How to Download Lumix to iPhoto

by Maria Janelli

Digital cameras have become the camera of choice for many people. They are small enough to keep in a pocket or pocketbook, and their batteries can last for days. They can store thousands of pictures and come in many styles, colors and sizes. Many of them even come with dedicated photo software. However, if you use a Mac computer, you may prefer to use iPhoto to download your pictures to your computer and manage your collections. Although iPhoto does not support Lumix cameras, you can still download your photos using iPhoto.

Connect your camera to the computer with a USB cable and turn the camera on.
