      Absolutely, Laura. You can use the charging cord that came with your phone to connect to your computer. From there, you can copy your pictures from your phone and save them to the computer. Then you will be able to print or share them however you like. If you run into any trouble, just give us a call at 888-345-5509, and we can walk you through it. Thanks for asking!
