Post Process Your Images In Camera With The Pentax K-50: Pentax K-50 White Large (8)

There are several post-processing options available in-camera on the Pentax K-50. These should make it easier to manage your images, enabling you to edit them to a certain extent on the go. 

To access the post processing image options, press the play button to view images you've taken. Then, find the photo you wish to edit and press the down key on the D-pad (the one marked WB). You will then be presented with the following options:

Image Rotation - You can rotate any image you've taken 90 degrees clockwise or anti-clockwise. This is useful when you're looking at images on TV and other devices with the camera. 

Digital Filter - Apply creative filters to images you've taken. Available filters include monochrome, toy camera, retro, high contrast, shading, invert colour, posterization and lots more. 

Resize - You can change the resolution of captured images. You can change the size of images from 16 megapixels to 12, 8, 5, 2 and 0.3 megapixel sizes. 

Cropping - You can crop your images using the D-pad or the scroll wheel until you're happy, then hit ok. 

Index - Create an index image of several photos, like what you get when you receive image prints. It's one images with lots of smaller images on it and the K-50 enables you to create this easily in-camera. 

Protect - This feature allows you to make the image immune to deletion. If you want to preserve an image, use this feature. Even if you opt to delete all, the protect function will save the image. Only by formatting the camera or card will the image be deleted. 

DPOF - You can create print instructions in camera for the image, for both printers and print stores. You can specify the images and number of prints, too. 

Slideshow - View all the images currently on the camera with a slide show.

Save as Manual WB - This function allows you to adjust the manual white balance based on the colour balance of the captured image, so you can capture more images with the same colour balance.

Save Cross Processing - This will save your cross processing settings as favourites.

RAW Development - You can convert RAW image files to JPEG image files in camera. 

Movie Edit - This will divide a movie or extract a segment from it, if you're viewing a film in play mode.

Eye-Fi Image Transfer - This function allows you to transfer selected images from the Eye-Fi card to your computer or tablet, if you're using an Eye-Fi card.
