For some months my Iknownothingaboutphotography camera (Olympus VR-310) and the laptop have been playing tricks on me. They like to pretend they won’t work together, and hide the pictures. I’ve taken to using the camera on my phone instead, but since that’s an i’mProbablyObsolete, there’s no flash. At this time of year, when the sky hardly lifts, that’s a bit of an issue.
Pictures from the phone go on to the laptop under the label of when they were taken. Easily found. Easily used. Easy peasy. Just what I need.
Pictures from the camera go on the computer, and then we have to mount a search. A search through all the picture files. All the files from we ever had a digital camera. There is no apparent logic to where they get stored. Photographs taken at Girl2’s birthday party at the weekend were found in Jan 2011, pics from an event a few weeks ago at Spurs Fan’s school were hiding in 2005.
Maybe the date is wrong somewhere in the camera?
Puts in today’s date.
The laptop imports 1256 pictures (should clear the camera…) and allocates most of them to today’s date. This may be a good thing. Perhaps I am a tech genius?
In the great search for the birthday party pics, I did find one I’d meant to show you, of the grand staircase and the do which required a posh frock. It was taken in Oct 2012, and saved in the file for Dec 2010. I’d hoped we’d find it eventually.
I must learn to embrace technology, or at least press the right buttons.
