Question about Canon PowerShot SD850 IS Digital Camera

Changing the photo resolution

I was trying to figure out how to increase the photo resolution to send a picture to a magazine publication (and have it show up larger than a postage stamp when printed). In trying to read the manual (no where is the word resolution mentioned) and push the buttons, I was worried I had changed settings. Never figured how to get 1800 x 1200, BUT I did lose all my pictures when I pushed a "reset to default" button. Pictures are gone but I still need to know how to change the photo resolution. HELP!

Increase resolution


The poster resolution and the computer resolution are completely separate. The cpt resolution controls the monitor screen display. The poster resolution refers to the camera pixels used in recording the original picture - it cannot be increased. The poster program is measuring the resolution of the file picture only and indicating that t will produce a blurry poster.

I have a fujifilm finepix s9000 and if trying to set my pics to high resolution. I have the quality set at 9m f but even when I set it to 9m N it still shows my pictures with a 72dpi. I need higher than...


The DPI refers only to the printed resolution, and that value can be set to any number you like. It has nothing to do with the actual resolution of the photo, and it can be changed without affecting a single pixel in the image.

I have olympus camedia 4.0 mega pixel. old camera. need to know how to change the camera photo storage from 18 photos to at least 64 photos storage


Hi, jamesepatton, and welcome to FixYa.
I am going to assume that you are referring to the camera's internal storage, as opposed to the camera's removable storage card.
Obviously, to increase the storage on a removable card, one need only purchase another, higher capacity storage card.
To change the camera's internal storage capacity, one needs to reduce the resolution of the pictures one takes.
Example- your Olympus is capable of taking a 4.0 mega pixel sized picture. This size picture can generate a fairly large data file (after all, pictures- like Word documents- are only data files!) While this is what is normally programmed into the camera at the factory, you are not 'married' to this size. In the "Setting" menu of the camera, there will be an option to change the mega pixel (mp) setting. Try lowering it to the next lower setting (say, 3.0 mp) and shoot until the camera tells you it's full. You may have to try several different mp setting, but eventually you'll land on the right one. It's going to depend a lot on what is in your pictures as well, as different scenes and content can affect file size.
A quick note here: Lowering the mp setting will affect the quality (and/or resolution) of the photo. I have found that for a great majority of the photos that I personally take, a 2.0 mp setting is just fine. I am by no means shooting magazine covers or entering my pictures in contests, I shoot 'em, print 'em and save 'em. Just your basic home pictures.
If resolution/quality is important, I would highly recommend that you save ALL pictures to a removable memory card and leave the camera set on 4.0 mp.
Good luck, and let us know how you go!

I take photos but display in the computer photo size is post card size, how to make little big picture


The size of a picture/photo depends on the resolution that you have set on the photo capturing source(webcam, Digicam etc). So you need to increase the resolution as much as possible to increase the size and quality on the photo. It will also increase the space required to store it.

Hope this will help.....cheers:)

I need to know how to increase the size of the pictures to at least 100 for publication in a magazine, the camera is a Lumix DMC-FS42


You have to set the camera for high resolution images BEFORE you take the pictures. If you try to make them bigger later (in a computer, you can't do it in camera), you will get fuzziness or blockiness.

I don't know what you mean by "100". On my Lumix, the picture resolutions are given in pixels, like 2560x1920 or 640x480. The larger numbers are the higher resolutions, and for best quality (and biggest native size), you will want the highest resolution available in your camera. You will also want to set the compression to the finest setting. These settings are on the REC settings screen, which is the first to come up when you press the menu button.

Higher resolution/quality photos will require more storage space in memory, so you might want to get another or a bigger memory card.

What are the best settings to produce Hi Res images suitable for magazine publication


Hi,
For the best image that a finepix S2000HD can produce use the Maximum resolution is 3648 × 2736
and check for 10 mega pixel settings.

This will give freedom to edit the pictures and do what ever you want to the pictures.

Blurry enlargements


I suggest altering the settings a little and if that doesn't work try using a different software to enlarge images. Such as windows photo gallery. That's not too good for enlarging just good for keeping the quality up if that isn't good enough try using a free trial of photo shop.
Hope I helped Dr Red

I take photos for print in a magazine and cannot figure out how to set proper resolution, size. I've read the manual.


camera should have a menu that will let you change configurations.
This might be understood as being the pixal size.. Most good cameras let you lower the size to get more pictures in.

Want Increase resolution from 72dpi to 200 dpi


increase in dpi will not increase the resolution. dpi = dots per inch for example you have a res of 1024x768 at 72dpi you get a printed image of 14.2x10.6 inch at 300dpi you get a printed image of 3.4x2.5 inch
only thing possible is to interpolate the image. but thats **** in my opinion.

Resolution


Many cameras will take pictures at only 72 dpi. Changing the resolution causes the camera to change the size of the picture in terms of pixel dimension (ie 800x600 vs 640x480) but always at 72 dots per inch. A photo editing program like Photoshop can change the resolution to whatever you need.
