Downloading photos

Kathy's picture

I know this should be easy and basic, but I cannot for the life of me figure out how to transfer digital photos from my camera to the "My Pictures" app on my Linux Acer Aspire One.
Can anyone please guide me, in the simplest terms, as to doing this?
I can hook camera up to netbook, but nothing appears or happens.
I can insert the camera's SD card, which does show up and allows viewing photos, but I cannot download the pics to netbook so that I can erase the card.
Thanks in advance!
