Change picture size on olympus stylus 500

How do I change the size of the pictures on my olympus stylus 500 digital camera. It seems the default size is SQ1 2048 x 1536. I want to change it to SQ2 640 x 480, so that when I load the pictures onto my pc and e mail them, they dont come out huge.
I have figured out how to change the size to the one that I want, but when I turn the camera off and then back on, it goes back to what seems to be the default setting.
Any ideas please ?

Make sure you go to the camera menu and go to the setup tab and change All Reset from On to OFF. This will retain the setting of the image quality to SQ2.

My olympus stylus 500 wont take pictures.


The problem you are describing is a problem with one of the chips in the camera that controls image processing. It seems to have failed and needs to be replaced. Following are the instructions to send your camera to Olympus for service.

Olympus will charge a flat rate repair fee for this product if beyond the one year factory warranty or the warranty is voided. The cost is $78 plus your local sales tax. This covers parts and labor, factory cleaning and diagnostic check, 6 month warranty and the cost of shipping the product back to you is all included in that price.

Pixel problem, all pictures taken have poor pixel resolution


It sounds like you set the file settings to a small file size - perhaps in order to get more photos on a single memory card. You need to change the setting to the largest file size possible, at the highest quality. The steps for this will be in your manual. If you need detailed instructions and don't have your manual, let me know and I'll lookup your manual online.

Weatherproof


The Stylus 500 weatherproofing protection is equivalent to IEC Standard publication 529 IPX4. The camera will not be damaged by water splashed from any direction. The camera can be used outside in adverse weather conditions. If you are taking pictures when the camera is exposed to rain or snow, make sure that the optical components (lens, flash) are not covered with water. Water droplets on the lens may affect image quality. The Stylus 500 is designed to operate at ambient temperatures of 32?-104?F and relative humidity 30-90%. Please note that the camera is weatherproof, not waterproof, and cannot be immersed in water. Olympus will not assume any responsibility for any camera damage caused by water getting inside as a result of misuse by the user.
