I have recently purchased a new 550 with the standard 18-55mm lense. This is my first SLR so I am a novice. I have taken a lot of pictures using different settings and they looked great when viewing on the camera´s screen. However when I transferred them to my Sony VAIO laptop (which is only a year old) the pictures looked completely different, lacking in the quality and sharpness I was expecting. I was very disappointed as they were much the same as I was getting from a cheap compact camera. I am taking the pictures at the largest size setting so as not to lose quality.
I have not had a chance to viem them on a different computer. If anybody has any suggestions or advice it would appreciate it. I am away from home at the moment and may not have internet access for another week but will reply as soon as possible.
Thanks in advance.
