I've got advil in my desk....want some?
Ok....you're uploading TO the computer from the camera.
BUT, from the computer's point of view, it's DOWNloading from the camera.
Then, you're UPloading TO the server.
You UPload when you say "to...." somewhere.
You DOWNload when you say "from..." somewhere
It's easier to understand from computer to server that's somewhere else, not in your house.
The camera to computer thing.....
I agree, just say transfer.
but, the original question,..
Are the terms upload and download interchangeable?
but, it all is a matter of perspective.
BTW, I used to have to teach people how to Get/Put files.
Then we got FETCH (great little MAC software for File transfer)...
Then we (ok, I) were (was) forced to switch to WS-FTP when I got a job where they didn't use MACS...
now, we're on a different software for file transfer.
I still find myself drawing little houses and computers on the whiteboard and little curvy arrows with "files" flying through the air to explain the process. It works, 99% of the time. I've got one this semester, though....oy!
