How to pass Photos from Android to PC using a cable

This is the most classic way to transfer photos from mobile to pc. Solo necesitamos un cable USB, el cual viene en muchos dispositivos móviles a modo de cargador. Si tu dispositivo móvil no vino con ningún cable USB, puedes comprar uno en alguna tienda o comprarlo por Internet a pocos euros.

Afterwards, all you have to do is cut the photos you want to remove from your phone (Select the photos you want and tap Right Click -> Cut), Go to the location where you want to store your PC and press Right click -> Paste.

Once downloaded, open it, log in and go to the three lines to the left of the Seeker -> settings -> Backup and Synchronization -> Choose High Quality (which has unlimited storage) or Original (that will be deducted space in your account in the cloud).
