The Library of Congress offers several handouts on digital preservation. Their handout regarding uploading images from your digital camera is here:
Uploading images from you cell phone is very similar.
- Many cell phones now have microchips that can be taken out of your phone and plugged into your computer to upload images.
- If your cell phone does not have a microchip or you do not know how to find it, you can also connect your cell phone to you computer using a USB port. If this is the case follow the directions in the digital camera handout to upload your photos.
- You can also take your cell phone and a USB flash drive to a photo development store and see if they can upload the images onto the flash drive for you.
- If your phone has the internet, you can email the photographs to yourself (Be careful of data loss, however!).
