Software required in order to store photos

Is additional software required in order to store photos and photo information? I was surprised that only a viewing program was included. Is there a way to save photo information without a special program?

Re: Software required in order to store photos

Except that the WinXP viewer only gives you the most basic of the EXIF information. It will not tell you, for example, the White Balance used (Auto, Daylight, Cloudy, etc) or if you were in Manual focus mode and a couple of other tidbits useful for figuring out what works and what doesn't.

If you've got WinXP, you don't need any software to view EXIF data. Just right click on an image > properties > summary tab > advanced

Re: Software required in order to store photos

If you are using WinXP a window will pop up when you have plugged the camera in via USB and turned the power on. The window will ask how you want to handle future USB connection of the camera. Ensure you pick "open to a folder" or something like that. After that everytime you connect the camera it simply treats it like another hard drive and you can browse the folders on the SD card in the camera. Select all, copy, and then paste to a folder on your main hard drive or wherever. OR select all and drag and drop. You don't need the SD software they supply. The supplied Photobase4 is useful for rotating images taken in portrait mode. You may want to download this EXIF viewer as it is far far superior to anything supplied by Panasonic.

I accidentally reformatted by digital camera, thus deleting my pictures. can i recover them?


Yes-- DO NOT take any additional photos with this card or write any additional information to the card at all, or you will permanently overwrite the photos. Lock the card by sliding the "lock" tab on the side of the SD card.
You can use an "undelete" utility to recover the photos. Some camera shops or computer shops may be able to provide this service to you.
(Reformatting the card will make the card appear to have 0 photos stored, but it will not actually erase the information completely, so this specialized software can often times recover your images.)
Good luck!

I accidentally deleted all my picures from my memory card. How can I retrieve these photos?


You can retrieve those photos & if you want to maximize chances of memory card files recovery, the first thing you should do is immediately stop taking more photos or videos (with your current camera memory card) in case partial files are overwritten.

Then connect the camera (memory card) to a PC or Mac which has install a data recovery tool, check this site Digital Camera Data Recovery for a list of good and tested recovery software.

Hope you good luck! Merry Christmas!

I have a panasonic lumix camera. I wonder how i can print the date on the photo?


To print the date
You can set/cancel the printing with the
recorded date by pressing the [DISPLAY]
button after setting the number of prints.
The date print icon [ ] appears.

•When using the software “SD Viewer for
DSC” in the CD-ROM (supplied), you can
print pictures with the date by setting the
position on the print preview screen. For
details, refer to the separate operating
instructions about PC connection.
•When you go to a photo studio for digital
printing, be sure to order the printing of
the date additionally if required.

When im viewing the photos ive taken i get a 'file error' on the screen......why?


I need more information in order to help you.
What software are you using, and where are the pictures located? If you have not yet transferred them to your computer, the application may not be able to access them fast enough, and could result in this error.
Transfer first, try again from the local drive.
If that does not work, please include additional information including the software in use, location of images, file formats, and platform and OS you are on (PC, Mac, etc.).
