Question about Canon Rebel XT / EOS 350D Digital Camera

3 Answers

How can i imorove the Image qualityt? My camera image size has always been set on 'large & fine' which tranlates into a 300dpi image when I open it in Photoshop. Suddenly, large and fine only puts out a 180dpi image. Do you know what might have happened to lower the image quality?

    My camera's pic quality setting is on high, so that's 8MPs. But the image transferred to the PC comes out at just a bit over half of that, 4MPs. Please HELP, what am I doing wrong??

Actually, you should not have to resort to RAW to get it. Best pixel quality in both RAW *and* JPG LARGE FINE modes on this camera are listed on both the camera and in the manual at a resolution of 3456 x 2304. However, since not even Canon Tech support knew the answer I don't blame ya LOL. Figured it out myself. It only gives 8MP JPGs in the advanced modes. Any of the basic modes will give a max of 4MPs, and I used the macro function a lot - thus my 4MPs. :)

Thx Slimsl - I shouldn't have to shoot in RAW to get my 8MP resolution. Especially not since it tells me on both the camera and in the manul that JPG on L mode (fine) also has a 3456 x 2304 resolution, just like RAW.
I believe I narrowed it down, though by trying a few different things. Looks like it won't do 8MPs in the BASIC modes. I will only get it shooting in the ADVANCED modes (P, Av, Tv etc).

Best qulity you can get with canon 350d is RAW format, but you cant shoot raw in automatic mode , when you switch camera to manual mode you will see raw option is enabled. if not JPEG (EXIF 2.21) - Fine will capture your images at 8MPX with 3456 x 2304 resolution.

72 dpi instead of 300dpi


You do this in your editor. In photoshop you go Image -> Image Size and you'll see resolution set at 300 as default just change the 300 to 72.

Setting dpi on my nikon d3100


DPI (dots per inch) is an output specification and is irrelevant to the camera. The camera puts a value into the field simply because it has to put something there. The DPI is set by the printing program when it prints a picture. A picture printed at 4x6 will obviously have more dots per inch than the same picture printed at 8x10.

How to enlarge scanned photo.


Set your scanner to scan at 600dpi.  That will give you a 8x12 image at 300dpi (print quality- your image never needs to be more than 300dpi).

Then use your favourite image editor to crop the image to 8x10.  If you don't have a favourite image editor, XNView (free) will do it:
http://www.xnview.com/

-Open the image in XNView
-Right click on the image, select "Set Selection Ratio --> 5:4"
-With your left mouse button, drag a square on the image...this will automatically scale so it chops the unwanted 2" off
-When the square is selecting the bit you want to keep, select "Edit --> Crop"
-Then we need to change the image from 600dpi to 300 dpi:
-Select "Image --> Resize"
-Uncheck the "Resample" and "Keep print size"
-"Keep ratio" should be checked
-Change the 600 in the "Units" box to 300; the setting unit should be "Pixels per Inch"
-Print

Photo resolution


Sony H1 takes photos at 72 dpi by default. But the picture quality will be good. if you want to convert it to 300dpi open the picture in adobe Photoshop and select image size and change resolution to 300 dpi. but the file size will be very high to up load. if you want to reduce the file size select the image size in adobe photoshop and reduce it according to your requirement. if my solution proves good please rate it. Regards.

Aperture priority and image size


Auto and the other settings each have an independent image size that the camera remembers. You need to set the image size for AP. Go to AP mode and press FUNC. The image size should show up in the left menu (it may say L, M1, M2, S, standing for Large, Medium, and Small, resolution settings). Select it and choose a different size that you'd prefer (believe that you want L). Then press FUNC again to exit the menu.

Creating a 300 dpi x 300 dpi file


You need to be able to change the DPI setting in the image file. This can be done in most complete photo editors, though they tend to name the procedure in different ways. In Corel Photo-Paint, you would look for "Resample Image". In the open source photo editor Gimp, look for "Scale" under "Image".

In all such procedures, what you want is to set both the vertical and horizontal DPI values to 300, apply them, then save the image. Please do save it to a different filename, since you lose some quality of JPEG images every time they are saved.

Scan images file size seems very large


That entirely depends on your scan settings. The resolution has a huge impact on file size - doubling the resolution from, say. 150dpi to 300dpi actually quadruples your file size. That being said, your scans are probably saved as BMPs. If you scan to Paint or a proprietary image editor (like Photoshop), then you can save in a compressed format like JPG or PNG and reduce the file size some more.

Bottom line - if you're scanning a full size (8.5x11) page, then less than 2MB per page is pretty decent, especially if the file is a BMP. If these are 4x6 photos, then it's still not bad if you're using a resolution like 300dpi. My digital camera takes photos at 5megapixels and the files are often 1-2MB each, and those are just photos.

Setting dpi on canon ixus 800 IS


You can download manuals here.

As dpi is generally a printing specification, the size you set on your camera depends on what size prints you want to make. If you want to print 4" x 6" prints at 300 dpi, you can set the size to M2. If you want to print 5" x 7" prints at 300 dpi, set the size to M1. Anything larger, set the size to L. With L selected, an 8" x 10" will still be about 300 dpi, but any larger print will be at less than 300 dpi.

300 dpi


Shooting pictures in Fine quality will give you atleast 300 DPI resolution. Check your camera setup menu to see what quality you're shooting in, and adjust as necessary.
If you need to print 300dpi, this is done in whatever program you're using to output. In Photoshop, this is done by going to image>image size and changing Resolution to 300 (or whatever other resolution you want)

Resolution


The short answer is you cannot! I believe the resolution of your camera is 1600 x 1200 pixels; if you print this out @ 300dpi. you will get a print size of 5.3 x 4 inches. if you print at 72 dpi the print size will be 22 x16 ins. The 72 ppi that is recorded with your exif data is meaningless.
