I'm getting really confused with the resolution stuff

I've had my camera for 2 years. I'm wanting to experiment more and more. I'm getting really confused with the resolution stuff. I've played around a bit and tried to have a couple pics enlarged. they were nice but not super. I'm messing around with PSE2 now that really messed me up. The pics i want are 8X10 and 11X14 where do i need to have my resolution set. is there any good (i need simple) literature out there thank you ahead of time.

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.

Why won't My Nikon coolpix s4000 won't focus properly?


In many cases, especially when the light is low the camera WILL get confused and it will not be able to focus in low light. In most cases what you pay for is how well it will focus in dim light. This camera does get confused easily. In many cases I have moved the camera so it sees something near what I want to photograph and push half way and the move the camera back and take the photo.

My camera has the shaking problem, but I've never taken apart a camera so I was wondering if you had any more details on what to do? how to take it apart, what glue to use, etc.


You didn't say the make and model of the camera. (I'll bet it's a Sony if it has a shaking problem). Since you have absolutely no experience at taking apart a camera and no specialized tools or, for that matter, what to look for, I would advise against trying (unless you just want the experience and don't really care if the camera works afterwards). (Just telling us you want to use glue inside is scary!)

Pictures are not real clear.


It's probably the settings to blame if you get bad pictures even in bright sunlight (ur cam has a max resolution of 10m.pixels which accounts for very good quality pictures) . You should get accustomed with the settings of your cam if you want to get good results with it. Playing around with the settings without *any* fear will help you with that. but before you start fiddling, Follow these steps to make sure you don't run into any trouble:
  • First of all, find the setting that goes 'restore factory defaults' or 'reset' or similar. with this, you can 'reset the settings back to how they were when you bought the cam' if you mess up anything.
  • If you already have any important pictures in the cam, move them to your computer just in case you delete them by mistake.
Now you can play with the settings to your hearts content :D. This website: ( http://digital-photography-school.com ) will help you decipher any confusing technical terms. they also provide tips on how to get great photos. Good luck and happy shooting!

Picture Resolution?


Picture resolution is the total number of pixels in your picture (those little colored dots when you look really really close). It's expressed in megapixels and is simply the product of the number of pixels in the width of the picture times the number of pixels in the length. For example, a 7.1 MP camera takes images with a resolution of 3072 pixels width by 2304 pixels height ( 7.1MP = 3072 x 2304).

Pixels/inch refers to the resolution of your picture on some external viewing device (printer, computer monitor, etc...). It has nothing to do with the settings on your camera. It's equal to the number of pixels in the picture divided by the width of the displayed picture on the device. For example, an 8 x 10" printed picture has a width of 10 inches. If I wanted to take full advantage of my 7.1 MP picture by printing it as an 8x10, then I should look for a printer capable of printing 707,789 pixels/inch. Now I'm pretty sure there's no printer currently capable of this feat.

The example above shows that the rush for more megapixels is not necessarily where consumers or camera manufacturers should be focusing their attention. Most people really only need something around the 3MP range for printouts or display on their monitor screens.

Optio S4i will not turn on?


Your problem is part of the dreaded A90 error code these cameras get. My camera had this last year and updated firmware cured it till this month when my wife let the battery go dead and the problem returned, but firmware update won't fix it this time around.Go to Pentax site and download new firmware for camera. Follow instructions that come from Pentax on the download to install software. Its pretty easy. These are cheap cameras as far as Pentax is concerned. They only work for about 2 years, based on other users and my experience. Good luck

Resolution


Resolution refers to the number of pixels or dots per inch (dpi) in an image. Basically, the more dpi that a photo has, the sharper an image is. High resolution is important if you are going to be printing photos (look for a photo-capable printer that has a high resolution, say 4800 x 1200 dpi). If you’ll be e-mailing your images, you may want to save your photos at a lower resolution for faster file downloads. Digital camera resolution is measured in megapixels (1MP equals one million pixels), so the higher the MP capacity a camera has, the higher quality of images it will produce. Generally you can take good photographs with a 3MP camera.
