There are at least three alternatives.

1. Take smaller pictures. Your camera should have mulitple resolutions available, possibly including one as small as 640x480. Since you didn't specify the model of your camera, I can neither tell you the smallest available on your camera, nor how to set it.

2. Reduce the size on the camera. Again, I can't be too specific, but there probably is an item in the Playback menu to resize pictures.

3. Reduce the size on the computer. Just about any photo manipulation software (free or otherwise) on Windows or Mac will have the ability to reduce the size of a photo.

My preference is to do it on the computer, preferring to take my pics at the camera's best resolution. That way, if Bigfoot wanders by or a UFO lands outside, I'll have the best pics I can get.

Pictures Lost??? We have a large number of pics on our 1GB memory card in our camera. However after unsuccessfully trying to transfer images onto file via the olympus master software, the pictures cannot be viewed on the camera. They don't seem to be erased, as only 10 pictures can still be taken on the memory card (in HQ format). If they were erased there'd be more space available? These pictures are very valuable but I cannot work out where they have gone to. I haven't pressed the Erase All bu

Hi there, i recently purchased a polaroid 600 camera from ebay and some 600 film. However, when I try to shoot, I just get blank pictures coming out (completely brown - alomst negative-type look). I'm not sure if I have loaded the film incorrectly, or if i am pressing the wrong button (there is a large green and smaller black on on the side of the camera - i have been pressing the green one), or if there is something wrong with either the camera or the film. Any advice appreciated


More than likely, the camera is ok. It sounds like the film is either expired, or the previous owner did not store the film properly, therefore it cannot be exposed properly. If you bought it off of ebay, you do not know how the previous owner took c ... Polaroid Digital Cameras
