Good afternoon,

Give me just a moment and I will put together the instructions for you. Are you using a Windows computer, or a Mac?

My goal today is to provide you with the best service possible! I sincerely ***** ***** have earned a 5 star rating! Please remember to rate my service by selecting the 5 stars at the top of the screen before you leave today. If you need more assistance, please use the reply box and let me know.

  1. On your Mac, click this link to download Samsung SideSync.
  2. While that is downloading, open the Play Store app on your phone and install the SideSync app
  3. Once you have it installed on your Mac, and the app on your phone, open both.
  4. If you connect the phone directly to the Mac, it will connect without verification--OR--You can have both the computer and the phone on the same WiFi network, and then your phone and computer will ask you if you want to connect to each other.
  5. Once you are connected, you can use the File Transfer/Photos tool to transfer them

I have tried everything but nothing connects! very frustrated. You are great, my tech skills are not. I am in mexico on a VPN....does that screw things up?

No, it shouldn't. But, are you trying with it connected to the computer directly with the USB cord it came with? If not, no worries, I have a backup solution for you :)

I have it connected with the USB cord it came with.

And if you open the Sidesync program on the Mac, and on the phone at the same time, it does nothing? It does not even ask you on your phone if you want to authorize the connection?

Customer reply replied 3 months ago
No questions at all.
. But when I click on the sideSync logo on the computer, it gives me option of installing SideSync!
Customer reply replied 3 months ago
if it asks that, does it mean it ISN"T downloaded yet on the MAC?

Choose yes, to install it, and see what happens.

Nope. I have to give up for now, Eric. I will rate it above for sure.and maybe call you friday.
Thanks so much.

I can give you another option for now if you want, and you can go it while you're "on the go"... would you like the instructions?

Sure!That would be awesome. These things used to be so easy!

Ok, I am on a remote session with someone right now, but if you can wait a few moments, I will be able to help you. And honestly, the way I am going to give you, is the easiest thing ever, but it is not the traditional way, so I do not offer it first.

However, in order to use it... are you able to log in to Google.com with the same account that is on your phone? (log in on your computer)

Ask Your Own Android Devices Question
Customer reply replied 2 months ago
I can

Ok, on your phone, open the Play Store and search for Google Photos. Not only is this app MUCH BETTER than the Samsung Gallery, it has awesome benefits. It syncs your photos, AS YOU TAKE THEM, to your Google account. When you are setting it up, choose "Original Size" not anything else (maybe it is Original Resolution).

Now, when you open the app for the first time, it needs to sync all the photos that exist, so it may take some time. However, here's where the cool part comes in... on your computer, go to https://photos.google.com and you will find ALL your pictures, and can download or edit them. And, every time you take a picture, it will show up there. No need to plug anything into the computer to sync photos ever again.

That worked! Awesome! Now my question is, how do i take all these off my phone, but leave them on my computer?

I am out at a Thanksgiving dinner right now, but when I get home I will let you know :)

Tomorrow is fine!!!!

Ok, great, I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

Ask Your Own Android Devices Question

Good morning!

I just looked through the settings, and Google Photos has actually made it easier than it used to be. All you need to do is open the Photos app, tap on the Menu icon(top left) and tap on Free Up Space. This will remove the photos from your device, but safely keep them in your Cloud. The thumbnails also stay in the app, so you can still see the pictures, if you tap on one it downloads the full size image again to show you.
