Transfer photo files from a CD, DVD, email or Dropbox to your computer

Outline: How to transfer photo files from a CD, DVD, email or dropbox onto your computer. This works for portrait files, product image files, wedding picture files and more.

First, make a folder to store your pictures in. You may want to make the folder on your desktop or as a sub-folder in your "My Pictures" folder. To create the new folder, right-click on your desktop or inside your "My Pictures" folder. Scroll down to and highlight "New" and then click "Folder". The folder will be labeled "New Folder". You can change the name to whatever you like by clicking on "New Folder" once, and then when the letters turn blue, type the new name in.

CD's and DVD's

Put the CD or DVD in the CD drive of your computer. Assuming it is using a windows operating system, open 'my computer' and double click on the CD drive. You can then click and drag the photos into the new folder you have created. You can also right click on the photos and select "copy", then right click on the folder and select "paste". The computer should then automatically copy the picture into the folder.

Email Attachments

Open the email with the photo attachment. In most programs, you open the email by clicking on the message.Most email systems display photo attachments at the top or the bottom of the message, with each photo separated, representing that they are different files. Often the name of the photo file will be underneath the actual photo. Look at the very top of the email under the "To and "From" or scroll down to the bottom of the email.

Right-click on the photo file name and select "Save Image As." You may also right-click on the actual photo or, in some email programs, you can just click on a link that says "download".

Select the folder you created as the target location for the download in the window that appears. You may also want to specify a file name by typing a name in the open field. Be sure to keep the extension the same. If the file has the extension ".jpg," be sure to save the file as "FILENAME.jpg" where FILENAME is the name you gave the image.

Select "Save." Your image will be transferred from your email to your folder. If you want to do this for multiple pictures, just repeat the steps for each picture.

Dropbox Files

The easiest way to copy files from Dropbox to your computer is to sign up for their service and download their program. It is free, and they will give you your own storage space to use, and they do not spam you or pass your information to other vendors. When we send you an "invite" to "share" the folder where we have stored you photos, you will get an email from Dropbox. In the body of the email there will be a link that says, "View "[name of the folder we sent]". When you click that link you should see the option to sign up for the service and download and install the application. Follow the instructions and after you install Dropbox, you should see a little icon of a blue, open cardboard box (the Dropbox logo) on your desktop or in your shortcut bar. When you click on that icon, you should see the folder with your photos in it. Open the folder, highlight all of the photos, right click and choose "copy". Right click on the folder you created to store your photos in and click "paste". The computer should then automatically copy the pictures into your folder.

There are two other ways to get your photos from Dropbox if you don't want to install the application on your computer. When you are signed in to the Dropbox website, you will see the folder we created with your photos in it. You can right click the entire folder and then click download. Dropbox will "zip" the photo files inside the folder, which compresses them and means that you must then "unzip" them once they are downloaded. "Zipping" also causes a very tiny loss of image quality. On the website you can also open the folder and right click each photo, and then click download. This is a more cumbersome way to get your photos because you must do each photo one at a time.
