USB Cable

If your phone has a USB connector and installation CD in the box, this means it can be connected to your computer. Installation of the CD will put applications onto the computer that allow it to recognise the phone when it is plugged into the computer's USB port. After connecting the phone, open the application installed by the CD and it will guide you through the process of pulling the pictures off the phone onto the computer's hard drive. This method will vary according to different phone models and applications.

Multimedia Messaging

The most common method to transfer pictures from an LG phone is to use the phone's multimedia messaging system. This method is simple to use and will send the picture from the phone to an e-mail account, from which the photos can be downloaded to the hard drive of the computer. This process is done by going into the phone's multimedia messaging system and selecting the picture you want to send. Then enter the destination e-mail address and select "Send." This method will only send one picture at a time, but it works with any phone that can send multimedia messages.

New Computers and USB Cable

Most new computers will automatically detect the phone as a hard drive when connected to the computer. This is an easy method that simply involves plugging the phone into the computer through the USB cable and the computer will do the rest, opening a pop-up screen asking what you would like to do next. There will be an option titled "Copy pictures to a folder on My Computer," which will walk you through the process of saving all of your pictures into a folder on the hard drive.
