Some are camera shots and some are from attachments from texts. By just looking at my profile portrait,you know I've got problems with the mechanics of this stuff.
This stuff is all new to me. So please let me continue. Obviously, my profile picture isn't me- it's my dog, Rosco. But he can be my avatar.
I definitely have problems with the transfer of data between my phone and laptop. Can I be helped?
I have other issues, but they are for a later discussion.
Thanks for your time. Talk soon.

If not, can you tell me what kind of phone you are using?
Thanks for a quick response. I just got a Samsung S4 about a month ago, it's my first smart phone. It easily " outsmarts me " all the time, but I'll get it. I would also like to download into my laptop, the pictures people send me via texts.

The camera is discussed about 7 and 1/2 minutes into the video. It discusses how to take various kinds of pictures with your camera but not so much about downloading pictures to your PC.
I know what you mean, sometimes the smart phone seems to be smarter than I am; however, if I can learn this you can too. Hope you enjoy your new phone.
