Getting Photos from a Camera or Card Reader

If you have a digital camera attached to your computer with a cable, you can copy photos directly from the camera to a folder on your hard disk and then import them into the Organizer. Many digital cameras store taken images on a card disk, which you can remove from your camera and insert into a card reader attached or built-in to your computer. The card disk works like a removable drive. You can copy photos from the card disk to a folder on your hard disk and then import them into the Organizer. When you download photos from a camera, card reader, or mobile phone, Photoshop Elements uses the Adobe Photo Downloader (APD) dialog box. You can set options to automatically use the APD upon device connection in Camera or Card Reader preferences.
