Yes, the images are too large.
The only thing I do before I send them is set contrast if need be.
He always replies with I need high res..
Also, I cant shoot in manual because the horses are going about 30mph, and its not like shooting a car race, I need certain things like all 4 feet in the air, or stretched out, so I have to use sports mode for faster frames so I can choose which one I want to submit.
Sports mode is just a preset.
The only difference is the FPS is set to full or high speed burst. You can set that on manual, AV, TV, etc. Doesn't matter Available on all of them. Just look at your drive button and hit it a few times until you see "H" with a few frames stacked (3 I think?). You can then start controlling your camera for what you want, instead of letting it make all the decisions for you. Sports mode doesn't even exist other than a term on your camera, it's basically a preset, but you can set all those setting yourself in any basic manual or semi-auto mode so that you choose what it's doing.
You need to find out what your person is referring to when they say they need high resolution. 18MP is plenty of resolution to print a rather large poster. Let alone a little web image or magazine print size. Make sure you're actually sending the full resolution image and not a compressed version (some emails, social media, etc, compress things). Not sure how you're sharing your images. But start there. If they need more resolution at 18MP, and they're not compressed with resolution loss, then maybe it's because they're trying to crop down to a tiny portion and they're hitting the limits of what you're sending (ie, short focal length on a subject far away so occupies very few pixels). We need examples of what you're sending (uncropped) to know more; and what they're wanting out of the image specifically.
