You should be able to change the resolution in the menu. Run through the menu . This should help.

Please have my images stay as images not turn into cartoons


Are you sending these from say a phone/tablet to your t.v? If so try a higher resolution picture to see if that helps the issue. If so, there are a few options that involve getting a higher resolution camera or photos.

My diablo loses its picture quality on desk top but plays perfect on laptop.


The picture on a PC depends on your resolution of the graphic card. Get a better card & a higher resolution moniter and you get better graphic images!

How you change the pic size, when i taka picture, the i get is 160x120, is there a way to get a larger pic...


Cameras on cell phones are low resolution cameras, this means less memory is needed.
To get larger picture, higher resolution picture/images you need to use a digital camera.

I bought new monitor Compaq S1922a and picture stretched horizontal. I have HP intel with Vista. How to adjust VGA to make picture normal?


if the whole image is too long you can adjust it from tthe image driver ..it will be in the right side on the task bar near the programs that are opened all the time ..and named like the video card you are using and usually will display when hoovering the resolution in use..open the resolutions and choose one that fits best...and confirm ..
To adjust just the the picture from the desktop ..right click on the desktop..properties..and desktop...in there choose the desktop image ..or change image ..and you will have 3 possibilities for adjusting the picture to fit..center ...stretch..and tile.. see them one by one ...if non of the stile will make it visible in a normal way ..then you should change the picture,,and choose a wallpaper that it is in the same form and big enough to fit....
T change a picture on the wallpaper it is enough to right click on it when its opened ..and choose it to be set as wallpaper from the list of tasks...

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

Can not change the number of images that can be taken


Ok, this is a very easy procedure..
While in picture taking mode, press the set button and it will activate the controls to choose the image resolution. If you select a higher image size or number, it will improve your quality of picture as the number of the resolution you choose gets higher. Simply use the side scroll and the up/down scroll on the back... that will do it for you!

How do you put format the camera to take the highest resolution pictures?


Since you did not state your camera make/model, it is still safe to say that you would need to go into the menu and change the image quality to "large". Typically a JPG if you are not familiar with "RAW" (i.e., if your camera will shoot RAW). JPG is the easiest. The larger the image the higher the resolution. This allows more information to be in your image file. Prints made from larger images will look better.

Take higher resolution pictures? hehe!

Go to the settings menu of your camera, then into the picture quality options and stick it on "high".

High-resolution images will take up more space, so make sure your memory card is large enough to hold the number of images you're going to take.

At 6 mega-pixel (the resolution) each image is going to be around 2-3Mb each. A 1Gb (1024Mb) card will obviously store around 500 pictures. =-]

Resolution & picture problem


Solved it... :D
Well, the resolution option depends up on application that uses the camera at that moment... Dumb or not, this could have happened to anyone who used it with no additional software ( just with "My Computer -> MSI Star Cam 370i " icon )..

Image quality in low resolution


SHQ1 and HQ are two different levels of compression to make the file smaller. This will have a great impact on the image quality. Generally on Olympus cameras, this is what those letters mean: TIFF (highest (best) quality) generally not used. Files are HUGE and takes a long time for the camera to save the image to the card. SHQ (super high quality) you probably wouldn't be able to tell the difference between this and the TIFF HQ (high quality) which is lower quality than SHQ SQ (standard quality) which is lower quality than HQ SQ1 (standard quality 1) which is lower quality that SQ SQ2 (standard quality 2) which is lower quality that SQ1 A 2048x1536 only seems large because most people have their monitors set to 800x600 or maybe 1024x768 (that's what I have mine set at). This will seem to make the image REALLY LARGE! It only seems that way because you have to scroll around to see the image. If you want to print images, you'll want all the resolution you can get. If you want to display them on your screen (slide show,WEB page) then you don't need large images. You would just need to resize them down. However, since you may want to both, getting a camera with a higher resolution gives you the choice to do either. Usually, the higher resolution cameras have better lenses and generally take better pictures. On my camera (the Oly 2100), I always shoot at the highest resolution and the least amount of compression (SHQ on my camera). This allows me to do almost anything with the image. Nowadays, camera media (smart cards) are fairly cheap, HD's are DIRT cheap and CD-Rs are very cheap. If the images are "keepers", then I personally would want to start with the best image possible and store the images on CD.
