Question about Kodak EasyShare SV811 (8858946) Digital Picture Frame

1 Answer

Current file is bad message keeps coming up. I have 130 photos,

All my photos are in jpeg format, and about the same size, but many of them cannot load even tho I can see all of them in thumbnail when I select the source they are on. When in slide show many give the above message. The manual does not address this issue at all. so what is the size and format, or what is the problem? Kindly help me.

    I have the EX-1011 and get the same message on alot of jpg files.

    I too have the same problem. I found out the pics I have edited in Adobe Photoshop don't show in the slideshow and give the mentioned error message. All other pics I have work fine. They are all in jpeg format.

    I am also annoyed with the frame cutting the lower part of the pictures when showing "Fit to frame"..

    I also have problems with the screen turning off suddenly when trying to load pictures or when I have pushed a button on the remote control and dont get any respons. Anyone have the same problem? Wonder if I should return the frame if the problems I have arent solved soon...

I had this problem - The problem is the way that the file was encoded after editing in photoshop. When saving it as a JPEG you must make sure that the format options are set to either Baseline "standard" or Baseline "Optimized". If the format settings are set as Progressive you will get the error "current file is bad blah blah blah"
Hope this helps.

When moving jpegs from camera to iPad, i'm looking for an app that will allow me to see file names before I select and move photos to iPad without using wifi

You will need to purchase a 3rd party card reader for your iPad. The apple one will only use the iPhoto app and as you know, its very limited. However, below are a few options to choose from Amazon. If you watch the user submitted videos you can see that the file names are prominently displayed during import. These are just 2 I thought might work well and are favorably reviewed but there are plenty to choose from.

How do i get a picture the right size to fit on my social media page?

if you have a photo in jpeg format then it is possible to save it in jpeg format too but changing the parameter "JPEG quality factor" from 100% to 80% for example. The pixels of photo will be the same but the size smaller. I usually use Microsoft Photo Editor application on my Windows PC:
1- open file
2- save as ...
3- choose jpeg format
4- press button "more"
5- change jpeg quality factor %
6- press save

Garmin Nuvi 1490- I have loaded JPEG photo's but none will show up in picture viewer. i have changed the file size to a smaller format, but nothing shows up. i have loaded images on both the unit and...

The pictures must be in the "JPEG" folder of either the GPS's internal memory or external SD card to display. Acceptable formats are: JPEG, BPM, GIF, BNG, TIF, and others.If you are having trouble, resizing and / or reducing the number of colors in the picture may help. If you save or convert the image to GIF, it will automatically be reduced to 256 colors.

Good luck!

Pandigital Photo Frame - Slideshow leaves out Photos?

Size limit depends on exact model. Anything over 4GB will almost certainly not work consistently with any. model 1GB or less should work with any model. None of the images should be stored in folders, and all should be jpeg format (.jpg). If any of them have been edited, they may be saved as Progressive jpeg or something similar even if the extension (.jpg) remains the same. If you resave the missing photos in as JPEG in MS Paint, it should ensure they are compatible. You may have to format the memory card and re-add the photos to make sure it will work,

How to reduced photo in format (JPEG)

To decrease the size of the image as well as change the format to jpeg, Open the file in PaintBrush and do a "Save As" and choose the file type as JPEG, and the size is reduced.
Once the size of the file is small, it won't take much time to upload in any site.

E-mailing photos

JPEG format storage is ideal for posting your photos to the Internet and for e-mailing them to friends. (It’s also useful for archiving when you've finished editing them and need to save storage space.) The compressed images still look good on-screen and contain a relatively large amount of information in the shrunken file. JPEG storage is great for maximizing space but not for maintaining image quality. If you want to get smaller files for archiving, use minimal JPEG compression (high quality/low compression). The ideal compression is lossless, which means there's no discernible drop in image quality even though the file size has decreased.
