If you want to upload pictures to computer from Android smartphone, SkyDrive is one of the most easiest way you can find. On my earlier post i wrote about share photos to android, today i’ll show you how to upload pictures you had on android to computer using SkyDrive service from Microsoft. I said “Android” earlier, it doesn’t mean this method limited to only a smartphone. You can also use this method for Android emulator such as AndroVM or even the apps player — BlueStacks.
There are plenty service out there offering free service for cloud storage, one of them was Google Drive and previously mentioned DropBox. All you need to use this service is an account, in this case Microsoft or Live.com account. So make sure you have an account before continue, otherwise get one from login.live.com.
See in your computer if you already have SkyDrive installed on your Computer, otherwise grab the application from SkyDrive official Website (also supported Mac OS). For windows first setup:
Now you’ve done setting up skydrive on computer, we’ll continue setting up for Android
We’re now ready to start uploading pictures to computer, let’s continue.
You can do vice versa, uploading pictures into Android from Computer. Just copy a picture into SkyDrive folder either from Windows explorer or application. You can also use Web interface just in case if you’re on other computer and want to work with shared files.
You can also export pictures or photos from SkyDrive folder into apps, for example WhatsApp. Just select a picture inside folders (this will bring the picture into detail view).
Sync process will be automatics between android and computer. SkyDrive will scan for update after a new files/pictures uploaded into SkyDrive. You can see an animated tray icon of SkyDrive while syncronizing on Windows as a sign of sync process.
