Most digital SLR cameras take pictures with an aspect ratio of 2 to 3. (This is based on the size of 35 mm film, where the images were 24 x 36 mm, a 2 to 3 ratio.) That is a different ratio than 8 x 10 inches, which is 4 to 5. There is no way to chan ... Canon EOS-20D Digital Camera

I downloaded pictures from my Canon EOS Digital Rebel XSi to my PC using the EOS utility, then burned the folder to a DVD. The computer I used has Windows 7. I then tried to view the pictures on my desktop which has Windows XP. Clicking on a picture icon tells me that the picture is too big to view. All the pictures are 4272 x 2848 pixels. How do I change the size of the pictures when they are being downloaded so they can be viewed?

I own Canon S3 IS digital PowerShot camera. I have taken many pictures, but wanted to make some adjustments to some of the manual settings, as I am getting more comfortable with the camera, and would like to try pictures without using the AUTO mode. I made some adjustments to the picture size (compresion) and pixels.I do not remember making any more changing, but I read the User Guide a lot, and learned where adjustments can be made in the maual mode. I decided to look at some of my latest pictu


Did you "format" as part of changing your settings? Format reformats the disk - it has nothing to do with the format of the image files. If you formatted the disk, you will have to use image recovery software to restore the files. If this is the c ... Digital Cameras

The sensor in most digital SLR cameras has an aspect ratio of 2 to 3. This is based on the aspect ratio of the film used in 35mm film SLRs, which was 24 x 36 mm. This works fine when you print on 4 x 6 paper (a 2 to 3 ratio), but not on 8 x 10 (whic ... Canon EOS-20D Digital Camera

I love my Canon S5is...however, whenever I send my digital pictures online to be developed they always turn out fuzzy or blurry. When I upload the pictures to the site, it says the resolution is not suitable for any of the sizes I choose to print (4x6 or 5x7). I purchased my camera on amazon.com and it did not come with a manual in English (only in Spanish). Can you help me with this problem? Thanks, Sonya

I just bought a fujifilm A170 and a canon printer for my work. The editing program is finepix. The problem that I am having is..........I tried to zoom in on the picture to bring up more of the detail that I need, (when I am viewing the pic on the computer) it won't print the picture in the larger size for me and I can't figure out how to do that. Can you help? J


You will need to set up the printer size - not sure how you do that on the finepix imaging software - but on others you have an image size / print size\015\012\015\012set to 300 PPI that will produce top quality and then the you should see what ... Fuji FinePix S5000 Digital Camera

File size Hi, I have a Canon Digital Rebel and no instruction manual. I am trying to attach some photos of an item onto a craig's list ad but the pictures are too "large" (too much data) for craig's list to handle. How can I retake the pictures at a lower resolution? In other words, how do I adjust the camera setting to lower the resolution? Thanks, Steve


Don't retake the photos, just resize them on your computer. Copy them to the system, My Pictures directory and use the photo tool to resize them to thumbnail. 2 minutes worth of work. ... Canon Digital Rebel / EOS-300D Digital Camera with EF-S 18-55mm Lens

Resolution I have a Canon Rebel XTI. Here is my problem. I took some senior pictures and then downloaded them onto my computer so that I could order them from my lab. The largest size that I could order was a 5x7 because of the resolution. What am I doing wrong. I have my camera set for the highest setting and I am using full auto. Can you tell me what may be affecting the resolution?


I suspect that what you have done is upload the thumbnails to the lab and not the actual picture.(check the sizes in kb) As fertobar says even at the lowest resolution setting the 400d is more than capable of printing out decent 5x7s. ... Canon EOS 400D / Rebel XTi Digital Camera

We have a Canon Power Shot A570 IS, purchased October 30, 2007. We have purchased new AA-size NiMH batteries for it but the problem remains. Whenever you turn it on it shows "Batteries Low" and shuts itself off. You might be able to take 1 or 2 pictures before the batteries low light comes on. I understand that lithium batteries will not work in this camera. Please advise. Thanks, Eileen


Alkaline are the only batteries to use in digital cameras such as yours. If you still get the same results with either or batteries the capacitor is giving out in the circuitry. The cost to repair this camera outweighs the cost of a new camera ... Digital Cameras

My Canon Rebel has stopped importing pix properly, despite being quite new. It displays pictures ok, we get to Windows explorer to view them as thumbnails as normal(with 0 kb size!), which Windows cannot open or view, or drag or copy over. On the camera side I can zoom into the image on the LCD display. 2 memory cards and the same thing...

Just few days before I purchased Nikon P90. Earlier I used Sony H50. I am very disappointed with P90. Reasons are : i) The LCD display is very poor compressing with Sony H50. ii) Battery levels are not displayed unless the power is too low. iii) Picture quality not very satisfied. iv) If I take a close picture, the subject size is changed. (example, I take a close picture of my daughter for passport size picture, but my daughters' face is changed in picture). It is very pleasurable for me if

Canon sd900 I seldom use my canon sd900 and I usually take pictures without using the flash. But I recently noticed that my hands should be very very steady, just a slight movement will cause the picture to be blurry or unclear. I usually don?t use the flash because it gives a darker background with your face too white from the flash. And my problem arises when I would request other people to take my picture because 90% don?t have a steady hand thus giving me a blurry picture.


Try a higher ISO speed (suggest 400). Look in your camera's instruction book to find out how to do this. ... Digital Cameras

Canon 5d I have a Canon 5D and a 430EX flash. When shooting pictures my flash will delay way to long before I can shoot another picture with flash. One picture is good and 3 are dark.
