Question about Canon PowerShot A530 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Sizes and their corresponding resolutions

I went to the store to get an 8x10 photo printed but it came out all blurry because I guess it was at a lower resolution setting than it should have been for an 8x10 photo What resolution should I select to get the clearest 8x10 photo? 4x6?

Personally I would select the highest setting offered. In my case, there are 3, good, best & bestus, or maybe its better. That should give you better results. All blurry can mean other things too, like shooting indoors, at night or similar low light situation. And what happens is: camera select a slow shutter speed in order to give you the right exposure or amount of light. And if its using a slower shutter speed - you have to hold the camera steady, otherwise you'll get blurry shots. which I shoot in low light, I'll find something to lean on or some way to brace myself so that I (hopefully) won't get the "blurs" And using the lcd display (instead of viewfinder) may contribute to the blurs as you generally hold the camera out to arms length to view & shoot which makes it difficult or impossible to hold the camera still/steady in that stance.

How do I change the resolution on a Samsung SL605 camera?


You're looking at the dots per inch (DPI) setting. The DPI is an output specification, used when outputting the photo (either on paper or a computer screen) and is irrelevant as far as the camera is concerned. The camera fills in a value simply because it can't leave it blank.

You can take the same photo and print it out as a 4x6 and as a 8x10 and you'll get different DPI settings because the photo is covering more inches in the second case than in the first. For example, if you have a picture that's 3000 pixels in the long dimension, you'll be printing it as 500 DPI in the first case and 300 DPI in the second.

Can i change the compression and ratio on my canon powershot a570 is to shoot in 300 dpi?


Not really, since "300 dpi" is a print resolution specification. The camera takes pictures at whatever resolution you have set (0.3MP to 7.1MP on the A570).

If you print a 0.3MP photo at 300dpi, you'll get a picture 1.6 inches by 2.1 inches (smaller than a business card). If you print a 7.1MP photo at 300dpi, you'll get a picture about 8 inches by 10 inches. You can also get an 8x10 from the 0.3MP if you print at 60dpi, but the result will be rather grainy.

Again, "300 dpi" has no meaning to the camera.

Only 4x6 tray prints clearly


For this concern try pressing "copy+cancel" for media calibration then try again, make sure you have an A4 paper loaded. If this doesnt help you out try using the Kodak website www.kodak.com/go/itg and use "image quality" for class.

I purchased a C6280 all-in-one printer on 7-2-08.  Iwould like to know how do I print 5x7 and 8x10 photoson an 8x10 photo paper.  I can not find out how to do it looking through the manual. ...


We neeed to manually set the size of the paper in order to print on abaove paper sizes.

Open the HP Solution Center and click on settings >> print settings >> printer settings.

Now select the paper type as plain paper and click OK.

Now click on custom settings and enter the size of the paper and give it a name and click OK.

Now close the solution center and reopen it again.

Now click on settings >> print settings >> printer settings.

Now check whether we have the name that we gave to the custom size previously. Select it and then click OK and then try to print.

Sizing the photo


Unfortunately, the P400 seems to have its own set of sizes. The printer will give a print close to the size selected. (This is really noticeable with the perferated psper.) The situation is no different with the P440.
