■ Unlike working with earlier digital cameras, getting pictures from today's cameras into the computer is a fairly easy process.

You have various ways to transfer image files from your camera to a computer or laptop—via direct connect, memory card readers, camera dock, or wireless transfer—each with its advantages and tradeoffs.

Most consumer digital cameras have a built-in USB port for transferring data into the computer via the direct connect method

Camera docks are the easiest and most convenient method for file transfer, for those models that support a dock. Memory card readers are probably the most practical means of data transfer.

Don't forget to transfer your pictures to your computer rather than leaving them on your camera or in your memory card. Otherwise, you could lose them.
