Question about Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ7 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Re-Sized Photos are Grainy

When I upload the photos from my camera to my computer they are very large. I resize them to approx. 4" X 6" before I send them to the developer. When I pick them up at the developer they are all grainy and pale. They do not look like that originally, so I'm wondering what is going wrong. One time I sent the photos without resizing them, and they were even worse!

Any ideas?

Hi,

This camera takes pictures with a Ppi of 72. That is why the pictures look huge on the screen. To get good quality prints you need to have at least 200 ppi, or even better, 300 ppi.

Or, the contrast of the pictures may be to low. I have an FZ7 too, and I always tweak the contrast and color saturation before outputting.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
1. images straight from the FZ7 are generally low in contrast.

2. Pictures that are low in contrast might not look too bad on screen, but when they are printed they will look slightly greyish.

3. Low ppi pictures look fuzzy in print.

Maybe you can post a sample original picture??

I need a program to resize photos before posting them on facebook


You can download any free image editing software such as Irfan View or Picasa. Otherwise, shoot at a lower resolution (all digital cameras allow you to shoot at a lower resolution and quality) so that the images are not very large.

My pictures are too large when downloaded onto laptop. How can I change the setting so that I can mail to friends? I never had a problem until my son borrowed the camera & altered it!


You can resize the images. For this you can use Irfanview or Paint. Or click here to visit a website which will allows you to upload and resize photos.it allows you to resize one by one.

If you want to use Paint, right-click on any photo you wish to resize and click edit. Press Ctrl+A to select the complete photo. Then drag the sliders wher you can see the end of the photo. Or

  1. Open the image file you wish to edit.
  2. Click the Image Menu at the top and select Stretch/Skew Image.
  3. Choose a percentage figure to resize the image. To avoid distortion, choose the same percentage for the horizontal and vertical stretch.
  4. Click OK.
  5. Once you have the desired size, click File, then Save or click Save As... to prevent overwriting the original image.

It would be better if you first downloaded your photos to your computer and then uploading them to myspace.If the resolution of your photo is very high its size will be large and depending on your net connection speed you ll have issues if the upload speed is small.an option to this , is take photos which are to be sent at lower resolutions as it ll be easier to post them, then.

Picture file sizes...


Hi Gixerjames

The short answer is NO, I think, unless you set the camera to take small file sized images.
What do you mean by small by the way? Sounds like you have a specific purpose in mind but remember small "file sizes = less detail".

Is resizing a big chore - there are plenty of freeware utilities out there to do batch resizing if you find resizing tedious for all you images.

Pictures to large to sen d


You can use PhotoShop (or some other photo software) to re-size your photos for the internet. If you are sending a photo that is 700kb (for example), then it can be printed out on large scale. You can downsize it to about 45kb before you send it, by selecting "small size" and "low quality". Or, if you don't want to resize it, whoever is printing it on the other end can resize it for the printer, using their photo printer software.

Another option would be to shoot the photo in a smaller format. You can do that by pressing the FUNC button located on the back of the camera, then go to the last option at the bottom left of the function screen. You will be given the option of L, M1, M2, S. Select "S", and it will shoot smaller photo files.

Photo size too large for email


You can do that in 2 ways.

1) Shoot the photo or video in reduced size (less quality). This can achieved by adjusting the settings in your camera.

2) Use 3rd party software like photoshop or Microsoft paint to manually reduce the size using it.

The size of the images are too big


Use your favourite image editing software in Vista. Or use the software that came on CD with your camera (if it is not the one that runs on XP only). Anyway as alternative solution you can either shoot photos in lower resolutions (1Mpix for example) and then the files won't be so big. But you will have only the small photo and no large one. Or shoot as usual, then switch camera to "play" mode and when viewing images on camera, there is a menu option to resize the images - you can resize them to 1Mpix for example. In the meantime search web for some free image editing software for Vista.
