    Photos NOT OK to edit
    Hi all,

    I am new to the forum, but I have spoken with 2 people now who have pictures that are black and white with color splashed in. When I asked them how they did that or what software they used....they said it was a setting their friends used ON their camera.

    Does anyone know what setting this could be? I have 3 cameras I can work with on this and I have looked through the manuals and see nothing on doing this directly on the camera. I know you can do it in photo editing software, but I would love to be able to do it directly on the camera if possible.

    These are the cameras I have:

    Olympus E-510 (Digital SLR)
    Olympus Stylus 730
    Olympus Stylus 770 SW (waterproof camera)

    My husband has the Olympus E-500 (digital SLR)

    So...does anyone have any suggestions or know the setting that does this??? My cameras arent really old, but I guess it could be a new setting??? Any help would be great! I leave for vacation on Sunday and would love to have it figured out by then!:heart:

    In my experience, the only cameras that I have seen this on are certain Canon point-and-shoots. Honestly, it's kind of a gimmicky thing- don't be upset that your cameras don't have it.

    It can be done fairly easily with Photoshop or GIMP.
