Getting pictures from your camera into your computer
- Connect the camera directly. You can import pictures by connecting the camera directly to your computer using a universal serial bus (USB) cable. With this method, your camera must be turned on, so importing pictures will use up some battery power. You'll also need to keep the cable handy if you import pictures regularly.
- Use a memory card reader. The fastest way to import pictures is to use a memory card reader. Remove the memory card from your camera, slide it into the card reader, and then plug the card reader into your computer's USB port. Many computers have built-in card readers, allowing you to slide memory cards directly into the computer.
- In the Autoplay dialog box, click Import pictures and videos using Windows. Windows will locate the pictures (and any video files) on your memory card.
- After Windows locates your pictures, you're asked if you want to create a tag (a word or a short phrase that describes the group) for the pictures you're importing. If you do, type the tag name in the Tag these pictures (optional) box. If the pictures being imported don't have any single characteristic in common, skip this step. You can always add tags to individual pictures later (see "Organizing and finding your pictures" in this article).
- Click Import.
- As Windows begins importing your pictures and video files, select the Erase after importing check box if you want to delete the pictures and videos from your memory card after importing is finished. That clears space on the card so that you can take a new batch of pictures.
- You can use a device called a scanner to convert regular photographs into digital pictures.
