Frame Numbers vs. JPEG Numbers With CF Cards

    Hi,

    I have a new Canon Digital Elph S500, which uses CF cards. In using my
    512 MB card, I have deleted many photos that were not good enough. I
    noticed that deleting a frame reduces the frame numbers by one, but does
    not reduce the JPEG number. For example, my CF card now has 52 frames,
    but JPEG numbers to 118.

    Is there any easy way to delete each JPEG number that has a frame
    deleted? In that way, the suffix of the JPEG number will be the same as
    the frame number, simplifying storage and keeping track of the photos. I
    would of course need a method that did not delete any needed photos.

    Thank you.

    Morton

  2. I have found that keeping track and storing my digital photos by their
    creation date, and not the numerical sequence, is most useful. just use what
    ZoomBrowser does automatically and you'll be satisfied.

    Bye.

    The best way to accomplish this, is to re-number the pictures as they
    are copied from your memory card to your computer.

    My freeware utility, DIM : Digital Image Mover will accomplish this for
    you.

    It can be downloaded from http://www.alanlight.com/dim/Dim.htm


    Enjoy!
