This camera is just a basic camera you can't expect much for the price. Settings are basic. As far as being able to adjust the size of the photo, use a picture software program if you need to change the size. It is always best to take the best picture possible and then resize afterwards. That way one can make large prints if you get a great shot. Now down loading pictures with any camera it is always faster to pull the card and download directly to your computer. Data cables are slow and not worth the time it takes to transfer from camera to the computer. With that said this camera is what it is point and shoot grab them on the fly and that is what I needed for work and quick trips. If you are looking for a camera with multiple features then look in a higher price range don't waste your time and money with this camera.

one major flaw
I owned this camera for one week and returned it because it was so difficult to see through the viewfinder outdoors.
I then bought a Canon A1400 because it has an optical viewfinder but haven't used it yet.

Disappointed that there was no manual, why do I want to search and download it. Shouldn't this basic need to understand a camera come with it?? No adaptor, but there is a portal on the camera for one, so again , an extra charge. Very disappointed that the very basics aren't included. Too bad canon, you lost a customer.
