Re: Resolution

Sure you can change it. Just go to image size in your photo software and change it to 300dpi Its what all the professional printing companies suggest you do before you print any of your images. Just do a save as to a tiff file for best resolults If you keep making changes and save over and over again to a jpg file you loose a lot of your quality. changing to 300 dpi doesnt make your image smaller. I printed some of mine for and art show at 300dpi at 11x16 and the people who saw them on display said they were truely amazed that my work had come from a digital camera. I dont remember what mpx your C2040is, I just remember when I owned a C3030 it took pics at 3.4 mpx. which I couldnt print past 8x10, now I have 6.1 mpx

Re: Resolution

The short answer is you cannot! I believe the resolution of your camera is 1600 x 1200 pixels; if you print this out @ 300dpi. you will get a print size of 5.3 x 4 inches. if you print at 72 dpi the print size will be 22 x16 ins. The 72 ppi that is recorded with your exif data is meaningless.

Cannot transfer images from cameria to computer


Hi!

A simple workaround is to remove the memory card from the camera and insert it in an appropiate card reader connected to your computer. It allows also a higher transfer speed, that's why I allways do so.


Regards,

Bogdan

Need date stamp on pics taken with my Olympus Camedia c-60 camera. Cannot figure out how to make it work that way. Any ideas? Thx.


By default Olympus cameras do not print the date on the images when they are downloaded to a PC. Olympus does not include this functionality because they feel that it detracts from image quality. There is a function of the camera called print order or print reservation that you can set that it will print the date on the images but this is only if you take the card to a photo processing store. However if you use the Camedia Master or Olympus Master software and print the images that you have previously transferred there is a check box in the print setting window that you can add the date and or time to the printed image.

By connecting the camera to a computer with the provided USB cable,
images on a card can be transferred to the computer. Some OS's (operating
systems) may need a special setup when connecting to the camera for the
first time. Follow the chart below. For details on the procedures in the chart,
refer to the “Reference Manual” on the CD-ROM and the “Software
Installation Guide” (included in the CD-ROM package).
Identifying the OS
Windows 98/98 SE
(Second Edition)
Windows 2000
Professional/Me/XP
Mac OS 9.0 - 9.1/OS X
*OS 8.6: See below.

Connecting the camera to a computer using the provided USB cable
Installing the USB
driver for Windows 98
Confirming the computer recognizes the camera
Downloading image files
Disconnecting the USB cable
 

Even if your computer has a USB connector, data transfer may not function correctly if
you are using one of the operating systems listed below or if you have an add-on USB
connector (extension card, etc.).
● Windows 95/NT 4.0
● Windows 98/98 SE upgrade from Windows 95
● Mac OS 8.6 or lower (except Mac OS 8.6 equipped with USB MASS Storage support
1.3.5 installed at the factory)
● Data transfer is not guaranteed on a home-built PC system or PCs with no factory
installed OS.
You can view images using: graphics applications that support the JPEG
file format (Paint Shop Pro, Photoshop, etc.); Internet browsers (Netscape
Communicator, Microsoft Internet Explorer, etc.); CAMEDIA Master
software; or other software. For details on using commercial graphics
applications, refer to their instruction manuals.

Only 72ppi?


You are mistaken. "ppi" is not a measure of anything useful when considering digital cameras, it is only useful when discussing printers. According to this review: http://www.dpreview.com/reviews/fujifilms9000/ The S9500 has a maximum resolution of 3488 x 2616. This means that when *printed* at 300 dpi, you can get an accurate 8.7" x 11.6" print without any "enlarging" (called interpolation). I would HIGHLY suspect the software used to print the photos, and not the camera itself. For excellent free, fast, and simple organizing and printing software (for Windows), take a look at www.preclick.com.
