A:

If your Mac has an SD card slot (and your camera uses an SD card slot), then you can put the card directly into the computer.

Otherwise, you may want to connect your camera with a USB cable.

Once the camera or card is physically connected, you will want to import the pictures. To do so, you will want to use a program like iPhoto (which comes as part of the iLife software package with each new Mac).

Simply launch iPhoto while the camera or card is attached, and it will offer to import your pictures.

If you don't have (or don't like) iPhoto, there is also the free "Image Capture" program which will let you import the pictures to a specific folder if you'd prefer that.

If you need more information, please don't hesitate to ask.

Q:

what is the best way to back up and save digital photos?

A:

It seems you received a video only for the information requested. I don't know if that video is in text form but I did find two other links that are text to show you how to back up your digital photos externally. I also added a third link for Sears.com so you can see the digital photo frames that are also available to hold your photos. I hope some of this information helps.

Q:

Saving Digital Photos

A:

It can be difficult at times to follow steps by just looking at a video, I also prefer reading step by step instructions.

I attached the link below for you to view while you wait on an experts response. I hope this link helps you out.

Hi Lucinda

I'm sorry but I don't know what instructions you are referring to. If you can reply with a URL or some more information I can try to track it down for you. Unfortunately many video instructions do not have a transcript to go with them, but I'll see what I can do.

If that doesn't work, maybe you can just explain what you are trying to do. In general you ought to be able to connect your camera directly to the computer via a USB cable and then import them using a program like Google's free Picasa (see the link below).

Since camera cards are fairly high capacity & inexpensive now (and pictures are so important!) I know many people who keep a copy of their pictures on the card, even after they copy them to their computers, as a backup. When the card gets full, just replace with another card.

Thanks everyone for your suggestions. Here is the link rec'd today for the video about saving digital photos. http://www.managemylife.com/mmh/articles/curated/189160?intcmp=clink I use an iMac and I do know how to get the photos from my camera's media card into iPhoto but I would like to know if there is a way to save them externally. Is an external hard drive the answer? If so, how do I determine the size I need? thanks again.

A:

Recent versions of iPhoto can accept both videos and pictures. You can save them externally, but it would probably be best to get a drive to use with TimeMachine, which will backup your entire drive.

For TimeMachine you'll want a drive at least the same size as your internal drive, preferably larger. If you want an external drive just for videos, I'd recommend a 1TB drive, as they are currently at a good price.

Thanks once again, TJ. I haven't yet learned how to use TimeMachine but I will and I think I may be about to receive a 1TB external hard drive from one of my sons for a Christmas gift. Hope so anyway.

A:

The nice thing about TimeMachine is that it's very simple. When you hook up an external drive, it will ask if you want to use it for TimeMachine. Just say yes, and it will start backing up immediately. To retrieve a file from TimeMachine, just launch the TimeMachine application. See the links below.
