Re: Saving photo files

The building blocks of your image library are the actual file formats in which you save your images. There are two major formats: compressed and uncompressed. • The advantage of uncompressed storage is that you can save a maximum amount of image-forming information for color fidelity and clarity. • Compressed file formats get rid of some information to shrink the file size (thereby increasing a disk's storage capacity). We recommend saving all your work-in-progress images (equivalent to the negatives in film cameras) as TIFF files. This way they will remain at maximum quality, so you can create other versions for printing or e-mailing, and can save them in smaller, compressed files like JPEGs. The advantage is that you'll always be able to recreate an effect or enhancement by starting with the original TIFF file without losing image integrity.

If a file is deleted and is not written by further data, then the file has actually been there.

My playback mode is not working well. It will only play back pictures that were recently taken. Not ones that are filed for sometime.


I'm guessing that you never formatted your SD card in the card in the camera when you first got it. BUT DON'T DO SO JUST YET. The problem is going to get progressively worse unless you do the following: 1) backup the photos on your card by saving them to your computer. Recommend using a portable USB card reader to do so (see this link, and if you have problems seeing the files see this other link). 2) after saving your photos onto your computer, format the SD card in your camera using the camera's format feature. Look for it in the "tools" menu by selecting the option that states your card's memory capacity. Note that this will also erase your card, so again do so only after saving your photos onto your computer.

You have to use a card reader either on your computer or an external USB card reader. Put the card in the card reader, open the recovery program, then select the drive where files are deleted, then press "Start" and wait for it to do it's magic.

How do I recover pictures from the camera's memory if there are no pictures on the memory card?


First of all, do not save any new file to camera's memory card.

Take out memory card, and connect it to computer using a card reader. You should see memory card shown as a drive letter (like H:) in Windows Explorer.

Camera: Panasonic Lumix DMC-FT1 Problem: Camera is not saving photos Hi, my camera started responding very slugglishly yesterday. I took a few pictures, and some of them wouldn't save. If I tried to switch...


Are you formatting the card in the camera as you're supposed to? Have you tried going into the menu and finding "reset" and followed the on-screen instructions? Do you have photos on the internal memory? If so, remove your card and format the camera to erase the memory.

Formatting memory card


First of all, yes, you will lose your pics if you format the card now. Get a card reader and download the pics to your computer. If you've used 1.7GB on a 2GB card, it may very well be full since the camera uses part of the card to write the files.

I'm unable to download photos from the disk.


You may be saving the images in the RAW format, which requires matching software to read. Most kiosks can't read them. If this is the case, switch back to jpeg format.
