I've checked the user's guide but can't find any info. I've used the phone's camera but don't know how to get the pics from there to my computer. I don't think my computer has a bluetooth connection (actually I don't even understand what that is). I tried a usb cable but my photo program didn't recognize the phone as a camera. My computer prompted me to install software for the phone but I don't think it came with any?? Is this something I have to get separately? I realize there may be a very simple answer that I'm just missing so please help!!

There's very little difference in how you take a photo between digital and film cameras and simply getting out there and convincing your kids 10 thousand photos is "normal" will get you well on your way. Check out your local community education programs or your local library for easy, simple and well priced courses you can take to bring you up to speed in the world of digital. There may also be a local camera club you may want to join as these can be fun as well as informative. Digital is a lot of fun because you can adjust and manipulate photos on your computer as well as see photos right away instead of waiting for the lab.
The beauty of digital cameras is that film processing is eliminated and if you don't like the pic you simply delete it. So click away and have fun.
Depending on your camera's make it may have a program built in so when you hook up to your computer it will automatically integrate with your computer in order to download pics. Picture Manager is a nice program within Word to manipulate sizes and the like while Photoshop is a much more intense program that can be purchased and downloaded onto your computer but as a beginner you may find Photoshop overwhelming.
You've not mentioned the make and model of you camera so I cant be too specific. The best bet is to go to (Google) the camera manufacturers website, follow links for support and/or downloads entering your make and model as you go a long. You should finally get to a .pdf download for the user manual. You'll need a version of Adobe Reader (again just google it for a download) to read the file.
Another way is just to google your camera make and model followed by user guide/manual.
Usually your camera comes with a software program for processing pics on your computer. Some of them come with a SD card that can be removed from the camera and put on the computer with a sd card reader (very easy). You can try these, you may also be able to find a free software package that you may be able to download to transfer your pics from your camera (you will need a usb cable for this, cost about $10) Your user manual should have info about this too. Good luck.
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.
got to the link below and download the driver cd for the camera (choose the 401 model)
Install the driver on the computer.
After that use any image viewer software to download the pics from your camera
