Hi, I'm new here. I need to take some Christmas photos of my church group and I was wondering what program should I have to take the picture and have it viewable on my laptop right away. I need to burn CD's for the families while I gain experience. I'm using Canon D20 and have Photoshop Elements 4.0 but I was wondering what program or interface, if any, anyone would recommend to make this easier. Thanks in advance!
John :D

If you are talking about connecting your laptop to your camera and viewing immediately on the laptop, then you can use the Canon software that came with your camera. If you don't have the disks, you can downloaded it from the Canon website.

Otherwise there is also a driver needed to connect your camera with a USB cable to copy your images, also on the disk or downloaded from the Canon website.

If you are just looking to copy the pictures over, I recommend a Compact Flash card reader, it's faster, doesn't require a driver, and doesn't use your camera's battery.

Ryan's point on the card reader is well put. It is fast, reliabel and your camera is not tide to anything so you can get tangled in the wire and transfer the camera to the floor (and I assure you the latter happens). They usually quite cheap. Good luck, Dennis (and welcome)

Thank you, I do have a card reader and it makes total sense! No cords!
