I always take my photos at maximum size, since they are best for quality and printing and can be resized larger or smaller easily. They do take a lot of room on your memory card and then on your computer, but if you plan to possibly print them, larger is better.
So, when I want to post a photo on facebook or somewhere else where file size needs to be small, I just resize them quickly with a resizer program I have and it's not a problem. (And I still have my HQ image for scrapping, printing, etc. if needed.)

If your T3i is anything like my Canons if you go to menu, choose the little camera icon you should see a list. find the image quality menu and choose that. That will take you to another menu that allows you to choose size and type of files. I think you can shoot in RAW and JPG or just one or the other. I shoot large RAW files and medium jpg. I can usually upload the medium jpg files without much hassle.
The Canon manuals that come with the camera are very technobabble. I love the "Digital Field Guide" series for particular cameras. They tell about the set up and functions on the cameras as well as how to use them. Much better than the manual that ships with the camera.
Hope that helps.
