Make sure you are over 5 mega pixels and over 3x zoom.

I got a sony cybershot 6 million pixels - though it is now set at 3 otherwise you can't see the pictures in full on your computer!

Its easy to use if you are not that gadgety/techy :D

I bought my camera from an internet company, but made sure it was in this country, should anything go wrong.

You don't need a printer to post photos on your computer, but a digital camera is best and it should have a usb lead with it, plus loading and possibly editing software.

I use Paintshop Pro to edit. It is especially good at dealing with red, yellow or any other colour effects which can spoil a good animal photo by making the eyes look odd. For basic use, an old version is fine and can be bought on Ebay for very little money.

To get photos on here, you need to edit them (cropping and resizing) then get them hosted on something like Photobucket, which is a free site.

Ask for help, when you are ready.
