Handling pictures on a Memory Stick media

Pictures taken by a digital still camera

Still pictures taken by a digital still camera or digital video camera and stored on a Memory Stick media use a standard picture format called Digital Camera Format (DCF).

This is a different format from the one used by PictureGear Pocket which is called "PGP."

PictureGear Pocket can show DCF format pictures (camera picture) and store them in the CLIE handheld or on a Memory Stick media after converting to PGP format (PDA picture). The CLIE handheld can then manage these pictures.

Browsing the pictures on Memory Stick media

1. Insert a Memory Stick media into the CLIE handheld.

2. In the Storage list at the top of the screen, change [ ▼ Internal ] to

[ ▼ MS ].

3. Use the Mode switch at the bottom of the screen to select the picture format.

Select DCF to display the camera picture(s) on a Memory Stick media. With this selection, the function of PictureGear Pocket is limited and the screen and the icon displays are changed for DCF exclusively.

See "Restrictions on Camera Picture" on page 3.4.

Select PGP to display PDA pictures on a Memory Stick media. Operate in the same way as PDA pictures with the CLIE handheld.

4. Switch the Storage list back to [ ▼ Internal ] to display PGP format pictures with the CLIE handheld.

PGP format.

Using PictureGear Pocket in other applications

Pasting to Address Book

You can paste a picture in PictureGear Pocket to a standard

Address Book application.

For further details, refer to the CLIE handheld Operating Instructions manual.

Regarding DCF

DCF (Design rule for Camera File system) is an industry standard format for storing pictures established by JEIDA (Japan Electronic

Industry Development Association).

DCF format pictures are stored in the "DCIM" directory of Memory Stick media.

PictureGear Pocket displays "Thumbnail pictures" (160x120 dots) of the DCF format pictures. Therefore, the quality is inferior to the real picture.

In order to display clearer pictures with PictureGear Pocket, it is recommended to use PictureGear Lite on your Computer when converting the pictures to PGP format and storing on a Memory Stick media.

See "PictureGear Lite" on page 4.
