I have taken pictures for a while with no problem. when i download them onto my computer they come out crisp and the color is fine. but a few weeks ago i took some pictures and when i open them in photoshop they come out pixelated with colors that don't belong there. i'm a graphic designer and know it's not the program with the problems. i assume i messed up a setting, but am unaware of what that setting is...can you help.
p.s. if it helps i can send examples of the images...

If you are using a card reader of some sort (other than using the camera to download the images), it may not be SDHC compliant. Have you tried using the camera to download the images via the supplied cable? If you've taken the images in RAW format, that could also be the problem. Try using a 2gb or smaller card in the camera to take some images and then download them using your usual method. If it works with the 2gb card but not with the 4gb, it's likely your reader isn't SDHC compliant.
images that are all black, white, or any other solid color or hue represent a problem with the camera imager. Just to be sure it is the imager and not the LCD, download the images onto your computer and view them. If they look the same as they did on your camera, it is time for a repair.
As simple as this may sound, have you cleaned the lens lately? A lot of image quality deterioration comes from a finger print or other smudge on the lens. Digital cameras are succeptable to even the smallest gunk on the lens. Because the lens element is very tiny, use a cotton swab with a drop of lens cleaner (or isopropyl alcohol) to thouroughly clean and dry the lens. If it isn't a dirty lens, check your file-size and flash settings.
hotoPC 650 captures images in 24-bit color (16.7 million colors). Your pictures will not display maximum image quality if your monitor or computer's video controller doesn't support this color depth. Additionally, if your pictures are taken in 1154 x 864 mode, try increasing your video resolution above 640 x 480. You may need to upgrade your system to achieve the best possible image quality. If your pictures look better on the screen than when you print them out, you may need to upgrade your printer. An EPSON Stylus ink jet printer, for example, provides excellent image quality. If you used drag and drop to insert your pictures, they may appear grainy. Try importing them into your documents instead.
