How often do you take a screenshot on your mobile phone or a photo to forward it to your desktop? How often do you have to do the same for a video recorded with a mobile phone?
I’m sure you use the standard method of transferring media files from your mobile phone to your computer, just like everyone else. Today I present an intelligent approach that will not only save you time, but also improve your workflow. Especially for bloggers and designers this will be an excellent tip to quickly and efficiently transfer and edit images/videos.
I couldn’t help emphasizing the importance of programs like Snagit (for images) and Camtasia (video) for a blogger.
Both are a company called TechSmith, founded in 1987, and I love them for their innovative creations that make life easier for many users like you and me. If you haven’t used Snagit or Camtasia, I suggest you download it now. It is available for all desktop operating systems and you can try it for free for 30 days.
I made this video on Snagit to give you an idea of what this great tool for capturing and editing images can do for you.
Let’s go back to the subject of this article, namely the transfer of multimedia files from mobile phones to desktop computers. TechSmith has a free mobile application called Fuse, which you are going to love. In this tutorial I will explain what the Fuse application is and how to use it.
TechSmith fuse: Fast transfer of images/videos from the SmartPhone to your desktop
The TechSmith Fuse application lets you click on images, create videos, and share them directly with Snagit or Camtasia on your desktop. You can also browse the media library on your existing smartphone and select files to transfer to your desktop. This free application is available for iOS, Android and Windows Smartphone.
The Fuse application is also designed to improve grip with the handy freehand drawing tool.
How to connect the Fuse to Snagite or Camtazia:
For the data transfer to work, your phone and computer must be connected to the same network. I’ll show you how to connect them to Snagit.
Open Snagit on your desktop and tap File > Connect Mobile Device.
The lower screen with the QR code is displayed:
You need to scan this QR code with the Fuse application on your smartphone. Open the Fuse Application and click on the Settings button (I use iOS and the Android user interface may be slightly different) Select Snagit or Camtasia, choose the software you want to connect to, and then click Connect New Device.
Scan the QR code and with one click you can transfer photos or videos from your phone to your computer.
How to upload photos or videos:
Once your Fuse application is connected to Snagit or Camtasia, sharing your photos or videos is easy. The Fuse application also allows you to take new photos or videos and share them quickly. You can also click on albums and upload previously taken photos or videos.
In this case I selected the photos I had clicked previously.
Once you have selected the photos and videos you wish to upload, click on the resource icon below. On the next page, click the Share button and select the software (Snagit, Camtasia, TechSmith Relay).
Within seconds your selected photos or videos are transferred to Snagit and from there you can make any changes and adjustments to the image. Usually I upload photos for inclusion in my blog using Fuse + Snagit and for video I use Camtasia.
There are many other ways to transfer media files from your phone to the office, but for bloggers and web perspective wizards I found the perfect Fuse application. You can also use Camtasia to record the screen of your smartphone to make a screencast of your mobile application. I will tell you in the following articles, but in the meantime you can enjoy the 30-day trial of Camtasia & Snagit. Use the Fuse app to quickly transfer photos/videos from your smartphone and let me know how it works for you.
Let me know what method you use to quickly and wirelessly transfer media files from your smartphone to your desktop.
