The images from your Canon digital camera are put to your disposal in the Hardcopy-Image-Viewer, if you want.
For switching on this function, please mark about
Settings Options Explorer "Canon digital camera support".
(About Options Canon you can carry out further settings.)
For putting an image to your disposal in the Hardcopy window, please take a double-click on that image.
For transferring one or several images from your camera to your computer, please mark the wanted images and click on the marked area with the right mouse button.
After selection of "Canon Import" you can select the wanted directory on your computer, where the images should be saved.
(About Settings Options Canon you can specify the data format.)
For export you should use the JPEG-format; off course, every other format is possible too.
If you use the RAW-format with your camera, you should use the JPEG-lossless-format on your computer, which enables to you a not lossy storage with a good compression.
The camera settings are accepted as text extension to your images, the used abbreviations here Tv/Av/... certainly you know from your camera.
About Settings Options Canon you can set these text extensions yourself.)
For using these functions no additional Canon software is necessary except the Canon driver must be installed.
This Hardcopy supplementary is "as-it-is", because it is not possible for me to test each camera model.
