Camera-less

I'm without a camera for 2 weeks. DH left Monday for work as usual, bringing both my camera and my video recorder with him, which is not usual. He's traveling to DC this weekend for the 8/28 Restoring Honor Rally. He'll be back at work Monday but won't be home till next weekend. The only method of taking a picture for these 2 weeks would be my cell phone. Being extremely technologically challenged, I have no idea how to get a picture into my computer from the cell. Even my computer savvy grandson says he has no idea. He's the person I always turn to for seemingly simple things such as programming the DVD player or learning to work the new cordless phone with additional wireless handsets, intercom, 2 gazillion number speed dial, remote message retrieval, and so many other features I'll die of old age before I figure them all out. When he tells me he hasn't got a clue how to get a picture from the cell into the computer I know I'm in big trouble. Now in his defense, he doesn't have a cell phone because they don't work out here in the boonies. Since he doesn't use one he has virtually no experience with them. Ahhh, the progress of country life. So if any one knows anything about that, please, please, please impart that knowledge to me. Not that anything that crucially interesting would happen that I'd miss a once-in-a-lifetime photo, but you just never know.
Please leave a comment below. I love hearing from you.

Depends on what phone you have. My phone is us celluar and all I do is go to the pic you want to sent,
click on options,
click send in message,
click on send to,
then click on new email address. That is where I put my email in there and send it to myself. The pic is then in your emai where you can save it to your computer.
Hope that helps.

the above comment was good advice or you can use a usb cord - plug into your phone and into your computer then download just as you would if it was a thumb drive. Works great. Hope Jim has a successful trip to DC

Good Grief...I'm pretty challenged when it comes to technical stuff...that's technical, right? LOL!

So glad I followed the link to "Restoring Honor Rally"!
