  1. Ensure PhotoSync is installed on both your source device and target device (iPhone, iPod, iPod Touch, Android phone/tablet).

  2. Run PhotoSync on both your source device and target device. Attention: Ensure both target and source devices are connected to the same Wi-Fi network.

  3. Select a picture/video folder on your source device.

  7. It can happen that no target device is found because some Wi-Fi routers may not support the automatic device detection that PhotoSync uses. If your Wi-Fi allows access between devices in the same Wi-Fi network you can connect to the target device by entering the internet (IP) address of the device manually. PhotoSync remembers this input and will find your device automatically the next time your try as long as the device uses the same address.

    To manually enter the address of the target device please tap on the "Add device manually (IP)" link at the bottom of the device search window.

  8. You will be presented with an input mask to enter the IP address and the port of the target device. Enter IP address and port of the target device and tap on Done to start the detection of the target device.

  9. To get the IP address and port of your target device, please press the red transfer button on the target device, select the Receive section and tap on the Phone/Tablet symbol. In this example, the IP address of the target device is 192.168.56.102 and the port is 8080. With your own devices, the IP address will be very likely different.
