If I get lazy, I'll compose an email on my phone and leave it in draft then go to my desktop open the email and go to drafts then download them from there.

Fireguy is correct. Plug your phone into your computer USB.  It acts like an external hard drive. When the file menu comes up, click on internal storage, then DCIM, then camera. Your pictures should appear.

If you have your phone synced with a phone companion on your computer, you can see messages, talk on the phone using the computer and see photos. I have not been able to see video by that application though.

In some cases  the device may default to charge only.  If it does, just pull down the notification bar, tap on USB, and set it to file transfer.
