Pic Ok, this is much better.

Sorry about the original empty post. I tried to load it this morning but it didn't work out.

Anyway, still going through the learning curve for my new FZ-7. Comments or ideas welcome.

I have a question.

My wife's original point and shoot Kodak came with the EasyShare software.

Now everything defaults to an EasyShare JPEG.

Does anyone know how to keep the software but not have it the default .jpg mode? It's almost like it's become an entity unto itself! Thanks in advance.

Hello dcf12: The problem you have is all to do with "File Associations"

It's very common for newly installed programs to make themselves the default application for certain file types, as you described.

Presumeably you would prefer some other program to view/edit the jpegs, and so you need to change the file association for the jpeg file types to that program.

Doing this depends on your operating system, but one way is to:

Open Windows explorer. Find a jpeg image file. Hold down shift & right click the mouse on that jpeg file. A small window opens. Click on "open with". There you will see a list of applications. Highlight the application you want to use. Place a tick in the box to "always use this", then click OK.

Maybe that or some other method will work for you. Have a look in your operating system's help under 'file associations/types' for more information.

I tried that Baz and it worked.

Thanks.

I might end upuninstalling the Kodak software. I am under the impression the Kodak software changes the jpeg qualities of the photos.

Thanks again.
