Using Contextual Menus
When you hold down the [control] key and click the mouse
button, a menu is displayed. This is a contextual menu.
In ImageBrowser, you can access many useful functions through
contextual menus.
For example, the following contextual menu appears when you
press and hold the [control] key and click an image in the
Browser Area.
Browser Area
ImageBrowser Software User Guide
A contextual menu is, as its name implies, a menu whose
options vary according to the context. It is a collection of the
most commonly used buttons and commands that apply to a
given situation.
Contextual menus allow you to use ImageBrowser more
efficiently. When you feel comfortable with ImageBrowser, try
using the contextual menus in different situations.

Downloading Images to Your Computer (1/5)
This chapter explains a sequence of ImageBrowser basic procedures in
order, such as downloading images from the camera and printing
downloaded images. This section starts by explaining the procedures for
downloading images from the camera.
○

○
○

This section describes two methods for downloading images
shot with the camera to a computer.

• This guide assumes that all the relevant software programs
and drivers have been correctly installed on your computer. If
you have not yet installed them, read the guides for the
software supplied with your camera and install them.
○
You can use this method to download images with cameras
that support the direct transfer function.
■ Downloading Images with Computer Commands
This method uses commands entered on the computer to
download images from a memory card in a camera or in a
memory card reader. This method can be used regardless of
whether your camera supports the direct transfer function or not.
This method is explained later in the Using Computer
Commands to Download Images section.

Downloaded” method, a simple method, to download images.
Chapter 3 explains in greater detail how to select images for
downloading from a camera or memory card and how to
perform tasks such as changing the file destination.
• You can also download sound files to the computer that were
recorded using the Sound Recorder feature. The downloading
procedures are explained in Chapter 3 "Downloading Sound
Files from the Camera."
• If images shot on different dates are contained on the memory
card, the images will be grouped in folders by shooting date
when they are downloaded and the folder with the most recent
shooting date will display.

• ImageBrowser rotates images to match the camera display
orientation. However, it does not alter the image data itself. If a
rotated image is opened in a program that does not support
rotated display, it will appear in its pre-rotation state. See
“Customizing Preferences” in the Appendices for an explanation
of how to alter the image data with rotation information so it
downloads in the rotated orientation.
This concludes the settings procedure.

Supported Image Types
The following is a list of image types supported by ImageBrowser.
Readable data types
ImageBrowser can read the following image types.
■ JPEG
Most cameras use this image type. It compresses at very high
ratios, taking advantage of the characteristics of the human
eye. However, because it is an irreversible compression method
(part of the data is lost during compression), if you process and
save an image repeatedly using this method, the image may
become rougher.
Exif JPEG is an image type that adds information such as
shooting data to a JPEG image.
■ TIFF
This is a relatively popular image type. It is widely supported by
non-Macintosh programs (such as Windows).
■ Windows Bitmap
This image type comes standard with Windows. Most Windows
programs support it.
■ QuickTime/AVI
These are movies, which display as movie marks in the Browser
Area of ImageBrowser.
■ RAW
This is a proprietary image type provided by Canon. It allows
the output of the image pixels from a digital camera without
any deterioration in the quality of the image. Some cameras
might not support this image type.
■ PICT
This is the standard image type for Macintosh. This image type
is supported by most Macintosh software.

Thumbnail Cache Dialog
Processing When Rotating Dialog
When you select a folder from a peripheral, such as a CD-ROM
or CD-R, in the Explorer Panel Section, ImageBrowser creates a
file in a predetermined folder for the thumbnail displayed in the
Browser Area.
However, when viewing a CD-ROM or a CD-R containing a
large number of files, the number of thumbnails also increases,
resulting in less free hard disk space on your computer. In this
case, you can use this dialog to delete unnecessary thumbnails
(thumbnails for files on a CD-ROM or a CD-R that you have
already looked at and probably will not look at again).
ImageBrowser rotates and displays images to match how they
are displayed in the camera. However, it does not alter the
image data itself. If a rotated image is opened in a program
that does not support rotated display, it will appear in its prerotation state. You can have the image data itself rotated when
it is downloaded from the camera by changing the setting for
[Processing When Rotating].
To delete the thumbnails, click the appropriate disk name in this
dialog. The thumbnails for that particular disk are deleted. (The
thumbnails are not actually deleted until the next time you start
ImageBrowser.)
Place a check mark here to convert image data
to the vertical orientation while downloading
images shot with the camera on end.
Select a disk.

When you select an image with the longer side on the
horizontal axis, the image may be automatically rotated
90 degrees and displayed in the Print window depending
upon the print style.
This sets the rotation orientation for that process.

Troubleshooting
This section describes how to troubleshoot problems.
Camera is not detected or recognized
• The “Camera not detected” message or a similar message
displayed when you attempted to download images from the
camera.
• Camera Control Window will not open despite setting any
one of the following settings, even when the camera is
connected to the computer with the interface cable and is set
to the data transfer mode.
– Click the [File] menu in the Camera Control Window and
place a check mark beside [Start When a Camera is
Connected].
– In Image Capture’s [Preferences] menu, specify
[CameraWindow] in the [Application to open when a
camera is connected] section.
When ImageBrowser does not start even though you have
enabled communication, or when you try to import images
from the camera and the “Camera not detected” message or a
similar message appears, check the following, in that order.
■ Check Your Computer
Confirm that your computer satisfies the following conditions.
Computers not meeting these conditions are not supported.
• Macintosh computer equipped with USB ports as standard
equipment
• Mac OS X 10.2-10.3 (preinstalled)
ImageBrowser Software User Guide
■ Check the Connection between the Camera and the
Computer
Check to ensure that the camera and computer are correctly
connected by the interface cable. See your Camera User Guide
for connection methods.
■ Check the Camera
Confirm that the camera is on and in the correct mode to
transfer data. See your Camera User Guide since the methods
for setting the camera and computer to the communication
mode vary between camera models.
■ Check the Battery
You are recommended to use a household power source (AC
adapter) for the camera when connecting it to the computer. If
the camera is running on batteries, ensure they are fully
charged.
How to Get Help
ImageBrowser comes with a Help file. Use it when you want to
learn how to do an operation, or when you want to know
about the features of the application. You can access Help by
