SOURCE: I cannot upload the photos from my finepix camera.

You need to uninstall and then re-install the software, a windows update or an improper shut down of your pc probably damaged part of the software.

SOURCE: My new FujiFilm Camera Simply Will Not upload Images.

i figured it out. or rather, my brother did. if you plug it in and everything, nothing on the actually camera will show up, and the finepixviewer or whatever wont open, but all the pictures will now be under your "pictures" folder. you just have to go there and open them.

Can I increase the 72dpi to 300dpi on my FinePix S7000 Camera?


No. DPI (dots per inch) only has meaning when you output a photo. It can control how large a print you make. A 4x6 print will have more DPI than an 8x10 print made from the same photo, since they both have the same number of dots but different numbers on inches.
You control the DPI when selecting the size of the print, not when you take the photo.

What is dpi on Kodak EasyShare M1093IS


The DPI (dots per inch) number only has meaning when printing the picture. It's meaningless to a camera.
The M1093IS takes photos that are 3672 x 2748 pixels at its best resolution. If you make a 4x6 print of one, you'll be getting more than 600dpi. If you make a 8x10 print of the same picture, you'll only be getting about 300dpi. Yet they're made from the same image file.
If you must change the image file itself, open it in just about any photo editor, change the DPI field, then save the file. Make sure you do this to a copy, not the original.

Photographs always come into photoshop at 72dpi. how do I increase this so photographs come in at 300dpi?


Forget 72dpi. Photoshop opens the picture in 100%.
1 pixel on the monitor is one pixel from the camera.
300dpi is only relevant when making prints, where 300dpi is the highest quality you can get from a lab.
The smaller the print, the more dots you get per inch.

I just changed out the print head and upgraded to a 300 dpi print head. Now when I print onto my label (2.5" x 0.75") label about 1/4" at the top of the label is not being used. Is there a configuration...


mmm...didn't think the printheads were interchangable. But the print will be smaller using a 300dpi printhead if you send a format that was designed for a 203dpi printhead. This is because the dots are smaller on the 300dpi. Make sure your formats have been switched to the 300dpi driver.

Hope that helps !

They keep telling me that my picture is too big . It is a 4X6 picture on my computer.


More information on exactly what you are trying to do would be helpful... But it sounds like it's a resolution problem. Computer monitors usually display 72 or 96 dpi (Dots Per Inch) Printers usually print out images at 300 or 600 dpi Some newspapers are printed at only 50 dpi Scanners can scan a photo in thousands of dpi...
If your photo is a 4x6 at 300dpi, then when they try to display it in 72dpi, it will display as just a bit larger than a 16x20" image
When you are scanning a photo to email, then make sure that you set your resolution to 72 dpi to display on the screen - or vice versa, if you are going to print something, make sure you scan it at 300dpi
If you have any graphic programs, (Microsoft offers "PowerToys" for Windows XP) you can open the file in that, and usually find a setting for the Image Size that will let you set a new DPI. It's usually ok to lower an image's dpi - but there is a loss of quality anytime you try to add dpi, since you are forcing the computer to "guess" what all those hundreds of dots should look like, and they aren't good at that.

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.

I need 96 dpi but I don't know what resolution settings to use to get that


It sounds like you need 96 dpi for some sort of graphics application? This really has nothing to do with viewing on your monitor though. DPI has more to do with how the image, pixel per pixel, is spaced during printing.

For instance... if you have an image that is 960x960.. at 96dpi you could print a 10 inch square image (wouldn't look that great at 10 inches however).

However printers ALSO manipulate the dpi. So for large images, you might need to give the printer an image that has 196dpi.

In summary, it really depends on the application. Thermal printers normally prefer 300dpi, large format printers like 196dpi (or there abouts), and our normal home inkjet will accept any dpi but you will notice if you give it 196dpi, you will get a better image when printing larger images.

Higher res pics on OPtio S4


This resolution doesn't matter to most software. It doesn't change the image at all, just occasionally the size it is displayed (only if the software scales the image according to the resolution, which most don't). This having been said, I doubt there is a way to change it in camera. But you could certainly change the XResolution and YResolution meta information with any good EXIF editor. Also, Photoshop can do this too, but it will mess up other things in the meta information. You should be able to script either to apply this change to a number of photos at once.
