Steps

  1. 1
    There are two ways to import your photos.
    The first is to take out the microSD card as you can see on the left and insert it into an adapter and then place it into a USB drive that is specially designed for inserting SD Cards okay?

    You can do it that way, or you can use a USB cable and simply insert the small end into the micro USB port

    So now, we have done this and it will start to work.
    We are going to have to turn it on. Holding down the Mode button - the start button to turn on okay?

    And now, in the Macbook Air, it will automatically bring up iPhoto okay?
    It will now automatically open so you can then instantly start importing your photos. So this is the first option you can do. So we have 7 photos here of a street scene. Very nice blue car - badly parked unsurprisingly.

    We can import directly from iPhoto or the other option is as you can see on the right of the screen, the folder has appeared.

  7. 7
    We can go directly to the file itself so if we do not want to use iPhoto and we want to use the actual file itself, we can begin working on that.
    Importing it or using it as we need okay? And you can see the photos we have taken today with the GoPro Hero 3 Black edition.
