Ensure PhotoSync is installed on both your source device and target device. The PhotoSync client application software for your Mac is available at https://www.photosync-app.com/downloads.

To send one or more photos/videos from your Mac, just select one or more photos/videos in Finder, or select one or more folders and drag and drop the selected objects onto the PhotoSync icon in your Dock or onto the PhotoSync icon in your menu bar. You can also drag pictures from websites out of your web browser onto the PhotoSync icon.
