RE: pictures

You need a way of connecting your camera to your laptop. Usually this is a USB lead. You may also need some software to enable you to copy the pictures over, it depends on the make of camera. Did you get a CD with the camera?

At the simplest level, just connect up the camera and PC, and look in "My Computer" you may find the camera shows up as an external disk drive.

RE: pictures

It is also possible that your laptop has a built-in reader for the memory card inside your laptop (this was a common option a few years ago, found less often now). If so you can take the memory card from inside your laptop and plug it into your reader. The card/reader will show up inside (My) Computer as an external disk drive.
