    Connect the phone via usb cable (the one you use to charge it more than likely). On the phone itself you can go into settings and for usb connection set it to "storage". You also will likely get a dialog box pop up when you plug it in asking you what you want to do with the files. Don't sync. Choose open folders with Windows Explorer. The phone will be mounted as a lettered drive. You can go into Computer find the phone/drive and browse the files like a hard drive. Pictures are usually in a folder called DCIM. You can also just do a search on the drive for any and all .jpg files and that will lead you to the pictures. Copy and paste them onto the laptop hard drive. The screen shots below show how I get to the pictures on my Android phone. This is Windows 7 but the idea is the same. Do not choose the option to sync. Just go to the drive letter assigned to the phone. There may also be pictures on the storage card and you can browse to those as well. In my case the pictures are in the DCIM/MEDIA100 folder in the main phone storage.
