Tutorial: How to get photos from Cell Phone to Computer

After I 'fessed up in the blog the other day that my high school students had to teach me how to upload photos of my darling new granddaughter from my cell phone to my computer, several other people (all younger than me!) have admitted that they, too, have no idea how to accomplish the feat.

Well, here you go.

1. Click on the photo (either you just took it, or someone sent it to you and it's a message).

2. Click on "Options."

3. Click on "Forward."

4. Click on "1-2-3."

5. In the "1-2-3" menu, click on "Abc."

6. Type in your email address.

7. Click "OK."

8. Click "Send."

Done. It will show up in the inbox of your email as an attachment. You can download it from the email, and post it on your blog!

Steps 5 and 8 were the ones I had to remind myself about. Why don't you go take a couple of photos right now, and send them to yourself...or to me...just to practice! You'll be glad to have this skill in your bag o' tricks.

And it's not just for cheesy-smile-cell-phone-photos. The other day I was taking some close-up photos of a sewing project, and my not-so-hot camera was giving me photos like this.

I switched to my cell phone, which is designed to take close-ups, and got some great photos. Like this:

I'll post a bunch more of them tomorrow with a new craft tutorial...stay tuned!
