You can download the manuals here. To get the smallest size image files for emailing, set the compression to Normal, and the image size to Small (see pages 27 through 29 of the Advanced Manual).

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!

What is the best photo size for good quality digital photo prints from my Samsung tl205?


I always recommend setting the camera to take the largest size format at the highest quality or "resolution" settings the camera offers.

Using the largest size and resolution combination provides images with the most detail available in your camera. It will provide excellent results for standard 4 x 6 prints and you'll be glad you chose the larger format and resolution if you wish to edit, crop & enlarge any of your shots. At one point, you'll take a picture that you're going to want to enlarge and frame - but when you have your camera set for smaller images at lower resolutions, jagged edges and pixelization begins to appear in the image. The more you enlarge - the more noticeable it becomes. You see this for yourself by taking a picture of something with small size and low resolution settings and another picture of the exact same scene but with the largest size and highest resolution settings. Display the pictures on your computer screen and enlarge them both to 200% or more. Compare the details and edges of both pictures at the same percentage on enlargement to see what I'm describing.

The size of your pictures has no bearing on the cost of printing them. The only downside is the fact that your memory card will hold fewer pictures. This means you'll need to buy additional or larger memory cards if you find that you take too many pictures between the times you transfer to your computer.

I hope this helps & good luck! Please rate my reply. Thank you.

Emailing photos


Hi,

I would still take them at a high resolution. That way if you would want to make prints they would be of good quality.

If you want to email them the best thing to do is to download them and then open the pictures you want to email with whatever editing program you have and use the resize options. If you resize them to around 400 X 600 or even 600 X 800 pixels they should be a good size to email. Once you resize them use the Save as... menu option to put a suffix on it.

For example, if you had a picture named Image_0001. Open it at full size. Resize it. Then select Save as... and name it Image_001_small or Image_001_email. That leaves the original intact and now allows you to attach the smaller one to an email that is a nice size.

Hope this helps.

Thanks for using Fixya.

Pixel problem, all pictures taken have poor pixel resolution


It sounds like you set the file settings to a small file size - perhaps in order to get more photos on a single memory card. You need to change the setting to the largest file size possible, at the highest quality. The steps for this will be in your manual. If you need detailed instructions and don't have your manual, let me know and I'll lookup your manual online.

I have a panasonic DMC-Fz8 12x optical zoom camera. How can I adjust the resolution? When I get my pictures developed they are low resolution; you can see the pixels.


Hi!

You need to change the PRINT SIZE and image QUALITY to have have a better picture. Try these:

Press 3049231.jpg then select aa5a871.jpg(Picture Size) . You will be given an option for the number of

pixels - ranges from 0.3 to 7 Megapixel. For better print quality, select 7M.

Next thing that you need to change is the Quality. You need to go back to Menu then 4e59df3.jpg. These are your options for quality:

I hope that helps.

Good luck and have a nice day!

Resolution


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.
