Brora photos '20

Well, that's different. If you want to keep a photo for a print, you would need a bigger file. But to make every photo a big file is a bit overkill. My professional stock photos are jpgs produced from tiffs, and those jpgs are usually only around 10Mb files (4000 x 2666 pixels).

Trying to achieve the style of photo you took with The Caithie 2 photo. But not really managing ha... Is 4.3 better for taking photos of friends and holidays and 16.9 for wider areas eg landscapes?

Morning Deirdre, I shoot 16:9 all the time now. Most cameras are set up for 3:2, but all television screens and computer screens and phone screens are 16:9 now, I believe, so 16:9 tends to look more natural in my opinion. There is no right or wrong on this. 16:9 does not work for portrait oriented photos though, like the nice photo above, they would be better at 3:2 on a camera, but not sure about a camera phone as I've never used one :ponder:

I think you're perfect with that setting, at least on landscape oriented photos. Keep your photos landscape oriented for now as that setting is ideal. 2560x1440 @ 3.7 Mp is also ideal for internet sharing and viewing on computers. It's perfect.

That's a big difference! 16:9 does look much better, in my opinion. The colours and contrasts are excellent as well, and the whole photo is nicely exposed. Yes, that's quite excellent. You're learning :music:

I cropped it for you, it works now. You can see the photos, and the more you use your camera, the easier it will be to capture what it is you're seeing. See how much better the photo is with the tree on a third?

And here it is with a bit of post processing. You can get apps, filters and things you can use on your photos on your phone to bring out colours and contrasts. I have no experience with camera apps for phones though, so I've no idea about them. By the way, this is your photo, you took this, all I did was crop it and bring out some colour.
