    Go to Amazon or eBay and buy the hard drive, follow the instructions to plug into your PC and away you go.

    I also use an external hard drive. To back up my photos, I drag them across from the computer's hard drive to the external hard drive, holding down the Option key so as to copy and not move the files.

    Are they not on your computer now? Are you talking about just in the camera? If so, then you've got several steps of backing up ahead of you. Please clarify.

    What camera do you have? What computer operating system? What photo post processing programs are in your computer?

    If your phone is Android, you can move your photos to Google Photos which will store them on Google's server. You can then go to Google Photos on your PC and download them to your hard drive.

    Another option is to put a micro-SD card into your phone, move the photos on to that, take the micro-SD card out of your phone, into the adapter that came with the micro-SD card and into your PC SD slot. Then use Windows to move the photos across to your hard drive.

    Use PS to move them. Then they'll be in its library and you can identify them and tag them during the transfer process.
