inexpensive card reader to read the camera's memory card. Windows Explorer can then copy the files from the card to the hard drive. They should come over as tifs with exif info. That's what happens under Windows XP.
I know there's plenty of photo software on this site, but I can't figure out which one(s) will do what I need it to do.
The software I want only needs to do a few simple things:
1. Transfer ALL of the photos from my digital camera to the computer at once, while saving each pic as a separate file, in the folder I choose.
2. Save the pics exactly as they come off the camera (no image quality loss). I take the pictures in .tif format, which is what I want them to save as.
3. Save the date I took the pictures it gets from the camera, rather than just the date I transfered them to the computer. Including other EXIF camera data would be good, but is not required.
I have the Imaging software that came with Windows 2000, but it won't transfer the pics all at once (unless I want to save them all into one BIG file, which I don't) and doesn't include the date. I downloaded Picassa from Google, and that downloads them all at once as separate files, but only as JPEGs, and I can't even choose the quality. It's *supposed* to transfer the date and other EXIF data, but for some reason it won't.
My camera does display the date and other information, so I don't know why it isn't transferring. Does the pics being .tif files make a difference?
My digital camera is a Canon D-10, if that helps.
Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks!
