Most digital SLR cameras take pictures with an aspect ratio of 2 to 3. (This is based on the size of 35 mm film, where the images were 24 x 36 mm, a 2 to 3 ratio.) That is a different ratio than 8 x 10 inches, which is 4 to 5. There is no way to change the aspect ratio in the camera, so you will have to make sure when you're taking pictures that will be printed on 8 x 10 paper, you leave the processor extra area to crop the portion that won't fit in the 8 x 10 frame.

For information, the 8 x 10 picture became popular when many portrait photographers used 4 x 5 large format film cameras, which obviously will fit perfectly in an 8 x 10 frame without cropping.

Is it possible to use digital zoom and shoot photos in manual mode?


Although your EOS 600D does not support digital zoom, while shooting, the same effect can be reached when the picture is already on the memory card. If you want to zoom in later (Crop) please shoot in RAW (or RAW + JPG) Only then all details will be preserved. Later you then can crop the part you wanted to have in the first place. I know your camera can crop the pictures you want to print from the camera. I'm not sure you also can edit RAW pictures and later save them (cropped) as a jpg.

I'm trying to crop the pictures i'v taken,it zooms in & out but doesnt come up trimming ok?


I found a driver for the s7000 on the fujifilm.com website, but no manual online.

Can you go to a mode where the arrow keys can be used to move the page around for the cropping? That's all I can think of to accomplish the task.

Zooming in and out is ok, but I'm sure you want to move the image around a little bit, or move the borders of the cropping around.

Good luck on this.

Canon Powershot sd1100 printing


Hi Holly, and welcome to FixYa.

Your mom's camera will print directly to the printer if she wants.
Here are the instructions for printing from the camera. (It even tells about how to print more than one picture at a time on a single sheet). Here: http://gdlp01.c-wss.com/gds/0300000808/DPUG15_EN.pdf

And as an added bonus! LOL - Here is the link to the manual from Canon. http://gdlp01.c-wss.com/gds/0300000755/PSSD1100IS_IXUS80IS_CUG_EN.pdf

Hope this helps. Thanks for coming to FixYa and feel free to rate my solution.

The sensor in most digital SLR cameras has an aspect ratio of 2 to 3. This is based on the aspect ratio of the film used in 35mm film SLRs, which was 24 x 36 mm. This works fine when you print on 4 x 6 paper (a 2 to 3 ratio), but not on 8 x 10 (which is a 4 to 5 ratio). Something has to be cropped in order to fit. You can't change the physical size of the sensor in the camera, so you will have to allow for some cropping if you are going to have your images printed on 8 x 10 paper.
For information, the 8 x 10 size became popular when many portrait photographers used large format 4 x 5 cameras. This obviously can fit perfectly on 8 x 10 paper without cropping.

Sizes and their corresponding resolutions


Personally I would select the highest setting offered. In my case, there are 3, good, best & bestus, or maybe its better. That should give you better results. All blurry can mean other things too, like shooting indoors, at night or similar low light situation. And what happens is: camera select a slow shutter speed in order to give you the right exposure or amount of light. And if its using a slower shutter speed - you have to hold the camera steady, otherwise you'll get blurry shots. which I shoot in low light, I'll find something to lean on or some way to brace myself so that I (hopefully) won't get the "blurs" And using the lcd display (instead of viewfinder) may contribute to the blurs as you generally hold the camera out to arms length to view & shoot which makes it difficult or impossible to hold the camera still/steady in that stance.

Developed photo's aren't turning out well


I think it's the photo service. Check and see if there's a cropping option. I use shutterfly.com and if the top of a head is cut off in the preview, I just pick the crop option and change it. The service tries to crop the pictures accurately but sometimes you have to go in and force it to crop the way you want to. I'm sure Walgreens and Walmart's services will both have similar features.
