My images save at sizes

Your solutions are varied, but the results will be (mostly) the same. Option 1: Lower the resolution and quality settings on your camera. If you are seeing 3-4 MB per photo, then they are probably at least 4000 pixels wide, and your file size will be larger to reflect that. If you set the camera to a lower quality and or resolution, you will for sure save disk space. Consequently, you will also lose image quality. If you are mainly archiving the photos for the purpose of viewing them online, on your PC, or through a digital picture frame, this is no big deal. If you intend to print, especially a large print, you will see pixelation occur in the print. This will take smooth parts of your picture and chunk colors together in a "boxy" appearance. Your second option, is to import your photos in a program like Google Picasa or many other free options, and then convert your image to a compressed format, such as a compressed JPEG or PNG file. PNG files are usually the better choice for file size, but not every devices (frames, TVs, etc.) recognize PNG files. So you may want to stick with JPEG depending on your use for your photos. Additionally, you can lower the resolution of hi-res photos within Picasa (or its alternatives) after importing the photos. This is the preferred route as you can take every photo like you want to print it as a poster, and then choose which photos to drop the resolution. This gives you the safety of shooting each picture as if you want to keep the quality and then later decide which are worth archiving at what resolution. Remember, the detail in a photo also reflects upon its size, not just resolution, if you take one 12 MP picture of the sky and another of a bunch of different color balloons, the balloon will have more color data and thus a higher file size.

What's more likely to be the issue is that the spring loading on the door has loosened over time, and the battery simply isn't being pressed up against the contacts in the camera firmly enough.

How to take Supermacro pix?

Super Macro will not work in "auto" mode. If you put it in "P" mode (and possibly the other manual modes) and then press the "macro" (little flower looking think) button to the left of the lens under "MF" (manual focus). It will display "hold for super macro" on the screen.

When I take pictures now

Sounds like the camera was adjusted for flourescent lighting. The PowerShot should have a menu with various Lighting scenarios such as natural, outdoor, nighttime, sepia, etc. I would check this first. It should be easy to find. If you can't adjust the color properly with these pre-set options, there may be an RGB adjuster although I doubt it. You can certainly use a photo editor on your computer easily as well to adjust the color balance easily. If you don't use Photoshop there are free online photo editors such as http://www.gimp.org. You want to look for Color Balance and an RGB slide bar, it is quite fun to play around with.

I need to download some

The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.

Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program.

Reduce photo size

Try Picassa. All you need to do is to make some basic correction. very very minimum that you dont even know that there is a change. save the photo back into a different location. You will see a change in the pic size.

Alternatively, google for Digital Photo Resizer. I used a trial version for sometime and it helped.

LCD screen broken from being dropped - just a black splodge!

Replacement parts for digital cameras are hard to come by. even if you could find one, the electrical connections inside the camera is more problematic. the best suggestion is to take it to a camera shop and see how much the repair cost would be, (probably over $100). if you do not want to invest that in a repair, there are some really good digital cameras out there for about the same price as the repair. If you want to try finding an LCD screen for your camera, try Camera Repair Japan, CRJ, located in Duluth, GA, phone # 770-849-0555. Good luck.

Fuzzy, Grainy Pictures

This camera is a perfect one to show the problem with the tiny sensors in the typical point and shoot. From the same sensor size that previously gave 2 or 3 megapixels, Canon now extracts 7.something. In order to do that, they have to turn the gain up so that each pixel actually puts out a signal to be recorded. The natural outcome of that is noise. In this camera, Canon includes heavy noise reduction software that softens the image in order to reduce noise at the various ISO settings above the minimum one, but the result is still a mix of noisy and soft or fuzzy images.

However, the noise should be well controlled at the low end of the ISO settings.

I suspect you have somehow gotten the ISO setting set up higher than the lowest one. Use the four-way controller to access the ISO and set it to the lowest (80) value. This should give you noise free shots.

As an additional suggestion, read the concise review of this camera at Dpreview, the link for which I've provided.

Images are blurry, fuzzy

Good day,

I have heard a lot of complaints about people taking Blurry Photos.

There are a few possibilities for it and a few easy fixes.

The first possibility I would identify is a dirty lens. To fix this simply take a clean microfiber cloth and gently clean the lens until there are no smudges visible.

15073327_1.jpg

The other possibility I would identify is that the pictures are out of focus.
This problem can be caused by a dirty lens or because the object or person was not focused on. To ensure focus on your photos, line up your shot and wait for the camera to focus by pressing the shutter button half way down. When focused press the shutter button in all the way and hold the camera still until the photo appears on the screen. By doing this you will eliminate any motion that might mess up your shot.

Please let me know if these tips work for you!

Regards
