MacBook Air Tip: How to Transfer Photos using AirDrop
Today, I decided it will be awesome to share something I learned. It may be insignificant but it is the little things that I make a big deal. No, I do not take things for granted. It is always fun learning and this time it is using MacBook Air, thanks to a very wonderful and kind person. I was fortunate to learn a bit. As a blogger or photographer, we are always transferring photos to our USB or external drive. It’s the little tips that make a difference such as MacBook Air Tip: How to Transfer Photos using AirDrop.
Since the New Year began, I have been taking photos of the family, friends and some great views and had to transfer to get some more of this awesome view to share with you. It is always great to share our beautiful sunshine state, Miami. Presently it is not sunny but really it is still a great view to share with everyone especially our visitors. What is your view like at the moment? I’m looking back at these old photos and it brings me so much joy. The only thing with my MacBook is that the screen is on the small side. I’ve looked into getting an external monitor so that I can see my pictures in better form and I’ve found that bestbezellessmonitor has done some extensive research on them so really they’ve done the work for me. If I get back into photography, it might be a lot easier to have a dual screen. I could probably work a lot quicker. Ok, let’s get back to transferring those photos quickly and easily.
Here we go:
- Connect cellphone to the MacBook Air and open folder with all images.
- Select on cell camera the pics you desire to transfer to the Laptop
- On cellphone click on AirDrop
- Your cellphone name should appear
- Double click your cell phone Name icon on the cellphone
- an Icon that says AirDrop will appear with the amount of photos given a choice: Decline or Accept
- If you decline it will close the icon
- Click on Accept and another choice is given: Open in photos or save to Downloads
- Open downloads: you will go to Finder with the double face at the bottom on the left hand side
- Upon opening you will find all the beautiful photos you downloaded using AirDrop.
- You can copy and paste into your usb or external hard drive.
- As precaution: Use Command + copy then command + paste then remove and put in trash to delete otherwise you can use drag and drop and will automatically remove from AirDrop folder.
This is just one way to download photos without leaving a trace. There are other ways to transfer your photos but this is a clean quick and easy way to transfer. Yeah, it actually feels like a short cut, yippee! The job is done!!! The learning edge of technology. This year is a year of learning and trying all there is to become more successful.
Giving thanks to those who are confident and not afraid to share their knowledge with others. I, too, am willing to share as I learn as what I know cannot be taken away but will enlighten others to earn a living. It is how it is used that makes a difference: sharing is caring and this year is the year of the youths, therefore, we must help in any way possible to both young and elderly or mature persons, lol!!!
I am aware many know how to do this but I am delighted to share something new with the MacBook Air. At the moment, I am in the process of purchasing a laptop but am willing to test or review and give tips, ideas and suggestions. I will consider trying a new brand of laptop or remain with DELL? The financial associate will decide. Sure it will be a very interesting year!!
Happy New Year, my first post of 2018 to Knowledge is Power!
