    Hi all, I know that I have already asked this question and it was kindly
    answered to a degree.I managed to get my pictures into photoshop by putting
    them on my hard drive first but surely I should be able to load then
    directly into photoshop via the "File Browser"? Any ideas. Your help would
    be much appreciated. ernst.

    Basically you are right in your assumption, you "should" be able to.
    Unfortunately the information about your system which you provide is the
    reason you don't now have the solution!

    Hi Ryaida, I'm not sure I understand your answer. What information is needed
    to provide an answer to my problem?
    Many thanks ernst.

    You could start with the version of Windows... If you use Windows and how
    you are attempting to 'read' the files you cannot read.

    If the memory card mounts as a volume you can access the images in the
    card directly from PS File Browser. If it does not I think you cant. -F

    My o/s is windows xp(home) with SP2..I tried getting them in via the
    File/Import command and also from the Adobe file Browser.I understand that I
    should be able to see a list of supported cameras.ernst.

    OK... Care to tell us the brand of camera too?

    Probably the mistake you are making is to try and read the camera as a
    virtual drive. Take the flash card out of the camera and plug it into a card
    reader. Then you can read the card as if it were another disk drive.

    Hi Ryaida, I did say in my first post that the Camera was a Canon G2.
    Regards. ernst.

    Hi Fixx,
    Many thanks for your answer. I think you are correct.At the
    moment I don't have a card reader but I can get my pic's into Photoshop via
    the software that came with the camera.I saw a "Quick Time" presentation off
    the Adobe site and it showed the camera being recognised in the file browser
    so I assumed I could do it as my camera was there. Thanks again. ernst.

  10. Depending on your computer OS the camera should apear as a drive on our
    computer when you connect it. But it will be a lot slower reading
    something from your camera compared to reading from your hard drive.

    Open File Browser, click on the directory you placed the files into...and no
    offence if you don't know how to do that, go and get some basic computer
    lessons before attempting to use PS.

    Thanks Travis for your answer.My camera did appear on the drive but when I
    clicked on it nothing happened. However I have now discovered how to access
    my pictures directly from the camera.I agree,it was much slower that when I
    got them from my hard drive.

    Aericeus, I think no reply would have sufficed in this instance if that is
    the best answer you can come up with. I was under the (obviously wrong)
    illusion that News groups where for friendly advice.

    Michael , Many thanks to you too.I think you misunderstood. I can get file
    directly from the hard drive but I wanted to get them directly from the
    camera which I have now done.I have been Photoshoping since version 4 so I
    do know my way around the program.
