Please see if the mode forr picture is set to normal, Try to select auto mode and then manual mode to see if there is any change.
If you notice that the grains come on in low light, try pictures in good light to confirm. If still bad the camera needs a check for a faulty imager unit./the CCD might be defective.
Take an estimate to decide.

Is there a program to download movies and pictures from my Cannon PowerShot S5IS digital camera?


Yes but you could use a card reader to download your pics and movies to a folder you create on your desktop. From there, you can use programs already on your computer to open them.

Grainy pics


When using sport mode the ISO jumps to 400 or more, and this is very noticeable in the grain of the picture. S3 renders good detail up to ISO 200. My advice: Set ISO to 200 in Tv mode, then set the shutter speed to 400 or something like that using the < > buttons. You have to try the best speed under the light you are. If the light is very good, perhaps you can use ISO 100 and get much better results.

INSIDE PHOTOS ARE DARK AND GRAINY


Regardless of the camera make/model... dark, grainy photos are usually a result of a lighting problem. Looking at the specs for your camera, the flash is only speced for 4m. If you are shooting near or above this you might have trouble. I ended up using an external flash that is triggered by sensing the cameras flash. Pretty inexpensive and pics ar 10x better. Try a local camera shop or B&H Photo (NYC) is where I got mine set up on line.

Low resolution on highest setting


Did you check the ISO setting - a high number there would possibly make the pictures grainy.
Hope that helps.
