Digital cameras have been around for a while now and offer a genuine alternative to traditional film photography. They store pictures on computer memory cards rather than on film, meaning their images can quickly and easily be downloaded to a PC.

You can transfer your pictures from your digital camera to your computer via a direct cable connection into your USB port or by using a card reader. The latter requires buying an extra piece of hardware into which you insert the memory card from the camera so you can download images from it.

■ Note Very nearly all card readers are supported by SUSE Linux. If you find that your camera doesn't work via a direct cable connection, consider buying a card reader.

Regardless of whether you're using a digital camera or a card reader, simply attach the device to your computer using the USB cable. In the case of a card reader that's already attached, insert the memory card.

What happens next, and how you should proceed, varies depending on whether you're running the GNOME or KDE desktop.
