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?

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

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.

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.

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 have the following message and I understand the problem may be with Adobe Photoshop Elements 6 The appplication has failed to start because connAPI.DLL was not found. Re-install may fix the problem


Hi there.

Do one of the following solutions: Solution 1: Remove the NOKIAManager.mox file.

  1. Exit Photoshop Elements.
  2. Open the C:\Program Files\Adobe\Photoshop Elements 6.0\moxplugins folder.
  3. Move the NOKIAManager.mox file to the Recycle Bin, or another location such as your desktop.
  4. Restart your computer.
Note: The NOKIAManager.mox plug-in file is required for Adobe Photo Downloader to download photos from a Nokia mobile phone. If you use a Nokia mobile phone, use Solution 2. If you later decide to use a Nokia mobile phone, either move the NOKIAManager.mox file back to the original location or reinstall Photoshop Elements.
Solution 2: Install or reinstall the Nokia PC Suite software.

Note: Only use this solution if you connect a Nokia mobile phone to your computer.

In order to communicate with a Nokia mobile phone, your computer must have the Nokia PC Suite software installed. Install the software to allow Adobe Photo Downloader to communicate with the phone and download photos from it. If you have previously installed Nokia PC Suite but are still getting this error message, uninstall and reinstall the software or upgrade to a newer version. For more information about Nokia PC Suite, contact Nokia or visit the Nokia web site.

Solution 3: Disable Adobe Photo Downloader.

  1. Open the Organizer in Photoshop Elements.
  2. Choose Edit > Preferences > Camera or Card Reader.
  3. Disable the Auto Launch Adobe Photo Downloader On Device Connect option.
  4. Click OK.
Note: This solution will prevent Adobe Photo Downloader from starting when Windows starts, and it will not appear automatically when you plug in a camera, card reader, flash memory drive, or other memory device. When you plug in one of these devices, and in order to download photos into the Organizer, you will need to start Photoshop Elements and choose File > Get Photos or Videos > From Camera or Card Reader.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!

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.).

Downloading photos from new F40fd


!, There is no need for Software supplied with ANY camera to be installed- t is best left in the box.
Windows will detect and camera a put uo the Scanner/Camera Wizard from whence you can direct images to exazctly where you want them.
So remove any software- none required..
All images are stored by default in My Document/My pictures or [and check this before you delete any software]
My Computer/'C'/Programs/FinePix to check.
