Chromebook - How to workaround being unable to install software?

I'm researching the Chromebook as a replacement for my wife's laptop, which its replacement is vastly overdue. I'm really interested in getting feedback regarding how it operates without being able to install programs. My wife's main concern is that she won't have workarounds or it will be cumbersome to maintain the same functionality of her current laptop. Specifically of note, shes really worried about not being able to download from her cameras, a Canon SLR 60D and a point & shoot. How will she be able to do this? Has anyone had any major conceptual holes in this product? Overall impression / open-end feedback?

Thank you in advance for the help.


P.S. Sorry for the double post in the 12.1" section; newbie mistake not seeing the general section.

Here is a good answer: Take the SD card out, put it in your Chromebook or USB card reader, and then upload the pictures to Picasa under an album named for the date/trip so I don't have to name them all, and then leave them until they are required again. Presume you already have installed the Picasa extension from web store and have an account.!
