Probably silly question but tough for me

I am an Olympus OEM D 5 Mark II user with several lenses. The manual, as I'm sure everyone has encountered, basically, is awful. I need assistance with changing the pixels. Every time I want to have one of my pics enlarged and printed, I am told to raise the pixels so that the picture will look clearer.

How do I change the pixels and is there anything else I need to do to ensure clarity of large pics to be printed. Also, does anyone have any good tutorials on setting up the camera?

Thank you in advance from an amateur

Re: Probably silly question but tough for me

Hi Pearl,

Let's help you!

First of all we need to know which recording size your camera is set to. This could be RAW, LF (Large Fine), LSF (Large Super Fine), MN (Medium Normal), SN (Small Normal) etc.

Can you find this information? If not, let us know which camera mode you are using (P, S, A, M, iAuto, Scene) - etc.

Ian

Re: Probably silly question but tough for me

look at page 54 of this manual http://www.olympusamerica.com/files/..._manual_en.pdf and check your settings

at L-SF you should have a picture capable of being printed at huge sizes

regards
Andy

Re: Probably silly question but tough for me

Hi Ian, John and Andy
I am set on Large/Super fine (which I just did today)
On pixel count I do not have a choice of Large. Middle is set to 3200 x 2400
small is set to 1280 x 960

Anything next?

Pearl

Re: Probably silly question but tough for me

Large Super Fine is the best recording mode apart from RAW to be in so the focus has to move on to how you provide the printing service your images. Do you just give them a camera image without any changes along the way or do you use software to edit the images first, or sharing software? Do you use, for example, an app on your phone?

It seems that somewhere along the way your images might be resized and made smaller and lower in resolution.
