I have samsung galaxy s and i could not transfer pictures in phone to imac or mac pro. I need help to do so.
If you're referring to the original Galaxy S you're in the wrong part of this forum. But if you're referring to the Galaxy S II here's a link for the Mac version of the software.
Since Samsung and T-Mobile have abandoned the original Galaxy S your best be is to go to third party sites like XDA that may have the support dirvers for Mac.
On either the original Galaxy or the SII you just plug the usb cable into the phone and also into the computer. A dialogue will come up advising you to click on the button to mount the device. You then can treat the mounted "drives" like any drive and drag photos from the phone to the computer. You will see two drives, one is the phone memory and the other is the SD card memory. The way the dialogue is presented varies by the OS installed on the phone, but the steps are basically the same. On my SII, I have to pull down the menu to see the mount option.
chenderson2 wouldn't they need the drivers for their respective phone first in order to work with a Mac?
Have you tried the dropbox route? When I take pics they are automatically uploaded to dropbox the next time I connect to wifi then I sync them to my computer.
The missing sync is an android app you might want to check out.
Syncing with Picasa is another option.
Another option you have is to get a micro SD card adaptor, set your camera to take pictues to your SD card and just plug the microSD card in to the adaptor and both into the SD card reader. Your pictures will be in the folder DCIM
If interrested in the dropbox route, I recommend this. It really works, I have almost 22 gb. A one time fee of 5.00 is worth it unless you have a lot of referrals yourself.
Google drive is free and offers 5gb of storage.
I have google drive 5gb, skydrive 25gb, dropbox 22gb, sugarsync I think 8gb, box 50gb and an trying out ubuntu 1 and have a beta account with cubby. All free accounts.
Dropbox has the best app, best bar none for syncing. Automatically syncs pics and video after taking if you wish.
Sugarsync has a very good app, but some problems with cofrupt fileswhen you retreive backups.
Google drive, good for storage but worthless app except for docs.
Skydrive, good for storage but no app. 3 rd party apps, but no good for syncing.
Box is fine, but they limit file size, etc. on free account.
An app called foldersync works great and you can sync to all of them, not free if you want to sync to more than one. I have it, great for syncing to multiple accounts.
Ubuntu and cubby? The jury is still out.
Just my .02
I forgot to add. My recommendation? Dropbox free 2gb for syncing, if you need more pay the one time 5.00 to have the guy get you 16gb in referrals, and use skydrive and google for general upload storage.
I'm retired/disabled, live in a small pueblo, and have way too mu,htime on my hands.:-)
I just email the pics to myself and save them to my MacBook next time I'm on it.
