Question about Pentax Optio S5i Digital Camera

Saving the pictures to my computer

I saved pictures earlier to my computer. To my surprise, I saw that more than half of it had the JPEG icon instead of the picture itself. I tried clicking it and it said "Preview not available". I also tried uploading them to my multiply but it's no use. It doesn't want to upload. What happened to my pictures? Is there anyway to get them back?

In the past I've been able to open some damaged jpegs with Photoshop. Usually there's an area of the photo that does not look right and it's necessary to crop it and save as jpeg to get something useful.

The real question, as dg9dotorg says, is do the pictures look correct on the camera itself. If they don't then you may have a camera problem.

Try copying it again from your camera to your PC. If you browse it in your camera do you still see the images? If you do see the images, it is just a copy problem...

My Nion3100 is saving pictures into "NEF" format instead of "JPEG. Don't know how it got switched or how to switch t back. Can I re-format the pic on my SD card so I can work with them on the computer


Open the "Shooting Menu" by pressing the Menu button. Press the right Multi-selector and then scroll up or down to "Image Quality". Press the right Multi-selector and you will see the various choices for JPEG and NEF combinations and quality, make your selection by scrolling up or down and pressing "OK".
As for converting you NEF photos to JPEG; you can easily do that in one of several ways on your computer. If you are using Lightroom or Photoshop, all you have to do is open your pictures, select "Save As" and use the pull-down menu to select JPEG and save. If you do not have that program, there are several conversion programs available on the Web; manu for free. I use a program called BatchConverter on my Mac. There are similar programs of PCs.

I have Sigma DP1. There is one problem - when I shoot in sunny weather, I have light pink color instead of white color. How its possible to change white balance?


This camera gets low marks for "White Balance" ease of use. Results are "inconsistent".

A much more reliable way is to change saving images in camera from JPEG to RAW format. Using the included Sigma Photo Pro (SPP) RAW converter that is provided on a CD-ROM (the software can also be downloaded from the Sigma Website) with the camera, makes adjusting the white balance much easier. The downside is that is an additional step that must be done on a computer instead of getting pictures straight out of the camera. The upside is the huge amount of control you get by shooting RAW in the editing mode on the computer. You can read more about JPEG vs RAW here. Outside of shooting RAW, there's little to be done about poor white balance IN the camera.

I hope this was helpful. Please rate my reply. Thank you.

I have a problem that it does not appear my photos but recognize the usb


What kind of pictures are you saving? Ex:jpeg, digital images, etc
Also could be the excesive amount of using the usb's memory saving files, images, videos, etc,,deleting them and saving new ones back again.

Scanner saves multiple pages separately, need saved as one


hi, 

thats very easy, i believe so ur trying to scan from the printer itself becoz that happens if u try to scan from the printer itself, instead of that use the solution center software.
if u have installed the complete software which was provided by hp, u will a icon on ur desktop called solution center, click on that and click on the scan document button on it and u get a pop window in that select the file type as PDF and click on scan at the bottom of the window and once it completes the scan, it will give a message do want to scan another page, click yes and go ahead with that........

i think i have answered ur query..............

Scanned a word document, saved as jpeg file


By default all scanned documents are images (jpeg), OCR software converts the image to text for use with Word. I do not believe the scanner can tell what format to use without your input. More information is available here at HP's Online Support.

Nikon D200 incomplete RAW pictures


If youre using exposure bracketing, especially when raw+jpeg is used, this is saving out massive amounts of data to the memory card. Have you tried using a faster (80x) memory card and/or just using raw alone? You can always make the jpeg at the computer later.

Setting the format of the picture i scan


Ok I am not sure why ya scanner won't save in JPEG .. however converting the files to JPEG is relitively "Simple". After saving the Scanned picture.. Open it up in say MS Paint, Painshop etc, then simply choose "Save As.." from the File Menu, and save it as a NEW image file this time with a JPEG extension. IE: origional... picture.png or picture.bmp ... save as ...picture.jpg .. ya should be good to go. :)
