We have already reported a very practical and fast way to transfer photos from Android to your computer, for backup purposes; below we see instead how you can do the reverse operation that is transfer photos from computer to android safely and without wasting too much time. First of all it must be said that there are different ways of transferring photos from PC / Mac to Android: there is the manual method via USB connection, the one via bluetooth, via Wi-Fi and the one via third-party applications or software. Let's take a quick look at all of these solutions.
# 1. USB connection between Android and PC to copy photos
Using a USB cable, connect your Android phone to your Windows PC and then go to "My computer" to find out if the device has been detected as an "external disk". If detected, you can access the device memory and go to the folder DCIM where all the photos are present. At this point by dragging the photos from your PC into the folder DCIM you should be able to make the copy you want.
However, Windows often does not detect the Android phone as an external disk and it is therefore not possible to do this transfer of photos from the PC to Android. In this case you will necessarily have to rely on an "Android Manager" program to manage the data (and therefore also the photos) directly from the PC. Each mobile phone manufacturer usually provides an "official" data management program, for example Samsung provides the tool Smart Switch, Huawei provides the program HiSuite, HTC instead created HTC Sync Manager, and so on ... However, if you are looking for a "universal" program for managing data and transferring photos from your computer (both PC and Mac) to any Android mobile phone, we recommend using a program such as TunesGO, best described below.
