Poor VCD Image Resolution


fisteris

Question

Up to now I have used film, had images transferred to cd and then downloaded the images to my hard drive. ("My Pictures"). From there, I edited the pictures, created a slide show using storyboard and made vcd's. The resolution of the images has been poor and I was told that this was due to using film converted to cd etc.

So... I now have a five megapixel camera, took pictures at the highest resolution, downloaded to "MY Pictures" and used the same procedure dpi as above and the results were the same! Unsharp images.

When looking at the data from each image on the storyboard the data read 180 dpi. I was told that print quality is 300 dpi. I don't know what that means.

What adjustments can be made to get acceptable image quality?

If they look good on the computer, burn them to a DVD, not a CD. VCD and SVCD productions may result in low quality when viewing on your set top DVD player.

Thanks gpb. I don't have a dvd burner, presently. Could my problem be the result of too much information (530 images) causing an automatic drop in resolution to allow for this quantity to be processed etc.?

I don't know if it drops the resolution. DVD burners are relatively inexpensive now, except for Plextors. Pioneer and LiteOn are good. BenQ no longer manufactures DVD burners, but I would recommend them if you can find a DW 1620, DW 1650 or DW 1655 (LightScribe) if you can find one.
