How to Download Pictures to the Sharper Image Photo Keychain

by Kenneth Coppens

The Sharper Image is known for its innovative gadgets and electronics, such as the digital photo keychain. This small device can hold up to 60 digital images and connects to your keys like any normal keychain. Of course, you must first download digital images to the device before you can enjoy it for its intended use. Each keychain comes with a USB cord and computer software which makes for a user-friendly experience.

Insert the software installation CD in your computer's disc drive to install the Photo Viewer software for the keychain. A set of directions will pop up on the screen to guide you through the installation process. Restart your computer when prompted to do so.

Connect the keychain to the computer with the keychain's USB cord. The small end of the cord goes into the port on the keychain, while the larger end of the cord plugs into a USB outlet on the computer. The display on the keychain should say "Updating."

Open the Photo Viewer software. By default, an icon for Photo Viewer should be on the desktop. Once opened, the photos on the keychain can be seen on the right side of the window while the directory for your computer files can be seen on the left side.

Navigate the directory on the left side of the window to find the folder which contains your photos. The location of photos differs depending on how the computer is set up.

Click on the photo you wish to transfer to the keychain. The photo will appear in a box in the bottom left corner of the window where you can make minor edits. Make any desired adjustments and click the large blue arrow located next to the photo. Repeat the process for all additional photos you wish to add to the keychain.

Click the "Synchronize" button in the top right corner of the window.

Click "OK" once the photos are transferred to the keychain. The keychain can be disconnected from the computer once complete.
