How do I Get Pictures from My Camera to My Computer

Digital cameras are one of the most commonly used electronic gadgets nowadays. The camera gives us a lot of flexibility not only while taking pictures, but also for viewing them and further passing it onto others. The photos taken with help of digital camera can be transferred to computer and forwarded through e-mail. This convenience was not in old cameras. The digital photos are soft copies which means on screen and not on paper. This makes it possible for us to transfer the pictures from camera on to a computer. The process of this transfer is the only hitch people have while using digital cameras. This problem comes for people who are not use to use computers. There are several ways of transferring a picture from camera to computer.

Steps to follow for importing the videos and pictures to computer:

1.          Take your camera and connect it with your computer using the camera’s USB port.

2.          Now finally turn on your digital Camera.

3.          Click the Import pictures and videos using Windows option appearing in the AutoPlay box.

4.          An alternate option: You can easily tag the pictures using the Tag these pictures option box. (Usually, by default this folder name also includes in it the date that the videos and the pictures were imported into your computer.)

5.          Now Click Import. This will open a new window that will show the imported data.

6.          Once you done this correctly the transfer will take few minutes depending on the computer speed.

7.          Once transfer is complete you can access them by going to the file where you have stored them

This process is applicable to all latest computers and cameras. If your computer is not supporting this process try alternate method

The four steps will be the same as previous one

1.      You will see an option of “Open file” click on that.

2.      This will open another window displaying all the pictures.

3.      Select the pictures you want to transfer press right click of mouse

4.      Select option “copy” or “cut” depending upon you want to keep them in the camera or no.

5.      Once you selected and copied pictures, open or create folder where you want to store the photos.

6.      Once in the right folder press right click again on mouse and select option “paste”.

7.      This will paste all the pictures in the respective folder.

These were the two basic ways of transferring pictures. There are several other ways like, inserting memory card of the camera in computer and then following the steps 1 to 7 from the above mentioned method. Wireless transfer is also a possibility which can be through Bluetooth, infrared, etc. the problem with the latter two ways of transfer is that your camera and computer should have the required features to follow the activities during transfer. For memory card transfer method the computer should have an inbuilt card reader or an external device which can be commented and used as the same. The wireless one needs those facilities in both computer and camera.

Will Samsung Galaxy S Stand Up to iPhone

Samsung has its eyes set on beating the iPhone. No wonder though, every company seems to have a smartphone in store bent on taking Apple’s best seller head on. With a much larger screen to boast of, Samsung Galaxy S takes a step into the arena of smartphones.


  • Android 2.1 OS
  • 1GHz Cortex A8 “Hummingbird” CPU
  • 4″ Super-AMOLED display at 800×480
  • 5 Mega-Pixel rear-facing camera (without flash)
  • VGA front-facing camera
  • 720p video recording
  • 8GB / 16GB on-board storage with MicroSD expansion
  • 512MB RAM
  • Bluetooth 3.0
  • Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n
  • Wireless Tethering support
  • 2.5G (GSM/ GPRS/ EDGE)
  • 3G (HSDPA 7.2Mbps, HSUPA 5.76Mbps)
  • A-GPS
  • Digital Compass
  • Accelerometer
  • Proximity Sensor
  • Light sensor
  • FM Radio
  • TV Remote Controller
  • Social Hub integrated social networking


Already one of the most anticipated Android phones to hit the streets, what really stands out in Samsung Galaxy S is its 4-inch Super AMOLED screen. It actually looks like an iPhone, only this time, Samsung has showcased the display screen with a chrome bezel frame. The curved back gives it a comfortable feel in the palm of your hands despite its size. It is also only a millimeter thicker than the iPhone.

Its 122.4 x 64.2 x 9.9mm frame can feel a bit delicate and there’s bound to be some creaking here and there with its very obvious plastic casing. However, the 119 grams feels sturdy enough to withstand the pressures of constant use.


The 1 GHz processor takes full advantage of the Android 2.1 that comes pre-installed with Galaxy S. Multi-tasking becomes a breeze because running multiple programs in the background will not bog down the system. iPhone enthusiasts have to jailbreak their phones first before they can even utter the word “multi-tasking” and even with that, only to some extent.

Samsung preferred its own skin to the default Android one. Dubbed as TouchWiz 3.0, this skin was a product of Samsung’s tinkering with their smartphone line. It offers customizable widgets and icons for its homescreen. Although the effort is there, Samsung’s lack of widgets and Android’s limited repertoire puts the damper on full customization.

Perhaps what gives the Galaxy S a bump into the forefront of ideal Android phone is its multimedia flexibility. The larger screen allows playback for full definition videos including support for Xvid and DivX. In fact its 5-megapixel rear camera also allows for 720p video recording for home movies. Music playback also renders rather well. You can even manipulate your music player even while using any other application. The menu shortcut sits on top of the screen, all you have to do is drag it down to access the controls. Its built-in accelerometer allows you to shift from portrait to landscape mode.

