The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.


Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program such as Picasa.

    Thanks - but I am wondering why suddenly the USB cord is not working to download the photos. Any ideas?

  • kakima Jan 04, 2013

    There could be a lot of reasons. A damaged cord. A damaged connector. Some program has left the USB port in an unexpected state.

Hey I would like to get text as my background pic for my pc!!!! Help


Hi tasha546..
To change the background to a picture or text you must have that picture downloaded on your computer.
If it is already downloaded on the pc then do the following to put that picture as your background.
Double left click "Start">left click Control Panel>left click Appearance and Themes>left click desktop background, in the pop open window click on "Desktop", then left click on "Browse" and locate your picture/text that you want to set as your background. When you locate and click on the picture/text you want, the left click on "Open" and it will put that picture/text as your desktop background.
If the picture/text is not downloaded to the pc, then download the picture/text to your pc and follow the above instructions.

  2. Click the picture or color that you want to use for your desktop background.

When you find the picture that you want, double-click it. It will become your desktop background.

I'm ignorantabout how to download pictures onto the inernet I need to know how to get a photo onto the screen


I see...from what I understood you want to download a picture from the internet and use it as a wallpaper on the screen of the computer ...nothing more easy ...
forst ..not all pictures from the internet can be downloaded but most do ....to make the most ..you need to open the picture into the larger size...after that right click on it to see if it has the feature for download....Usually this will apear something like :save picture as... when you do this it will ask ya to choose a location on your computer for it ...
you canalready use it as a background..but in the minute that will not find it ..the suport for the wallpaper will be no longer viable...so ...first download...than go to the location you choose for it ...than just right clkick on the picture and it will be a line that says use it as a background...or ...set as wallpaper ..this is it..
all pics into your computer can be use this way ...and you can also manage them by right click on desktop...choosing properties...and than desktop...there will be more features for desktop...but the way I described its the straight and simple one

How do I get my Kodak Easy Share Printer #7330 to print pictured from my Compaq computer?


first install the printer onto the computer, downloading the drivers or using printer disk.
If your printer is already installed on your computer and working you do not need to install it , skip this step.

Then download pictures onto computer, using USB cable.

open downloaded picture by double clicking with left mouse button.
Once you open the picture with picture viewer open file menu and chose print, or click the small printer sign.

If you use oprint preview iit may be easier for you to change printer settings to print the pictures.
