I made the adjustments you said but could not find where to set EV + 1/3 or 2/3
The first is 400 isc and the second is 200 iso. iso 400 still seems to have grain in it.

rebs-

Yes, you would expect to see a bit of noise/grain at ISO 400. Exposure Compensation is on the 4 way controller on the back of the camera at the 12 o'clock position. You could probably get by with ISO 200 and +0.7 on the Exposure Compensation. try it and see how it looks. You have another option as well: download a free copy of Picasa from www.google.com, and you can do a little bit of tweaking yourself to brighten your photo a bit.

Your photos look "much improved."

Try this:

Use the Shutter-priority mode - the "S" on the camera dial.

Adjust shutter speed. Set it to 1/15. 1/30 is too fast still - 1/15 will yield you another stop of brightness.

Of course, make sure flash is on.

ISO set to 200.

Your photos look great Rebs...you're off and running...have fun...they both look very good to me...

The settings I gave are for indoors and outdoors Rebs...you will get very sharp out of camera photos that way...they may have a little more noise/graininess in the background which you can use any noise reduction software to remove or you can go to a +1 Sharpness and -1 Noise Reduction setting in your camera and shoot in "A" Mode to see if that gives you a better out of camera photo to your liking...

Sarah thanks for pointing out where the EV adjustment is, i should have been able to find it myself if I had read the manual, lol
Tech thank you I will give that a try.
LTZ Thank you for all the help, could you repeat the outdoor settings you gave me before, I cannot find them. The outdoor pics I uploaded were taken in auto mode.

Also I am using Picasa to view the pics and where I see the grain mainly when going to 100%, what is that equivalent to in terms of 2X, 4X etc ?

Thank you to everyone that is helping me, I sincerely appreciate it.
