You will need the disc that suppose to come with Blackberry (Blackberry Desktop Manager). Load this program into your computer or else your computer will not reconize the blackberry when you hook up Blackberry to computer. There maybe is a Blackberry Desktop Manager program that you can download from the RIM/Blackberry website, if no BDM disc. After you have the program, you can use Desktop Manager to copy pictures from Blackberry to computer, or use Blackberry like a USB drive (don't know if you running Windows XP or Vista) go to Computer>Blackberry (pictures stored in device memory or memory card? Will show up as Blackberry 1 and Blackberry 2) >open which ever has pictures> click picture> click edit> Click Copy to Folder- the Copy items dialog box appears> click the location you want to store copy> click copy. I don't how the Curve operates, but I hope this helps.
