Title: How to download pictures from the Kodak DC-120 Digital
(1) Take the pictures
(2) Connect the camera to the Windows NT Box in Room 419. Use
the black cable that has a 9-pin serial cable at one end, and a DIN connector
at the other. Use the upper of the two serial connectors on the NT box.
(3) Start up Adobe Photoshop
(4) Select the FILE->IMPORT->TWAIN_32 menu item.
A window should pop up, labeled KODAK DC120 DIGITAL ACCESS (TWAIN AQUIRE)
(5) Turn on the camera by sliding the on/open section near the lens.
When you do this, the LED display will show a rotating pattern
indicating that it's able to transfer data.
(6) Push the button that says GET PICTURES FROM CAMERA. A pop-up
window will appear.
(7) Select the Camera Memory folder in the pop-up menu. In my
case the ALBUM 7 directory was the right one.
(8) The pictures in camera memory are listed under "FILE SELECTION"
on the left. Select the ones you want with the left mouse
button. Use shift-left-mouse to add to the list.
Then push the ADD-TO-LIST-> button.
(9) Push the OK button. A window labeled "GETTING PICTURES"
will pop up, showing you thumbnails of the different pictures.
(10) To get a picture, highlight the thumbnail, then select the TRANSFER
PICTURE button (showing a paper airplane). It will appear
in the Adobe Photoshop display. You can now operate on it, save it, etc.
(11) Repeat step 10 as many times as needed.
(12) When you are done transfering pictures, turn off the camera
(please, it EATS batteries!) and exit the TWAIN
pop-up window, using the CLOSE button.
(13) To save the picture onto disk, select the picture within
PhotoShop by clicking on it. Then use the FILE->SAVE-AS
submenu to save it. Be sure, in the file save popup, to
choose the file format you
want from the SAVE AS selection menu. I suggest .jpeg or .giff
as a format that web browsers understand best.
(14) I found the files were then put into: C:\Program Files\Adobe\Photoshop
Use Windows NT Explorer or some
other tool to transfer them onto a linux box under J: .
If you don't see a drive named J:, talk to
Duncan about getting an SMB password.
After you've done that, right click on My Computer,
select MAP NETWORK DRIVE,
select DRIVE: J:, PATH: \\antares\your-account, CONNECT
AS: your user name
Now the the pictures are on the linux box, you're on your own!
