Re: easy question!

When your camera is in picture mode, press func. set, then go down to where you will see either the letter S that is in a little hill type icon, or a white hill icon, or a white staricase looking icon. 1 setting is super fine, the other is fine, and the other is normal. If you choose normal, it will give you more memory to store and your pictures won't be as good as if they were in superfine mode, which takes more space.

Set your camera to take pictures at the maximum megapixel level. Later, if you need to lower the resolution of your pics for whatever purpose, you can do that in any photo-editing program.

I have canon power shot A3000 IS and i have a problem as i want to change pixels of this camera as i shot 3MB pics every time and due to this my card memory is full so how can i change pixels?

Press the FUNC/SET button. Use the up/down arrows to select the image size setting (marked with an icon sort of like a mountain sloping down to the left). You can change to Medium 1 (3264x2448), Medium 2 (2592x1944), Medium 3 (1600x1200), and Small (640x480). The Large setting is 4000x3000.

If I understand you correctly, you want to get the most pics on a card possible. You can do that by going into the menu and choosing the lowest quality setting and lowest number of pixels. The problem is, if you later decide to print the pics or if you find a really great shot that you want to enlarge to 8x10, the low-quality pics will look terrible. If this is truly a once in a lifetime trip, get more or larger cards, set your camera to get the highest quality pics possible and enjoy yourself in the knowledge that you've got the best pics possible.

My camera and memory card aren't holding very many pics

need more info but usually ir means the memory is full . or the memory card is corrupt. i suggest saving all the pics to your computer then try reformatting the memory card. you can usually do this from the camera itself. you will have to go thru the cameras menu and pick delete all pics and format card.
also check what pixel setting you are using. the higer the pixel setting the lass pics the memory will hold.
however lowering the pixel rating also reduce the quality of the pictures. hope this helps .

Messed up CD400 resolution

Hi Molly, The 72 ppi figure is merely an arbitrary starting point used by most image editing software. I've known others to use 300 as a default, e.g. Paint Shop Pro last time I looked at it. Why it should have changed I can't tell at this point, unless you've changed your software; but it's not important. The figure is meaningless until you want to *print* your images, and even then it's best to just set print size *without* resampling the image, and let the resolution look after itself until you have a need for very large prints. To see what your camera is capturing, the essential figure you need to be interested in is the images' *pixel dimensions*; and in the case of the CD400 they should be 2272 x 1704 at the camera's full res. setting. (Actually, "resolution" is an unfortunate term, in its popular usage. Resolution really describes how thinly or densely the same pixel count is mapped over the intended physical output size.) Changing the print size *without* resampling the image will cause the resolution figure (72, 300 or whatever else it might be) to change inversely with the print dimensions, but will not change the overall pixel dimensions of 2272 x 1704.
