    Just got my HTC Desire. I've finally got HTC Sync working.

    How do I upload photos from my phone to my PC?

    I dont want to share them on the web. I just need to get them from my phone onto my PC (Windows Vista)


    I cant believe I cant figure out how to upload a picture!!

    What web? The best way is to use a picasa account and upload them directly from your phone :p

    EStrong File Explorer sends photos over wifi to shares on your pc.

    +1 from me

    I use Estrong constantly to swop between shares on the PC and Desire.

    Great App.

    you don't need to have HTC sync installed to mount the phone to pc. Just use as a normal HDD

    I am completely with you on this one. If I want to use Windows photo uploader it shows every single image on my phone including icons/pictures from the web browsing history. And because Vista changed the uploader you can't select only the ones you want to upload.

    To mount it as a HDD is a right royal pain as you then have to copy & paste, create folders, rename the folders & the contents accordingly. And also remember which photos you've already uploaded, rather than being prompted to upload any since the last time.

    And I, like you, don't want to upload them onto Flickr! I want to put them into my pictures album on my pc.

    A stupid shortfall in the otherwise flawless interface and hampers the useability of such an amazing phone. I bet the iPhone 4 doesn't have this problem ;-)

    If you find a solution, let me know?

    htc sync seems to do the job easily enough!

    otherise just drag and drop the dcim folder to you existing folder, when prompted to overwtire existing say no, then click apply to all !!

    *Dude*, that's what I'm saying I'm doing. But they then still need organising into folders with a date and title. And you still have to do them one by one. Or copy across all of them every single time you do this. Then what happens to the ones you've already organised as above? You've got a duplicate. Or you do them one by one.

    However if I have genuinely missed a way of copying them from my phone onto my pc and having them organised into named/dated folders as I could with my Nokia or Sony Ericsson then please explain this to me. I may have missed your point, I suspect you have actually missed mine.

    I think both myself and the original poster are basically astounded that there is no easy way to upload photos from an amazing phone to our PCs when the interface & useability for every other function is so well thought out.
