You may not believe just how easy it is to transfer pictures from your android phone to your computer!
Millions upon millions of people already know this. I may be among the last to know but I thought it was so awesome, I should share it with those who may not know.
If you have ever been on the phone with a service technician because of a malfunction on your smart phone, you may have heard that dreaded statement “We will need to reset your phone back to factory settings.” The very first thing you think of is that you do not want to lose your pictures, right!
I am not a technical person therefore this will not be a technical explanation. Trust me, this process is actually very easy. If I can do it, you can too!
What you need
- Your computer to which you will load your pictures
- Your phone
- Your phone charger cord
Isn’t that a handy little tidbit of information! Disconnect the cord from the plug.
First things first. If this is your first time, your computer is going to need to recognize this ‘new device’ you have plugged in. Say yes to allow the connection when the pop up comes up asking you if you want to allow it.
The pictures will now begin to download.
Be patient. The amount of time the transfer depends on how many pictures are on your phone. I had in excess of 2,000 and it took every bit of 30 minutes to transfer them all.
This pictures went straight into the Pictures folder on my laptop because, well the phone is smart and apparently the computer is too, so they just know where to go. (how do you like that explanation, techy friends?)
Once the transfer is complete, your computer will let you know. There should be a little bar on the screen throughout the process which will keep showing the progress.
Boom, the pictures are saved to your computer! You may want to save them to a Thumb drive or DVD or send them all to some cyberspace storing station.
Wasn’t that easy?
