Getting pictures from the floppy disk to the computer
Create a new folder on the computer.
I recommend making a new folder callied "Untitled Pictures"
in the "Documents" folder.
Create and alias to the folder and put it on the Desktop for easy access.
Create a another folder on the Desktop and name it with
I date my folders like this: 00/12/09.
The computer will list them in chronological order.
Drag all the photos from the floppy to the "Date" folder.
Editing and manipulating the photos is faster and more
efficient from the computer than from the floppy and the originals are
left on the floppy as master back-ups in case something doesn't turn out
Here's another good reason to move the photos to the computer's hard
drive: Opening photos in GraphicConverter adds icon and preview resources
to the file so it makes each photo file larger. If the floppy disk with
the photos is full there won't be room to add the resources.
Drag the "Date" folder into the "Untitled Pictures" folder
Each time you copy from a floppy to a new dated folder
drag the the new folder to "Untitled Pictures"
