Hi, my name is Steve. I'll try and help you.
Please let me know when you are there.
At last. I have had huge problems registering.
Hi there. I paused the clock. Let's see what we can do.
So, when you refer to zoom, you are talking about the feature on Ebay that allows you to mouse over the main photo and you see a zoomed in version??
Ok. What format are your photos when you upload them? JPGs?
This has nothing to do with your camera or post processing. It is an eBay feature. Hold on please and I will look for you.
You need to use the Advance Listing Tool when you post your auctions. If you use the Simple Tool, you will not get the Zoom.
Where do I find that?
Also, let me backtrack on one of my previous statement - the photo has to be at least 1600 pixels wide.
So that when it does zoom, it is not pixelated.
How large in pixels are your image files?
How do I set that on the camera?
Let me look at the manual - hold on.
Here you go. CLICK HERE
Just set it to Large.
And when you are manipulating the photo in your computer, don't shrink it below 1600 pixels wide.
Sorry Steve - I cant find the way to reset the pixel size. It doesn't seem to be in the menu.
You need to be in Auto.
Actually you don't but let's start there.
If you have never done this, it's likely that your photos are already the correct size.
Are you using the Advanced Listing Tool when you post to eBay?

Are you there?
Yes, just printed of the Ebay advice page, so I can follow that later. Still confused about Camera setting. Do you think default will be OK and with AUTO. Do I need to use Zoom function and is pixel size 640 x 480 OK?
Also , still can,t find how to alter pixel size if I need to.
Ok, grab your camera.
Press the Func Set button
On the left side of the screen near teh bottom, you will have an L ir an M1 or M2 or S or something else.
What do you see?
Sorry about the typos.
L, M1, M2, S or W.
Change it to L or even M1 will work fine,
I am in M2 and it says 1600 x 1200
Stay with that.
So it's not your camera.
You are good to go.
I would probably go to M1 though, or L.
M1 is 2816 x 2112
Do I transfer just into My Pictures and from there to Ebay without doing anything else?
Unless you want to trim the photo.
So just to recap - You reckon I am OK on AUTO and M1 OR M2 . Transfer without editing into My Pictures. Then onto Ebay using Advance Listing Tool? That correct?
Will M2 or M1 fit Ebay? I thought they had to be 640
No. YOu can upload larger photos. 640 will not zoom.
