Upload them to Photobucket (After you make an account) find the picture under Albums, click the picture, and near the bottom right corner there will be a bunch of links, click the lat one that says IMG Code and post it into the thread box :)

You explore the settings and experiment to see what works... Asking people on a forum that specializes on bettas about your camera that some of us may know nothing about really won't help.

I find that macro setting and good lighting is all I need! I have a fine pix s2950. ;) flash is a big help if u don't have a tank light.

Lots of practice, and different angles, and some without plants, (lots of light) preferably natural, if you can get some sunshine on the tank, that would be good, or a bright light, flash doesn't seem to do the job, I've tried, but different settings on the cam, and experiment with each:)

Take a hundred pictures, discard the 98 that didn't turn out well, profit! (And post the 2 good ones!)

Most point and clicks try to autofocus, the challenge with a betta is hoping he'll stay still long enough for the camera to focus on him and then for your finger to click the button.
