When I print out my pictures the clarity is really bad

I've tried to print out picture from my camera at home and have it done at a store but everytime the clarity is bad - it's not clear like they used to be. So I was wondering is something going bad or have a possibly changed something I shouldn't have.

Need a manual for a Vivitar Vivicam 8600s


Generally speaking, zooming reduces clarity. This is already a low megapixel camera at 8.1 MP, with a 6X optical zoom. This means that, for anything up to 6 times the resolution, it'll really zoom in by adjusting lenses.

Everything after that (8.5X) will be digital, which will result in noisy (pixelated) pictures.

However, make sure to take a few zoomed pictures and view them on a PC or Mac with an actual monitor. It's possible that the zoomed pictures only look bad on the tiny screen of the camera itself.

Problem with Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ20


The camera won't deface your pictures by scrawling a string of numbers across them. However the date and time (and a lot more) are stored with every picture in its EXIF metadata. Any photo viewing/editing program should be able to display this data. To print this data, please consult the documentation for whatever program you're using to print your pictures. Depending on the program and printer you may print the date on the image, in the margins, or on the back.

Need to resize pictures


The size is going to be based off of clarity per pixel, the higher the MP the more pixels in turn the larger (but more clear) the picture.The best way to keep the clarity would be to resize on your computer, if you have windows, open the picture(s) with PaintStart Menu -> Programs -> Accessories -> Paint
Then after you've opened the picture, do the followingWindows XP -> click "Image" then "Stretch/Skew"Vista/Windows7 -> Click "Resize"Make sure you keep aspect ratio percentages locked or you'll come out looking like a circus image.

Date and time not appear on the pictures


You must have the pictures printed at a Camera Store / Kiosk to have the date imprinted. Very few cams have that feature built in anymore

How do I print the photos I take on my camera?


You can take the card to a store like Walmart, Kmart, etc. or even a photo store and they will print them. Stores like Walmart have a Kodak picture maker machine which allows you to print your own pictures in the store instantly. If you have a fairly good inkjet printer, you can print them yourself at home although, this is probably the most expensive way to do it.

How to set the date time stamp, so that when i print the photo i could see the date and time


I haven't tried this yet, but the manual says it works on compatible photo kiosks:
Print reservations allow you to save printing data (the number of prints and the date and time information) with
the pictures stored on the card.
With print reservation, you can print out pictures easily either at home using a personal DPOF-compatible
printer or at a photo store that supports DPOF. DPOF is a standard format used to record automatic print
information from digital cameras.

Other than that, can you download with time/date (Not the default setting, it has to be selected) to PC, then copy to media & print from that.
Good luck,
Lindy (I need it to work too)

Y NO CLARITY THEN OTHER CAMERAS????


reset camera or try to slow the press down speed during picture taking... if you mash down the shutter button fast, the pictures tend to be less than desirable with any digital camera

Can you write your pics to a CD then take that for printing. I have had same probs with CF cards in my Nikon 8700, any editing of the card can, but not always, prevent the images being found.
