Full Answer

After the user selects the import option, thumbnails of the pictures should appear. The user can select certain photos or transfer all of the photos by putting check marks on the photos.

Users also have the option of choosing a specific folder and place to save the photos on the computer. The user might sort the photos into different folders based on when they were taken or the subject of the photos. The program might also offer the option to name or tag the photos. Once finished, the user chooses to save the photos in the selected folder.

A dialogue box shows the progress of the transfer. It usually displays the percentage of photos transferred and shows each photo as it transfers.

If the computer has an SD card reader, the user can remove the SD card from the camera and insert it into the computer. The process for transferring the photos is the same, but the user doesn't need a USB cable to complete the transfer.
