The closest you'll come with this camera (and the smallest available) is the "TV screen" mode, which produces pictures that are 640 by 480. The next larger size is "PC screen" which produces pictures that are 1024 by 768.

SOURCE: my pictures come out too small when downloaded!!

Instead of going to print size, you need to head to the quality tab of your camera. Here you will find the option for 640 x 480. This size is only good though for email quality. If you want a higher quality for printing images, you need to move that resolution up.

TIP: I myself have a casio camera and i take all my pictures at the highest availible quality. You can always reduce the file size on your computer, but you can never add quality. While it may take more space on my card, it is like the old saying about dressing warmly... you can always peel layers off....

SOURCE: Aperture priority and image size

Auto and the other settings each have an independent image size that the camera remembers. You need to set the image size for AP. Go to AP mode and press FUNC. The image size should show up in the left menu (it may say L, M1, M2, S, standing for Large, Medium, and Small, resolution settings). Select it and choose a different size that you'd prefer (believe that you want L). Then press FUNC again to exit the menu.

SOURCE: 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.

My new lg 3d tv is closng on top bottom and sides is there anything i can do to cure the problem


Could you provide more information? What do you mean when you say, "closing?" Do you mean there is a black band around the picture? If so that means the original picture is recorded at a lower pixel density than your TV will display.
In the past most TV program signals provided a picture dimensions (in computer standards) very roughly 600 pixels wide by 400 pixels tall. What this means is that a picture of that pixel size will display as a small, squarish image slightly wider than it is tall on a (now) standard 1080p LCD television--which produces an image 1920 pixels wide by 1080 pixels high.
That would be nearly unwatchable (picture too small) except for the fact that most TVs compensate for the relatively small size of "standard definition TV (SD TV, as opposed to HDTV) by enlarging the image so that the top and bottom edges of the picture touch the top and bottom of the TV screen. This will leave black bands on either side of the picture. Some LCD TVs will automatically stretch BOTH dimensions of the image, which yields a distorted, "sqaushed" image.
All my comments above apply to both standard LCD and 3D-LCD TVs, by the way.

How can I email the pictures? Do I need an easyshare special something or is it through wifi? Someone plz help!!! Thank you!


This is an 8.2gig camera so pictures right out of the camera are to big in file size to e-mail.
A lot has to depending on where you have the quality set on the camera. Are the pictures you want to sent already taken or is this something that you are going to shoot then send. If the pictures have already been taken you need some type of imaging program to reduce the size of the file. Most common (photo industry standard is Photoshop) saying that most computer programing today has some type of image programing but life would be so much easier if you had the image software loaded that came with the camera. Mac or PC today's e-mail can handle an image that is 680 pixels on the long side at 72 dpi High speed sending and receiving can handle 1200 on the long side at 72dpi. Okay going forward if the pictures have not been made yet you can "de-tune" your camera to produce an image right out of the camera at 1280x960 through the image quality set up in camera.

I HAVE TRIED USING gimp 2.6.11 for Windows TO TRANSFORM A RECTANGULAR IMAGE OF ABOUT 1.34 mega bytes TO A SQUARE OF AT EXACTLY 600*600 PIXELS AND FILE SIZE OF NOT MORE THAN 240 kilo bytes WITHOUT...


When you click save as and click on save on the bottom of the window after you give it a name and extension you need to click on SHOW PREVIEW in window. Move everything out of the way so you can see the image and slowly move that quality bar to the left and reduce the quality till you're size is within the limit. You can also click on sub-sampling and reduce it to 2x2,1x1,1x1.

Scanning problem with Epson/Perfection 4490. Husband scanned something at 3600 dpi and can't reset size. Think pixel levels are too high now to scan and submit pix on ebay and also image that shows up on...


It sounds like your husband chose full scan mode in Epson Scan, the software that comes with the scanner.
To change this:
1. In the top right corner, change the mode to Professional Mode.
2. In the dialog box you will see a resolution selection area.
3. Change the resolution to 300 dpi for Web/Ebay pictures.

Another solution is to change the pictures using a program called Irfanview. It is free. You can open a picture and under the menu item Image, slect Resize. The pixel size of 640 width is good for Ebay.is program.

Need to get scanned photos to between 300 and 600 dpi


What I saw first off is that although the resolution indicates 96 DPI, the file size itself between the 2 examples are drastically different. You are putting raster images into MS Word for publication work, and that is a NO NO. Word was not created for any kind of high resolution printing. It's a glorified text editor that people seem to think is an option for printing. YOU WILL NEVER GET 300 or 600 DPI images out of Word. Ever.
To create your project for printing, you need to use software more suited for the task. InDesign and Quark are examples, but they are very expensive. In my opinion, Publisher would be better for this kind of project and I hate myself for saying that.
Talk to your Printer, find out his specifications for Applications and Linescreen for Printing. The minimum requirement is 280 DPI, but if the image is placed at 100%, 600 DPI is overkill.
Oh, and try to never scan a scan... you are looking for trouble... a little thing called a Moiré pattern comes into play, and it will make you images print NASTY!
I could go on about your post all day long, but if there is anything else I didn't explain, please post again.

Taking a smaller image from S80


In picture-taking mode, hit the Func Set button. You will see menus of options along the left side and bottom of the display. Tap the bottom of the scroll ring (the ring around the Func Set button) until the bottom option of the left menu is highlighted in red. This option sets the image size of the pictures you are taking. Change this size by rotating the scroll wheel. The 5 options are Large, Medium1, Medium2, Medium3, and Small. The image size in pixels is displayed above the bottom menu as you switch between sizes. When finished, hit Func Set again.

If there any way to get a properly aligned image when recording a document or some other rectangular subject that is not straight?


When the camera is at an angle to a business card, document, whiteboard, or other rectangular subject, one side of the subject in the recorded image may appear longer than the side opposite from it. This is called "keystoning," which is caused by the difference in distance from the camera lens to each side of the subject. The side of the subject that is closer to the camera looks longer and the side further from the camera looks shorter. Using the camera's Business Shot Mode automatically eliminates keystoning and gives a normal shape to rectangular subjects. Though the Business Shot Mode is able to eliminate the effects of moderate keystoning, certain conditions may make automatic keystone correction impossible. Also note that the maximum Business Shot Mode image size is 1600 x 1200 pixels. If you have the camera configured to record larger size images, recording with the Business Shot Mode will produce a 1600 x 1200 size image. When the camera is configured to record images smaller than 1600 x 1200 pixels, the Business Shot Mode will produce images in accordance with the currently specified image size.
