    there are several ways. in some cases it depends on the phone, other cases it depends on where/what the picture is from

    try long pressing the pic and choosing the 'share' option

    If I understand your question correctly, then the solution is pretty simple. This will work if the image you are looking for was one taken with the camera.

    1. Plug your phone into the PC. You may have select the USB Storage" mode
    2. From the computer, open "My Computer"
    3. Find your phone and open the shortcut.
    4. Select the folder named "DCIM"
    5. Select the folder named "Camera"

    Your images should be in this folder. You could also e-mail the photos to yourself, but that isn't very practical. Let me know if this doesnt work for you.

    If you are looking for an image associated with a specific app, you should try to find that apps folder and start there.

    Thanks to both of you for your quick responses. Unfortunately I could not get either to work, when I went to "share" downloading was not one of the options, I have an LG Qualcom 3G phone. When I hooked up my phone to my computer, then went to My Computer, the phone did not show. I looked in several places and was able to find it through searching for the USB connections, but had an error saying that I needed a driver, I searched the internet for a driver and none were to be found. Any ideas as to what I should do now, other then emailing each picture ( there is a 94 of them)?

    I came across this link. It looks like it includes the USB driver and some sort of unlocker. If the USB driver is legit then you should be able to access the phone. It is an Indian forum, but looks legit.



    Just be sure you scan for viruses/malware etc.
