Using the Uploader Utilities
Your camera comes with two uploader utility
programs that allow you to upload images, audio
recordings, and optional programs from your
computer to your camera. This chapter tells you how
to use these programs and includes an explanation of
how to capture screen shots of your computer
desktop.
Using EPSON Photo File Uploader3
This software, included on the CD-ROM shipped with
your camera, allows you to convert any JPEG or BMP
image to the EPSON Photo file format, and upload it
to a memory card. It also allows you to covert any
WAV or AIFF (for Macintosh only) audio recording to
the EPSON Photo file format and upload it to the
memory card.
You can also use this software to make and save
“screen shots” of everything displayed on the
computer screen. Use this feature to turn any of the
documents you create, for example PowerPoint
presentations, into image files that you can upload to
a memory card. Macintosh users can make screen
shots using Macintosh system software.
You can upload images in the following sizes.
640 × 480, 1600 × 1200, or 1600 × 600 pixels
