Answers :

I am surprised that you are having issues with all your digital photos that were taken with auto settings: the previews of the photos as you were taking them should have alterted you of any major issues.
Your digital camera would have come with a digital photo editing software (such as Arcsoft photoimpression or Adobe Photo Essential) as most digital photo editing software will allow you to enhance (eg. repair) badly exposed digital photos - try 'autofix' feature first and save any enhanced pictures to a 'new' photos file name (this will allow you to make several enhancements to the original image without losing the original encoded digital information).
If you do not have a Photo editing program, Adobe Photoshop or Photo Essentials are great products but pretty expensive: an alternative 'free GNU' solution is available (GIMP) from www.gimp.org ... but be aware that they can be fairly complex to use and required a bit of learning as for any 'art' form (being photo retouching in this case). Excellent tutorial is available for GIMP (which behaves in a very similar manner to Photoshop).
Hope it helps and good luck! let me know how you go.
Before you spend money on photoshop, there a many programs that can do what you need.. some you may already have. Many for free.

\012If you MS Office, then you have MS Picture manager/ editor. Open pic for editing, and adjust the "gamma" setting. In other progs, the mid range "LEVELS"

Bad image Hello to you all... My S1 IS from one moment to another has shown a problem... I can point e focus normally but after de shoot the preview is very BAD and the image saved is the same of the previewd one... The pictures have real bad resolution and light and many strips with rainbow colored edges... Some people told me something about the shutter curtain or something like that... It makes any sense?

Image distortion I am having trouble when I download pictures onto my computer. The images look fine on LCD but once downloaded have either distorted color (streaks of green or other colors) or they have lines running through which make the images not aligned correctly. Each time I download pictures from the camera a greater quantity of pictures seem to be distorted and corrupted.

The screen on my samsung LT210 dual view camera must be broken. The front view is fine and the camera still works but the larger screen to view normal pictures has been damaged and I cannot see the picture that I am taking. Can it be fixed or should I buy a new one. There are no camera repair shops where I live. I bought the camera from Best Buy and they told me that I either dropped the camera or smashed the screen somehow. Anyway, I need a camera and wanted to know if I should buy another


From your description you would be further ahead to buy a new camera, you stated there are no repair shops where you live, and to send it away would be expensive probably costing more than a new one. The only other option is go on ebay to price a new ... Digital Cameras

I have a Canon Powershot S3 IS and I was looking at picture I had taken and the lens was retracted. I switched to the camera mode and the lens started to come out and hit my leg and stopped half way. The lens went dark. I turned it off to retract the lens and then turned it back on. The lens came all the way out but the screen is still black and I could feel the camera and just barely hear it making the noise it makes when the lens is coming out but it was already all the way out.

I believe I got salt water spray on my camera this past summer and now it is having various problems that come and go. Foremost is most pictures are washed out of color and there is horizontal lines in the pictures. Sometimes shutter doesn't open or close. Flash won't pop up. Running slow. Is this worth repairing or should I buy a new camera?


Salt water is corrosive over time and the damage is ongoing. Unless this is a very expensive camera, it probably isn't worth repairing. ... Digital Cameras

Hi I recently purchased Canon Powershot Sd1200 IS. I installed the Solution Disc software but when I connect the camera to my computer there is nothing that tells me I have installed new hardware - the computer makes the ringing sound when I turn camera power on and off. Only the user guides show on my computer. Before this camera I had the Canon Powershot SD1000 and was able to download my pictures with no problem. Was told at Future Shop that it might be a problem with my computer. rnEmail

I have had two digital cameras (the first an Ixus - the present a Powershot). After a couple of years the Ixus wore out batteries in 5 minutes - and buying new ones did not help. Now the same thing is happenng to my Powershot - which uses ordinary AA-batteries. Both cameras still take very good pictures - but a retailer told me that this is what happens to digital cameras after a while. Do i really have to by a new one every 3.rd year - or have anyone any suggestions?

I purchased a Nikon Cool Pix Camera in December 2009. In April, I was unable to take pictures for some unexplained reason. I took the camera into Best Buy to have the Geek Squad look at it. They told me it was a problem that needed to be addressed by Nikon. They said that it was obviously not a case of damage or abuse. Long story short, I sent the camera back to Nikon in May with a letter, receipt and warranty. I need to ask why, 6 months later, I still have heard absolutely nothing from yo

Software problem The Casio EXZ75 makes you go through the setup menu every time you turn it on. There is no way to save the setup. You have to push the set button 5 times to get to the screen where you can take a picture. Casio says to send it back for a charge of up to $100 since it is 13 months old. Any ideas? or buy a new (not Casio) camera.
