Importing movie onto PC with Vista

I am trying to download onto my PC which has Vista photo's and Video's taken on my new Lumix FZ18K. I have Picasa 2 on my computer and I can get the Jpeg photos on OK, however I have taken a couple of test video's and they are showing on Picasa as Jpeg not Mov.

I have downloaded quicktime, however this hasn't changed a thing.

I tried on another Pc at home which has XP and under my pictures it worked as mov, any suggestions as to why my PC with Vista doesn't work??

I think you should install a software program that has the capability of opening mov file. This would become a plug-in for other programs and enable them to interpret it as mov file. or click on your movie file from camera and change its properties to be opened by a certain software that can open mov file and use it as the default program to open that file.

Cant download pics from camera


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). 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 management program such as Picasa:

I need software for the lumix fz40, so I can download videos onto my pc. Is there anywhere I can download a program today?


You don't need any special software.
The best way to download videos (and 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 videos and pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or, despite what I said first, you can use any photo/video cataloging program, such as Windows Photo Gallery, Windows Movie Maker, iPhoto, iMovie, or Picasa.

Pix were taken as RAW and need to convert to jpeg so I can download with supported program


Hi,
Please porvide us with more details whether you can copy the RAW files to your PC or not. If you can copy the files to the PC, you can easily convert them to jpeg format using Google Picasa, a free photo editing software which you can download from : http://picasa.google.com/

Hope this solves your problem. Thanks

I have a Nikon Coolpix P2 camera that I love. I used to have Picasa 2 software loaded and it automatically detected when I attached the camera to a USB port. I've accidently upgraded to Picasa 3, and that...


It's probably because Picasa 3 is not your default import program for photos. You can fix this by:

In Windows XP, your default import setting must be adjusted on a device by device basis:
* Connect the import device (your camera or card reader) to your computer.
* Double-click My Computer on your computer desktop.
* Right-click the listing of your import device.
* Select Properties.
* Click the Autoplay tab.
* Select 'Pictures' from the content drop-down menu.
* Choose from two possible actions:
* Select an action to perform: Select an application to handle import by default each time photos are detected on the specific piece of hardware.
* Prompt me each time to choose an action: Choose an import application each time you attach your hardware.
* Click Apply.
* Click OK.

Windows Vista

Windows Vista allows you to set a global import preference for all photo or videos files.
* Click Start > Control Panel.
* Select Autoplay.
* Under 'Picture' or 'Video,' select your default import program.
* Click Save.

I don't have the Photo Loader software


The Arcsoft software that comes with most, if not all, Panasoniccameras is available as a trial download on the internet. The freeversion is only available on the disk that came with the camera.However, if you are using Windows XP (or maybe even Vista) you can usea free photo edit/organizer program such as Google's Picasa. As long asyour computer recognizes the camera when connected, you can use mostany software. If this doesn't work, you can try using a usb card readerand removing the card from your camera and accessing your images thatway.

Picasa

Hope this helps.

Downloading Movies


What type of software are you using for download?

If you use Picasa to manage all of your photo albums on your PC including album management, print, sharing, editing (enhance, red eye removal etc) it will take care of the import process for both photos and videos.

Once the video has been import you can easily upload it from Picasa to Google Video, email it or post to a blog.

Use your USB cable or a Card Reader. Read your manual to insert Date on pictures. Note date will show on pic and cannot be removed.

Best idea is to downloand you pics asap and change each pic file name to embed date taken in filename, not on the pic itself.

I recomment the San Disk MobileMate SD+ miniature Card Reader for SD and MicroSD card reading. Just a little larger than a Flash Thumb Drive. Saves lugging around a USB camera cable and saves your camera power otherwise needed to power a download via a USB cable. About $15 at RadioShack, Staples, etc retail stores selling cameras.
