Chapter 10. 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, before continuing with this tutorial. 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.

10.1. Connecting Your Camera

To properly 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.

After your camera powers on, an informational window should appear on your desktop. If you would like to continue to import photos from the camera, select the Import Photos button. If you decide you do not want to import photos, select the Ignore button. If you do not want to see this dialog each time you connect a camera, you can select the Always perform this action option in conjunction with the Import Photos or Ignore button to make one of the choices permanent.
