Share them by a messaging service

You can send the photos to a contact or group in any messaging service and download them to your computer by connecting to the web version of the application you have chosen (although you must take into account thatthe quality will be lower). If you will use a messaging service, our recommendation is Telegram for its functionalities and security .
