What kind of cell phone is it? It's a smartphone, right?
If you're using an android, you can simply download pictures from your phone to your computer by connecting them via a USB cable. Then drag and drop the pics to your PC.
If you're an iPhone user, you can finish the transfer via iTunes or 3rd party iTransfer tool. http://www.leawo.org/tutorial/transfer-photos-from-ipad-to-pc.html
Of course, you can also use email or Dropbox to send pictures no matter what device you're on.
You need to talk to your cell phone retailer or if your a techie, go on line to the cell phone's manufacturer and see if the software that links the cell phone to your PC is available for the model of phone you own. There should be fairly detailed instructions on how to use the software once it's installed. I have a Nokia, and it is available to back-up my messages, notes, contact list, multimedia, and organizer into my PC.
Connect your phone to a compatible computer with a compatible USB cable.
On your computer, open a file manager, such as Windows Explorer or Finder, and browse to your phone.
Tip: Your phone is shown under portable devices as Windows Phone. To see the folders of your phone, double-click the name of the phone. There are separate folders for documents, music, photos, ringtones, and videos.
Open the folder for photos, and select and copy the photos to your computer.
Tip: If your computer's operating system is Windows 7 or Windows 8, you can also use the Windows Phone app. With Windows 7, you can download it from http://www.windowsphone.com/.
Determine the type of connection
you will use to upload pictures from your cell phone to your PC. For
example, if your telephone has BlueTooth capabilities and you have a
notebook computer with BlueTooth, you may be able to upload pictures
without purchasing any additional equipment.
Purchase additional equipment
needed, such a data link cable or blue tooth hardware to add to your
computer. To find the data link cable for your individual cell phone,
try visiting your local cell service provider retail store. Stores often
keep these cables in stock. The cost for a cable runs from $20.00 and
Make sure that the new cable
fits properly in your cell phone and computer ports. The computer
connection should be a basic USB connection.
Download and Install Software
Visit the website for your cell
phone's manufacturer, for example the LG website. Do a search for
downloads or software and locate the proper download for your cell phone
and Windows (or MAC) platform on your PC.
Install the software and follow
directions carefully. Often, there will be very specific steps involved
in ensuring that the cell phone and the computer recognize one another.
For example, if you connect the phone before downloading and installing
the software, the computer may not recognize your cell phone properly.
Test the software and make sure
everything is working properly. You should be able to pull up the
software and upload all the pictures and videos on your telephone. Every
cell phone manufacturer uses different software. While there isn't a
single tutorial that will cover how to use every type available, most
software comes with specific instructions and tutorials that will help
you learn how to easily use the features available.
Try putting your phone in "Mass Storage" or "Disk" mode, it's under Tools on most LGs. If your phone doesn't have that option, try simply plugging your phone into the computer and letting Windows search for the driver. If all else fails, consult LG's web page for your phone, they should have the driver available for download.
