    So I'm constantly taking screenshots on my phone of funny things.. I'd like to know, how can I sync these screenshots automatically with my laptop? These are pictures I never want to lose .

    You could use iCloud photos or even google photos to backup all your photos to the cloud. Then when you're on your laptop, log on to icloud.com or google.com/photos.
    Hope this helps

    Turn on iCloud Photo Sharing on both your iPhone (and laptop), create an album to place those photos into, open Photos app on your laptop and you should see them.

    I assume you're using a Mac?

    Here is some info for you. I suspect one of these options will accomplish what you want to do. iCloud or Photo sharing not required if you just wanting to transfer to PC/Laptop/Mac. Actually the Win 10 info is incorrect. Just use the Photos app and import option for Windows 10.

    If you want to save only selected photos, I don't see how you can do it automatically. IOS cannot know which you want to save and which you don't. But you can select the photos, choose "share," and then choose how you want to share them. Email them to yourself or Airdrop them to your other computer seem like good choices. Or get a free Dropbox account and share the selected photos to Dropbox.
