Cowart's Common Room
Amy Flickr experts out there?

I've not much hair left this evening, nearly all torn out.

Spent the afternoon transferring 81 photos to Picasa and it worked!! Titivated them, nearly all of them anyway and family arrived. Went back this evening and they have disappeared. ***********!!!!!!

Just signed up to Flickr in anger and desperation and after giving them my life history to sign up I don't know how I can transfer my pics straight from the camera to Flickr - I must be dim or something but it just takes me to My Pictures and they obviously aren't there as they are on my berludy camera.

If anyone can explain in words of one syllable I would be so grateful.

Mandahill's Avatar If your camera is attached to the PC, you need to click on MyComputer. Then you should see your camera as one of the locations (it might say 'Removable disk'). Click on that and then on the folder icons until you find the files which are your photos.

Hope that works!

Westerwitch's Avatar Oh I do hope you can sort it out Cait - you need the confidence that the pictures you are downloading are safe.

My Mac has iPhoto as standard - but I bought Lightroom.

Cait's Avatar Finally found my pics on Picasa (this programme is not user-friendly since it updated to 3!) and have done all I wanted.

But thanks very much Mandahill for that simple instruction. I will carry on and have a go with Flickr as well another day.

Is Lightroom expensive WW?

Westerwitch's Avatar Here is the link Cait link

You can download a free trial for a month. It is not cheap, but I find it invaluable and highly versatile - I would not be without it. Alot of photographers both professional and hobby use it.

Crystal Jigsaw's Avatar Hi Cait, I joined Flickr the other day but haven't explored it properly yet.
