Re: Changing the picture resolution

Turn on your camera.
Trun the switch on the top of the camera to AUTO.
Press the middle button right of the display (x/-).
Then you can first change the size (7M, 6M, 5M, 5M, 3M, 1M).
If you now use the circle button on the right bottom and on this button you press up or down you can change the quality (very fine, fine, normal).
You can change the size and quality if you press left/right on the circle button.

I have olympus camedia 4.0 mega pixel. old camera. need to know how to change the camera photo storage from 18 photos to at least 64 photos storage

Hi, jamesepatton, and welcome to FixYa.
I am going to assume that you are referring to the camera's internal storage, as opposed to the camera's removable storage card.
Obviously, to increase the storage on a removable card, one need only purchase another, higher capacity storage card.
To change the camera's internal storage capacity, one needs to reduce the resolution of the pictures one takes.
Example- your Olympus is capable of taking a 4.0 mega pixel sized picture. This size picture can generate a fairly large data file (after all, pictures- like Word documents- are only data files!) While this is what is normally programmed into the camera at the factory, you are not 'married' to this size. In the "Setting" menu of the camera, there will be an option to change the mega pixel (mp) setting. Try lowering it to the next lower setting (say, 3.0 mp) and shoot until the camera tells you it's full. You may have to try several different mp setting, but eventually you'll land on the right one. It's going to depend a lot on what is in your pictures as well, as different scenes and content can affect file size.
A quick note here: Lowering the mp setting will affect the quality (and/or resolution) of the photo. I have found that for a great majority of the photos that I personally take, a 2.0 mp setting is just fine. I am by no means shooting magazine covers or entering my pictures in contests, I shoot 'em, print 'em and save 'em. Just your basic home pictures.
If resolution/quality is important, I would highly recommend that you save ALL pictures to a removable memory card and leave the camera set on 4.0 mp.
Good luck, and let us know how you go!

Picture Size to Large?

This may not be the solution; however, please obtain a larger capacity memory card.
A 2GB card will give you several hundred photos. Cost is less than $10.
You really should not lower the resolution. you will lose detail that you may want in the future (really). (4GB card will hold over 999 pictures - $15)
If you must lower the resolution, press "Menu" and use the arrows to move the highlight bar to "resolution" ... change it to a lower number like 6MP. keep the "FINE" setting in place (if your model has that setting) or maybe "BEST".
Do not use "RAW" - (very large pix).
Hope this helps!

I CAN ONLY TAKE 10 pictures and then it says memory full. i used to be able to take 200 pics

You need to reset the size of your pictures (to a lower resolution). This will allow the camera to take more pictures (albeit at a lower resolution) per memory card. The less pixels, the more pictures.

Canon 5D resolution question

The 5D has a 12.8 mega pixel sensor.

2 x 4 ft. is 24 x 48 inches, so you have to cover 1152 sq. inches using 12.5 million pixels.

Spreading 12.5 million pixels over 1152 sq. inches means 10,850 pixels per sq. inch. Taking the square root gives you a maximium resolution of 104 pixels per inch (or 'dpi')

Photoshop will allow you to increase the resolution by a process known as 'interpolation' .. increasing to 300 dpi using Photoshop before printing will give a better result.

NB. Depending on your printing process, you may end up dealing with files up to 500Mb in size ....

Many cameras will take pictures at only 72 dpi. Changing the resolution causes the camera to change the size of the picture in terms of pixel dimension (ie 800x600 vs 640x480) but always at 72 dots per inch. A photo editing program like Photoshop can change the resolution to whatever you need.

What are high resolution and standard resolution?

All pictures have 24-bit pixel depth, or 16 million colors at 144 dots per inch. The high resolution setting produces a standard size photo, 4.44" x 3.33" at 640 x 480 pixels. A wallet size photo of 2.22" x 1.67" at 320 x 240 pixels is produced using the standard resolution setting. Example: A picture with dimensions of 4.44" x 3.33" at a pixel count of 640 x 480 will have the same dpi as the same picture at a 320 x 240 pixel count with dimensions of 2.22" x 1.67" (dpi=144 x 144 or 20736 pixels per square inch). The larger picture will have a much higher resolution due to the fact that four times the pixels will define the same section of the picture in the larger photograph.
