For Android: Transferring images from one device to another is necessary if you just got a new device and want to transfer your SketchBook images over to it. For this, follow the steps below.
However, if you’ve recently updated to the latest version of SketchBook, you’re Gallery may look a bit empty. You didn’t lose your files. They just need to be added to the new Gallery. See How to import SketchBook files from an older version into the latest version SketchBook for Android.
