The Resize option lets you "down size" larger images. A 4-megapixel image can be resized
to 2-megapixels, 1-megapixel or 640x480 size. This can be used to
make smaller images for email use or by overwriting the original image you can free up
space to save more pictures.
The Trim option lets you crop an image and save it as a smaller image.
You enlarge the image just like zoomed playback mode and scroll until you have the image
centered and then save only that portion of it. The actual image size saved is
dependant on how much you enlarged the image before trimming, it is always smaller
than the original image. Trimming
