Hi everyone,

I'm a new D90 user, so please be patient with my probably silly question! :-)

When I enter playback mode, I can get it into thumbnail view, with 4 on the screen or 9 on the screen by using the magnifying glass button with the - in the middle (has ISO above it). I can then go larger from 9 to 4 to 1 on the screen using the button with the + (with QUAL) above it.

When it gets to 1 on the screen, it has the histogram with red/green etc graph on it. I used to be able to just have the photo and no histogram, but I have clearly done something to the camera as I am now stuck with the graph and can't get rid of it. I think I must be having a blond moment becuase I can't figure out how to get rid of it when I read through the manual either.

Help! :-)

Angela.

OK...oopsy!

As soon as I posted that, I discovered how to do it and feel quite embarrased at how easy it was!

Thanks again for your patience!

Ange.

Using the four-way rocker switch: left-right vs up-down.
One moves to the next/prev picture, the other cycles through the data screens. (I don't remember which is which.)

Hi Angela,

Welcome to Nikonians!
Glad to hear you figured it out.

There is no reason to be embarrassed.
Asking questions is how we learn.
The only stupid question is the one that was never asked.
Good Luck and Enjoy your Nikons!

Best Regards,
Marty

When I think back over questions I posted a few years ago when I first got my D90 its tempting to feel embarrassed -- but its a big learning curve if this is your first DSLR and being able to ask can enhance the experience mightily.

Many of us were there not that long ago, and most (all) are happy to communicate with a new user!!

Yep! Happened to me too!(More than once.) That's a natural result of owning cameras that are smarter than we are Getting to know a new camera is a real challenge.
