Well, the Blackberry Bridge allows you to open the pictures that are on the Torch on the Playbook. You can then do a screen shot (Volume Up + Down at the same time). You could send via email or Bluetooth transfer (I haven't been able to successfully transfer via BT).
Do you use Bridge?Nothing is so common as is the goal to be remarkable

I use files and folders to transfer files to and from PB and phone. Its a paid app maybe with a free trial. There may be some free apps that will work also but I cannot comment on those.
You could also plug the phone into the PC and using wifi transfer or USB on the PB just drag and drop.

there's no way of just wireless sending a photo to the playbooks storage. you can do "view on" and view it on the scren, but there's no way of saving it.
You can view them no problem via bridge, but there's no way evne in the built in filemanager of copying and pasting files over from one device to another.
I've had to resort to 3rd party file managers to do it.

USB Mass Storage Mode on the 9800 to use a PC to transfer it to the PC, then connect the PB and copy back. USB is far faster than any WiFi transfer.--

Moreover, PlayCloud offers tab features and multi-tasking. During a file transfert between phone and playbook - you can manage your dropbox or box account.

I wonder if it's due to the limitations of the current OS on both / either the Phones or the Playbook that is preventing the ability to transfer pictures to/from each other, ie, take a photo on the phone, click send to Playbook, and the photo is sent - no third party app, email, or desktop manager required.
Perhaps when BB10 is available, there will be greater syncing of material between the phone and the tablet.To RIM haters - Why dont you go find a parade and rain on it.

Just this morning I needed a 30 minute video that was on my wife's PB. Open filescout on BB, type ip in my wife's PB browser and upload. Easy and definitely faster then bluetooth.

That opens Filescout's screen in Firefox. 99 is the address of my 99xx.
