    I want to make custom graphics in Photoshop and put them on my still camera to run them to TV using the built-in slideshow function.

    I save JPEGs of the proper pixel size, and re-use filenames (numbers) of images that came FROM the camera. (In fact, I pasted my image over a dummy photo that's still on the camera and re-saved directly there, with Photoshop's "Standard" JPEG option.)

    But the camera refuses to recognize images I make--only its own. It shows a question mark on-screen instead.

    What kinds of issues should I be researching to make this work? (It's a Pentax, FWIW.)

    Thanks for any leads!

    I had the same problem with my Sony DSC-P8, only way i could get it to work was to resave the file with preview, even then it could take a couple of attempts

    Same with my dads fuji something, they seem to be extremely fussy about the images

    Same problem with my Nikon CoolPix 990. Frustrating as I had wanted to use it this way. But it hasn't been important enough to figure out the solution. :) :( :)

    Next thing I'll try is different JPEG settings in Pshop, and including a Preview. Maybe different color profiles too.

    It's low-priority though since my iPod Photo does the task automatically--with music :)
