Hey everyone. I'd like to discuss methods for transferring multiple photos between devices, for instance from a smartphone to a computer.

I'm sure I'm not alone in that whenever I wanted a picture from my phone on my laptop, I used to simply upload it to Imgur, which I can access easily on both devices. However, since Imgur has decided to cut mobile upload service (for whatever stupid reason), that clearly doesn't work anymore. If it was just one or two photos I would email them to myself, but for upwards of 25 like I have to transfer now, that isn't super feasible.

How do you get around this problem? What's your preferred method of shuffling images around?

If I had to do this which I don't but I think your best bet is to utilize a cloud service like one drive or dropbox. Have a specified folder on the computer and get your phone to synchronize to that folder. But honestly for me I just upload my photo's automatically to one drive and I don't bother looking at it on a PC unless i need to access something from there. It's my primary source of backup for photos

I use the imgur app most of the time when uploading pictures from my phone, though I preferred the web version on mobile when it still existed. The interface is clunkier, but at least it exists. Just gotta make do with what we have. :pensiveazurill:

I might get the app someday; thanks for the response! In the meanwhile I realized the photos transfer just fine through Google Photos, so that took care of my problem.

Not gonna lie, what I do is upload images to discord and use the link it generates. I've got my own server where I dump stuff, and that way it just auto-generates a link. I can't be bothered to get a whole new app for photo uploads tbh

An easy one for phone to computer is just plugging your phone into your computer and transferring the files.

One that I've been using lately is the Google Photos app, it makes it really easy to sync stuff on the cloud. It's also able to scan your pictures for similar faces, meaning you can grab one picture in your gallery and have it find other pictures with the same people.

You can also set up shared albums and invite people to share pictures- that's what my family does for pictures at birthdays and stuff.
