Click the menu button (it's at the bottom right corner of the camera beside the trash can (delete) button.
Use the arrow keys to select Image size
Click the ok button
use the arrow keys to select your desired mp size
Click ok
Click the menu button and you're done

Oh yeah make sure the camera is turned on and set to Scene, A or P ( the dial at the top) to do this

Hope this helps :D

Trying to upload pix from camera to *anything* using wifi but "wifi networks" is stuck: "off", and won't let me highlight to change it to "on". Help!


First, have you reviewed the manual (linked below if you lost yours)? Read the Wi-Fi section from Page 107 to 110 to see if you are setting up correctly. Do not forget to get the IOS or Android software for your device, either (#2 Page 107)!

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!

I have a Kodak Easy Share C310. It keeps saying that the internal memory card is full. The card is the camera is 200 photos yet it is only showing the original 16! Thanks, Kathy D


"internal memory card is full" There is no more space in the camera's internal memory. Your camera has 16 MB of internal memory. The number of pictures you can store depends on the Picture Size setting you have selected on your camera.The following are approximate number of pictures you can take at each setting: 4.0 MP: 16 pictures 3.1 MP: 18 pictures 2.8 MP: 20 pictures 2.1 MP: 29 pictures 1.1 MP: 48 pictures Internal Memory?the camera always uses internal memory, even if a card is installed. Auto (default)?the camera uses the card if one is in the camera. If not, the camera uses internal memory Image Storage Choose a storage location for pictures and videos. To correct the issue your getting follow this steps: 1.Press the Menu button. 2.Press to highlight the setting you wish to change, then press the OK button. - The settings you need to look for is Image Storage 3.Choose an option, then press the OK button. - The option you need to choose is Auto the camera uses the card if one is in the camera. 4.Press the Menu button to exit.

unless your camera was set to less than 1mp your pics would print fine even at 1 or 2 mp at 4x6 size-this may not be the problem-go into your menu and you can change the resolution-if pics are still messed up tell me what they look like and i'll try to help or send me samples
