Sharing images over wifi from laptop/phone to raspberry pi

Sat Feb 13, 2016 11:31 am

Hi guys,
I am just a beginner in raspberry pi. I use a raspberry pi 2 model b on which it took me three days to set up a wireless connection with my laptop. :D
Could anyone please tell me on how i can share images from my laptop or phone to the pi via wifi??
Thanks in advance :)

By far, easiest is to transfer using thumb drive.
Else search and read about samba (SMB) setup on RPi, so you can mount a share created by the Laptop. But if you don't know the jargon and haven't do this, stick to the thumb drive.
