Do you mean, you use Winzip or some program to compress one or more of your pictures (jpgs) into a zip file? ZIP file will not modify your JPGs, so your JPG pictures would be the same quality before and after the zip process. JPG itself is a way to compress the original picture that your camera took. On some cameras, you can specify the quality of your pictures (not only resolution), and that determines how much the camera will try to compress the original picture. See link below for example pictures of different JPG qualities. Because JPG is already a compressed file, Winzip or other compression program usually can not compress it much smaller. Some camera allows you to save the pictures in RAW mode, and there is no JPG compression there, so in theory, the picture have more details. And you would be able to use Winzip to make the file smaller. Here is a link that explains JPG in more details http://www.brycetech.com/tutor/windows/jpeg_compression.html

During our visit to Paris/Disneyland we took more than 200 pics. However when loading them into our mac (into Iphoto) only 85 pics popped up. When I look at the SD card the majority of the pictures are...

Based on the file size, the files in question are probably RAW, not jpg files. Nikon View NX software or Photoshop will be able to open those files. You may want to convert them to jpg files, but do keep the RAW files since they contain much more picture detail then the jpg files.

After taking about 15-20 pictures our camera shows card error message. We download the pics onto our computer and reformat as the camera says to do...but should the camera hold more pictures than that?

Hello,

It sounds like the card is damaged, it should take a lot more photos than that.

The C-50 takes an XD memory card. These are different sizes. For example a 256mb size will take hundreds of photographs.

The C-50 is quite old and there are now different types of XD cards. It might be best to get a 128mb XD card.

The Olympus website says:
---
Please contact Olympus authorized distributor or service center in your region for the information about
using xD-Picture Card 512MB, 1GB or 2GB
---
I hope this helps.

SD card(s) - not enough free space?

Formatting the SD card to FAT32 instead of FAT16. Also, when the card is in the reader & you're looking at it on the Mac, empty the Trash while the card is still plugged-in.

Is it possible to recover my formatted pictures on my XD card

Deleting or formatting won't make the data in xd card erased permanently.

Those deleted data is still stored on the xd card, it's just invisible or inaccessible. Only the FAT or NFTS table is erased (the information about where those data were saved), but the real data are still intact there in sectors of xd card .

So as long as those data are not overwritten by new data, it's highly possible to recover them. And the MOST Effective way is to rely on some format recovery programs.

Try asoftech data recovery program, which can recover data after deeply scanning your xd card drive to look for lost data you accidentally deleted or formatted.

Pictures duplicating

Hi,

I have a Panasonic DMC-FZ7, and there is one setting that I know of which will cause two images to be recorded:

#1. Open both photos in the computer and check the ending of the file name. One of them will say ".jpg" or ".jpeg" and the other photo will say ".tif" or ".tiff".

#2. If this is the case and you want smaller, compressed pictures, turn off the TIFF setting in your camera. It should say how to do this in the user-manual.
