Default Upload or Download?

So say you have a digital camera and you want to put those pictures on your computer. Are you uploading those pictures to your computer or are you downloading those pictures to your computer?

You're downloading them from the camera's memory card.

Both really. You are uploading from the memory card and downloading to your computer.

But you're looking at it from the computer's standpoint. Think of the memory card as the server. You're ultimately downloading it to your hard disk.

Lol that is a good question. Personally I take it you are downloading because like most cameras you hook the camera up via usb to the computer. You then go to My Computer > Camera and copy those photos over to the computer. You use the computer to DOWNLOAD them from the computer. unless you use the camera and give the commands and move them from the the camera using the camera not the computer. Then you would be uploading again FROM the camera.

It all depends on what you are using.
