I'd forget that and just pull the memory card out to be read/copied out with a reader.
Images in SMS are likely stored elsewhere and being an Android phone you won't find any standard to where those pictures are stored or exported to. I've had to install other than stock messaging to fix such things. I find that I can not pick such an app for folk. Try a few on the Google Play store until you get one that can export what you want.
I have tried to sort this out for ages now so i decided to ask for advice here.
First of all for months now when i receive a text message with a photo from someone when i tap the image it actually "plays" for 5 seconds, like a video would. And i want it as a normal image so i can 'stretch' it larger to see it clearer.
When I actually take a photo with the phone it is normal where i tap it and it is actually an image and i can 'stretch' it larger – which i like to do.
How can i make the received photos from other people normal i.e. not to play – so i can stretch it?
Secondly, i can attach the phone with its usb cord to my desktop pc. I can manage to 'open the folder to view files' on my pc monitor. But on the computer when i look into every single folder of my mobile phone to find my short videos all i can find are jpg images.I cannot find actual short videos to view on the pc monitor.I do see a jpg image for each of the videos in that folder alongside all the regular jpg photos in that same folder (DCIM).
I would like to be able to plug into the pc and simply view the short videos i have taken on my mobile phone, and then simply transfer those videos intact onto the pc.
How can i do this please?
I am an amateur mobile phone user so if i have missed any details just ask away.
Thanks for any help you may be able to offer.......
