According to consumer.huawei.com, image sharing supports transferring up to 500 images each time from Huawei phone to computer and works with phones running EMUI 9.0 or Magic UI 2.0 or later and Huawei PC with PC Manager 22.214.171.124 or later.

1. On your Huawei PC, enable Wi-Fi and Bluetooth and ensure that PC Manager is running in the background.
2. On your Huawei phone, swipe down the drop-down screen to turn on NFC, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth. Then, place your phone's NFC detection area against the computer's Huawei Share sensor or the touchpad. Once detected, your phone will start to vibrate or ring.
3. Confirm the connection on your phone and computer.
4. Once connected, open the Gallery app on your Huawei phone, and it will mirror simultaneously on the computer. Use your mouse to select and hold the picture until the drag-and-drop icon appears. Later, drag & drop the selected picture to your computer directly.
Huawei HiSuite is a desktop app for Windows PC and a pre-installed feature on all Huawei devices. With this app, you can back up the phone content to your computer and restore the backups to your Huawei device seamlessly.

Therefore, you can see that Coolmuster Android Assistant and Coolmuster Android Backup Manager are the optimal choices to consider. Whether you want to selectively transfer photos to a PC or back up all images on your Huawei device, they can meet your demands. So, why not download them and have a try?
