Image Resolution Question

Ok.  I am using my Canon camera with a memory stick.  When I copy the images from the memory stick to my computer, they are all thumb nail pictures with low resolution.

How do I off load the image that I took in the camera?

Connect the camera or the memory stick to your computer.  After a few seconds to a minute the camera or memory stick should show up on the computer as a hard drive.  Assuming you are using a Windows computer you can use Windows Explorer to few the contents on the camera/memory stick.  

If you find the pictures and they are still low resolution then you have have the camera set to take low rez. pics.  Check to see the camera is set to the highest level of resolution.

I'm wondering if what you're copying and then seeing is a Large Icons view in Windows (7 or otherwise), for which you would need to double-click the picture in order to have it open up in a much larger size using Windows Photo Viewer (or Window Picture and Fax Viewer depending upon your operating system version).

Would you be able to right-click one of those pictures and go to Properties. Could you tell us the Size of one of these pictures?

They were not shot as high res and I can find nothing to change them and get the quality we need.  Thanks for your help.
