It sounds like you set the file settings to a small file size - perhaps in order to get more photos on a single memory card. You need to change the setting to the largest file size possible, at the highest quality. The steps for this will be in your manual. If you need detailed instructions and don't have your manual, let me know and I'll lookup your manual online.

300 dpi image change


Yes you can. But 300 dpi is nothing. You could compare this to a question like, fits a yard in a football field.
When talking about 300 dpi, you also must know how big a picture has to be.
According to the manual, your camera can shoot pictures with 4288 by 3216 pixels. When you want to print 300 dpi that is 14 inch by 12 inch pictures. If you want to shoot pictures for smaller results like 6 inch by 4 inch or 7 inch by 5, you can chose a smaller resolution.
Don't be confused by the technical terms of 300 dpi. This is only used in the printing industry. I already printed till 4 times the resolution that was theoretical possible, and still the pictures look very good.
If you have a great picture, shot in the highest resolution, you should be able to make a print of more that 5 or 6 feet and still have a great picture

I have olympus camedia 4.0 mega pixel. old camera. need to know how to change the camera photo storage from 18 photos to at least 64 photos storage


Hi, jamesepatton, and welcome to FixYa.
I am going to assume that you are referring to the camera's internal storage, as opposed to the camera's removable storage card.
Obviously, to increase the storage on a removable card, one need only purchase another, higher capacity storage card.
To change the camera's internal storage capacity, one needs to reduce the resolution of the pictures one takes.
Example- your Olympus is capable of taking a 4.0 mega pixel sized picture. This size picture can generate a fairly large data file (after all, pictures- like Word documents- are only data files!) While this is what is normally programmed into the camera at the factory, you are not 'married' to this size. In the "Setting" menu of the camera, there will be an option to change the mega pixel (mp) setting. Try lowering it to the next lower setting (say, 3.0 mp) and shoot until the camera tells you it's full. You may have to try several different mp setting, but eventually you'll land on the right one. It's going to depend a lot on what is in your pictures as well, as different scenes and content can affect file size.
A quick note here: Lowering the mp setting will affect the quality (and/or resolution) of the photo. I have found that for a great majority of the photos that I personally take, a 2.0 mp setting is just fine. I am by no means shooting magazine covers or entering my pictures in contests, I shoot 'em, print 'em and save 'em. Just your basic home pictures.
If resolution/quality is important, I would highly recommend that you save ALL pictures to a removable memory card and leave the camera set on 4.0 mp.
Good luck, and let us know how you go!

Videos are now a small picture and when expanded are POOR quality


It seems that you have reduced the resolution of the vedio capturing format. In format settings change it to maximum avaialbe resolution such as 1024x900, etc ( maximum among available). Also for increasing the still photo resolution, select the maximum mega pixel such as 3.2/5/etc.. Usually the mega pixels can be changed using any short cut keys.

Poor Resolution


e sure the quality setting is the highest - 7 megapixels. Otherwise, why buy a 7MP if you shoot at 3MP. The Canon 750 seems to have excellent picture quality where the Olympus has soft focusing (reviews at C-net).

Can ytou please tell me if it is possible to reset an olympus 8 mega digital camera from 144pixels to 300 pixels the camera is a stylus 800


No

I only say "no" because an 8 megapixel camera would be taking pictures from 640x480 up to <something huge>x<something else huge>

In any case if you were to ask "HOW" to change the capture resolution, on most camera's you'd go into the camera setup menu, then into the picture quality settings, and usually choose between low, medium, and high... or good, better, best... depends on the camera, but it means the same thing =-]

Poor image quality


hotoPC 650 captures images in 24-bit color (16.7 million colors). Your pictures will not display maximum image quality if your monitor or computer's video controller doesn't support this color depth. Additionally, if your pictures are taken in 1154 x 864 mode, try increasing your video resolution above 640 x 480. You may need to upgrade your system to achieve the best possible image quality. If your pictures look better on the screen than when you print them out, you may need to upgrade your printer. An EPSON Stylus ink jet printer, for example, provides excellent image quality. If you used drag and drop to insert your pictures, they may appear grainy. Try importing them into your documents instead.
