As you take the pix, email them to yourself....from your phone. That's another way to do it.
That's not a horrible idea (emailing yourself the photos) but if you are sending multiple photos, like 10 or more, that can be a real PITA. Sometimes I open up the report on my phone and upload the photos directly to the report, save it, and then finish the rest of the report on my computer.
I don't have an iphone but u may want to try this to transfer photos. Use bluetooth. Turn it on your phone and laptop. The computers may ask to pair up. Then select the photos u want to transfer and select 'share' and the device name. I transfer from my android phone to my imac all the time.
This (Bluetooth transfer) was so simple! Less steps than uploading to Drive, and faster than email.
Thank you for this tip!
Honny - I hear you. The drive I use for my imac is the Western Digital My Passport for Mac, 1TB storage. It costs $60-$70 at Best Buy and connects via USB. Sure, it could break but to me it's worth it. I back up all my data at least to 2 different devices. I have data on one imac. I backup that to another imac via buetooth/wifi which then gets backed up to the WD drive. Between the 3 devices I have all my data.
I don't use any cloud at all.
