What format is it best to save photographs on a CD so that Boots or whoever are able to open it and make prints? My daughter recently got a digital camera, saved some pictures to a Cd but our local photo developers couldnt open the images. I'm new to this game so have limited ideas.
I got Paint Shop Pro, and Photo Studio 5.5 on my computer if this helps. My daughter has Nero fine Pix. I mean could they be saved as jpegs? or are bit maps better? Help!!
Ok So I got a folder on the desktop containing the photographs downloaded from the camera. Nero showtime burned them nicely but onlt nero show time can open them. Windows asks if I wanna save the pictures to CD but when I try I get an error message saying its the wrong kind of CD. Thats what I had expected from Windows the built in software is laughable. All I want to do is burn the pictures onto a CD so they can be professionally printed!
Jpeg would be the normal format to save as, why not try printing them yourself if only onto plain paper to begin with, then get some photo paper, you may be surprised at the results if you have a reasonable printer and it is a cheap, easy and interesting thing to do. This is what I do and get immediate results, for really good quality there is as of yet no substitute for film.
Dont forget Jpeg is alossy format the more you play with them they will deterioate.Save the special ones as as psp then s suggested go for homeprinting most decent Photo printeres will = or better Boots.I've printed from negatives and found the boots prints not only inferior but had been marginally cropped
Thanks for your imput eedcam,as Diemmess has said jpeg is not the ideal format if you want to experiment. As I understand things Alf 58 only wants to print a few snaps so my way of thinking is get a pack of glossy paper and give it a try unless he has a really crap printer. I use a fairly old cheap Canon i560 and get what I consider to be reasonable photos. I suppose it depends on one`s individual expectations.
