Chapter 5. Using Mac OS X Applications > Capturing Images with a Digital Camera

Capturing Images with a Digital Camera

Panther has provided you a way to directly access your digital camera and organize your images. Just plug in your digital camera or scanner directly, and import your pictures from any application that supports Services and Rich Text Format (most digital cameras and scanners). The Image Capture application lets you download all or selected contents from your digital camera, crop images to a variety of sizes, and even delete unwanted pictures from your camera. You can even use Image Capture to build a Web page, complete with individual thumbnails of your photos. Just click Build Web Page from the Automatic Task pop-up on the toolbar. Image Capture automatically generates the Web page and stores the images in the Pictures folder on your hard drive ().
