This e-how will cover some of the basic ways in which to transfer pictures from your cell phone to your PC.
Things You'll Need:
- USB link
- SD card or Micro SD card
- Memory card reader (internal or external)
- Camera cell phone
1There are many ways to do it. I will go from the most mundane to the more difficult. If you have an internet connection or messaging on your phone. Then you can simply select the "option","tool" to send the picture to your email address. If you don't have an email account. Go to Yahoo! or Gmail, for example, and sign up for an account.
2If you are unable to send email, then you can go to the next step. I am spoiled and the phone I use has an SD card. So I remove the SD card from its hiding place atop my Treo and I place it in the SD slot on my computer.
3Continuing with the SD card or what have you on your smart phone. And you want to pursue this avenue. You can purchcase an inexpensive card reader, which is easy to hook up to yoru computer. The picture displays an internal card reader.
4Another method is sending a photo via the IR (infra red). But like the SD card, your laptop must also have an IR port. The IR port is the one with the light red or clear glass over it. You will need to send the picture through the IR port and make sure that your computer and the phone are "looking" at each other through the ports.
5Another interesting method is if you have a USB connection that you can sync with your computer than you can simply save the pictures to another part of your computer once the software is up and running.
6The cord that hooks to the computer is the same method that the iPhone uses and when your pictures come up on Ttunes you can save it to another part of your hard drive.
7If you have bluetooth you can also transfer the pictures by linking to a computer that also has Bluetooth. You may have to purchase a bluetooth adapter. This is fairly cheap and is a good way to get your pictures from your phone to your computer.
8If for some reason none of these options work for you, than using the Internet is an alternative. You can use a flickr account. If you need a flickr account copy and paste the word into a search engine and then follow the instructions to create an account.
9All in all, using any of the following: IR, Bluetooth, USB cable, memory card, email and internet upload should enable you to transfer a photo from your camera phone to your computer.
10Good luck selecting a method that is best for you.
