Hi again Rachael,

If you are taking your USB cable with you I’d also take your camera software (the CD you had when you bought your camera) with you too. You won’t need either of these if you take your memory card to a photographic shop, only if you find a ‘friendly’ internet café or a friend with a PC.

Once your pictures are on a CD….
Stick your CD with your pictures on into the CD drive on the computer, then….
Double click "My Computer" on the Desktop, then….
Double click on (D: ) - picture of CD on icon, then….
Keep clicking on folders (if there’s several) and you’ll find your pics!

You don’t have to load the pictures from your CD onto the computer. You can upload your pictures directly from your CD onto travellerspoint photo gallery (or email attachment or whatever) when browsing.
Click "Browse", find "Desktop" and double click on it, then….
Double click on "My Computer" and so on as above, ‘til you find your pics.

Hope this isn’t to complicated, but follow it ‘step by step’ and you’ll be a winner!!! ..... I hope!

Have fun and enjoy your trip! I'll keep a look out for your pics....

All the best, Roger

Found the info provided by all. Cheers.
We are going on our RTW next year and yes, will have a digital camera. So can I guess pretty much from people's responses, it should be as simple as:-

1. Get photos transferred from Camera onto a CD (wherever will do it).
2. Get to internet cafe and using online software/programme, send out e mail with photos album attached.
3. Thus reading photos from CD for the attachment/photo album.

Just a couple of questions. How easy was it to find a place to transfer photos onto CD from memory card in:
• Fiji
• Rarotonga
• New Zealand
• Malaysia/Thailand
• India

Second question, is can anyone recommend a suitable site for the posting of photos. I have had a quick look at but this seems to be asking me to download some software.
Thats fine on my pc here, but what about when we are in New Zealand (etc). Will I have to download the software for every different pc I wanna mail photos from?

Uploading Pix Whilst Travelling

Hi Rach,

Buy a flash disk (a portable memory disk of say, 128MB), OR if you have an MP3 player, you could store your photo's on it. The flash disk or MP3 could be connected to the internet cafe computer and the photo's could be uploaded direct from the disk.

Otherwise, you should be able to run a jack lead straight from your digital camera to the internet cafe computer. Put them in a folder such as "MY PICTURES" on the computer, and then upload to the Travellerspoint site.

Good luck !!! :)

When I with my wife were in Turkey this Summer, that's what we did:
we've got camera with the standard USB cable, that can be used in Windows 2000 and Windows XP without any special drivers. Then you don't have to worry about storage space a lot. Then you have too choices:

1) Go to the local photo-kiosk and save your photos to the CD. It's fast, but relatively expensive and kiosk owner can see your photos :)

2) Go to the local internet cafe (they are quite cheap in Turkey - around $3-$5 per hour), process your photos with some simple online photo editor and upload them directly to your web Album. E.g. my wife's Yahoo Photos :)

Except Rarotonga (which I am unaware), everywher else you will get cyber cafe and will be able to upload your photos directly to the net.
The best way to upload your photos from your digicam is through a memory card. For that you should carry a multi card reader (very cheap $10-20) and the supplied USB 2.0 cable. Just push the memory card into the reader and connect the card reader to the computer via USB cable. Its that simple.
The card reader is just little bigger than a credit card. so carrying is not a problem. It dosen't require any driver.It is also reverse compliant with USB 1.0 though USB 2.0 is much faster.
I think it solves your problem.

for uploading photos to the net, I think Yahoo photos is quite simple and offers unlimited space.

IF you want good photos use "Sony DSC-W1". IT backs up onto computers easily. Just take the USB cable with you and it'll connect easily to the pc and you can back it up that . See my photos - they came out fine - -snip-

Let me know what you think.
