You can use photostream via iCloud. Make sure you activate photostream on the mac and iphone in the iCloud settings and then open iPhoto and go to preferences and set the options for photostream.

If you don't meet the requirements to use Photostream, you can try this.
There is an app in the iTunes Store called Airdrive HD and there is an iPhone version. It is a free app. You can import your photos into the app from Photos and when you hook the iPhone up to iTunes, if you select the Apps button, Airdrive will show up in the file sharing section at the boittom of the page. You can then select the photos and save them to the computer or at least I could.
Supposedly, you can hook directly to Airdrive via a web browser, but I never figured out how to do that.
This looks even easier. I think you can do it in one step:
You only get 100 copies with the trail version. The full version is $29.99.

Thanks for your suggestions.
I did set up a custom Photostream a while ago and it transfers selected photos directly into Aperture. That would be ideal, but it only sends small versions of the photos. They get scaled down from 8 to 3 MPixel and compressed to lower quality, tiffs are converted to jpg for that. But for further use and archiving the full image would make sense.
Airdrive and touchcopy might be a workaround, but it's easier to stick with the email-to-self method. Sigh...
