Ratio on wide screen not correct photos appear "squashed"


Your screen resolution is not correct for the monitor. On Win XP just right click anywhere on screen background, and choose properties from the pop up men. In the tabbed window that opens choose the "settings" tab where you'll see a slider bar for "resolution". Try different levels till you find one you like, where round object appear round and not oval. In Vista or Win 7 when you right click the background, choose "personalize" and locate the resolution settings there.

Right click on the desktop in a clear area and scroll down to either resolution or properties. From this you can experiment with resolution settings to see which setting best fits your display. After each setting change the computer will ask you if you want to accept the changes, it will give you 15 seconds for each change.

The monitor screen has a wide diagonal streak showing when you are looking through it to take a picture. , Does not fill out the screen. Do I have a setting somewhere to fix this?


Take a look at the front of the lens to make sure that your automatic lens cover is opening fully. If not, giv it a gentle nudge with your fingernail to see if it snaps open. If this was the problem, and it keeps happening, please see this link for other corrective actions.

I have a new flat panel 21" monitor which I love. However, photos which I took of taller objects and some Windows games appear too wide and not tall enough. The same thing can happen on the new TV's when...


It sounds like you have the resolution set wrong. Typical monitors are setup with a 4:3 aspect ratio. With the widescreen monitors, you have to get a resolution that will support the 16:9 I purchased a dell monitor a while back that was the same way, and I just went in and made sure I had it set for the 16:9 aspect ratio.

Right click on the desktop, go to Personalize(Vista) or Options, and then system tab, and slide the bar along the resolution ruler to the correct size. Play with them a little too, to make sure it fits you best. Some of the higher resolutions will show more screen space, but will have smaller text.

Pictures are stretched


change the screen resolution to different proportions, sounds like you may have set to 1208 x 768 a more appropriate setting would be 1024 x 768 however switch between the different settings until you find one you like
