How to transfer pictures from my Samsung mobile phone to my PC

Updated February 21, 2017

It is possible to send pictures stored on your Samsung mobile phone to your computer. You may have taken a picture on your phone that you want to share with others or use as a screen saver on your PC. You can only send one picture at a time by way of e-mail. If you want to transfer more than one picture from your phone to your computer, you will have to repeat the process. Certain charges may apply depending on your cell phone plan.
