KLMom-

You have really done a great job. There is a HUGE improvement in your photos from yesterday (12/02) to today (12/03)! Congratulations! That is a great improvement. So can you now see what has to be done? Just use Picasa2 and make the adjustments that you require, and you are set!

Please, please, no offence intended. I am just attempting to work Jen through this rather important learning process. As BOTH you and I know. it is an incremental process.

well, thank you both for your input. I guess I will just keep trying and trying till I get it right. This would be much much easier if the manual I got wasn't so hard to understand. It made it really confusing. Back to my question on AF and metering? Where should it be on a daily basis? I have no clue? Thanks

That is why folks such as myself and my husband , plus many others, write 200+ page books to explain how to really get the very most out of those so called, "simple, very automatic, digital cameras."

Hi again Kayleezemom

Congratulations on the big improvement.

Regarding your questions, leave the settings I gave you for 99% of your shots, for indoor shots just adjust your EXPOSURE COMPENSATION back from +1 or +2 notches as for your snow shots to 0 or even -1 notch for optium results, on a bright sunny day with no snow-1 or -2 notches will work well.

At dusk with failing light just raise the ISO to ISO 200 or ISO 400.

Regards Wirraway
