    I just got my xti (first digital camera I have ever had), so I was hoping to find someone that can answer some questions. What setting do you keep your camera to keep the best quality. Sometimes when I shoot it will say "BUSY", am I doing something wrong? Is there a way to change color to black and white? Is there a way to change a part of your picture to b/w and leave the rest color, or visa versa? See I told you I had some questions...believe it or not I still have lots more, but my brain can only retain so much at one time.:mrgreen: Thanks!

    I think I must be too old or too stupid (could even be both) to understand how to get a message on here, or where it gets posted.

    Hi Michelle, Welcome. I'll try to help.

    1-What setting do you keep your camera to keep the best quality.
    You need to shoot RAW or Large Fine at ISO 100 for highest quality.

    2-Sometimes when I shoot it will say "BUSY", am I doing something wrong?
    This is because you are using flash or have taken the limit of sequential shots. This is normal

    3-Is there a way to change color to black and white?
    This can be found in the menu under parameters.

    4-Is there a way to change a part of your picture to b/w and leave the rest color, or visa versa?
    This is called selective coloring. It cannot be done with the camera. You need to use postprocessing software like Paint shop pro or Photoshop.

    Read your manual thoroughly

    You'll find your messages under User CP (top right) under subscriptions.

    =============
    Are you a professional...you sound like you know what you are doing...unlike me! The problem I am having is when I take photos and send them to someone, the file is huge, I don't want to loose the quality, so what do you suggest?

    No, I don't shoot professionally.

    There are many different kinds of software to help you resize a photo, two of which I mentioned above (selective coloring). However, I would suggest installing Digital Photo Professional that came with your camera. This will allow you to adjust, sharpen, crop, resize and convert your photos very easily. For web images, I would recommend resizing to 640x480 or smaller.

    good luck

    If I resize to 640x will this effect the quality, if say, I wanted to make a 11x14?
