I took so many photos I rolled my camera over.
Today I entered photos and it told me I already had a photo with that # on it! Yes I do but it is from the first time around.
Then it wanted to know if it should cancel or replace the photo with the new one. I dont want to do either. I want it ALSO.
Now what do I do? Any advice? I want to keep them all in the same folder but I think I'd need to rename them all to get them to merge in.
(too many to do it that way) I may have no choice BUT to start another folder inside the first one.

My camera starts renumbering every time I unload a chip. I file them in a photo program that came with a camera for free. It files them by date. You're going to have to call the customer service for your model of camera and ask them what to do. My bet is each camera stores differently.

Havalotta-
I am terrified of spiders and you're asking me if I have a pet tarantula?! ha ha ha ha! No Way!

I lived and wored in Mexico for 4 years. The bugs in Wisconsin all look like ants in comparison to the ones I encountered in Mexcio. Don't get me wrong, I was always quick to grab the camera for those bizarre insect shots. My goodness, I consider myself to be fairly brave in the face of most bugs (except spiders). I can squash 'em with the best of 'em. However, when the bugs begin to approach the size of a small dog and they have hair of their own and small things that resemble horns.....things change. YUCK!!! I get the heebie-jeebies just looking at some of my old bug, reptile, snake, and creepy crawly photos (all of which were taken INSIDE my house BTW.)

Back in Wisconsin, I can appreciate "normal" size bugs and the benefits of some of them better because they don't have hair & horns.

I'll have to go back to the camera store and see if he knows what to do with my # problem.

Boo Boo I had thought the spider was in Wisconsin as your avatar portrays...........

I'm sure glad your hairy bears weren't horny.
We would have missed your beautiful photos of them..............

Cracking up laughing here! You are too funny!

I'm thrilled not to have tarantulas where I live now! Although I'm hoping to overcome my aversion to little spiders by perhaps photographing their webs. I find the spider web photos akin to amazing art made by nature!

I will follow TheLorax's hi-tech tip for photographing beautiful spider webs:

The trick is to take many photos and hope one of them turns out.

My hi-tech secret to taking some good photos works for me. I can't see through the lens and I can't see the viewer. I can see the photos on the computer screen. That is when I know if I have a good photo or a bad photo. I feel silly admitting that I point the camera in the direction of what I want to photograph and press the button.

You may have to take twenty photos to get one good photo using this hi-tech method. Keep the photo you like then delete all the others.

spider

A double web. One built above the other. You can see the connecting strands between the two.

I saw quite a few made this way. I wonder if this is the way this variety of spider always builds them.
Never noticed webs that way before but I really wasn't looking for them either......
