Another learning curve

On my next trip to Italy, I  hope  to take my tablet, not the heavy laptop. But, I  want to be able to post on my blog. So, I’m working out how to access photos from the camera. This is not as painless as I’d hoped.

Here is my first effort, a little Italian lesson for all of you. I’m sure all of you have worked out what the signs say. 😊

  1. Hope that learning curve smooths out for you asap, Yvonne! For well over a year now, my iPad’s been able to handle all the blogging—aided by an external keyboard and SanDisk USB wireless drive🙂 ♥❤

  5. Yvonne – all that crazy technical stuff is making me… well, want to drink! HA! Technical stuff not being my specialty! Clearly the second picture was my favorite. I think Dan and I need to plan a trip to Naples next year…hmmm… perhaps in March for this birthday? xx

  6. Very good. I think your second photograph turned out better, though. There seemed to be something missing in the first one.

  7. It isn’t really full but is it half full or half empty?

  10. Do your devices have bluetooth? That’s an easy way to transfer photos. I have a Microsoft Surface Pro 3 which I adore. It’s so light and easy to use and it has a USB port so I can plug in the camera to access photos. I don’t even use the big desktop at home any more. Mr ET has it all to himself.

  11. I know a photography studio in Venice that hooks the cameras (a canon, a nikon and a fuji) directly to the tablet (first a Samsung Galaxy, now an Asus). They use it to send the pics into the studio (using a data SIM when they don’t have WiFi available) and the elaboration of the photos is done on the PC, but I know there are simple photo editing apps for android (but haven’t tried them). The trick is getting the right cable, in this case mini-USB (camera side) to micro-USB (tablet side). When you connect them the first time it should offer to open an app.Otherwise, something like ES File Manageer for Android (free app) should also do the trick.

  12. I use an iPad, but would be interested in how you resolve this. When I want to post from the iPad I take the pictures with it. IT’s the mini, about the size of a 5 x 7 picture frame.

    • I just spoke to someone at the Samsung help desk, and still have no definitive answer. It sounds like the iPads have got a better resolutiion to this application! Oh, well.Onward and upward, I hope.

  13. Get a little card reader that is also a memory stick. Slot it in the side of your samsung and away you go.

  15. You will love Napoli. A truly great city. I used to post pieces from my tablet when in Bali last time. I don’t know about photos.

    • The more I read about it, the more I want to see it, Gerard.

      I’ll ask Google about the photos. According to Compass, learning a new skill keeps us young … hooray!

    Yvonne, I plan to do the same next time I travel to Italy. Since my last trip, last month where I travelled with laptop and tablet, I have now learned to use my tablet which I will use for travel. I still prefer to use my desk top when I am at home. Salute

  17. I bought a small laptop as trying to post from my iPad while traveling had my eyeball flying across the room at regular intervals. I’m afraid I do not have any great tips.

  18. I was given an iPad which I want to use instead of my clunky old laptop, but I’m facing similar problems – how to write on it and post blogs.

    • What size is the iPad? I don’t have a separate keypad, but Kay does, and she uses it so easily! Do a trial run and see how you do. I found it a bit cumbersome to do this post, but it wasn’t all that gruesome.

  19. I do all my posts from my IPad. Getting photos from camera to iPad is easy. There is a small device where you put your memory card in one end and the other plugs into the tablet then you click import…easy.

    • Hi, Debra. It’s pretty cool down here in NE Victoria.

      The Samsungs must be different than the iPads, I keep being told I can’t do that with mine. I thought I’d be able to plug in a card reader, but apparently not. (First world problems, eh?)

  20. I just bought a new tablet and I’m hoping to do the same as several months ago the little netbook I travel with gave up the ghost (or refused to accept Windows 10…or anything newer than XP) so I bought a fancy laptop. I love the laptop but it’s way too heavy for me to lug around. So I was channel surfing and HSN (Home Shopping Network….honest, I try to avoid it) had this deal on a 10 inch tablet with keyboard, a leopard print cover (!) and lots of extras for $139! I thought, and thought and finally hit the “buy” button. I have had a tablet (small Samsung) that recently died also so it will be a new learning curve for me also.
    Maybe Android Tablets for Dummies will be my next book purchase.
    You’ll have to visit the palace in Naples and say hello to Charles I (well, his statue anyway), my 22 great grandfather.

    If you figure it out….let me know! Do you know when the next trip is?

    • Hi, Jane! I’ll post the details when/if I work it out! I have a mini data card which fits into that slot in my tablet, and accessed the photos via Apps: My Files: documents. (But that’s on a Samsung). I haven’t had the time to see if I can edit the photos before posting. I’ll think about that tomorrow.🙂

      I plan to be in southern Italy (mainly Naples), from mid-March, for a couple of months. Secret Naples and Naples Unplugged are my bedtime reading companions these days.
