Tech Tip

Digital Photo Storage
Now that you have a digital camera and you are taking all kinds of pictures, you need to start organizing your photos. I suggest that you download your photos to your computer and save them in the My Documents Folder then a folder called My Pictures. If you always save them there you will know where to find them when you need them. I like to keep a backup of all my photos on CD just in case there is a problem with my computer. Always back up photos and files!

You can get a chip reader for about $10 so you do not have to plug your camera into your computer when you want to download pictures. This way you can just pull the chip out of your camera and plug it into your chip reader, then copy your pictures to your My Pictures folder.

What if you don’t have a computer? No problem. There are printers on the market that you can just put your chip into and print. One way to save your photos if you don’t have a computer is to get a Multi-Function Recorder (MFR). You can find them at

As a stand alone portable storage appliance, an MFR can transfer data stored on 10 different types of Flash media directly onto low cost high capacity DVDs or CDs with just the press of a button. An MFR can also connect directly to a TV or projector so you can view digital photos or play a DVD movie.

We just got back from a 19 day trip to Vietnam and the MFR worked great! Over 2700 photos and videos were saved with no problems! We put some of the photos on our website.

If you want to take a class on digital photos call CCSN 651-4040 and sign up for one of the classes that I teach there.
