Importing photos from digital camera for photoshop.
on Apr 23, 2005 at 2:48:01 am

Hello, I took some still photos on a Cannon GL2 and wanted to work on them in photoshop. My question is what application would you use to get the photos onto your machine. I tried dragging the files, using iPhoto, and image capture, even the software supplied with the camera. I noticed slight differences in results trying these methods. I thought the would all be the same since it's digital, but it makes sense that different software would treat the files differently. What do you do? Thank-you

I may be wrong, but software generally shouldn't really affect the results from program to program. What is really important is the file format that is used to produce the results as these can vary in quality depending on what you intend to do with them. eg. Hi-quality printing, display on the web etc.

What file formats are available to you on your camera?

The files contained in the card on the camera are .jpg.

"My question is what application would you use to get the photos onto your machine."

Did you read the user guide? see pp.59-64 "Getting images from digital cameras"


"I noticed slight differences in results trying these methods. I thought the would all be the same since it's digital,"

see p.71 "making advanced color adjustment"

I believe Image Capture adds a Color Profile while importing, iPhoto does not, that would account for the slight difference. (in color presumably)
There is an option to override this in Image Capture.
