Chapter 14. Managing photos

Most USB-compatible cameras will work automatically with Fedora and require very little configuration. If your digital camera offers a choice of USB connection types, set the camera's USB setting to PTP, or point-to-point mode. Consult your camera's user manual to determine if this option is available and how to choose it. If it is not available, the default settings should be sufficient.

14.1. Connecting Your camera

To connect the camera to your Fedora system:
  1. Make sure your camera is powered off.
  2. Connect a USB cable from the camera to your computer.
  3. If your camera requires you to select a knob or dial setting before connecting it to a computer, make that selection now.
  4. Power the camera on.
When your camera powers on, Fedora will recognise the device and launch any software that you have configured to import and manage photos, for example the gThumb Image Viewer and F-Spot Photo Manager on the GNOME desktop or the digiKam photo management program on the KDE desktop.
