Writing edited jpegs to CD1000

Has anyone successfully written edited (Photoshop) Jpeg files to mini CDs and then been able to display them using the CD1000? It would be extremely useful to edit frames (add titles, color correct, zoom etc) and then write them back to a new CD but it appears that after edit the .jpg file results in a "File Error" when the camera reads it. The Sony DirectCD manual (p11) seems to indicate that provided filename and directory conventions and followed (and if the file size is not too big) the camera will display files. Anyone had any luck or found out what the Jpeg file constraints are?

Re: Writing edited jpegs to CD1000

The problem is an incompatibility between Photoshop and Sony JPEG files. (I thought JPEG was supposed to be a standard!) A simple workaround is to use the PictureGear program supplied by Sony. Use its File – Process command to save the Photoshop frames to the CD-R. It is also useful to ensure that the frames are resized to 1600x1200, 1024, 640 etc to eliminate the black border that would otherwise be displayed by the camera. This “feature” can be useful however if you have frames that have important sections at the edge of the frame. This would often be lost when displaying on a TV. Save the frame as, say, 1520 x 1140 and you will always see the full picture! Another possible advantage is to use achieve greater JPEG compression. The CD1000 will accept PictureGear at the largest filesize (10) but one can use compression 8 or even less and get many more frames on a disk. There is a little loss of quality but much less than resizing down to a smaller image size. I would guess that the above will also apply to memory stick.

What does raw+fine pictures mean?


The raw+fine setting indicates that your camera will take both raw (NEF) and high resolution JPEG pictures with every shot. You can change this to shoot just JPEG or just raw shots using your menu under the little camera icon. Click on image quality and it will give you multiple settings so you can choose only raw or only JPEG. You have three JPEG settings: fine, normal or basic.


I always shoot raw+fine which I think may be the default setting. I use the jpeg pictures for simple and quick editing and I use raw for detailed editing. JPEG pictures deteriorate quickly during editing while raw pictures can handle extensive editing without significant deterioration.

When you shoot raw+fine, it means the camera is actually storing two pictures of the same shot, one in each of the two formats. When you view the pictures in Windows, you can tell the difference between the raw shots and the jpeg shots because the raw shots have a broad black bar across the top and bottom of the picture while the jpeg shots fill the screen.

I took the images from my camera, edited them in photoshop, and am trying to put them back on to a memory card inside my camera but this message is popping up, what can I do to convert them?


What you are experiencing is programing incompatibility. Once an image has been modified in photoshop the camera firmware is unable to read the files. I would also be careful doing this because you will end up corrupting the memory card and the camera will refuse to read it.

D70s I shoot raw. Thumbnail picture on LCD is ok. when downloaded to computer have picture is perfect other half out of focus and look like ribbon or rainbow?


When you are using the raw format, you are also taking a jpeg basic photo. The camera display on;y show the jpeg. Most windows programs only show jpg also. In order to view the raw files, you must use s/w capable, such as Photoshop or the s/w that came with the Nikon (Picture View, I think/ Compare both jpg and raw files. If they both exhibit the same anomoly, than more than likely you have a dirty or bad CCD sensor.

I have been given a Coolpix P6000 which I am still experimenting with. My latest pictures contain some images which have an NRW extension instead of JPEG and these pictures cannot be printed. How can I...


NRAW is a RAW image file taken directly from the the sensor & is not processed by the camera. RAW files can be edited in photo editing software. If you want camera to record JPEG files change your [IMAGE QUALITY] setting to [FINE], {NORMAL] or [BASIC].
or to record image in both formats as RAW & JPEG use [NRAW+FINE] etc.
Hope this helps you ;)

Viewing jpeg files


Any camera is 'Blind' to JPEG files
Camera generate EXIF files a JPEG with extra data
Computers images editing software in the main strip off the this extra datae and therefore the camera can no longer 'see' the image.
There is software that will restor the Exif erxtender
Irfanview is one[a Free down load]

Insignia digital photo frame won't recognize some .jpgs


When you save in Photoshop make sure you select "Baseline ("Standard") on the JPEG options when you save. That should fix the problem for you. It did the trick for My Kodak SV710 digital frame which wasn't displaying images I had edited in photoshop.

Problem with JPEG compression?


think what is happening is that Pentax is not using the maximum JPEG quality value for their high quality setting. I re-saved an image in Photoshop last night, and the JPEG quality value was set to 9. I increased it to 12, and ended up with a 3.5 MB file.

Can't place camera image file into another document


Nikon digital cameras record images in the "EXIF" (Exchangeable Image File Format) file type. Even though the file name (when shooting compressed files) ends in ".jpg" it is not a regular JPEG image. This format includes not only the JPEG picture data but also the shooting information (f/stop, shutter speed, lens, etc.) and other text-based data. Writing this type of information is part of the global "DCF" standard for images from digital cameras. Some applications do not properly read this data and will display various errors and warning when opening these files. The only way to use an image in one of these programs is to open it in an image-editing program and save the file to a new file name. This changes the file from an EXIF image and saves it into whatever format is chosen, stripping out all of the extra data. Contact the developer of the program which does not properly open EXIF files for possible updates.
