choppy pictures


Fedora core5 "After" replacing the camera battery, there was no problem mounting the camera as a mass storage device. I had full access to the pictures, copy, delete or edit. The problem is that if I increase the resolution any higher than 640x480, the pictures are chopped into multiple strips that overlap. Not really a major problem, zooming in at 640x480 provides the necessary clarity. Wondering if anyone else had this problem, and if there is a possibly a workaround?

This sounds like it's a problem with your image viewer. If not, then it's a problem with your camera. What image viewer are you using?

I generally use gimp for everything, photos normally open with gThumb, I also tried showfoto, same problem with all. Following suggestions I had a friend with WindowXP open picture files with no problem at any resolution, eliminate the camera as the problem. I did notice the camera memory is formatted in vfat, should I format it in ext3? I will never be a graphics person.

That's odd... Maybe you have a bad libjpeg, or maybe the images use non-standard jpeg options? Post a link to one of the pictures and I'll see if I can open it.

ooh I wouldn't do that ... it is very likely that your camera's firmware does not support ext3
