First Pentax K-X Pics!

Take a look at my first 3 pics. High ISO cause my apartment doesn't have much light. Is that why they look so grainy?

Used Photoshop to Crop and Adjust levels and color balance

How DO I insert these pictures correctly so you can see full size? I uploaded them to an album...

It's better to slightly over expose than to under expose. Raising the level in PP tend to bring out more noise.

It is very easy. I recommend getting a free account on a site like Flickr. When you look at a picture there, there will be a link below the pic that you can post, so we can see the pic any size you like. It also doesn't require you to download your pic to this site. For example, you will see this below your photo on Flickr:

"2. Grab the photo's URL:"

Grab that URL, then in your post here, click on the "insert image" Icon (the one with the sun above the mountain.) Past your URL there and presto!

Good stuff. congrats on the first upload and sample pics! On your next set, Set the camera on a lower ISO and put the camera on a tripod. Set the shutter to capture the image on a delay so there's no trigger shake, and you should be very happy with the image quality in ambient light like this. Other wise, get better lighting, or a faster lens Welcome to LBA

When the camera is ready to take a picture, just click the top directional button on the back of the camera with the icon that looks like a timer. (a little circle with a timer hand and a dot at the top). Screen will indicate it's in the Drive Mode screen. Use the directional button to select the Self-timer option. Choose the 2 second option.
