Got new digital camera,need to find out how to upload pix & make
up files to e-mail. Laptop did not have user manual & I get no
help from salesman or ubuntu. I got as far as connecting devices
now need a kind soul to send detailed, step by step directions,
with NOTHING left out, what to do to choose pictures to make
files, and how to attach them to e-mails. I've never done any of
this, so need all the help I can get.... Thanks to all who share
Hey, I asume you what to archive all the pictures in to one file correct? First of, are you able to access pictures in your camera from your linux machine? And how are you connecting your camera to the computer? is it usb or firewire?
Mike, from your original post "what to do to choose pictures to make files, and how to attach them to e-mails." I understand the attachment part, but can you elaborate what kind of files you want to make from pictures?
I have a bunch of photos in camera memory card. I connect it to
laptop, thus uploading to it there.
How do I tell laptop, "This one, this one, this one I want to put
into a file to e-mail to X." What are the following steps, so
that I end up with a file attached to an e-mail addressed to X?
And, how do I attach the file? This is my first time trying to
do _any_ of this, so I need to know everything from scratch.
It might be easiest if you could list what YOU do - step by
step - when you want to share some of the pictures you took with
a friend in the Old Country.
Never sent an email with an attachment before either? Attaching an image is no different than attaching any other file.
I'm just trying to get an idea of where we're starting from. Do you have an email account? Do you have it set up on the computer through Evolution, Thunderbird, another mail client, or through web access? Can you send emails right now, and you just need to figure out how to attach an image? etc.
I have e-mail - yahoo classic - and have been on the net for several years. But this
is my first try at sharing pictures or anything as an attachment. We are starting from
zero experience. It would probably be simplest if you could write in complete detail
what YOU do to send a file of images by e-mail.... how to proced on completion of upload,
how to tell computer which s images you want to send, whatever else you do to end up with
your pictures in a file attached to an e-mail ready to send. Thanks for all help: I need
all I can get!
message here & message in e-mail notification do not match.
We are not dealing with a hardware problem, but a lack of
knowledge. I want to select some of my photos, make the
necessary file of them to attach to e-mail. I don't know
how, there was no user manual with the laptop [that would have been too easy]. So I need a kind soul to walk me through the
job step by step. Please, just tell me how YOU do it! I shall
be forever grateful.
Now, all I need to know is how to make up the file of
chosen pictures to attach. How do I do that? How do YOU
Hmm. Reminds me of usability testing. Generally speaking:
- Power on laptop and log in to account,
- open web browser, resize browser window so it doesn't occupy the whole screen,
- access web mail account, compose new email to recipient adding email address, subject line and body text, then minimize browser window.
- Attach digital camera, after a few seconds an icon appears on the desktop with the name of the storage device,
- double-click the icon to open the location in a file manager,
- if the images are in a subdirectory of the storage device browse all directories until found,
- double-click an image to view it.
- If suitable notice image name and path, bring browser window to foreground and use the earlier provided "how to add an attachment" instructions,
- send browser window to background, repeat viewing & attaching until done.
- Review email and send it.
*That's not how I do it but it's the simplest description of steps I could think of.
