Question about Kodak EasyShare Z730 Digital Camera

Kodak z730 resolution issues

On my mac, iphoto tells me my file size (res) is 2576 x 1932, and this should be more than sufficient for a quality print. however when i use an online printing service, they tell me the resolution isn't high enough and the photo will be pixellated. (shutterfly said the size is only 320 x 240.)
is it my mac? is it in the uploading? is there an online photo service that will get me great prints? i tried snapfish and shutterfly to no avail.

when i take my SD card to a photo kiosk, they come out OK, but only OK, and it is inconvenient.

the settings on the camera are at 5.0 MP (highest) and standard JPEG compression.

It sounds to me that for whatever reason, you might be trying to export the thumbnail copy of the picture. On a 5MP you are right its more than enough to develop in sizes up to an 11 x 14.

However (I'm not too familiar with the Mac software, my apologies) if you are exporting or saving the thumbnail to your card, they will save at a far smaller size, and would lead to your pixellation problems, and the reason why the pictures are not coming out okay.

How do i download from iPhoto to a usb stick

hi Jo, if the size, quality, and the type of pic suits your needs do what kevin said, just copy, and paste it, but if the pic has to be altered to be compatible with the end use, do this
While in iPhoto bring up the pic you want to transfer, click on file (in the bar at the top of the screen) choose "export", it will give you the option to change size, type, name, quality, etc..
when your done click on the export icon, and if your flash drive is plugged in it will come up as an option ;-)

Can't get any of my personal pictures to show up on the digital picture frame at all

Check the max resolution of you pic frame (800x600), you may have to resize your pics down in res until they display. Take one pic that will not display and reduce the size 6 or 7 times on a memory card.( ... Make it a litter smaller each time) Then load and show each one until it is displayed. You have found your target size...

How to reduce picture file size on my Mac

Where are the photos?
If they are in iPhoto, select the one you want and email it to yourself. iPhoto will then ask you what size you want to send the pictuire.Once you have received the image you can then upload it in its new size.
Seems inelegant but it works.

I use a mac. Have all pictures stored on iphone and would love to know how to get the photos to my photo frame. Not sure how to get pictures from iphoto to a memory card or whatever it is I need to do.

Use iPhoto to get the images off your iPhone and onto your Mac, then export you selected images to a media format the photo frame support.
Now without knowing the requirements of the photo frame but going to guess it accepts and USB thumb drive. Once you have imported your images into iPhoto from your iPhone, plug in the USB thumb drive to your Mac. In iPhoto, select the images you wish to move to your photo frame ( either select an album or individual images). Then go to the File Menu and pull down to Export and save the images to your Thumb drive. For best results for image quality on the photo frame you will want to match the export size with the native resolution of the photo frame.

My images save at sizes of 3-4 MB!!! how can i get them to be (way) smaller files??? powershot SD790is digital elph

Your solutions are varied, but the results will be (mostly) the same. Option 1: Lower the resolution and quality settings on your camera. If you are seeing 3-4 MB per photo, then they are probably at least 4000 pixels wide, and your file size will be larger to reflect that. If you set the camera to a lower quality and or resolution, you will for sure save disk space. Consequently, you will also lose image quality. If you are mainly archiving the photos for the purpose of viewing them online, on your PC, or through a digital picture frame, this is no big deal. If you intend to print, especially a large print, you will see pixelation occur in the print. This will take smooth parts of your picture and chunk colors together in a "boxy" appearance. Your second option, is to import your photos in a program like Google Picasa or many other free options, and then convert your image to a compressed format, such as a compressed JPEG or PNG file. PNG files are usually the better choice for file size, but not every devices (frames, TVs, etc.) recognize PNG files. So you may want to stick with JPEG depending on your use for your photos. Additionally, you can lower the resolution of hi-res photos within Picasa (or its alternatives) after importing the photos. This is the preferred route as you can take every photo like you want to print it as a poster, and then choose which photos to drop the resolution. This gives you the safety of shooting each picture as if you want to keep the quality and then later decide which are worth archiving at what resolution. Remember, the detail in a photo also reflects upon its size, not just resolution, if you take one 12 MP picture of the sky and another of a bunch of different color balloons, the balloon will have more color data and thus a higher file size.

I just bought a Z1285. I put SD memory cards with pics and videos made with my Z730 in it and i can view pics ok but when i try to view videos screen reads"unrecognized file format" Whats up with this

Hi this is a simple one!

The Kodak Z730 records movies at the following resolution and frame rates 640 x 480, 12 fps, 320 x 240, 20 fps while the Z1285 records movies at the following resolution and frame rates 1280 x 720, 640 x 480, 320 x 240, 30 fps therefore you cannot view the Z730 movies on the Z1285 and vice versa.

Can't upload videos to Imovie

Kodak series cameras capture videos in MOV files. iMovie will only import codecs that it can edit. iMovie can import MP4, DV, Apple Intermediate Codec, H.264, Photo JPEG, Motion JPEG, Apple Animation, and perhaps others. MOV is a multimedia container file, not a codec. It can contain any of the above codecs, but it could contain other codecs that are not editable by iMovie, such as MPEG-1 or MPEG-2 so that sometimes iMovie cannot recognize Kodak videos directly.
please try this video converter, good luck. kodak video to imovie

Size of JPEG file produced by this camera

the general rule is a jpeg is halve the mb of the resolution-6 mp =3mb file size-kodak uses a ton of compression and this is the main reason why-put a memory card in a kodak and you pick up about 20-30% more capacity than other brands!
