I keep reading all these wonderful reviews about the FZ3. I have not been happy with the outcome of my pictures. I'm wondering if it's something I'm doing wrong. Admittedly, I don't know alot about photography and have been reluctant to play with the settings. I took two identical pictures, indoors. One with my FZ3 and another with a Canon PowerShot S50. Both on the "auto" setting. The colors with the Canon were outstanding and very vibrant. The colors with the FZ3 are dull, almost grayish. The picture also was not "crisp"; had a bit of fuzziness to it. Like others, I've contacted Panasonic and gotten no where. Is it me? Is it the camera? I hope it's me because after 9 months I can't return the camera anymore.

It would be very helpful if you could post these pictures. It's hard to tell just by description... :roll:

I understand how to post a picture, but can you tell me how I make it smaller to meet the 250400 bytes limit?

I think this free Google program will do what you want

I would use Paint in windows just to get them up here. Picasa will do it but it wipes out the EXIF info and gives IE a hard time if you try to check with it.



Just open the drawing in Paint (right click, open with) and do a Save As so you don't mess with the original, then in the Image pulldown select - Stretch/Skew. Enter you're desired % in both the hor and ver boxes (30-35% posts up here fine I think) and enter. Be sure to save it again before closing.



Also, you can check the file size and pixel counts to be sure it's small enough under the Image pulldown - Attributes...



Post up...

If you use windows, just download this utility from microsoft for resizing images..install the software and then you can just right click on the image and resize to whatever resolution you like..

I don't think it lets me post two at the same time, so I'll start with the Canon and do the Panasonic next.
