Hi DottieNH,

Thank you for posting.


If you're using the Apple Apps, included with your Mac OS, you may transfer images using iPhoto or the Photos App, depending on the version of operating system you have on your computer.


You may also use the Canon CameraWindow. You may access this software by clicking here. Once on our site, scroll down to "PowerShot SX130 IS" (just under a couple of photos of the camera), then click on "Drivers & Downloads.


Next, click on the [Select] button to the right of "CameraWindow DC 8.10.9a for Mac OS X", then click on the red "" link for installation instructions. To begine the download, click on the red [Download] button


You may also download and install "ImageBrowser EX for Mac OS X". If you're using Mac El Capitan or Mac Sierra, use the drop-down menu to select "OS X Yosemite v10.10". ImageBrowser EX has not been updated for El Capitan or Sierra, but will work on the newer operating systems.
