Cannot send Lumix pics online from my PC

I am able to download pics from my camera onto my PC but then I am unable to access these pics for ordering photos online. I have no trouble accessing my old Canon Photos but the Lumix ones do not appear. Also, I tried to send a photo to ebay in order to sell an item and I cannot access the picture. Any help is much appreciated as this is driving me crazy!

    I downloaded my pics according to the camera's instructions and when I view them they each have a number that ends in JPEG. However, I cannot access them to send online for prints etc... (I can e-mail them one at a time) For example, I am on CVS photo to order prints and I press browse to choose photos. I see the Lumix icon as a choice but when I choose Lumix I get a whole list of unknown words and numbers (one is Phoebe...). If I then click on one of the choices then no photo appears. If I do the same procedure and choose pics from "My Pictures" (my old Canon photos) then I have no problem at all sending them anywhere. We needed to send a pic to ebay and I had to retake the photo with my old camera in order to send it! Help.

    When I am browsing for pictures and I click on "My Computer" the Lumix icon does NOT appear in there. There is no removable drive that appears in there for my camera. There is nothing suggesting anything Panasonic. I can find the Lumix icon only if I click on "Desktop"

    My problem with sending my Lumix pics online has not been solved. The last expert said that I should find a Lumix icon under "My Computer" when I browse for photos but it is not there. I did a search for Lumix in my computer and it does show up as being there. I do not know how to find the pics when browsing from another site.

    Hello, Yes when I am viewing pictures on my PC that I downloaded from my DMC TZ1 I am able to send a picture (one at a time) to an e-mail address. I use the "send an e-mail" button.

    Hi, The downloading does work, but it only gives me the option of automatic loading. I thought that I used to have an option to view the photos before downloading and choose the ones I want, but I'm not sure if it was this camera. Do I have to download all of them each time? Also, I want to mention that when I browse for pics on a site such as Kodak or CVS or ebay for printing then I do find Lumix or Photo Fun under My Computer but when I click on it the items listed do not end in JPEG anymore but most end in dll. They end in JPEG when I view them directly on Lumix. I did discover that when I am in Lumix, if I click on a photo and then click "open" it gives me the option of ordering prints online from a few different sites. It just doesn't work from other places such as ebay....

    This is what I meant on ebay- I just recently sold my first item on ebay for my son. It asks you if you want to put a photo of your item on your ad. We tried to download a photo from my computer from Lumix and we could not access it. I think it is because the photo numbers do not end in JPEG when I browse for Lumix pics. We had to retake the photo with my old Canon camera and then I was able to access it from My Pictures with no problem......When my camera is connected to my PC to download pics then I do see another drive letter, it is removable disk E: This goes away when the camera is disconnected.

In your first message you stated you could access them one at a time for sending via email. Can you still do this? If you can let me know I can advise you further.

    When you say you "downloaded from mt DMC TZ1"
    how did you download them and does the downloading still work?

    Im just trying to identify first how your cammera is functioning and if it still working in that way before I make suggestions to cure your problem!

    Im not 100% certain exactly what you mean that it doesnt work with ebay?
    If you for example wanted to order prints of pictures that are hosted on ebay that isnt what your Lumix software was designed to do. It will allow you to order prints of photos that you have taken and OWN the copyright of.

    When you'r cammera is connected and downloading pictures ok, if you click on MYCOMPUTER do you see another drive letter?

    When the cammera is connected and you see drive E: click on it and you should either see other directories or picture files. If you see other directories, click on them until you see picture files. You can then copy n paste these into your MyPictures folder.

How did you download your pics from your camera to the PC? The camera utilises JPEG photos, so there should be no compatibility issues.

    Where is this "Lumix icon" located? If you want to access your pictures, your best bet is through "My Computer", your camera should appear as a Removable Drive in there and you should be able to access them in raw JPG format.

How do i transfer saved images from the PC back to the camera? I have loaded the pics onto my laptop and for some reason the pics have gone from the memory card. Can i get them back onto the camera??

For most cameras, this is not only not possible but, even trying it can cause problems with your camera.If your pictures are being automatically deleted after downloading, it's usually because the program you use for downloading is set to do that. If you don't like that feature, you will need to go into the settings area and change it. Or, you could just download to a folder you create on your desktop. That way, your pics are still on your memory card and you can now send the pics in the folder to any program you like.

T-mobile album download

I think if you send the pics to your online t-mobile account and access it through your computer. You should be able to save it to your comp by right clicking the pic and saving it in a folder most common in your pics folder if you have a pc. Not sure for mac users.
