+# This script sets up and runs a Python Script which, at intervals invokes a capture 
+# command to the Raspberry Pi camera, and stores those files locally in a dynamically
+# named folder.
+
+# To invoke, copy this script to an easy to find file location on your Raspberry Pi
+# (eg. /home/pi/), log into your Raspberry Pi via terminal and type:
+#
+# sudo python /your/file/location/raspiLapseCam.py (add &) if you wish to run as a
+# background task. A process ID will be shown which can be ended with
+
+# sudo kill XXXX (XXXX = process number)
+
+# Based on your settings the application will no begin capturing images
+# saving them to your chose file location (same as current location of this file as default.
