Then I tried swapping out her SD card for mine to load them from my camera to no avail. Next I had the brilliant idea of loading the pics from her SD card into the Wi Photos Application -- which worked great, I was able to load about thirty really good shots into the Wii. Then I realized that Nintendo hasn't provided a way to download the photos lol. I upgraded the Nintendo platform with extra SD features they now offer. Now I am able to download the entire photo module to an SD card. But once you have done that there is no way to open the program and extract the photos (or none that I have found as of yet).
Does anyone know what exactly a .BIN file is anyway? I found a few sites that offered programs to download to convert BIN files into usable files but they all came from those haxor type sites and I am very wary of downloading items from places like that as they are apt to be laden with spyware, malware, and worse. Eventually I enlisted help from my sister Yvonne when we went to Panama City a few weeks ago. I arranged a time for Beth to meet at my Mom's as Beth was loaning me a working printer so I can get rid of this broken HP dinosaur that takes up valuable real estate on my desk. She brought her camera and we took the photos off her SD card and put them on Yvonne's laptop.
Next, I used Yvonne's laptop to make a DVD disk of the pictures, I created a loverly slideshow with music to accompany about 40 wonderful photos that she took that day, she captured scenes that I hadn't and both sets together gave you a nice visual diary of the day's events. After making the DVD, I cleaned up my sister's computer as a favor, and got her comp. performing at top speed again. I also deleted the photos I had captured from Beth's SD card and took the DVD I had created home with me.
I found that my computer doesn't play DVDs....only CDs. I could play the disk I burned perfectly downstairs on the DVD player attached to my television lol but couldn't do a thing with them otherwise. I waited until I had to return to PC for a Dr's appt. and used the *recuva* program, no really, that is what it is called lol...but it worked like advertised and I was able to recapture about 10 usable pics that it salvaged from the recycle program. The picture above of May Queen Arianna, May King Dax, and Prince Wolf Aidan (he named himself *g...) and this is one of ones that she took that day that I was especially fond of.
Also, any one who had been a fan of the series of articles in Mike Howard's The Cauldron magazine by Giles Watson's entitled A Witch's Natural History you can view his many Flickr offerings, many exceptional photos with accompanying text in the form of descriptions of the items he's photographed as well as pieces of his very moving poetry.
Last but not least, this bit was shared over at the Wild Hunt.
I'll be in the fourth row, third seat across from the left ;) See you there!
