark it as the answer.

What app or program are you using to view the photos?  See if yo ucan have it default to viewing the whole picture instead of defaulting to 100% - the Turbo takes photos at a higher resolution so if you want to do enlargements they are of a good quality.  You can reduce the size in a photo editing app, but I like the higher resolution, larger size files.

Go to App Store > Device Help > Photos and videos > Adjust camera settings > Adjust > Photo Size > Click camera like you are taking a photo > Swipe screen to the right > Click the box with the L in it > Photo - Widescreen or Standard

The above is what I've done with my android phone. I can only change from widescreen to standard.

There does not appear to be a photo resize option. If you figure it out, please let me know. Cindy [removed]
