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

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: http://www.fotofinish.com/resources/centers/photo/resolution.htm

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.

I need to take pictures with my coolpix that are no less than 1600 x 1200 pixels and 18 dpi. Since I've lost my manual, how to I make sure of these settings. Thank you


With a 5 megapixel sensor this camera should be well above your requirements.
However, to be sure, take a few photos of different scenes and download them to your computer.
Most programs, such as Photoshop Elements ets will enable you to access the parameters you want. But, even Microsoft Office Picture Manager will tell you your pixel dimensions. Open the image filein MOPC, right click then click on Properties (if it is not already showing on the right of scree. You will find your pixel dimensions and file size and further down the vertical and horozontal dpi.

Why does the FinePix E510 pictures download from the camera at 72 dpi when the camera was set to take 500 megapixel photos? I cannot find any way to adjust this in the finepix manual or in online help. I...


A couple of things - I don't think you mean 500 megapixels (that is a lot!) but I assume you mean you expected a high resolution image. You may have it! The dpi setting is largely irrelevant (for photographers) as it simply relates number of pixels to a (notional) print size. Thus an image that is 3000 pixels wide (say) would print out to 10 inches at 300 dpi (3000/300) or 40 inches (approx) at 72 dpi (3000/72). the image has the same information /resolution - it's just "spread" further on the larger print. You can easily change the nominal dpi in e.g. Photshop Elements but it won't affect your image quality.
If however you are getting low resolution images when setting the camera differently that's something different. I would need extra info to help there but pssibly check if the camera was set to RAW and maybe you were looking at the (small) JPEG usually saved with it?

I have the following message and I understand the problem may be with Adobe Photoshop Elements 6 The appplication has failed to start because connAPI.DLL was not found. Re-install may fix the problem


Hi there.

Do one of the following solutions: Solution 1: Remove the NOKIAManager.mox file.

  1. Exit Photoshop Elements.
  2. Open the C:\Program Files\Adobe\Photoshop Elements 6.0\moxplugins folder.
  3. Move the NOKIAManager.mox file to the Recycle Bin, or another location such as your desktop.
  4. Restart your computer.
Note: The NOKIAManager.mox plug-in file is required for Adobe Photo Downloader to download photos from a Nokia mobile phone. If you use a Nokia mobile phone, use Solution 2. If you later decide to use a Nokia mobile phone, either move the NOKIAManager.mox file back to the original location or reinstall Photoshop Elements.
Solution 2: Install or reinstall the Nokia PC Suite software.

Note: Only use this solution if you connect a Nokia mobile phone to your computer.

In order to communicate with a Nokia mobile phone, your computer must have the Nokia PC Suite software installed. Install the software to allow Adobe Photo Downloader to communicate with the phone and download photos from it. If you have previously installed Nokia PC Suite but are still getting this error message, uninstall and reinstall the software or upgrade to a newer version. For more information about Nokia PC Suite, contact Nokia or visit the Nokia web site.

Solution 3: Disable Adobe Photo Downloader.

  1. Open the Organizer in Photoshop Elements.
  2. Choose Edit > Preferences > Camera or Card Reader.
  3. Disable the Auto Launch Adobe Photo Downloader On Device Connect option.
  4. Click OK.
Note: This solution will prevent Adobe Photo Downloader from starting when Windows starts, and it will not appear automatically when you plug in a camera, card reader, flash memory drive, or other memory device. When you plug in one of these devices, and in order to download photos into the Organizer, you will need to start Photoshop Elements and choose File > Get Photos or Videos > From Camera or Card Reader.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!

Photos taken with canon 5d with both raw & jpeg formats. When I open Adobe bridge the photos are displayed as _mg_0133.cr2 and _mg_0133.jpeg. The jpegs can be viewed and opened, but I can't open the cr2...


If you have the 5D Mark II (the latest version,) the raw converter in Photoshop CS3 does not support the format. If you have the earlier version of lthe 5D, download the latest raw converter update from Adobe (free}

If you have the Mark II you can do one of three things to continue using Photoshop:

1. Upgrade to CS4. The latest update for it's raw converter supports the 5D Mark II.

2. Download the Adobe DNG Converter when 5.2 version becomes available and convert your cr2 files to the DNG format which CS3 can read. In the past this has been available as a free download form Adobe, but it's not currently on their site.

3. Use the raw converter that came with your camera.

Can't open img prefix cr2 suffex files with abobe bridge or cs3


Hi there,
You say the problem only just began. What has happened to Photoshop in between it working and not, ie, any upgrades, updates, installs, etc? This will no doubt reveal the answer to your conundrum. Get PS to check for updates then do them all, especially any referencing Camera RAW updates.

The next thing you will want to check is that the image files are ok. Download the latest Canon image viewer from here. You can also download the drivers directly from the canon site. Just click the link at the bottom of the page.

All the best

Panasonic DMC-TZ3 72 dpi problem


Sounds like Photoshop's setting, or default setting, is to import picture at its maximum size. If you RESIZE pic on Photoshop, it shoud automatically increase DPI while reducing physical size.

The other thing to be aware, TZ3 defaults to a certain jpg compression. You can minimize compression of data with settings options on TZ3, but I doubt this has anything to do with your PhotoShop issue.

Also, in SIMPLE mode you can select a physical size for photo, even after pic is taken(resize), on camera.

Hopes this helps.
