How do you retrieve photos from your own photo albums?
I lost a lot of my favourite pictures when I loaded a backup to my phone, I can't seem to copy them from my albums here, does anyone know a way round it?

Do you have a google account?

[@44064,LikeMind] Your pictures are likely stored on google. type google photos in your search bar and see what happens.

The are pictures here on SW I don't have any alternative solution as I lost them when an upgrade wiped them. 🙁

Look for some app on Apple store or Google play

What sort of app? The photos are here on SW [@637402,21stcenturygirl]

open the picture here, then copy/paste it into a program like IRfanview, then save in a new folder on your computer, and transfer to your phone.

I've tried to copy and paste, without success. And I've tried to save it too [@189866,pagandad]

Can you download them? Not copy and paste.
That's what I can do on my Android.
I click on my picture, then it gives me options. Scroll down to download picture.

[@44064,LikeMind] possibly. It works on my Android and my iPad this way.

[@7979,Hatt94] I have only tried on my iPhone. 👍🏻

[@44064,LikeMind] it works on my iPad, so should also on the iphone.
Good luck. It took me a bit. I had a bunch of pics on SW, but not my phone. I've copied them now.

I know you asked over 3 months ago, but if you've not managed to recover them yet, try this (as I have just experimented with my own profile):

Don't need Google etc. Go from within SW. -

Open your profile then albums, then open a photo.

Below the picture, should be a menu of SW album options.

Select "Download", and it should respond with the image given a file-name that includes your user name.

One loaded from SW's server, save it as you wish.
