Print out snapshot-sized pics...

One thing I'm still not clear on - I want to print out snapshot-sized pics (say, 4x6) of the highest quality. Would I choose TIFF at 640x480 or TIFF at 2048x1536 and then size it down with a photo program? Is 640x480 a 4x6 size? Everything seems to come out so *large* when I print it. Memory size is not a particular concern right now (just bought a 64 mb card), just trying to get it right.

Re: Print out snapshot-sized pics...

Lets start with resolution. 640x480@ 72dpi is 8.8in X 6.6in when you change that to your printer resloution (300 dpi) it becomes a 2.1inX1.6 in print. if you want a 4x5 image @300 dpi shoot the TIF 1200x1600 (actually it is a 1200X1500 for 4x5 proportion)

Proper settings for 4x6


Unless you have reason not to, stick with the Large image size (see "Changing the Recording Pixel Setting" on pages 70-71 of the manual).

The biggest thing to watch out for is that the camera takes pictures that are 4 by 3 in aspect ratio. That's equivalent to a 4.5 inch by 6 inch photo, so some of the top and bottom will be cut off when you make a 4x6 print. Alternatively, many photo places will give you 4.5x6 prints for the same price.

Hi there I just bought a Polaroid two instant print camera but the quality of pics is really poor very washed out and even a bit blurry do I need to set it up?


set your pixel ratio to the largest setting, this means less pictures per memory, but higher picture quality. Also if possible adjust your iso to the highest setting, as well as the shutter speed, having both of these settings set to the highest point will require more light for picture taking, however will result in the highest quality image.

What image resolution should i be using for regular 4x6 prints i have a 10.1 megapixel camera, but my pics still look grainy


Your pictures should not be looking grainy. Are they printed grainy but look clear on your screen. If so then it's just your printer. Try forcing the flash in the highest resolution. If you video's are grainy too then there is possibly something wrong with your camera. Make sure your lens is really clean. Worst case your CCD sensor inside your camera could be bad. Hope not!

How can I take high resolution photos on my Panasonic Lumix DMC FS15. I sent some photos to Costco to have them made into posters and was told that I needed a higher resolution photo to make a good clear...


All cameras have multiple settings for picture quality. For example if you email a lot of pictures select a lower resolution. If you have "poster" size prints made select the highest resolution you camera will do.
Go into your cameras set up and select the highest resolution you have. should be about 12MP.
You have a high quality print with that.

Good quality photos


In the quality option... select 2040x1356 (the A4 print).

I myself also have a casio camera and i take all my pictures at the highest availible quality. While this is not the size u want to email pics at... You can always reduce the file size on your computer, but you can never add quality. While it may take more space on my mem card it is worth it, it is like the old saying about dressing warmly... you can always peel layers off....

Quality too low for 4x6 prints


A P72 should be good enough for 4x6 prints. Are you shooting at the maximum resolution? At 3.2 Megapixels you should be able to print at 4x6" at 250dpi (which although not ideal is better than that of most magazine printing!)

The graininess of your images is not to do with resolution but rather sensitivity and the processing engine in the camera. Are you shooting in bright light, or mainly with the flash? If it is the latter, I'm afraid you're always going to have the picture noise (graininess) with this camera.

If you're going to upgrade, look for a model with good low light capabilities and a good lens. www.dpreview.com is an excellent resource for comparison shopping.

How do I setup the camera to save pics above 180 dpi resolution?


Select image>image size, make sure that the 'resample image' box is unticked and change the resolution to 300 dpi. This will automatically change the image size.

Best picture size to use


The higher quality will not degrade the prints, you can always reduce the size for printing, if you wish. (Although it shouldn't matter, if the printer is not able to print all the pixels due to limited resolution, it will downsize properly, anyway). The only drawbacks are, as you noted, increased size/storage requirements. I would shot always in the biggest possible size and with fine JPEG (no sense in using TIFF - the quality is not so different that you ever notive it). The reason for always using the biggest size is that you can later crop and have better chances at postprocessing. When "THE" shot comes your way, you don't want to accidentily store it in all the glory of 800x600 pixels :) (Switching sizes is a bad idea, you inevitable forget to switch the size back and shot an entire afternoon in the small size. Been there, done that, did not get the pixels back :)

S 5i Question: What are the best settings for quick pics


Hi: Let's go by parts... :) You want to print your photos in 8 x 10 inches without bluring some areas on the picture... in Europe we talk about centimeters. It's something like 20 x 25 centimeters. If you want the picture to be with the best quality for printing, then you have to set your image resolution in, at least, 300 dpi (dots per inch) - this you have to do with software, like Adobe Photoshop CS2. For you to change the resolution of your picture to print with that size without losing any quality, you have to have a picture with, at least, 3000 x 2400 pixels. So, it's better for you to take pictures with the highest quality in your camera, 2560 x 1920, and still you loose some detail. When you have a picture with the resolution 1024 x 768 taken by any normal camera, you will get a resolution of 72 dpi (the same resolution that pictures in the Internet or monitors have. When you print it at your size, 8 x 10 inches, the computer or the printer, one of them is going to change the resolution of your pictures. That process is called "interpolation" and it means that some pixels are generated with middle colors. It's dificult for me to explain the process without showing images but I think that if your search through Google engine you will find lost of pages talking about it... maybe one day I can post in my site about that subject ;) If you have any question about what I tryed to explain just post again ;) Regards
