Question about Canon PowerShot S5 IS Digital Camera

1 Answer

The flip out viewer has stopped showing the picture view. It still shows the photos in playback. One moment it was working. The next time I used the camera the screen was dark.

How do I get the Kodak EasyShareM550 Date and Time to show up on the photos. I found the setting for the date and time, but cannot find the setting to turn it on or off.


I'm afraid you want something the camera can't. The dat and time is saved in the picture in the EXIF data. Once on the computer or in a viewer, you will be able to see when the picture was made and if your printer program can use the EXIF data to put the date and or the time in the same frame, you could print it in the picture too. Bur showing it on the picture in one view will not be possible.

How to edit picture?


Hi

You don't say which operating system you are using.

Photo Editing requires Photo Editing Software.

To do basic photo editing (cropping, rotating, flipping, adjust brightness, adjust contrast, adjust image size, adjust colo(u)r, adjust exposure, adjust size, adjust red eye) you can use free, built-in software that comes bundled with Windows and Microsoft Office such as: Paint, Microsoft Picture Viewer and Windows Photo Gallery.

In increasing order of editing functions:

Windows Photo Gallery: Fix > Auto Adjust, Adjust Exposure, Adjust Colour, Crop Picture, Fix Red Eye

Microsoft Office Picture Viewer: Picture > Brightness & Contrast, Colour, Crop, Rotate, Flip, Red Eye Removal, Resize, Compress.

Paint: Image > Flip/Rotate, Resize/Skew, Crop, Invert Colours, Adjust Attributes, Clear Image, Opaque.

In Paint you can also use additional tools to manipulate the image or add or delete shapes, text and colour (with a selection of writing or drawing implements): Free Form Select, Select, Fill with Colour, Magnifier, Brush, Text, Curve, Polygon, Rounded Rectangle, Ellipse, Rectangle, Line, Airbrush, Pencil, Pick Colour, Eraser/Colour Eraser.

In Windows Photo Gallery you can view and edit the same image in either of these 3 programs by clicking Open.

For more advanced photo editing, you can use the bundled software that comes with digital cameras such as:

Adobe Photoshop Elements

ACDSee

Picasa

Photo Studio

For more advanced, professional standard photo editing you must buy expensive Photo Ediiting and Graphic Design software such as:

Adobe Photoshop

Adobe LightRoom

Adobe Illustrator

Adobe InDesign

CorelDRAW

Corel Painter


I hope this helps.

After I take picture, the picture is captured & shown but when I try to view,(by pressing playback) it displays 'Cannot playback Image' with a big question mark. When I downloaded & tried to view...


Check to make sure that you did not accidentally change image format from jpg to crw(camera raw). Your camera lcd will only display jpg files and you need special software to view raw files on the pc.

No image on the viewer; no image being recorded.


If your Canon A80 camera shows previously stored images of memory card in playback mode but does not show live view in camera mode to take fresh picture then ccd imager chip got defective and need to be replaced.
Local camera repair shop will help you to replace ccd imager chip because camera will take apart in detail and soldering work is needed.
Thanks.

My pictures are out of order. how can i fix that?


First, are you trying to view the photos on your camera, or is this after you've downloaded them onto your computer?

I took a look at my Cyber-Shot and it looks like it sorts photos strictly by the numbering sequence, not by date. I couldn't find a way to prioritize it to view by date in the playback menus either. Have you tried viewing them in index mode? You can do this by pushing the "Home" button while in playback mode. From there you can pick either single, index or slide show mode. If you have already tried this, do the photos still show up out of sequence?

If you are trying to view your photos on your computer, it's a simple fix, and it's only slightly different from Mac to PC. When you have the folder open containing all the photo files, simply click on the field at the top of the columns that you want to view them by, i.e., "file size", "file type", "date modified", etc.

I cant get the photo viewer to pull up my pictures.


Use the "Extract" button in WinZip to move the picture files to a temporary folder on your computer. Once you do that, Photo Viewer should see them. Good luck!

I have a Radio Shack 63-1078 Digital Photo Viewer


Figured it out, photos need to be saved in a sub-folder of DCIM into the 100MEDIA folder to be viewed. I am now trying to figure out how to save Snapfish photos. thanks.

I just got one of these and was having the same problem. What you have to do is create a folder within the DCIM folder on the memory card (you can name it 100Media). The photos have to go into the 100media folder. Good LUCK.
