Card readers.  Either built in or connected -- generally via USB.

I have not tried Wifi. I find the card readers work best for me. Does your laptop have an internal SD card reader?

How do people get images onto a laptop and into processing software? WiFi?

 

Are you talking RAW or jpegs?

I use the card reader built into my Mac mini, the Lightning to SD Card Adapter for my iPhone, or the USB-C to SD Card Adapter for my iPad Pro 11". Occasionally I'll use Leica FOTOs to move exposures to the iPhone or iPad and then transfer them via AirDrop to the Mac. But the card reader is both more reliable and FAR faster.

I do both, card reader to my MacBook. Or Fotos app / wifi to my iPad. DNGs most of the time, then processed in Lightroom on either. Sometimes OOC B&W jpegs to iPad to post immediately.

Wifi is far too slow with RAW files.  A fast card and fast card reader is the way to go for those.

I do DNG files exclusively. Leica FOTOs is horrifically slow with transfers but I usually only do that once in a bit. AirDrop from iPhone to Mac is quite fast (about 40x faster than Leica FOTOs) for raw files. Of course, a USB-C or built in card reader is 100-1000x faster than that so any large movement of files happens that way. :D

Always a card reader, my Asus has one built in, otherwise I have a good Kingston I use on my older laptop or with Compact Flash cards my Nikon uses. Tried Fotos to phone to computer, card readers as said before are for faster.
