Chapter 4: Viewing and Transferring Images
View and Manage Photos
1. Open any folder on your computer that contains photos. You can have a folder on your hard drive or on a memory card plugged into the computer.
2. Choose View from the menu bar, as shown in Figure 4-12. A number of viewing options are available in the menu that appears. The options that specifically apply to displaying photos are:
Filmstrip: This option, as shown in Figure 4-13, presents the photos in the directory as a filmstrip at the bottom of the screen with the selected photo in a window above. You can click through the slideshow using the forward and reverse buttons. You can also rotate the image using the left and right rotate button.
Thumbnails: This option, as shown in Figure 4-14, presents the images as thumbnail representations of the photos. You can easily select images to open or move from thumbnails instead of relying exclusively on filenames.
3. Manage your photos using the Picture Tasks pane. This menu, located on the left side of the folder, contains a number of file management tools. Whenever photos are contained in the folder you are viewing, the Picture Tasks pane displays (refer to Figure 4-13). The tool options are:
Get Pictures from Camera or Scanner: The Camera and Scanner Wizard opens, which assists you in scanning images or transferring images from your camera.

View and Manage Photos
View as a Slide Show: Creates a full-screen slideshow, as shown in Figure 4-15, from the images present in the open directory.
Order Prints Online: This wizard guides you through the process of ordering prints from an online printing service that advertises with Microsoft.
Print Pictures: This wizard guides you through the process of printing pictures on your printer.
Copy All Items to CD: This wizard assists you in the process of burning a CD-ROM containing the pictures in the open directory.
From an open directory containing photos, you can rename the photos, create new directories to store photos, move photos into ^yjjj other directories, move to other folders on your computer, and perform any other Windows file management function.
Find a naming convention that works for you and then use it consistently. If you don't already favor a particular convention, try this Sy// one: Enter six digits for year and month (if you're a real shutter-bug, then add two more digits for the day) and then a keyword or keywords. Separate the date and words with underscores, for example, 200311_thanksgiving. Using this convention, your photos are listed in date order when you view the filenames as a list, and the keyword can help you remember the occasion of the photos. Having your photos arranged in this way makes finding a photo easier than it is when you use the camera or scanner default naming convention. If you don't start using a consistent method for naming your images, they soon become very difficult to find.

Digitizing Existing Pictures
Scanning existing photographic prints, drawings, slides, and negatives is a popular use for digital imaging. By scanning existing digital images, you can preserve vintage photographs on CD-Rs and CD-RWs, repair and retouch your family album, and share images with friends and family without losing control of your valuable negatives or original prints. You can e-mail or post your images on a Web site, even when they were not shot with your digital camera. In order to take advantage of these opportunities to use and share your existing photos in a digital format, you need to scan them into digital images. This chapter gives you the step-by-step procedures for scanning your existing prints.
After you scan your images, you can use them in exactly the same ways that you use images snapped with your digital camera. You can use images from either source to mix and match, cut and paste, e-mail, and blog away to your heart's content.
