I have a fujifilm finepix s9000 and if trying to set my pics to high resolution. I have the quality set at 9m f but even when I set it to 9m N it still shows my pictures with a 72dpi. I need higher than...


The DPI refers only to the printed resolution, and that value can be set to any number you like. It has nothing to do with the actual resolution of the photo, and it can be changed without affecting a single pixel in the image.

Cannot find the resolution setting . my photos are not clear when i print them large. i have been told to change the resolution setting but i cannot find it on the sony cybershot dcs-t20 camera


make sure you set your camera at 8M when you take pictures, however when you do this you will not be able to store as many pics on your memory stick, The higher the resolution the clearer and larger you can print. If your Camera is set at 3M then when you print large it will not be as clear. Hope this heps

The pics are downloaded @ 2.25mbs too large


Seems like you want to lower the resolution of your images. This will dramatically reduce the file size.
  1. Press the Func Set Button
  2. Using the Up and Down Arrows, highlight the L (this indicates the image resolution)
  3. Use the Left and Right Arrows, to change the size (largest to smallest): L, M1, M2, M3, S
  4. Then press select to change the resolution.
That should do it! You can find some more information about this in your manual somewhere around page 68. I hope that this helps!

Too low of a resolution???


If this is a new camera, read the setup in the manual and set the camera for higher resolution.
If you don't have the manual there are places on the net to find free user manuals, and even Canon.com.
The menu settings should be easy to find and figure out.

Hey TiffanyJane,
There is no way to change the dpi on a digital camera. What you need to do is set the camera to its highest resolution which is 3264x2448 pixels, and this is referred to as large in your camera. Large resolution should provide prints of high quality up to 11.7x16.5 inches, and should also be able to print to 300dpi. Instructions on how to set your camera to this setting are on page 69 of your camera manual. If you no longer have your manual I have provided a link below to a PDF download of it. I hope this helps!

Resolution


look in the setup screen. Its accessible through the blue F button on the back. Easy cheesy. If shutterfly is getting smaller resolution pics than you are shooting, then your Email client is automatically resizing your pictures to speed up the transfer, you need to turn that feature off.

Poor printing resolution...?!


You can select whatever resolution you want to print at on your Print(er) Setup.

If your Printer is automatically selecting a 72DPI to print at, you may be trying to print a 10X12 pic size or larger by default due to pic file size created when pic was taken in camera with full 7Meg resolution.

Use photo software to proper size the print before printing. If you want a print larger than 5X7, keep in mind the TZ3 begins to have recognizable noise, reduced resolution due to noise, especially in low light indoor or evening/nite outside shots. You can use photo software to improve and size them before printing. Windows Vista has a built-in photoshop type program. Else, I believe your camera comes with one on disk.

Also, read your manual regarding shooting with this camera.

Messed up CD400 resolution


Hi Molly, The 72 ppi figure is merely an arbitrary starting point used by most image editing software. I've known others to use 300 as a default, e.g. Paint Shop Pro last time I looked at it. Why it should have changed I can't tell at this point, unless you've changed your software; but it's not important. The figure is meaningless until you want to *print* your images, and even then it's best to just set print size *without* resampling the image, and let the resolution look after itself until you have a need for very large prints. To see what your camera is capturing, the essential figure you need to be interested in is the images' *pixel dimensions*; and in the case of the CD400 they should be 2272 x 1704 at the camera's full res. setting. (Actually, "resolution" is an unfortunate term, in its popular usage. Resolution really describes how thinly or densely the same pixel count is mapped over the intended physical output size.) Changing the print size *without* resampling the image will cause the resolution figure (72, 300 or whatever else it might be) to change inversely with the print dimensions, but will not change the overall pixel dimensions of 2272 x 1704.

I'm getting really confused with the resolution stuff


The C4000 is a 4 megapixel camera and can produce photos that should produce very nice 8 x 10 photos. 11 x 14 prints may be pushing it a bit. Your cameras should be set for 2048 x 1536 and the .jpg compression should be set to "Super High". Better yet, that camera can produce TIFF format. For photos you plan to print, use the TIFF format. The other half of this process is the printer. Most inkjet printers have a number of settings. Make sure that it is set for photo paper and be sure to use glossy photo paper. If you can print a 8 x 10 print in less than a minute, your printer is not set right. If it seems like it is taking forever, it is set right. .................... Using Photoshop Elements 2: Open your photo into Elements. Click Image, Resize, Image Size Remove the checkmark from "Resample Image" Change resolution to 300. Notice that the width height is about 5 x 7 inches. So if you print that photo at 300 dpi (dots per inch), you will get an outstanding 5 x 7 print. Most inkjet printers produce their very best outputs at 300 dpi. At 200 dpi, the image is still quite good. When you get below 150, you will start to see changes in quality. Now set the Resolution to 200 dpi and notice that the output size has changed to about 8 x 10 inches. Now check to see how it will look on paper. click OK. Click File, Print Preview You can verify that the photo fits on the paper and that the paper is correct (horizontal/vertical). Now print the photo. The next window that opens should let you get to your printer properties and you can verify that you have the printer set for it best settings and that paper is set to photo paper.
