Are you shooting in "raw" format, or are you just describing a "raw" picture
as one that is recorded on the memory card in your camera. I don't doubt
what you've described, but it doesn't make sense that transfering the files
to your computer changes the aspect ratio! Are you missing something in the
process that permits you to set the aspect ratio during the transfer? I
would transfer the files directly as they are on the storage media in the
camera and use software compatable with the file format you've shot to edit
and print the pictures.
Does your Pentax appear as a disk drive when attached to the computer with a
USB cable? If so you can right click start, left click explore, cursor down
to the letter drive that is actually your camera and left click, left click
on one of the image files in the right window, go up to edit on the toolbar,
click select all, and drag-copy the files (left click and drag) to the
folder of your choice. They should transfer just as they are on the memory
card in the camera. I use a card reader, insert the memory card from my
camera, and follow the same directions I gave above. I'd also suggest
setting up a subfolder for each set of pictures as the My Pictures folder
will end up with hundreds of image files eventually and I've found it
convenient to keep them in separate folders named for the event at which > pictures were taken.
Sorry Burt I have checked the jpeg pictures again in the "My Pictures"
folder they are in the same aspect ratio as whats on the camera.I tried
your way of transferring the photographs too but found the end results
the same as what I do.
When I plug in my camera an auto play box comes up asking me what I
want to do with the pictures I select copy pictures to "My Pictures "
folder using windows camera or fax viewer. I name the folder first to
suit the event so I don't have pictures everywhere. Then a wizard comes
up and completes the operation.
I just don't know why the pictures are being enlarge when I print them,
like I said I took a portrait shot yesterday and framed the shot just
right with no extra detail or overhang.but when I go to print it using
the Cannons "Easyprint" setup the photo has detail chopped or cropped
all around the print, like some of the people have their heads chopped
off slightly. I tried the same task on my friends older Cannon printer
and the same thing happen. I'm at a lost to know why the printer does
this because the picture I'm using is in it's native state it hasn't
been edited prior, I'm selecting 6"x4" in the paper selection panel.
