Software Described in This Instruction Manual

Using mainly the following two programs, you can import images and manage them on your computer.

z

CameraWindow/EOS Utility

Used for basic image management, such as importing images from the camera/camcorder.

• Users of cameras/camcorders other than

EOS cameras: Use CameraWindow for these operations. Also refer to the CameraWindow

User Guide (provided in PDF format).

• EOS camera users: Use EOS Utility for these operations. However, versions of EOS

Utility before 2.10 are not compatible with

ImageBrowser EX. Also refer to the EOS Utility

Instruction Manual (provided in PDF format).

z

ImageBrowser EX

• Once you import images from your camera/camcorder and close CameraWindow or EOS Utility, the main ImageBrowser EX window is displayed.

• Use ImageBrowser EX to manage images imported to your computer. With ImageBrowser

EX, you can browse, edit, and print images on your computer.

• The display will be updated automatically if you use operating system utilities or other software to move, delete, or rename folders registered in ImageBrowser EX

(or images in these folders) while ImageBrowser EX is in use. If the display is not updated automatically, click in the toolbar.

• To view which folders are registered in ImageBrowser EX, see “Configuring

Preference Settings”

Precautions

Importing Images from Memory Cards

Camera/Camcorder–Computer Connection Precautions

• When connecting the camera/camcorder to a computer via an interface cable, connect the interface cable directly to the USB port. Connection via a USB hub may prevent correct operation.

• Using other USB devices (except USB mouse devices or keyboards) when the camera/camcorder is connected may prevent correct operation. In this case, disconnect the other devices from the computer and reconnect the camera/camcorder.

• Do not connect multiple cameras or camcorders to a single computer. This may prevent correct camera/camcorder operation.

• Do not allow the computer to enter sleep (or standby) mode while a camera/camcorder is connected via an interface cable. If this does happen, leave the interface cable connected to the computer and try to wake the computer while the camera is still connected. Some computers may not recover from sleep correctly if the interface cable is disconnected while they are in sleep mode. For details on sleep or standby mode, refer to the computer user manual.

• Do not disconnect your camera/camcorder from the computer while the CameraWindow or

EOS Utility screen is displayed.

• When connecting a battery-powered camera/camcorder to the computer, make sure the device is fully charged, or use an AC adapter kit or a compact power adapter

(may be sold separately, depending on your model).

• When connecting an AA battery-powered camera/camcorder to the computer, use batteries with sufficient charge, optional fully charged AA NiMH batteries, or an optional compact power adapter.

• For connection instructions, refer to the camera/camcorder user guide .

Tagging Images: Categories

To organize images by landmarks or groups, first create the landmark or group folder, and then drag images to the folder to assign them to that category.

Note that the actual files of images registered to [Landmarks] or [Groups] folders are not moved from where they are stored on the computer. However, be careful when deleting images in

[Landmarks] or [Groups] folders, because this will also delete the image file.

1

Select [Create Landmark] or [Create

Group] and enter the name of the new folder.

2

Drag images to the folder to assign them to, and then release the mouse button.

The images are now tagged as belonging to the specified folder.

Clicking a folder will display the images assigned to that folder.

• Deleting a [Landmarks] or [Groups] folder will only delete the folder, not the images assigned to it.

• Images can be searched by categories, because the images you assign to categories are automatically tagged with that folder information.

You can also create groups by selecting images, accessing the properties window, clicking the

[Additional Info] tab, and entering the names of landmarks or groups.

Changing the Image Sort Order

You can sort images in the browser area according to your selected criterion.

In the browser control bar, click , and in the menu, select the sorting criterion.

. For this reason,

be careful when sharing these images with others, or when posting the images online where many people can view them. You can also remove personal information before

Processing to Search by Faces

Searching for images by faces may take some time if you have many images. This processing may continue even after you close ImageBrowser EX. You can see the processing status in the small window on the lower right of the screen. To stop the processing, click [Exit].

You can prevent this processing by clearing the option [Keep analyzing face info even after

Camera/Camcorder–Computer Connection Precautions

Importing Images with CameraWindow

Camera/Camcorder–Computer Connection Precautions

• When connecting the camera/camcorder to a computer via an interface cable, connect the interface cable directly to the USB port. Connection via a USB hub may prevent correct operation.

• Using other USB devices (except USB mouse devices or keyboards) when the camera/camcorder is connected may prevent correct operation. In this case, disconnect the other devices from the computer and reconnect the camera/camcorder.

• Do not connect multiple cameras or camcorders to a single computer. This may prevent correct camera/camcorder operation.

• Do not allow the computer to enter sleep (or standby) mode while a camera/camcorder is connected via an interface cable. If this does happen, leave the interface cable connected to the computer and try to wake the computer while the camera is still connected. Some computers may not recover from sleep correctly if the interface cable is disconnected while they are in sleep mode. For details on sleep or standby mode, refer to the computer user manual.

• Do not disconnect your camera/camcorder from the computer while the CameraWindow screen is displayed.

• These tasks are not supported when connected via Wi-Fi to a Mac OS computer: Editing the camera owner name, transferring identifying information, and setting up linkage with CANON iMAGE GATEWAY.

only.)

• When connecting a battery-powered camera/camcorder to the computer, make sure the device is fully charged, or use an AC adapter kit or a compact power adapter

(may be sold separately, depending on your model).

• When connecting an AA battery-powered camera/camcorder to the computer, use batteries with sufficient charge, optional fully charged AA NiMH batteries, or an optional compact power adapter.

• For connection instructions, refer to the camera/camcorder user guide.
