How to Transfer Pictures from Your Camera to Your Computer

After a photography session, you can upload your digital images to your personal computer for viewing and storage. Digital files can copy from the camera to your computer through an interface cable. This interface cable, usually included with the camera, connects the camera terminal with the computer’s USB port. Windows 7 will store the files in a picture folder in the Pictures Library by default.
