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.

On my Rebel Canon t2i how do I change the images from RAW to JPEG?


when you have an image from raw, for example 3000 x 4000 pixels, and convert to jpg , it remains 3000 x 4000 pixels, so detail remains the same, but you have make sure compression is 100% 10 or 12 scale when save as export , in options, if you lower compression the pixelating becomes noticeable,

http://www.selteco.com/support/s1065.php
http://graphicssoft.about.com/od/formats...

check settings for save as export for photoshop and lightroom, keep resolution high, if images are resized to smaller 5x7 " sizes for web, maintain resolution ratio from 72 up towards 300 ppi/dpi,

Save as copy, not save for web,

if you were saving to limited web service site, they may decompression or lower file size quality of original image for upload,
if you have lower bandwidth service, your settings for web use may also be low for faster loading, making quality lower,

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.

How do I increase the dpi on TZ5


Hi - When talking about resolution in digital photography there are two main meanings.
One is the "pixel count resolution" and the other "embedded resolution". So for example your camera could record 2272*1704 as the actual pixel count resolution and set 72 as the embedded resolution that tells other software (for example photoshop) what the intended use of the picture will be. 72 ppi is the default for web pictures. You can change this in photoshop by going to the "Image" tab & select image size. The window that opens will show you the pixel dimensions i.e. pixel count resolution and the document size & resolution 72. You just change it in your software to 300 for printing. In Photoshop you can change the default to 300 by going "edit", "preferences", "units & rulers" and setting the values for "new document preset resolutions".

So for your camera the embedded resolution is 180 which you can only change in your PC software.

This is a complex subject, I recommend looking at the following web page:

Changeing resolution


On the back of the camera, push "Menu."
A menu screen comes up.

The first option is the one you're looking for:
"Image Size."

UNDER that option, the first sub-option is "8 M," the next is "3:2," the next is "5 M" and so on. That "M" is "Mega Pixels, or "million pixels." The size of the file will be measured in megapixels, and each "pixel" requires 3 Bytes of memory to define it. (A "pixel" is like one tile in a mosaic tile image.)

You change the options and sub-options in the menu by using the round donut-shaped control on the camera back. On the outside of the "donut" there are arrowheads pointing Up, Down, Left and Right. When you push the donut in the spot next to an arrowhead, you go whichever way the arrowhead points. Up goes through the MAIN options, right/left takes you through the SUB-options under the main option.

Change from a lower file size to a higher one by going left and right through the "Image Size" sub-menu. The biggest file size is "8 M" and I suspect the smallest is at the extreme opposite side of the list.

Someone apparently set your camera, maybe before you bought it, to a file size that is as small as possible, so you could fit the maximum number of pictures in the camera. But to get a better image for printing, you need to change to something with more pixels!

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 ....

Canon Rebel xti vs Photoshop!


What you are seeing is the difference between "pixel count resolution" and "embedded resolution". So in your example 2272*1704 is the actual pixel count resolution as recorded by the camera & 72 is the embedded resolution that tells the software (in this case photoshop) what the intended use of the picture will be. 72 ppi is the default for web pictures. You can change this in photoshop by going to the "Image" tab & select image size. The window that opens will show you the pixel dimensions i.e. pixel count resolution and the document size & resolution 72. You just change it to 300 for printing. You can change the default to 300 by going "edit", "preferences", "units & rulers" and setting the values for "new document preset resolutions".
