Chapter 8. Working with Pictures > Taking Pictures from a Digital Camera

Taking Pictures from a Digital Camera

The Scanner And Camera Wizard guides you through the process of taking pictures from a video camera or digital still camera. A digital video camera displays live or recorded digital video, which is higher in quality than nondigital. With the Scanner And Camera Wizard, you can capture digital snap shots or view those that you have taken already and save them in a folder on your computer, view device properties, delete pictures from your camera, or print photos. In order to use the digital camera features of Windows XP, you need to have a digital still or video camera attached and installed on your computer.

Take a Picture from a Digital Video Camera

Connect the video camera to your computer, select an option to start the Scanner And Camera Wizard or open the video camera in the Scanners And Cameras window.

Click Next, and then display the image you want.

Click the Take Picture button.

Select or clear the check boxes for the pictures you want or don't want to download, and then click Next.

Type a name, or click the list arrow to select an existing picture name.

If you want, click Browse, and then select a folder location where you want to save the pictures.

If you want, select the Delete Pictures From My Device After Copying Them check box.

Click Next, and then wait for the pictures to download.

Click the Nothing. I'm Finished Working With These Pictures option or a publishing option, and then click Next.

Click Finish.
