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.

When I try to download most recent pictures I am forced to download all that are on camera


It depends on what software you are using to transfer photos from the camera to your computer.
If you install and use the "Camera Window" transfer software Canon included with the camera, you will see you have three modes to choose from, including the option to transfer just the photos on your camera that have not yet been transferred.

Connect the camera with a USB cable to your computer.
Power up the camera.
The computer will detect the camera, and open a dialog box offering you a choice of programs on your computer that can handle photo transfers.

If you choose the Camera Window software, it will open and present a menu with three choices of action. The first option is, "Import images from Camera." Select this.

Another submenu opens presenting these three options:

1. Import Untransferred images. (this is what you said you want)
2. Select images to Import. (manually select just certain ones)
3. Import All images (automatically transfers every image on the card)

Camera Window is just one of many available image transfer applications you could use. They all do essentially the same three things outlined above, including "Import Untransferred images."

Canon included a couple other utility programs on the CD that came with your Powershot A490 camera. One of them, "Zoom Broswer EX" enables you to reload photos from your computer, back on to your camera's image card, if you want to do that.

Need image imager software to download


You don't need any special software.

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, despite what I said first, you can use any photo cataloging program such as Picasa ( http://picasa.google.com ).

How to trasfer pictures from camera D60 Nikon to my lap top


Using the Camera

* 1 Attach the USB cable to the camera. Open the small, rubber door on the side of the camera body and plug the corresponding end of the USB cable into the slot on the camera.

* 2 Plug the USB end of the cable into the computer. Make sure the cable is securely attached to both the camera and the computer.

* 3 Turn the camera on. This will open software to download your images. You will be able to move the images from the camera to the computer and choose whether to remove the images from the card.

* 4 Select the option to download or transfer images. This will depend on what type of operating system you are running and may vary if you are running third-party image processing software, such as software that came with your camera.


Using a Card Reader

* 1 Turn the camera off and remove the memory card carefully.
* 2 Insert the card securely into the card reader slot.
* 3 If necessary, turn on the card reader. This will open the software to remove images from the card and place them onto your computer.
* 4 Select the option to download or transfer your images.

Canon SD600 digital elph


Immediate solution is to buy a card reader and use it to download all images via your USB port. I suggest using Picasa3 (free software from Google) for the downloading and organization of your images, but other software works as well. Direct camera to computer download have been a longstanding problem as computers change (e.g. vista) and camera software doesn't.

I have a cannon EOS 400D and i am trying to download images on to my laptop. i have the the camera plug in to the usb socket and the camera is on play back and turned on


Hey ikpoole,
What you need to do to transfer your images to your computer is first make sure you have installed the software that came with the camera on your computer. Make sure the camera is off and connect your camera to the computer using the USB cord that came with the camera. Turn the camera on and your computer should detect the camera and ask you what program you want to use to download your images, and select the EOS Utility. Your images should now download to your computer. Another way to download your images would be to use a card reader that supports your type of memory card and plugs directly into a USB port. I hope this helps!

Sincerely,
Allan
Go Ahead. Use Us.

Download from computer to the camera


you can load images onto a card via a card reader, but not directly to the camera. Also images that have been through an editing process in the computer will have been altered so as to be unreadable in the camera- if you were thinking of using the camera to view via a TV for example

Downloading Images


Downloading images from a digital camera can be very easy if you keep these basic steps in mind. After loading the PhotoMax software on your computer: 1. Make sure that both the camera and computer are turned off. 2. Confirm that the camera has adequate power (using the AC adapter is recommended; otherwise, make sure that there are fresh batteries in the camera). 3. Plug the serial cable that came with your camera into the serial output of the camera. 4. Plug the wide end of the serial cable into the COM port (serial connection) of the computer. 5. Turn the camera on and start the computer. 6. Launch the PhotoMax software (double-click the icon) from the desktop. 7. Click on Get Photo. 8. Click on Album or Camera. 9. Select Twain device from the Acquire From box and click OK. 10. Select your camera from the Select Source box. 11. Click the Acquire icon: (Thumbnails will be displayed). 12. Select images you wish to save from the thumbnails and click on Get Photos. Your images will now be saved to the album you choose.

How do I view and/or download the pictures taken with my digital camera my computer?


Once you have properly connected your camera to your computer (see FAQ #2 listed above), your computer will see your camera (connected and powered on) as a disk drive - most likely listed as "removable disk." Now that you know where to look to find the images, they can be viewed and/or downloaded in a variety of programs. Please visit our Learning Studio for specific step-by-step instructions (complete with examples and visuals) for further assistance in viewing/downloading images.
