Question about Canon Rebel XT / EOS 350D Digital Camera

2 Answers

Resolution problems I have my Cannon XT set at large under quality but no matter what the quality setting is set at all my pictures once downloaded have a PPI of 72. I have tried everything possible but still get only 72 PPI pics. I am using Cannon software to download the pictures and have also tried Adobe. What can I do to fix the problem?

Re: Resolution problems

Sometimes if you open up a photo in Photoshop, or another bitmap program, it'll display your photo at 72dpi. That's OK because your photo is likely to also be very large in size. Reduce it's size while at the same time allowing those pixels to crunch together- effectively giving you your print size and resolution that you need.

Re: Resolution problems

A quick and easy solution would be to use a CF card reader. You will find that the transfer rates are higher too. With a card reader you will be able to copy your images to any system running Windows, Mac OS or Linux without installing the camera's software.

Display of remaining pictures remains 9999 no matter what size stick is in the camera

If you have a large Gb card and you have set your camera to the lowest resolution, 9999 is the highest the available frame count will go up to. You may well be able to shot more images than 9999 on low resolution. Try setting the camera to the highest resolution and see if the available no. of shots changes. You should also note that the available no. of shots left is only an approximation.

Hello, My camera had been taking photos under a file size of 1 MB, normally 800 KB. Today for some inexplicable reason (I must have done something!), the photo file size is 4MB, too large to send and use...

On your camera, look for settings. You must have set it on "Large" or "Max" picture quality. Thus making your 'normal' 800kb into a more better quality.

On your laptop/computer try to open it in a image editor and change the resolution of the picture.

Set your camera to take pictures at the maximum megapixel level. Later, if you need to lower the resolution of your pics for whatever purpose, you can do that in any photo-editing program.

Printed pictures look like a puzzel - not clear and sharp.

You have changed the resolution on your camera to a lower setting. A lower setting will allow you get more pictures on your camera's memory card but the quality will be very much lower. How you change this will vey much depend on your camera. Read the manual and/or post the model here.

Depending on camera model the setting might be called large or show
L M S (large medium small options). Also up the quality by setting the quality to fine or super fine.

Alternativly ....
Bring it in to a camera shop and ask for help or bestbuy or some such store that specialises in electronics - i'd be surprised if they didn't fix it for you in about 5 minutes - don't let them sell you another camera or more accessories with out getting a second/third opinion.

Canon Rebel EOS - Pictures download read Low Resolution

Canon Digital Rebel cameras let you set the image resolution from small jpegs (low resolution) to large jpegs (high resolution) to RAW (best quality, but require post-processing in your computer before you can print them). It's possible that as you were getting to know your camera you accidentally set the image size and quality to a low setting. Now you just need to change it back!

You make this change in the on-screen menu, under the camera menu (first menu, with a camera icon), first item (Quality). Although Canon no longer has the manual for this camera online, you can see This Review Page for more details on where to change this setting on your camera.

Changing the resolution on my camera before i go to photoshop

using the RAW setting will give a higher quality photo, the other formats compress to jpeg causing you to loose some of the original photo information. the ZoomBrowser EX program allows you to edit the RAW image, I recommend getting the large prints done at Kinkos or some place like that. I've gotten poster size prints done that look very clear. Use a tripod to combat camera shake, it is very apperent at that size of print. Also a low ISO to help reduce noise.
