By using other applications:
ImageBrowser gives you additional power when you use it
together with the following applications. (You can start these
applications from within ImageBrowser.)
■ PhotoStitch
• You can stitch multiple images (which were split and shot
individually using functions like the camera's Stitch Assist
mode) together to form a single, large size, panoramic
picture.
• You can stitch images horizontally or vertically or in a matrix
format.
• When you shoot the surroundings in 360 degrees, you can
later stitch the images to form a 360-degree cylindrical
shape. By saving this stitched image in QuickTime VR format,
you can then get a virtual view of the various parts of the
image.

Using Contextual Menus
When you hold down the [control] key and click the mouse
button, a menu is displayed. This is a contextual menu.
In ImageBrowser, you can access many useful functions through
contextual menus.
For example, when you hold down the [control] key and click
an image, the following contextual menu appears.
A contextual menu is, as its name implies, a menu whose
options vary according to the context. It is a collection of the
most commonly used buttons and commands that apply to a
given situation.
Contextual menus allow you to use ImageBrowser more
efficiently. When you feel comfortable with ImageBrowser, try
using the contextual menus in different situations and you will
be impressed with their convenience.

Saving the “My Camera Settings” to the Camera (6/10)
In Mac OS 9, you can use the SimpleSound program, which is
supplied as a standard part of the Mac OS. However, this
program cannot save files in the WAV format. After you have
recorded and saved a sound file, use a program such as ArcSoft
VideoImpression to change the format to a WAV file. The
detailed creation instructions are explained in the next topic.
Create new files before adding them
Start by creating the image or sound file that will become the
camera start-up image or sound setting and save it to the
computer.
■ Creating a Start-Up Image File
■ Procedures for Creating a Sound File (Mac OS 9 Only)
Create an image file using an image editing program. The file
should be in the JPEG format, 320 x 240 pixels, and less than
20KB.
This topic explains how to use SimpleSound to record and save
a sound file and ArcSoft VideoImpression to convert the file
into a WAV format file.

• To confirm whether your camera supports remote shooting or
not, check the guides that accompanied the camera.
• Ensure that the camera and computer are connected with a
USB cable and that the camera is ready to communicate before
attempting remote shooting. If the camera is equipped with a
lens cover, ensure that it is open.
• Ensure that you turn off your computer’s sleep feature before
you begin remote shooting. The results cannot be guaranteed if
the computer goes to sleep while remote shooting.
• Close the Camera Window while remote shooting.
• Except for the shutter button, the camera’s buttons and
switches, including the zoom, cannot be manually operated
while the camera is being remotely controlled.
• The time lag between pushing the shutter button and the
release of the shutter is slightly longer for remote shooting
compared with the normal mode of operation.

Appendices
Supported File Formats
The following is a list of file formats supported by ImageBrowser.
Readable files
ImageBrowser can read the following file formats.
■ JPEG files
Most cameras use this file format. It compresses at very high
ratios, taking advantage of the characteristics of the human
eye. However, because it is an irreversible compression method
(part of the data is lost during compression), if you process and
save an image repeatedly using this method, the image may
become rougher.
The “Exif JPEG format” is a variety of JPEG file that contains
additional information, such as the shooting data.
■ RAW files
This format is a proprietary file format provided by Canon. It
allows the output of the image pixels from a digital camera
without any deterioration in the quality of the image. Some
cameras might not support this file format.
■ PICT files
This is the standard file format for Macintosh. This file format is
supported by most Macintosh software.
■ TIFF files
This is a relatively popular format. It is widely supported by nonMacintosh programs (such as Windows).
86
ImageBrowser Software User Guide
■ Windows Bitmap files
This format is standard on Windows. Most Windows programs
support it.
■ QuickTime files
This is a movie file format. The file appears as a movie mark in
the Browser Area of ImageBrowser. When you click the movie
mark or a thumbnail, QuickTime Player starts and plays the
movie.

Thumbnail Cache Dialog
When you select a folder from a peripheral, such as a CD-ROM
or CD-R, in the Explorer View Section, ImageBrowser creates a
file in a predetermined folder for the thumbnail displayed in the
Browser Area.
However, when viewing a CD-ROM or a CD-R containing a
large number of files, the number of thumbnails also increases,
resulting in less free hard disk space on your computer. In this
case, you can use this dialog to delete unnecessary thumbnails
(thumbnails for files on a CD-ROM or a CD-R that you have
already looked at and probably will not look at again).
To delete the thumbnails mentioned above, click the
appropriate disk name in this dialog. The thumbnails for that
particular disk are deleted. (The thumbnails are not actually
deleted until the next time you start ImageBrowser.)

Troubleshooting
This section describes how to troubleshoot problems.
Camera is not detected or recognized
• The “Camera not detected” message or a similar message
displayed when you attempted to download images from the
camera.
• A dialog like the one below fails to open when you connect
the camera to the computer via the USB cable and prepare it
for communication. Or, ImageBrowser will not start even
though the camera is ready for communication (Mac OS 9
only).
■ Check Your Computer
Automatic launching of ImageBrowser upon connection to the
camera via interface cable is only supported on Macintosh
computers that are equipped with a built-in USB port.
Automatic launching is not available through the computer’s
serial port, and it is not guaranteed when connecting through a
USB hub.
■ Check the Connection between the Camera and the
Computer
Confirm that the camera is correctly attached to the computer
with a USB cable. Please refer to the guide supplied with your
product for information regarding connecting.
■ Check the Camera
Confirm that the camera is on and in the correct mode to
transfer data. Because the procedures for preparing the camera
for communication differ among camera models, refer to the
documentation that accompanied your camera for more
information.
■ Check the Battery
When ImageBrowser does not start even though you have
enabled communication, or when you try to import images
from the camera and the “No camera detected.” message
appears, check the following, in that order.
100
ImageBrowser Software User Guide
You are recommended to use a household power source (AC
