Changing the Size and Type of an Image and Saving using ZoomBrowser EX Ver6.7.


To change the size or type of a captured image (still image) and save it as a different file, use the [Export] function of the bundled software, ZoomBrowser EX. Using [Export Still Images] of the [Export] function, you can convert a JPEG image to a TIFF image, or reduce the size of an image.

  • To perform these operations, ZoomBrowser EX must be installed from the supplied CD-ROM.
  • In this section, Windows 7 is used as an example. Depending on the version of Windows you are using, on-screen displays and operations may differ slightly.
  • To change the type of RAW images, please use Digital Photo Professional. For more information, refer to .
