Printing Digital Pics Question - Photography

Hello, I have an Olympus Camedia D40 zoom. I always save pictures to a CD and then take to Costco or Sam's Club for printing. The picture quality has always come out perfect...until two days ago.... Recently, the pictures (up to 5x7) came back like they were missing pixels or something. Thinking it was Sam's Club's equipment fault, I printed out on an HP 940C printer and the quality was similar (very poor). I e-mailed a picture to a friend and the copy she printed out was bad, too. Yet, when looking at the camera's minitor, the photos look crisp ...

    Default Printing Digital Pics Question

    Hello,

    I have an Olympus Camedia D40 zoom. I always save pictures to a CD and then
    take to Costco or Sam's Club for printing. The picture quality has always
    come out perfect...until two days ago....

    Recently, the pictures (up to 5x7) came back like they were missing pixels
    or something. Thinking it was Sam's Club's equipment fault, I printed out
    on an HP 940C printer and the quality was similar (very poor). I e-mailed a
    picture to a friend and the copy she printed out was bad, too.

    Yet, when looking at the camera's minitor, the photos look crisp and
    perfect. Even when viewing the pictures on Camedia Master, they look
    perfect. Something is going wrong somewhere.

    I haven't taken the smart media card itself to Sam's (that is the next
    option), but I would like to know what has gone wrong, or what I am doing
    wrong.

    Thanks for any help,
    Elizabeth

    The screen is most probably 800 X 600 or 1024 X 786, the size of a 7 X 5
    print is 2100 X 1500 at 300dpi, generally if the picture at 100% size fits
    on the screen the print out won't look very good, it needs to be bigger.
