I just bought a new Fujifilm Finepix JX 300 series digital camera after using a Fuji point & shoot camera that took 35 mm film for 12 years (it went bad and I ditched it). So this is my first digital camera

since i'm kind of slow and impatient (despite my daily use of my home and office computers for over a decade) when it comes to plugging a camera into my computer, i want to keep going the route of having the commercial photo booth develop prints from the memory card(with the old camera they developed it from the roll of film)

the instructions don't tell you how to remove the memory card they only tell you how to put it in the camera

is this something the photo booth people can do for me(remove the memory card from the camera)?

I don't have your model but with my digital camera all I do is push down on the memory card and it pops up out of the slot.

Try it...

that's exactly what they told me at Fuji when i called them

this is all new to me, the girl at Best Buy explained to me that you give the memory card to the photo developing place so they can develop the prints...i had no idea how it worked

That's how mine worked as well.

On a side note, you'll still want to move all of the pictures off of the camera / card every now and then for two reasons. First is that you'll eventually run out of space, and second is that memory cards die.

Remember that those digital pictures are the equivalent to your negatives.

I'm not sure if this post is some sort of strange joke, but I'll take the initial question as being earnest.

You should download your pictures to your computer. Taking a digital camera to a photo lab is a bit liking rigging up a team of horses to pull your car around--it will definitely get you the result you want, but it's an old-fashioned way of using a new and much better technology. It's really as simple as plugging in a USB cable to your computer and your camera, opening the camera on your computer, and downloading the files. Alternately you can remove the memory card, typically by pushing down on it slightly to get it to pop back up.

You'll be able to see your photos right away, share them with your friends and family, and have the good ones printed in a variety of sizes, either at a local store or over the internet.

18 is the memory card slot, just press on it lightly and it will pop back out.
19 is the battery
20 is the battery latch
just above 20 is the usb port.

No reason sticking to bad habits. For example you have a camera that can store X amount of pictures. It really costs you nothing to take one and more importantly it doesn't cost you anything to take a bad picture, it only begins to cost money when you store the file on your hard drive.

As mentioned above keep what you want on your computers hard drive, review them, delete the pictures of your feet and choose the better pictures for printing.

FYI a lot of these stores offer online services, you can upload from your computer to their site and then when you get to the store they will be all ready.

If that's how he wants to do it, then who are we to say different?

My sister does this. She takes the card to Walgreens or some other place and has them "develop" (really it is just printing) the entire card. She likes it. She can afford it. And she likes having the actual pictures from her trips. Not having a bunch of pictures on her computer.
Yes most of us just put pics on our computers, but many people miss the "old days" of getting that envelope full of pictures from the developer.

Also to the OP: many drug stores (here in Ohio it is CVS or Walgreens) have the little self service kiosk. Just take your card to the kiosk, insert the card and you can browse the card and print only the pics you really want. This is probably the way to go for you.

If you want to print them go for it, my only point is there is really no reason to print pictures of your feet and again it should be emphasized the print is no replacement for the file. My mother likes the prints too but after I showed her how to get them on the computer and pick and choose what she wanted to print she realized she could now take hundreds of photos. She's using modern tech to enhance her enjoyment of taking pictures and getting some of them printed.

the photo service at Target is gone. I'm sure i'll grow to do this on the computer to. But my first roll is gonna be done at Walgreens or the like. this is a totally new thing for me because my dad bought me a Fujifilm Smart Shot point & shoot camera 12 years ago(he was a camera buff). SInce then both my folks have passed on, and the camera he got me just died, leaving me with 2 rolls of 35 mm film for a camera that is basically no longer made. I no longer have dad to show me this but still it's easy enough to use, just that i miss the old method of developing...

see where I'm coming from
