Have I mentioned lately that change is hard?
My laptop went through an update. I don’t even know for sure who was doing the updating, and I certainly don’t know what was being updated.
What I am certain of is that I didn’t request the update. It just happened.
So I’m finding, in the process of working on stuff, what has changed. Mostly, it seems, it’s in how pictures are being stored.
I was feeling pretty cocky when I figured out how to find my images. It looks different, and it’s in a different place, but they’re all there. That was a relief.
But then I went to download images I took yesterday.
WHOA. That process seems to be entirely different.
I don’t know how the images are being chosen to download and even scarier, I don’t know WHERE they are being saved.
I used to be able to choose to download only the most recent images and I could pick which folder I wanted images to go into. Now there doesn’t seem to be a choice.
Since I can’t figure out where the images will go, even if I am successful in finding the download link, button or whatnot, I stopped.
I put the card back in the camera and I will do some research before I try again.
Why do things have to be changed? Was there something wrong with the way we downloaded files before? Or is this some sort of job security for the people that design software?
Couldn’t there be some sort of warning and maybe even some instructions before they do these things?
And who is this ‘they’ that has such power anyway?
Change is hard.
(Meanwhile, enjoy some images I had already downloaded but never got around to using before today)
