Using your PSP as a portable photo album is easy if you know how to fill the Memory Stick Duo card with images. If you know the different viewing options and controls on your PSP, you’ll be showing off your photos in no time.
One of the PSP’s most useful functions is also one of its most simple: the ability to display digital images. The majority of the hacks covered in this chapter, and a few from other chapters, hinge on this simple ability. This hack walks you through the basics of managing digital images on your Sony PSP, different ways of getting the images onto the PSP, and navigating the images once they are on your PSP, and points you to some of the more useful ways digital images can be used to add functionality to your PSP.
To place images in your PSP, you need to either mount your Memory Stick on your computer using a card reader, or connect your PSP to your computer using a USB mini to USB cable, select Settings → USB Connection from the PSP’s Home menu, and hit the X button.
Once the Memory Stick shows up on your computer, you will find a folder called PSP in the card’s root directory. Within the PSP folder are four other folders: GAMES, MUSIC, SAVEDATA, and PHOTO. You can simply copy any images that you want to carry around with you on your PSP into the PHOTO directory on the card.
