Transfer files to a computer

Photos and videos can be moved from Glass to your computer using the USB cable included with Glass.

Transfer files to your Mac computer

By connecting Glass to your computer via the USB cable, you can import all or select files to your computer through applications like Image Capture or iPhoto.

  1. Connect Glass to your computer using the USB cable.

  2. An application (like Image Capture or iPhoto) will pop up, showing all the photos and videos on your Glass.

  3. Near the bottom of the window, select where you want to store your files.
  4. You can transfer all your files by clicking the Import All button. Or you can select one or several files and click Import. And finally, you can drag a file and drop it anywhere you want.

  5. Once files are imported, a green check symbol will appear in their lower right corner.

Unplug the USB cable when your files have transferred, and you’re done! Transferred files will remain in Glass until cleared.