Onboard storage capacity gets a whopping 8GB, or, if you have the extra dinero, 16 GB. That in itself is enough to store your media, phone contacts and a variety of files you want. But if you’re the type who smirks at the thought of just 16GB storage space, lower your eyebrows because you can actually upgrade it with its installed MicroSD expansion slot. Top that Apple!

The web browsing experience is quite promising bordering on excellent. Loading pages, in both 3G and WiFi connections, is fast. However, the text will not automatically fit the screen if you use the pinch and zoom function. You have to tap the screen after this to watch it re-adjust itself. Flash video support is not present on this version of Android. But with Adobe’s release of support for Android 2.1, Froyo, this seems to be a trivial matter.

The Contacts options are not that impressive. For one thing it lacks integrating Facebook and Twitter syncing to your contacts. Syncing your social networking sites with your phone takes a bit of tinkering on a separate phone profile option. Another thing that might bug you is its half-baked idea of SIM card details imports. Yes you can import your contacts from your SIM card to your phone. But no you can’t delete them from your SIM? You will end up with redundant contact info sitting in your phone. Perhaps to make up for this, Galaxy S can group, favorite your contacts and display their details for you. Still, this little flaw might become a pet peeve in the future if no updates fix it.

Of course all this would be rendered useless if Samsung Galaxy S doesn’t present itself passable in its phone features. Thankfully, it does more than pass. Email messaging doesn’t warrant any complicated set up steps. All you have to do is enter the right details—username, password, email server—and you’re good to go. IM through Google talk, SMS, MMS is also there for you to manage. Samsung’s utilizing of Swype, allows you to glide your fingers on the on-screen keyboard to connect letters and create words. The dictionary is not that accurate, but, heck in text speak who needs a dictionary anyway. What would be more amusing is if someone created a dictionary for texts shortcuts instead.

These killer features wouldn’t amount for anything if you would need to run to the nearest outlet frequently to charge your phone. Thankfully, it comes with a 1500 mAh—one of the largest battery available in the market.

Just say it, even though the thought of owning an  iPhone still makes you wet your bed at night, contender after contender of smartphones are invading the market. Samsung Galaxy S is an Android phone already in its way to greatness.

How To Delete Pictures from a Hard Drive?

Photographs are essential parts of our lives. We all want to keep photographic memories of important and intimate moments that we treasure. Occasions such as a baby’s first step, first date, prom night, weddings, anniversaries and other occasions are times when we want to take out our camera. Modern devices have made taking pictures quite easy and sometimes we may find out that we have accumulated a lot of pictures on how computer’s hard drive or mobile phone.

A number of reasons however may call for you to delete or permanently remove all or some pictures from your hard drive. For one, pictures eats up a large portion of your computer’s memory and reducing or deleting them will help improve performance speed. If you ever have the need to delete pictures from your hard drive, here are the steps to follow.

Step one

For most computers, pictures stored in the computer can be found in the My Pictures folder. This is usually the default folder where pictures are stored after being uploaded from a digital camera or mobile device. The first step would thus be to access this folder by clicking “Start” from the desktop, then “My Documents” and finally “My Pictures”.

Step Two

To delete pictures individually, you simply have to right click on each picture and click “Delete” or press the Delete key on the keyboard. To delete 2 or more pictures at a time, simply press and hold down CTRL (control) key and then click on all the pictures to be deleted. Each picture file clicked upon will be highlighted and these are the ones that would be deleted. Clicking on any individual highlighted file will un-highlight it and remove it from the list of pictures to be deleted.

Step Three

After selecting the pictures to be deleted, simply right click on any highlighted files and the click Delete or press the Delete key on the keyboard. All the pictures you deleted are transferred to another folder, the “Recycle Bin”. These files have thus only been deleted from the My Pictures folder, but are still on your hard drive and would still eat up memory space. To permanently delete the pictures from your hard drive you need to empty your Recycle Bin. To clear out the folder, click on the Recycle Bin and select Empty Recycle Bin. Take note that emptying the recycle bin permanently deletes the picture files and so the action cannot be undone.

It is sometimes hard to delete pictures and lose recorded memories even though that would mean faster computer speed. To solve this problem, you can simply back up your pictures to a flash drive or an external hard drive before permanently deleting them from your hard drive. This way you can enjoy better computer speed and performance and still be able to retrieve your pictures when you need them.

How to Replace the Camera in a Dell XPS M1210

Computers are extremely important, especially today since a lot of the activities of our lives largely depend on them. In fact, many of today’s youth even use the computer in order to communicate with their friends and loved ones face to face. Perhaps this is the main reason why most of today’s laptops and cameras have built-in cameras.

An example of a highly saleable laptop with a built-in camera is the Dell XPS M1210. Now, if this camera suddenly malfunctions, then, of course, you would have to do everything in your power just to get it back to working mode.

