Hello

I signed up to this Forums 10 minutes ago, and I would like to seek some help please.

Every picture I take results in two files on SD, one of which is a Microsoft Office Document Imaging File with same name as the TIFF file, and always 9.01 MB in size.

Can anyone please advise what maked this happen and what must I do to stop this happening.

My memory cards get filled up very quickly

Thanks in Advance

Zafira

It will be helpful to say what camera you use, and what do you mean by <Microsoft Office Document Imaging File> - what is the extension of the file.

As I know when a TIFF file is created on the SD card (in the FZ) the camera creates a JPG file too.

Judging from your topic heading, I'm guessing you have the FZ20.

Set your camera to record .jpg rather than .tif. If you don't know how to do this, read the manual.

Jpg, files are much smaller than tif. files and they are virtually the same right out the camera. You'll get a lot more photos on your memory cards this way.

The main reason it shows up as a MS Office Document Imaging File is due to the fact that the Tiff file types are set to open with the MS Imaging software. You can change it to open in a different application by going to My Computer then chose Tools then File Types. Go to the Tif and Tiff file types and associate it with the photo application of your choice. Hope this helps!

Many thanks indeed for your prompt and helpful replies.

Yes I had picture quality set to TIFF because I thought I needed this format to carry out editting with Photoshop7, but taking your advice, I have set quality to Jpg , and I don't see much difference (Except for picture size on SD card)

Again thanks for sharing your wisdom with me
