See what photos your friends have liked on Instagram

It's easy to see photos and videos you've liked on Instagram, just by going to your profile page and tapping "Posts You've Liked". But if you want to view posts that one of your followers have liked, then it's a little less intuitive.

To view photos and videos that your friends have liked, tap the News button (looks like a heart) at the bottom of the screen.

Then tap "Following" at the top of that screen.

Upload photos from a DVD to Facebook

Last week I took my family to Cabo for vacation, and we did one of those snorkeling cruises where they take all kinds of great pictures and then let you purchase the DVD of all the photos (which I did). When we returned home, I wanted to upload those pictures to my facebook page so my friends and family could see them.

It's a 2-step process. First I imported the photos from the DVD to my computer, and then I uploaded those pictures from my computer to my facebook page.

Here's how to upload photos from a DVD to Facebook

1. Import the photos from your DVD to your computer.

Insert your DVD into your computer's DVD drive and wait for the Autoplay dialog to pop up.

Choose the "Import pictures and videos" option. You can tag your photos with something that'll help you find them later, and then click "Import" to copy them from the DVD to your computer.

The pictures will be uploaded to your Pictures folder, which is "C:\Users\Rick\Pictures" on my computer.

2. Upload the photos from your computer to your Facebook page.

Now that the photos have been imported to your computer, you're ready to upload them to Facebook.

Log into your Facebook account and click "Add Photo / Video" at the top of your homepage.

Click "Create Photo Album" and then click "Select Photos to Upload".

You'll be prompted for the location of your photos that are on your computer from Step 1 above. Find them, select the ones you want to upload, and that's all there is to it!

Here's another tip: hold the Ctrl key down while selecting photos. This will let you select individual photos on your computer.

Happy uploading, and I'm sure your friends will love seeing the new photos you'll be posting :-)

Lost iPhone camera roll photos after iOS 5.0 upgrade

Question: I downloaded the iOS 5.0 software for my iPhone, and ended up loosing all my pictures on my camera roll. For some reason they didn't copy over after the upgrade and sync was finished. Did I miss a step somewhere?

Answer: Be sure you sync your iPhone before doing the iOS 5.0 upgrade, so that your camera roll photos will all be in iTunes. Then when you upgrade, they should still be on your phone or at least saved on your computer.

Photo sync settings in iTunes

Be sure you properly configure your photo syncing settings in iTunes, to make sure all of your photos are transferred to your computer when you sync your iphone!

To do this, connect your iPhone to your computer using your usb cable, select the phone in iTunes and then click the "Photos" tab.

Check the option to sync all photos (with iPhoto for the Mac in this case).

You can also transfer your camera roll photos using Window's built-in photo importer using the steps described here: http://www.rickysays.com/copy-iphone-pictures-to-windows

How to transfer pictures from a Pantech phone to my computer?

Question: I have a Pantech Impact P7000 mobile phone. I am wanting to transfer my pictures from my phone to my hp laptop. My search for a data pilot kit has not been successful. I have vista on this laptop. I have Windows photo gallery and also Kodak easy share. Can you help?

Answer: With this particular Pantech phone, you have three options for transferring pictures to your computer:

1. Send as a multimedia message
2. Transfer using Bluetooth
3. Uploading to an HP Snapfish account

To see these options, find the picture folder on your phone by selecting "Menu", then "My Stuff" and then scrolling down to "Pictures".

Open the picture you want to send. Select "Options" and then "Send", and choose from one of the 3 options.

Bluetooth requires that your computer has bluetooth capabilities, and you'll first need to pair (connect) your phone with your computer. Once paired, you'll be able to send each photo to your computer.
