Forgive me if I missed this topic someheres on the forum. I need help figuring out how to get pictures from my camera card onto a travel blog, while using library and internet cafe computers. Can anyone help me understand how to do this? Thanks!

Hi Tish,
You will need a USB lead to fit your camara with the usual USB end for the computer. On most computers that I used I made a file called 'fotos' and used the 'wizard' that was already there todownload from my camera to the file. Disconnect camera and work from the file as normal to the 'blog' / e-mail. Don't forget to delete the file you have made before leaving the computer! It is suprising what people leave behind in the public domain :shock: Most public libraries have computers that you can use for free! Otherwise cafes have coin in the slot or pay at the desk. The phrase you need is "Quiero grabar fotos de mi camara" or something like that! I found folk extremely helpful.

P.S. There are some bits of info here :- camino-crime-watch/topic6214.html#p36995

Thanks Terry! Your explanation was very helpful and I'll dig out the cord that came with my camera.
I knew there must be a simple way to do it, but I was trying to use a card reader and it wasn't working.
