HTC Desire - upload photos...how??

I have (finally!) got HTC Sync to work. The PC recognises the phone. The phone recognises the PC

I cant figure out how to upload photos from the phone to my PC.


I used to use Windows Mobile with my Samsung and that was easy. One click and it uploaded the photos and gave them a name and a new file and everything!!

Hasnt this Desire got that sort of feature?

I don't have a desire, but on other handsets I have used, I select the pics I want then move them to a folder, not exactly as you wish, but then with my dedicated camera it got annoying that everytime you connected it would make a folder.

Isn't there a Photobucket 'App' for the phone?

Tap Photobucket app, tap upload photo, job done

I dont want to post them to photobucket. Its just work stuff. Sometimes I need to print them off but more often its just for future reference and would prefer them on my PC.

I figured out how to upload them last night at 1:30am but thanks very much for the input guys

Notice your double post there, my desire does that on here as well, I find if when you submit your post and you get the message about not posting within 30 seconds that you don't need to submit again, it will have worked, just go back into the thread and your post is there.

If you want to share photos online, get a free flickr account.

When you press and hold a photo on the phone and select share, one of the options it to upload to flickr - very handy.

Other than that just do what they said above, connect to the pc select "mount as disk drive" and the phone will just appear on the computer like another disk drive. Copy the photos across

I'll be honest, it seems like a very long winded and cumbersome way of going about things.

Techy geeky types might enjoy all this 'mount the drive to the usb...'

Windows mobile was so easy -
1. plug phone into PC.
2. windows mobile automatically checks phone for new sync info and any new data.
3. Windows Mobile uploads photos in new album to PC

ONE click of the mouse. Done.
