How do you uninstall TIFF as the default Photo Display Program in Windows XP PRO?

Jump to solution
I downloaded a program in windows xp pro for a nikon coolpix camera that I recently purchased. The program loaded on my pc, however, in the left hand margin the Picasa shows in the drop down menu, however, when I click on it i receive a square with the TIFF wording on the window screen. I do have Picasa on my pc and do not know why I am not seeing pictures in jpeg? Did I miss something when I downloaded the program to my pc?

In Picassa, there is an "import" button, located at the top left of the screen, just below "File" "Edit" and "View".  I have my camera connected to the USB and when I click on Import it opens a new screen and displays all the pictures in the camera.  It has options to select all or just some of the pictures.  It also has options to delete the pictures in the camera after import.  

If you click on the Help Contents in Picasa and then search for import, it will give you directions on how to do it.  Basically what I stated.

Tiff is a photo file type (like jpg) and not a program.  I have a Nikon S8100 but I didn't install the Nikon programs.  I just use Picassa to import pictures and then I can use the limited editing in Picassa or if I need more I have have Adobe Photoshop Elements program to do whatever I need to do to a picture.

Info on file types:

JPEG, TIFF, and RAW are photo file formats that nearly all DSLR cameras can use. Beginning cameras typically only offer JPEG file formats. Some DSLR cameras shoot in JPEG and RAW simultaneously.

JPEG uses a compression format to remove some pixels that the compression algorithm deems unimportant, thereby saving some storage space.

RAW is closest to film-quality, requiring a lot of storage space. The digital camera does not compress or process a RAW file in any way. Some people refer to RAW format as a "digital negative" because it doesn't change anything about the file when storing it.  Few beginner-level cameras allow RAW format file storage. Some professional and advanced photographers like RAW because they can perform their own editing on the digital photograph without having to worry about what elements of the photo the compression program will remove, such as with JPEG.

TIFF is a compression format that does not lose any information about the photo's data, either. TIFF files are much larger in data size than JPEG files.

Dear Fireberd, Thank you for your prompt response to my question. Can you please elaborate on the procedure you use to import pictures from your camera to Picasa. The reason for this request is that my wife would like to use the Picasa program she has been using with her older Nikon Camera on a Dell Dimension 4100 with Windows OS ME. Appreciate your feedback! Thank you
