Rescue Pics for Your Phone


Camera phones ensure you never miss the perfect photo opportunity, but capturing special moments doesn’t do any good if you don’t know how to get the photos off your phone. Try these ideas for rescuing those memorable images. (As always, be sure to check the instruction manual for info specific to your phone.)

E-mail yourself
Many phones offer e-mail capabilities, so you can send the photos to yourself and download them to your computer.

Swap cards
Some phones give you the option to save photos to a memory card like the one your camera uses. Just eject the card and take it to a photo-processing kiosk or a card reader.

Plug in
Connect your phone to a USB port on your computer using a data cord. Many photo-software applications, such as iPhoto, Microsoft Media Center, and ACDSee Photo Manager, will detect photos on your phone and download them.

Forget wires
If your phone has Bluetooth capabilities, you can transfer photos to a Bluetooth-enabled computer.

Upload with ease
Some photo services, such as Flickr, Snapfish, Shutterfly, and Walgreens, have mobile apps that allow you to upload images from your phone to store, share, and print.
