Hi: I have a Nikon coolpix 11 digital camera and want to transfer my pictures to my computer.
My question is...can I just plug in my camera into the computer and download my pictures directly to My Pictures Library? Do I necessarily need to have a specific program to download these pictures to?

I have the Picture Project CD but they say I must install quicktime, picture project in touch updater & panorama maker. Do I need to install these?? Actually I can't find if windows 7 is even supported for picture project.

Earlier I inserted the picture project disk and ended up installing panorama maker instead of picture project.
Please help as I've been reading & reading for such a long time and getting nowhere.

So I thought that my problems would be solved and installed Picasa. Problem there is, it transfered a cozillion of my pics from my picture libraries and three quarters of them are duplicates. Now to transfer my camera pics to Picasa, what a mess there will be with ALL those duplicates. Am still trying to figure out how to eliminate all these duplicates that I already have.
Please help!! Thanks.

Picasa doesn't actually make duplicates or move any images. It just lists what you have and presents it in a format more useful than Explorer. That's all that most of these organizer programs do.
Where did these duplicates come form? Rt-click any image in Picasa and select "Locate on Disk" to see the containing folder. Chances are you duplicated entire folders and you can then select which folder(s) to delete.
