lens questions for a cannon g12

so I have a g12 cannon power shot camera, I've had it for quite some time now. I know my way around the camera pretty well and I am always looking for new ways to put it to good use.

here is my question, I have a group of lenses as well as lens filters that I bought on amazon last year, I have had a dickens of a time trying to use them trying to get them to work right for my camera. here is my question, does anyone know a way to use a lens on a g12 cannon camera? I have the adapter and everything but I have no idea how to use make it so that the lens is used properly.

If anyone knows let me know I would love the feed back. thanks 🙂

You are talking about the add-on or screw-on "lenses" that attach to the front of the camera's lens?  If, yes, than don't do it. IMHO, it is not just a bad idea it is a horrible idea.  The chance of the very poor quality Amazon add-on lenses damaging your G12 is not worth it.
