Seriously, one of the things you pay for in a higher-end camera is the speed.

Why does it take so long to show to the photo after I press the shutter button?


The picture displays after the file has finished saving - if the speed of your SD card is slow, it can take quite a while before the picture is displayed. It also takes a while (up to a minute or more) if the shutter speed is low and the picture is mostly black (taking nighttime moon shots for instance).
Try using a better quality (higher speed) SD card.

Why are my photos blurry?


There are only three reasons photos look blurry: poor focus, shaking the cameral during the shot, or trying to take a photo of a fast-moving subject with a slow-speed camera.

You can usually see focus problems on the display before you take the picture, so that doesn't appear to be your issue. On the other hand, movement of camera or subject happens during the shot, so you'll only see that in the completed photo.

Camera movement first. Many cameras today have built-in "anti-shake" circuits that sense when you're the problem -- you're moving the camera during the shot. The best ones are very good at eliminating shakiness, but even they can't overcome large movement, as when you mash down the button to take the picture. If yours doesn't have anti-shake, or it isn't very well implemented, you'll just have to practice pushing gently on the button and holding the camera very still until it finishes the shot.

As for subject movement -- well, more sophisticated cameras offer ways to capture kids bouncing on a trampoline with a minimum of blurriness, but it's always going to be a problem.

If you don't want to switch to one of the more sophisticated cameras from a major brand, practice holding the camera steady during every shot and avoid shooting fast-moving subjects.

Pro photographers avoid this very common problem by always using a diskreader. You've found that this method works very well so stop worrying and enjoy. As far as the problem with the pics on the internal memory of the camera, go into the menu and find "copy". It will give you the option to copy the internal memory to a memory card.

Have pictures in computer ho do i get them to facebook ?


You post pictures the same way you post statuses. However, instead of selecting status, try to click on "Photo" located above the text box where you write your status. After clicking "Photo" 3 options will appear below it--- Upload a Photo, Take a Photo, and Create an Album.
If you only want to post one picture, choose "Upload a Photo", then click the button "Choose File". Select the photo you want to upload then wait for the upload to finish.
If you have several photos to upload select "Create an Album". A pop-up will appear... Just click "Select Photos"... Then select all the pictures simultaneously that you'd like to upload into an album. After selecting, fill in the album details and wait for the upload to finish.

I have several dust particles on the inside of the lens, betweeen the first and second glass elements of the lens. This causes dark "shadow spots" to appear on wider angle photos. How can I...


Hi there.
Sadly, point-and-shoot cameras are not designed to be disassembled and then reassembled easily. Therefore your best option is to take it to a store that specializes in camera repair.

Hey my Olympus 230 digital camera seems to have deleted my photos, a message appeared on the camera "picture error", just wondering how I can get them back??


If you are using a memory card, take no more pics until you've recovered the photos, take the card out of the camera. This is to reduce the chance of you overwriting some of your "lost" photos. There are many good freeware photo recovery software options that are available to help you recover your photos. This blog article reviews and outlines several of the better ones.
All the download links listed in the article are through CNET, primarily to verify that these are malware free software, and to give you a chance to read user reviews on the software before downloading.
