Minolta Dimage S414 Problem with resulution

Hi, I am having a problem when downloading the photos I've taken to my computer. Whenever I download photo's. I open them in Photoshop and the dpi is 72. I have my camera set to "fine" quality and 2272x1704? I have the camera set at the highest quality unless I set it to TIFF. Why when i open the file in photoshop is it at such a low resolution? I would like for the photo to open at a resolution of 300 dpi? Is it my photoshop settings? I don't think that's it. Please let me know. Thanks, Lisa

Re: Minolta Dimage S414 Problem with resulution

What you are seeing is the difference between "pixel count resolution" and "embedded resolution". So in your example 2272*1704 is the actual pixel count resolution as recorded by the camera & 72 is the embedded resolution that tells the software (in this case photoshop) what the intended use of the picture will be. 72 ppi is the default for web pictures. You can change this in photoshop by going to the "Image" tab & select image size. The window that opens will show you the pixel dimensions i.e. pixel count resolution and the document size & resolution 72. You just change it to 300 for printing. You can change the default to 300 by going "edit", "preferences", "units & rulers" and setting the values for "new document preset resolutions". This is a complex subject, I recommend looking at the following web page:

Any brand will do, but use only old type 2GB SD cards, no SDHC types.
I would recommend Transcend, Kingston or Sandisk, etc.

Try NOT connecting your camera to your computer.

The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.

Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program.

Minolta dimage s414 camera, error no card try to use a 4 gb flashcard and then it read unable to use card.

The S414 was designed to work with SD cards. Your 4GB card is actually an SDHC card. While it will fit into the slot, it will not work. You need to stay with SD cards, 2GB and smaller.

Check your manual to see if your camera accepts a card that large.
