    I sent a post right away before - hope this one makes it! Anyway, I had said, 'thanks, but no cigar!' the pics still come in in multiples...only this last batch. I am wondering if it's a setting on my camera? I really like the google program...thanks for your help!

  • rjahoo7 May 09, 2008

    WN! Did I ever tell you you're my hero?? *smile* There IS a a 1m on the lcd! If I take it off will it go back to just one? Thank you so much!

  • rjahoo7 May 09, 2008

    WN: I tried to reimport them with the lcd off but they are still multiplied...any suggestions?



    Thank you for all of your help!

Greetings,
I would try using another software program to do the import. Try this free one from Google:
http://picasa.google.com/
It is called Picasa and it is very user friendly and has basic editing capabilities.
Take Care,

    Are you still having the same problem after trying this solution?

    The only other thing I can think of is that your camera is set up in multi burst mode. Is there a 1m with a box touching it displayed on the cameras lcd?

  • Anonymous May 09, 2008

    Ok so multi burst mode is on. Sorry, I should have thought of that in the first place. So turning off the lcd will not solve the problem, you have to reset the mode.
    You will need to go into the menu and choose shooting menu. Then choose the option that says interval and change it until it says normal. If this worked please change my rating to a FixYa if you can, it helps my ranking.

    There is no way to undo the duplicates on the card that you have already taken. Just download them to your computer and format the card.

When I go to view my photos in the camera roll it shows that ther are 2358 photos but they will not display. Download, attachments and facebook photos will display. Could you please help me?


I just addressed this with my wife. Each of these mobile devices utilize file formats that give them an advantage to save, edit, transmit, conserve data space, etc with in their own product line. They are not universal. ie my wife tried to save a bunch of iphone pics from facebook to a disc so she could print off disc at store. The file format was .php. and not a single pic was usable yet the file said they were there. They weren't. I repeated all of her work and saved them all to a new directory as a .jpeg file. To do this, instead of a right click then save as; I double clicked the picture which opened it in a photo editor then right clicked hit save as then changed the file format to .jpeg instead of .php.Could not have been done without a laptop. I don't care how much my techie son says, mobile devices do not do as much as laptops. I hate mobile devices. Hope you found this helpful.

Wont upload photos to computer


If you are using the USB connection cable that came with the camera, instead try using an SD card USB adapter for your computer and importing the photos using that.

Why can't I upload my photos from my finepix s1500 onto my mac? It opened the files in my iphoto but they showed up as blank boxes and "Error downloading images - iPhoto cannot import your photos...


Is this a new problem - that is, did it work in the past? Are you trying to import jpeg or raw?

First thing is to see if it is iphoto or the camera that has a problem.

Try uploading the images to another computer (try a PC - not that it is better, but PC is different). If the images can be seen & read there, the images are likely fine and iphoto may need an upgrade to read the format from the finepix s1500. Alternately, try copying the photos from your memory card (use a memory card reader) to your hard disk. See if another application can see the images (even use a word processor to import image), or e-mail the image to yourself and then use your web-browser to see the image.

If the camera images can't be read by multiple computers/multiple readers, then it may be that your memory card is corrupted.

I have a new Canon Powershot SD780IS. I took a movie with it, in multiple parts. The smaller segments will download from the camera to my PC very nicely, but the biggest (and most important) piece will...


Instead of downloading from the camera, try using a card reader to download it. The use of an inexpensive card reader is a much easier, faster, and less error prone way to download your photos and videos. In fact there are several important reasons discussed in this blog article link for using a card reader vice downloading from the camera. USB Card readers are also very inexpensive these day, with cost virtually not an issue.

Photo brightness


Hello Jrmb,
I would like to know what mode are you clicking these photos in.. because overexposure is due to either slow shutter speeds or large aperture. Try setting the camre mode according to the surrounding light conditions.. for example, no need of flash when you are clicking pictures in broad day light, instead of setting the camera on Auto mode, try using Portrait mode for short distance (5 to 6 meters away) objects etc..
Let me know if that fixes the issue.

And important .. Do not forget to rate the solution :)

Thanks and Regards,
Srinivas

Formatted photos


Hey midgykins,
There are numerous photo recovery programs available for either sale or for free over the internet. I would search the internet for photo recovery program and you should get multiple results. I would try the free programs first because if one program doesn't recover your images it doesn't mean another program wouldn't work. I hope this helps!

Sincerely,
Allan

Have you tried Picasa? Free from Google. Does your PC see it as a drive? Are there proprietary drivers for the camera? Try using a USB hub instead of the USB ports on the PC.

Black screen when viewing photos taken


When the picture does not display - do you see the normal text and icons that you would expect to see? Or, is the screen completely blank?
