Synchronize your pictures from your computer to your smartphone or tablet

Before you begin:

You cannot synchronize encrypted pictures to your BlackBerry® PlayBook™ tablet.

  2. In the BlackBerry® Desktop Software, click Pictures.
  3. Click the Computer Pictures tab.
    • To synchronize all the pictures within a folder, select the check box beside one or more folders. If your pictures are in a folder that isn't listed, click Add folder. Find the folder and click OK. Select the check box beside the newly added folder.
    • To synchronize individual pictures, highlight the folder that contains your pictures. Select the check box beside one or more pictures.
  4. If you're using a smartphone and you want to keep your pictures at their original size, click Optimize to turn off the option.
  5. Click Sync.
Pictures that you synchronize from your computer to your smartphone or tablet are located in the Media application. If you selected a folder that contains subfolders on your computer, the subfolders also appear on your smartphone or tablet.
