Honestly, many users may choose to transfer Android photos to computer with the SD Card. While I prefer to use the Android manager – MobileGo for Android. It lets you transfer photos via Wi-Fi. It's convenient, especially when there's something wrong with your USB cable. Apart from photos, this program empowers you to do more things that you can’t do with a single SD card. You can backup and restore all data on your Android phone and tablets, namely, contacts, call logs, SMS, music, videos, apps and calendar. If you download many fantastic apps, you can install them to your Android phone or tablets as well.

Yes, Dave, MobileGo doesn't support exporting entire albums for the time being. However, you can create a new album and export all photos from your Android phone to it.
can not export entire albums, or entire photo collection at one time while keeping the album organization????
