Step 5. If you own a wireless SD card, such as one from Eye-Fi's range, you’ll be able to upload images stored on it directly to your PC or a web portal. To set up the device, insert the card into the reader that came with it and connect this to your PC. Install the supplied software, then follow the instructions to create an Eye-Fi account.
