So today I went and got batteries for my camera, took a bunch of pics of different projects, then realized, I still dont have a cable to connect the cam to my computer, so I’m going to go get that cable, THEN, retake the pictrues in my new home, because the ones I took tonight sucked…3 more projects comming down the pipe…not nearly as nice as some of the other work on here, but I hope to improve as I go.

-- Cheers

Looking forward to it, Shawn. I found it better to use a USB adapter that accepts my photo card from the camera. And in my recently purchased computer, I made sure that they installed a port that would take my card directly.

my camera is old…built in memory. my cell phone has almost as good of a camera in it, and I could get the adapter and card for that, but I think it’ll be cheaper to just get the cable for my camera. well I’m off for a nice graveyard shift, have a great one Don, go make some sawdust

Isn’t technology wonderful—- phone cameras overtaking handheld cameras (not that a cell phone isn’t hand-held, but you know what i mean)

lol, well what can I say, it’s also very featurless, 5.0 is really all anyone needs, unless you go professional and want to blow up your pictures ect, but then you should be getting into the digital SLR mode.

Actually, Shawn, 3.2 is as good as you need to take photo’s for Internet posting. Anything larger you have to size down for sure, and you might have to do so with 3.2. So you will be able to post us progress pictures of you modified entertainment unit.

for internet posting, true Don, I actually take my images smaller and at the highest quality so that I can get more on my card, and so that I dont have to down size, BUT taht said, if you want to print and use a camera as your main cam, 5.0 is the way to go, as close to 35 mm as you can get on standard sized photo’s, at least to most eyes.

Since I bought a PC, I hardly ever make prints, I enjoy looking at them on the PC. I also also have a program called MemoriesOnTV that makes nice slide shows on DVD. Then I can watch them on my large screen TV. Or mail them as gifts.
I had all my old slides put on disc’s, because my slide projector broke. I also made a jig that I use to take images of all my old black & white negatives with my digital camera. I converted a bunch of old negatives that were my Dad’s, taken in the 1920’s
Now every picture I own is digital.
