Transitioning your entire data to a new device can be frustrating, but it does not need to be that way if you adhere to the right instructions.

Getting pictures moved from any mobile device to the Galaxy S10 is easy, irrespective of whether the transfer is taking place from an iPhone or a different Android phone. Only a PC – Windows or Mac – that will function as an intermediate stop for copying the pictures.

How Can I Transfer Photos From An Older Device To The Galaxy S10 Using A PC?

  1. Link your old device to a Windows computer with a USB connection cable and ensure it is unlocked.
  2. Access a folder on the desktop and tap “This PC” in the Navigation pane on the left.
  3. An icon for the old phone should be visible. Right-click it and select “Import pictures and videos.”
  4. It might take a while, it depends on the number of pictures you have on your smartphone. When it is done, tap “Import all new items now” and give the folder a name that the photos will be copied to. E,g “Old Device.”
  5. Tap “Next.”
  6. Hold on for the pictures to be copied to your PC (once more, this can take a while.)
  7. Link your Galaxy S10 to the PC with its USB connection cable and ensure it is unlocked.
  8. Access a folder and tap “This PC” in the Navigation pane on the left.
  9. Double tap the icon for the Galaxy S10. Within it, an icon named “Phone.” will be seen. Double tap that too.
  10. Double tap the folder named “DCIM” and then double tap “Camera.” This is the folder where the pictures are saved.
  11. If your PC automatically opened the folder with your old device’s pictures, locate it now. If that is not the case, open that folder – it can be found in your Pictures folder, named with the present date, and then the name you gave it, something like “2019-07-1 Old Device.”
  12. Choose all of the pictures and have them dragged into the Galaxy S10’s Camera folder.

All of your old pictures are now transferred to your new Samsung Galaxy 10. If you need to preserve space on your PC’s hard drive, you can now get rid of the folder of pictures from your old device.

As per transferring your pictures from a Mac, though, things are more complex. It all depends on the type of phone you have. Adhere to these instructions:
