help problems encountered
I reecently obtained a used D70 nikon ,50mm f15 lens and it aslo came with a sandisk ultra II 2GB compact flash card .i installed the latest pictureproject software on my acer laptop with vista..

I went ahead and started shooting photos around the house and in and downloaded the images via usb cable ..

I did try out the capabilities of the software as to editing the brightness, sharpness and etc. everything was good and I thought some portrait photos were good..

Late in the evening I opened the photos again to view and 2 of the photos had problems where the out of focus blurred effect whites on the portraits now had color in them which destroyed the images.

I wanna kow what could be the problem with it...

Can you post an example? Difficult to work out what the porblem is without seeing it. Instructions on how to do this are in the small print at the bottom of the page.Best wishesMike..

When you edited the images did you keep the original images and save the edited images under new names, or did you overwrite the original images?.

If the former, is the problem with the original images, with the edited images or with both?.

The most likely explanation is that you accidentally did something to the images during editing. What editing software did you use?Chris R..

I am just using the nikon picture project software ..

When editing - I did not change the name of the photos - I just edited and the software would still have data on the orignal and then the changes you have made...

The colour in green looks like an area with blown highlights - an area where everything is pure white with no detail. It is likely that there is an option in the Nikon software to shown blown highlights and if you turn it off the colour should disappear..

However, I am surprised that the blown highlights colour still shows after you have saved the image.Chris R..

Could I make a suggestion? In your shoes, I'd make a folder on the laptop called "Originals" and download all the pictures from the card again. That way you'll have a spare set should something be wrong with the software. (It's a good idea to do this anyway.).

Then could you copy the original to your website and tell us where it is. Looking at the original might give us the clue..

Nice picture (otherwise) btw.

The coloured areas are definitely blown highlights. The Nikon software is colouring them to make them visible, temporarily. You must be able to turn this off somewhere in the software. Maybe try the Nikon D70 forum on this site to find out how to do this since the problem is a peculiarity of the Nikon software.Chris R..

Chris is exactly right. Often editing software has the option to make 'blown' areas (bright white, no detail) and black areas (with no shadow detail) obvious on-screen by colouring them in a garish colour as a warning; this helps to set the brightness, contrast settings etc. because these areas should be minimised as far as possible. It must be possible to turn this off..

By the way I would be surprised if your saved files are affected... normally this type of highlighting is for display purposes only, it will not actually be included in the saved image. In which case there must be a difference in the settings used to view the files..

Best wishesMike..
