I finished this roof, window, and siding job. Then I took some pictures. The first picture shown is exactly how it came out. Strange but cool.

Looks like two images, one transposed over the other. Maybe it’s time for a new memory card in the camera. I read somewhere that when you erase images on the cards, they don’t always go completely away…
I’m just guessing, I know nothing about these things either!!

Rather than a memory card screwup, this looks like a software problem in your digital camera.

In order to do autofocusing the software runs through an image capture and does differentiation to find edges in the photo. The sharper the edges (t.e. the larger the differential) the better the focus. That’s vastly oversimplified, but this looks like an intermediate step the camera software was performing to adjust focus automatically. It looks like an intermediate focusing calc got stored instead of the actual picture.

The real question is; can you do it again? I know photoshop has the ability to do things similar to this. Can’t remember the function at the moment, but I have never seen a camera with this built in so it’s probably a glitch.

Rex is right, Whatever program you used to view it must have had the trace feature enabled. Some new cameras and software do the same with the click of a mouse. I bet the picture is actually there still, you just gotta undo the tracing. Its normally located at the top in the alt menus under layer or picture or something close to that and uncheck it. Also in the file menu you can revert to original if it offers that, photoshop does

That is definitely an edge tracing result.

I can make similar images in Paint Shop Pro and Corel Photopaint and Draw.

Does the camera have editing features that let you alter the photo before printing? This looks like the sketch or outline feature of some cameras. of course it’s complex to it came out a bit funky.
