Menu Functions: Playback
So next up is we're gonna go into the playback menu, and in order to get here you have to hit the playback button and then you have to hit the menu button, and then you will have special access to the playback menu. You can also get to the set up menu as well. But this is the only way to get into the playback menu. And so in here, let's dive in to page one of four on the playback menu. You can protect images, which means you will not be allowed to delete them. You can still form at the memory card, and that will delete the images, but you just simply can't delete them on their own. You could rotate images. Three. Only reason you would need to do this is if you were doing a slideshow straight from the camera and you wanted to rotate a vertical image, for instance. You can erase images Now there is a garbage can button on the back of the camera, which is what I normally used to delete images. But if there are a lot of images you wanted toe delete, there'll be less button pressing. If you...
go to the delete option and excuse me the erase option and then simply go through highlighting the images you want deleted and then pressing the erase button Once you can rate your images, which is a great way to spend an hour or two in the airport waiting for that long layover that you might have making use either time. Rating your images, you could do a little slide show on the back of the camera, and this is going to simply set things up for how you want your images to be shown. And then you can play those digest movies. That's the ones where it shoots a fort Little a short little four second clip, along with still images and so you can play through those. ITT's kind of a goofy little things I've said before. You can look for images on your camera by doing a search by either looking for images that are rated of a particular rating or shot on a particular date, or looking for still move still images or movie images, and there's a couple of other ways in there as well to look for images that are on your car. We have creative filters that we can add to our images after we have taken a photograph. So let's sort of go ahead, take a look at that on the camera. So what I'm gonna do is I'm gonna hit playback on the camera and I'm gonna go find an image from earlier just to play with Let's go back. We don't want a picture of me on there, so let's Okay, let's just take this image of our cannon lens here in front. And so this is our image. And so what we're going to do here if I can recall correctly As I hit the cue button and I can rotate and I could do rating image search, I can resize it cropping. And here we go creative filters. And so I conduce. Oh, a greeny black and white version of this image, soft focus and a whole bunch of these different filters that we had talked about before. Now, if you say well, this is a really important image. I don't want to mess with this image. This is fine. The camera's gonna create a copy of it, So I'm gonna do a grainy black and white of this image and it just created a grainy black and white And I can control health Intense. The setting is here, so I'm gonna go Super intense contrast. Hi. I'm gonna hit the set button. Do I want to save a new image? Yes. If I hit Cancel, it just backs out of the whole thing. But now what I'm gonna do is I'm gonna have a second version of that image, which is this grainy black and white image. I want to see the new image. Sure, let's see it right now. So here is that greeny black and white version, and it unfortunately drops it in at the end of the series of photo, so I'd have to go back and find the earlier photo. But this photo if I pull up information is Let's see, this is picture 27 of 27. The original image. Let's see. Let me just go back real quickly. And it was somewhere back in here. I think this was the original image right here, which is pictured 10 of 27. And so it allows you to go in. And you can add these customized filters later. You don't have to shoot at the time you're taking the photo doing it, but it is nice to see the effect when you are shooting it. So there are two different ways of doing the same thing. One before one. After all right, you can resize your images. This should be really downsized. You can't up size. You can only make them smaller. But if you wanted to take a J peg and make it a smaller size, which was more appropriate for emailing, that would be the main purpose. Here you can crop your images to If you were, did not have your computer with you, and you wanted to adjust something a little bit before you off. Send it off of the camera. You can do a red eye correction right in the camera. So this is one of the reasons why I don't bother with using red eye reduction in the camera adds that you can do it later. Now will only work with JPEG images, and I'll mention that the cropping will only work with JPEG images as well. If you want took your camera upto a printer. There are all sorts of settings about how big a print and how many prints and which picture you're gonna print. And this is where you can go in and make all those customization is within their There is also a set up for doing a photo album or what they call a photo book, and you can go in here and you can collect images and have them designated for different types of photo books. Most people are just gonna off load and work on a computer. But if you didn't have a computer, you do have some organizing capabilities of your images right in the camera, moving over to page three in the playback menu. The transition effects. This is a very little minor thing you might have seen when I was playing back images. They would, uh, have a little transition between the images as you went from one image to the next. Uh, frankly, I find it a little annoying, and I just want to turn it off. But if you like it, you can leave it turn on. Next up is the index effect, and it has kind of a three d grid flyover. Look to the images as you're going back and forth. It's kind of okay. It doesn't really change the way that you're scanning through images, but when you have a big grid of images, it's a little bit more of a three dimensional look to it, and it doesn't really get in the way. So I leave. That turned on the scrolling display. I think this is one that you might have seen is enlarges the selected image so that you can see it a little bit easier. And as an image gets further away, it gets smaller. I know Apple has a similar type viewing system when you're going through their navigating system looking for albums on ITunes, for instance, auto rotate kind of an interesting feature here. This is where the cameras senses whether you're shooting a vertical or horizontal image, and normally the camera wants to rotate the image for you. But I actually like having it turned off in many cases because I want to get the image as large as possible. If you are going to be doing this using the camera and showing images on a TV, that's a reason definitely to leave it on. But, um, I think I may have got my recommendation wrong there. I think I want to turn that one off. All right, Resume. Do you want to see the last scene shot that you were just playing back or the last one in this series? So if you recall earlier I had shots in my image, but I was working with picture number 10. So when I went hit Play doh, I wanted to go back to number 10 or number 27 the last scene or the last shot. Generally, we want to go back and see the last scene shot, at least for me. That is so. It seems to be the more logical place to keep it kept. Alright, Final page in the playback menu is which information screens do you like to see when you play back an image, and this will be adjusted by simply hitting the info button on your camera and you'll be able to cycle through the different displays that are available. All right, when you hit the magnify button, how much does your image get magnified? Yeah, and you can choose different settings here eight times seems to be pretty good, but choose what you like
