    daft question number 100000000

    I used to take loads of photos on film, yeah Im that old and get them printed. I loved putting them in albums and looking through them

    I just realised since I got my digital camera I havent printed any out

    Is that normal :( do you all print yours? I'm starting to feel really sad because I think I may even have lost some of mine when my computer crashed. Is there a good way to back them up :(

    Im missing my good old film camera

    I load mine onto my computer and then have my screensaver set so that they scroll, this way I get to see them all the time and they go way back so it's really nice.

    We download them to a photo website like Walgreens or Photobucket. We also save them on an external drive that hooks into our main hard drive.

    It's very easy to do, you just download ( upload - I always get confussed ) from your memory card in your camera and copy the photo's to 'My Pictures' in tour Documents tab and then go to your control panel and go to Display and then set your screen saver to 'My Pictures'

    I think that's how I did it, but maybe someone else can explain it better, if you don't get what I mean
