Re: shadows

Sounds like your lense cover is not fully retracting when you turn your camera on, thus when the flash goes off these are creating shadows on your picture.

Canon 1400 IS: When I take a picture using flash of a close up object, a shadow is cast on the lower right corner of the picture. For pictures that are not taken close up with flash, or taken from further...

It's most likely the shadow of the lens. The flash is above and to the left of the lens, so the shadow of the lens will be to the right and below.

I bought me camera off ebay and the software didn't come with it

Easy, just change the camera's USB connection to the DSC mode. You don't need any software when the camera is in DSC mode, it looks like a memory stick or card reader to your computer.

Enter the picture viewing mode, press the "menu /OK" button, arrow down to menu "2",
arrow down to "Set",
right arrow to the sub menu,
Arrow down to menu "3",
arrow down to "USB",
right arrow and arrow up to change from "Pict Bridge" to "DSC", left arrow out and press "menu/OK" button.

How to overlay picture in D40x camera

Overlaying pictures, like almost all photo manipulations, is better done on a computer using "real" software rather than on a camera. You get much more control on a computer. However, the D40 does have a wide repertoire of photo manipulation capabilities.

In order to overlay images, you must be shooting in RAW (or RAW+JPEG). Select Image Overlay from the Retouch menu. A preview dialog will be displayed with Image 1 highlighted. Press OK to get a photo selection dialog. Use left/right to highlight the first picture in the overlay. (You can press and hold the Zoom button to see the selected photo fullscreen.) Press OK to select the image. Optimize exposure for the image by pressing up/down. Press left/right to highlight Image 2. Select the second image the same way. Press left/right to highlight the Preview column. Overlay will show you the result, allowing you to go back and change things if you wish. Save will save the overlaid photo.

The shadow in the lower portion of your camera is probably caused by the lens hood. The solution is simple: remove the lens hood whenever you're using the built-in flash.

When i go 2 photo,s ive taken.then move the shutter button 2 the right 2 zoom in,then it lets me move the picture up down left or right.when ive got the picture i want,how do i save that picture.

Unfortunately that image is not able to be saved that way. To zoom in closer to the image is only for viewing purposes it does not allow you to save the image that way. You would need to download the image to the computer to be able to save it in that close up format.

Shadow across photo

Shadows, especially circular shadows, are pretty common with the pop-up flash. What you are seeing is actually the shadow cast by the end of the lens. This happens especially on wider angle shots.

The solution is to find a way to get the lens out of the way of the flash. You can get an external flash, like a 430ex or 580ex, which elevates the flash far above the lens. That is an expensive option so first you might try making a diffuser for your pop up flash, which softens the source of light and helps eliminate some shadows:
