Notsure Uploading Pics - Samsung Galaxy Exhilarate

Short Question: How do I upload pictures from only the gallery on my Exhilarate to my pc?

Long explanation: I am a former Blackberry user. Blackberries come with software that makes it super easy to upload pictures Iíve taken. Uploading pictures from my new Galaxy Exhilarate, however, has proven to be exhausting.

I plug the USB cable into my pc. On the phone I get an option to turn on USB storage. I turn it on and get the appropriate prompt on my pc to upload pictures. The problem is that it uploads every single picture Iíve ever viewed on the phone (900+: facebook profile pictures, random stuff from the web, Words screen shots, etc.). What am I doing wrong?

Welcome to AF laurla2!

Is it doing this automatically, or are you using Kies to manage the phone via the PC? You should just be able to mount the phone as a USB Storage device on the PC when you plug it in.

When it's plugged in, can you pull down the notification bar on the phone and see if there's a USB Storage option?

Thanks for the welcome!!

I wasn't having any trouble getting the USB storage option on the phone, it was what happened next but I figured out this was a problem with my PC, not the phone!

I simply used Roxio (the software on my computer, I'm not familiar with Kies) to 'transfer' pictures rather than 'import' which was grabbing every photo ever viewed on the phone.

Thanks!
