Brand new to the digital field. We have the DX6440. Have the 32x Lexar 256 SD card in it.

At a party at our church last night, I was taking pictures. I set it to auto. Yes, it was indoors. I'm assuming that wasn't the right setting. We had pictures that were very, very dark but turned out nice when I edited them on the computer and we also got 2 or 3 pictures that had (what looked like) little bugs on the peoples face.

Is there a way to edit the "bugs" off the faces because those pictures are so nice except for that. What am I doing wrong to get those on my pictures.

What should have I done or set the camera at since we were inside?



Thanks for helping me learn.

kgy,,,post some pics here for us to see,,,we need to see what you are seeing to help..

But if you are taking the pics in a low light as a church usually is then you can really only take pics up to about 10 feet,,,the specs say you can go to 16 feet but that really isn`t going to happen,,,the flash is too weak to go beyond ten feet in reality..

And in this type of enviroment the night shot mode may help you more...

I don`t think you can put an external flash with the DX6440 either...

Anyway post a few that are untouched for us to see...

Also right click on the pic in ES and tell us what the shutter speed,aperature,mode,flash,etc is for the given photo,,,it will tell us a lot too..

You could clone out the "bugs" with the clone tool.

What was the rest of the picture like? Were there "bugs" all over it orwas it just on the faces.

Best post an example for us to see. (I bet it's noise)

Here's my quick take on it.

It always works better with the full sizedimage but this was just a quick tidy up.
