Default Load Images Back to Card

Now that I have ordered a 5700, a friend at work wants to buy my 4500. She wants to know whether she could load images back onto the compact flash card after adjusting in Elements and show them on a big screen TV.

Thanks for you wisdom.

Bob

Olympus says not to move a card with pics ttaken on one of its other models to a different without deleting pics, nikon may not like them after. You can buy a dazzle card reader with software that will allow you to put pics on a cd and playbackk in home dvd, cost is under $20.

Thanks, Gary, but what I mean is: if she takes pictures with the 4500, downloads them to her computer to dress them up, can she then transfer them back to the 4500 for playing on TV?

Thanks again.

I have a 4500 and Nikon has strange extensions for their jpeg information. Browsing with XP, rotating the pic, and other modifications would make the jpeg into something the Nikon 4500 and Nikon software could have trouble recognizing.

Even jpegs within their own models differ, if what I was reading was correct.

I also think Nikon does not have a utility for the transfer back to card process and I have not heard of third party solutions.

Would a CF card reader allow you to move files and then you can view with the camera? With a blank card, of course.

The best bet may be to have it on a CD as suggested and to use another vid out source like a laptop, regular system, DVD or other type players that play picture files. Maybe even a dedicated machine that reads jpegs.

Hi Robert,
Of course any card reader will allow transfer of files each way. The problem with copying them back to the card to be manipulated by the camera is that the EXIF header must be intact. Some software keeps it, some doesn't. I don't know about Elements. The image which you actually see on the camera's LCD is a small thumbnail which is part of the header's file. Once the file is modified, this may or may not be still available depending on the way the software handles the file. The newer versions of PhotoShop preserve this information, but older versions even as late as 5.0 do not. The bottom line is that she may or may not be able to manipulate then copy back and play them on the TV. No problem copying them back - it's the "playing" part which may be problematical.

Best regards,

Lin
