The menus and terminology vary a bit between makes of camera but this example is for the popular Panasonic range of Lumix cameras:- 1. Switch the camera to Manual Mode - 2. Press the Menu button - 3. Navigate with the 'go up' or 'go down' buttons to 'Col.Effect' - 4. Use the 'go right' button to move the cursor right - 5. A list appears with 'Sepia' as one of the options - 6. Use the 'go down' button to move the setting down to 'Sepia' - 7. Click the central 'Set' button once to select the 'Sepia' setting and return to the 'Menu' - 8. Press 'Set' button again to exit from Menu and start snapping in Sepia!!
Press the FUNC/SET button, then use the up/down buttons to select the second item on the menu. Press left/right or turn the command dial to choose. Your choices include SE for sepia-toned and BW for black&white. For the full list of choices, look under "Changing the Tone of an Image (My Colors)" in the manual (it's on page 76 in my copy).
Having said that, it's usually better to do the conversion on a computer. You get more control over brightness, contrast, and so on that way. And, if that once-in-a-lifetime thing happens, you have the original in color.
3. In the menu that comes up, scroll with the up and down buttons until a menu item named "COL. EFFECT" is highlighted. Now press the right arrow button, and select the desired color effect. (Cool, warm, sepia, B&W).
Use the am and fm buttons to increase or decrease the numbers and use the seek up button to move to the next number and then press and hold the seek button to enter the code ( these buttons are on the bottom right hand side of the fascia)
Olympus has its own way of showing the resolution settings. It is OK once you get used to it.
Turn the Camera On.
(On the back you will see an OK button surrounded by 4 arrows.)
Press the OK button to bring up the menu.
Press the left arrow button
That should bring up a choice of:
TIFF, SHQ, HQ, SQ1, SQ2
Use the up/down arrow buttons to move the cursor to SQ1
Then press the right arrow button
That should bring up a choice of settings.
Use the up/down buttons to select a setting.
I suggest you select 2048x1536 (which is 3 megapixels)
Then press the OK button.
You should think about getting a memory card with a greater capacity.
You can select several options via the EDIT tab in the MODE MENU, when the camera is set in PLAYBACK MODE. These include adding a frame to the image, Black and White, and Sepia tone, and there is also an option to “resize” the image to 640 x 480 pixels or 320 x 240 pixels in order to have a larger file for printing and a smaller size for emailing. When using any of these features the camera will display the image in B&W, or Sepia and if you press OK a copy of the image is produced in B&W or Sepia, which ensures that your original full color image is also kept .In the case of adding a decorative frame, after selecting your choice of a frame, when pressing the OK button the camera’s LCD screen will display the options of creating a new file with the frame on it or canceling the frame option. When you select “NEW FILE” you are creating a copy of the image with the frame around it, and the camera is also keeping your original image file.
