Creating a Thumbnail Album

Because the album is the starting point for everything in PhotoRelay, let's create a new album now. I'll add pictures from two sources: a folder of pictures that I've already downloaded from my digital camera and an image I'll acquire directly from my scanner.

tip

To download (or, in the technospeak of imaging gurus everywhere, to acquire) a picture from a scanner or digital camera directly into PhotoRelay, both your hardware and the software it uses must support the TWAIN standard. TWAIN is my absolutely favorite computer acronym: It stands for Technology Without an Interesting Name! (Never let it be said that computer techno-types don't have a sense of humor.) Anyway, virtually all scanners and digital cameras are TWAIN-compatible these days, but you must make sure that your hardware's TWAIN drivers are correctly loaded before you can successfully acquire an image.
