hello, you should have received a USB cable when you bought the phone. it has one end that plugs into the phone and one plugs into the computer just like you plug in an external drive or USB drive. you can try the program Samsung Kies, but it's much easier to get your pictures off the device by going into it as if it's an external drive. the path on a pc should be similar to this: open computer or my computer> should see your phone as eternal drive> DCIM > camera (or gallery or photos). copy them to a folder on your computer. on a Mac you can use image capture or android file transfer.

Android users can directly plug their Android phone into computer and drag photos and videos to any folder for safe keeping.

An android phone manager could help you transfer android phone data to computer easily, try Coolmuster Android Assistant.

Hello Emi

This post is 2 years old. I doubt the person is still looking for an answer.

You can directly connect your Samsung to computer with a usb cable, after detection, you can select ans copy pictures from the folder of Samsung to computer.
