Thanks for that tip!

I just installed AirDroid on the Samsung Galaxy S3, and tested it out.

On single files, it seems to work exactly like Kies Air does, only with 
the AirDroid desktop being more intuitive than Kies Air's desktop:

The good news is that transferring the entire set of files was as 
simple as checking a checkbox (as was Kies Air); but, the better news
is that it actually worked (as opposed to Kies Air failing every time):
Note: AirDroid, by default, creates a single zip file, apparently to
get around the multiple-file restriction that fells Kies Air every time.

The bad news is that transferring select files was an exercise in
futility, simply because the standard shift key (to select blocks of 
photos) is apparently not implemented, and scrolling from file to file
would take the rest of your lifetime to get through the 300 pictures
that I have snapped on the Samsung Galaxy S3, it's that slow:

In summary:
a. AirDroid works, for single or multiple pictures, & is simple to use!
b. Use AirDroid for single pictures or small sets of contiguous pictures
c. Don't even attempt to download select (dispersed) photos!
d. Downloading the entire set of pictures is far easier, albeit slow.

Thanks for the AirDroid tip!
