Default Transfering screenshots via usb cable?

Since the new 3ds needs to have a screwdrive to open the backplate to then take off the micro sd, it will wear down the screw holes eventually, and i don't want that. Is there any way i can transfer the pictures/screenshots through an usb cable i got for it?

Go here: http://www.nintendo.com/3ds/new-nintendo-3ds/ and look at the part where it says: easy data sharing.

It must be my sad Google skills, but I took me quite a while to figure out what Easy Data Sharing is.

What it is and how it works can be found here, on the webiste of Nintendo Australia.

I think it's a great way to transfer images from the N3DS to a PC and post them on Tumblr (or whatever). Image Share is nice, but you can only upload one image at a time. So especially for sharing multiple images at once, like patterns in Animal Crossing New Leaf this is great.
