Quick Tips: Quick Tips: Customize your SD600

1:46 /

We'll show you how to change the settings--say, for your background image--in your Canon PowerShot SD600.

[ music ] ^M00:00:03 >> Millions of people have bought the Canon Powershot SD600, so how do you set yours apart? I've got a couple ways. I'm Tom Merritt from CNET.com. Here's some Quick Tips to change the start up image on your SD600. First, slide the mode switch to the playback option here. Press the menu button, then select the My Camera menu. It's the icon of a person with a camera. Here you can customize several options, most of them work the same way. I'm gonna show you how to change the start up image as an example. To change it, use this ring here as a directional control. Press up to go up, down to go down, etcetera. Go down to start up image. Now push right on the ring to move the cursor over to the right for option two. This is one you can customize. Now press the DISP button. That's the display button. It will show you one of the images stored on your camera. Scroll through them by pressing left or right on the ring. Once you find the one you want, press the func set button in the middle of the ring. Now be careful when using the ring to navigate. Don't press the middle func set button by mistake. Press right on the ring to highlight okay, then press func set again. You'll see your newly selected image in the background. If you wanna go back to the default image, press left on the ring to highlight the number one and press func set again. To have no image at all, go left until you highlight the icon with the X and then you guessed it, press func set. Once you're happy with your settings, press the menu button again to go back to normal camera operations. That's it for this Quick Tip. I'm Tom Merritt for CNET.com. ^M00:01:33 [ music ]
