Pablo-

The images opened for me just fine. As I see it, and I could be wrong, the photo of the Petuniais over exposed, due to the closeness of the camera's flash. You can easily reduce the output of the flash by putting your finger over the flash lens cover.

I did just that when I took the attached photo. The photo environment was in deep shade, so I used fill flash. However, because I was very close to the flower, I reduced the flash output by putting my finger over the flash lens/cover.

I'd say it's not so much overexposed as slightly over-saturated... a problem I have from time to timewith my 6490. I'd say you've got some pretty good resolution goint in this shot. I find it hard to resist throwing another close up filter on and getting rediculously close when there is no need. Good work.

The flash can be the problem Pablo! Try upping the exposure compensation and not using the flash! Also it doesn't hurt to add in an outside source of light other than the flash!! Then again it could be over saturatin, but you can change that in the menu! Put it on neutral color and try it again!!Just a thought or two!

Thanks to all - I don't have a neutral color option on my software but I did reduce some exposure and reduced the total number of pixels. Will now try it again. Pablo

Ah ha it did work this time.
