If you need some photos or videos from your Smartphone or Tablet immediately and also resized in a folder of your Mac, then the usual Photo Sync / Backup Apps are a bit complicated, and some have problems with LAN Ethernet network connections. The "Realtime Photo Transfer" App automates the whole process, and you can scan the Mac Photo Server IP Address with the Android Device Camera as QR-Code. Fast and easy.
Here you can download the Mac Photo Server App: http://makeithappend.org/archives/3678
How to use:
Hint: If you are using this app at the first time, then open the App and press “Scan IP-Address QR-CODE”, then hold the camera in front of the opened Mac "Realtime Photo Transfer" Server App (Settings Window) with the QR-CODE
1. Open the Android Realtime Photo Transfer App and press “Confirm and Connect”
2. Open an Android Camera App and take some photos or videos
That's it. After some seconds you will find your photos resized (if you enabled it) in your Mac Folder. Then these files you can use immediately.
(Hint: if the App is connected, then in the Service Monitor-Icon you will see a “R”, not a “X”)