  1. You need to shut down your computer at first. Simply disconnect the laptop to its power cable and take off all of the peripheral components from the system, such as the mouse, any connected USB flash drives or the earphones or headphones.
  2. The display hinge cover also needs to be taken off. Just insert a screwdriver with a flat head right into the notch on the hinge cover’s right side, and use this tool to pry it up. Once the cover has been lifted off of the computer, gently pull it up, coming from right to left.
  3. Extract the three screws that work by securing the top of the keyboard to the computer itself.
  4. You can try lifting the keyboard so that you can see the huge ribbon cable that connects it to the entire system. Get rid of this cable and separate the keyboard from the computer’s body.
  5. You then turn the computer over and try to find the compartment allocated for the communications card. It is in a shape of a square that is usually found on the right side of the base of today’s computers.
  6. Take the screw off of the compartment’s cover and then fully remove the cover.
  7. Disconnect the antenna cables from the card itself.
  8. Extract the screws that you can find on the left and right corners of the computer’s base where the battery is located. There are actually four screws, and they are all labeled with a letter D.
  9. Open the display and disconnect the cable from its connector. The connector can be found just right underneath the display. To disconnect it, you just have to lift the entire display assembly off of your computer’s system.
  10. There are four buffers that are generally made up of rubber. You need to remove these buffers, which are usually found surrounding the face of the display. Extract the screws that can be found under them.
  11. After you do this, remove the face of the display. You can start doing so at the middle of the display’s bottom. Just lift it up and pull it down, with most of your force centered on the inside edge. Doing so will disengage it from the tabs that have been purposely installed in their positions to secure it in its spot. The same thing should be done to each of the display face’s side for you to be able to completely get rid of it.
  12. Disconnect the cable of the camera from its connector, which is usually found on the left side of the display face. Afterwards, extract the four screws you find, including the ground screw that is adjacent to the display cable.
  13. Also, you must disconnect the cable of the speaker from its connector, which is also found right beside the cable of the display face. Once you have finally removed the two screws on each of the display’s sides, remove the bracket that is made of metal.
  14. Remove the display face from its back cover. The two display cables, the top and the bottom, need to be disconnected from each other. When you do so, the display will finally and completely be disconnected from the computer’s back cover.
  15. With regards to the camera, extract the two screws that work by securing the camera to the back cover. You can do so by removing the tape that holds its cable down. Once the cable has been removed, take the camera off of the back cover.

These are the things you have to do in order to replace the broken camera of your Dell XPS M1210. The steps will make installing your replacement camera much easier for you. In no time at all, you can get your computer, and your camera, back to working condition.

How Digital Cameras Work

Do you remember the limitations one faced using the old film faced cameras, where in one had a limit of clicking standard 32 images, which could be done only after rolling the camera reel, back to the original state after a photo was clicked. A photographer at an even had to carry dozens of camera rolls with him at an event, and the rate of capturing was also slow.

But with the advent in the technology digital cameras were created which instead of using photo sensitive chemical known as film, used charge coupled device (CCD), an electronics instrument that creates a pixel map based on the electric charge generated when photons slam into a sensitive material. This was the Photo Electric Effect, invented by Albert Einstein and was now utilized in advancing a new league of cameras.

This is how it works:

• In the digital cameras, there are a number of image sensors on the array, which are placed across the microchip of the camera. Every image sensor is a charged-couple device (CCD) converting light into electric charges. In it silicon chips are used fundamentally to measure the light. The charges that are created are stored as analog data that are then converted to digital via a device called an analog to digital converter.

• The chip also contains very small light-sensitive diodes which are in a collective. They are called photosites or pixels. They convert light into electrical charges called electrons. These pixels are light sensitive, so when brighter light strikes them, it produces a greater build up of electrical charges. Thousand such array receptors create one pixel, and every pixel corresponds to some information stored.

• The light enters the digital camera via the lens, same as it is in the conventional analog camera. When this light hits the disc the shutter opens and thereby illuminates every pixel, however with various intensities. Each pixel is combined after the computing on the microchip where the stored information is gathered and an image is created. This created image is transferred to memory cards of the Digital Cameras. The memory cards can be of varied memories ranging from 512 Mega Bytes to unprecedented limit of 16 Giga Bytes.

• A cameras resolution is rated in mega pixels, which are in turn the pixels of data gathered by the lens on the microchip. More the number of pixels more are the resolution. With the increase the mega pixel number the price of the camera also ascends vertically. But you don’t need to worry as cameras of good resolution come in economical range and are viable for good prints. The digital cameras have allowed the users to no need to go and get each roll published and then creating an album which utilizes space and get affected by natural conditions too. Now they are in digital formats and stored on your hard disk or even uploaded on internet.

The digital cameras with increased memory life and increased memory have increased the range of its usage, and made it more viable and economical for a common man to buy it and use it efficiently.
