Downloading Images

April 4, 2008

Below are directions for importing and downloading digital images from a digital camera, or the Internet to our Mac computers.

NOTE: If you want to use digital still images in an iMovie HD project they will be available to you automatically in the iMovie “Photos” panel if you add them to iPhoto first.

Steps for importing photos from your digital camera into iPhoto:

  1. Log in to the “Teacher” or “Admin” account
  2. Connect your camera to a Mac computer using a USB cable (will come with your camera), and turn your camera power on
  3. iPhoto will open automatically and ask you if you want to import X number of photos (you have to import them all in our current version of iPhoto)
  4. Click “Import” and wait for them to import so they are visible in your iPhoto Library

Steps for adding image from the Internet into iPhoto:

  1. Open Safari/Firefox and open iPhoto to see if your photos are already there.
  2. Open your blog ( and click on the title of the blog post with your image links in it.
  3. Click on the link to the image you want so it pops up alone in Safari/Firefox.
  4. Click on your image and drag it from Safari/Firefox on to your desktop so a little “icon” shows up.  OR (if you’re in a new version of Safari) hold down the “ctrl” button on your keyboard and click on the image, then choose “Add image to iPhoto Library, then go to step 7.
  5. Click on the icon of your image and drag it into iPhoto
  6. Once the photo is in iPhoto you can drag it’s icon from the desktop into the garbage can.
