Camera update

I’ve been slowly figuring out my digital camera. Early this week, Dad looked it over, installed batteries, set the date, and showed me how to turn it on and take a picture. Today, I figured out how to copy the picture from the camera to my computer. It would have been easier if the manufacturer’s directions mentioned you need to turn it on before you copy from it. I suppose that’s supposed to be obvious, but it’s a lot more obvious in hindsight than ahead of time. {rueful chuckle, Smile}

Anyway, I have a picture of the ribbon leis I’ve worked on recently, and another of the one I’m currently working on. I’ll share it… when I feel more like figuring out how I’ve shared photos before. There’s enough looking up of stuff I’ve forgotten involved, this it isn’t going to get done today. {Smile}

  1. It's amazing how many steps people skip when they give directions. (And no, `must be on at the time' is not obvious when you're working with certain types of electronics. I mean, there are all those that you have to turn off before you do anything with to avoid getting shocked.) Glad you got it figured out. :)

    1. Thanks. It was pretty frustrating when I couldn't get it to work. Then I found the problem, and could just imagine a chorus of "Well, of course you're suuposed to turn it on!" {rueful smile}

      Thanks. That's a good point: there are times when you don't want it on, too. That does help me feel better about this. {SMILE}
