    LIke I said, I'm new to this.  I realize now that iTunes doesn't store photos.  but apparently that's where I "sync" my PC to my iPhone.  I would like to delete photos I inadvertently downloaded to my iPhone 4S from my PC, but not sure how to do it.  I'd like them to stay on my PC, but not take up space on my iPhone.

    Do you mean how do you get photos from your computer onto your iPhone by syncing with iTunes? Or you have already synced photos to your iPhone but don't know how to find/view them on the phone?

    You simply do not select them to sync, then sync.

     

    The iphone will only contain that which you select to sync.

     

    Open itunes, connect iphone, got each tab and select what you want, sync.

     

    You can click Support at the top of this page, then manuals, for a copy of the manual.

    If the photos were synced from your PC, then you have to delete them through iTunes.

    What I have is a folder on my computer for the photos I want synced on my iPhone and iPad. When I want to change/delete the synced photos I have to remove them from that folder on my PC.

     

    What you need to do is connect your iPhone to your computer, open iTunes, click on the iPhone button near the top of the iTunes screen. You then click on PHOTOS and if you wish all the synced photos removed, just uncheck where it says SYNC PHOTOS FROM. Then re-sync the iPhone. iTunes will remove all the photos.

    Thanks swandy.  That all makes sense.  I'm not sure how I selectively download photos from the special folder like you have set up.  Is there a way to selectively download photos from a specific folder from the PC to the iPhone?  I've only synced once and screwed that up by downloading every photo on my PC.  I'm sure that's occupying a lot of space on my iPhone.

    talex5 when you connect your iphone to the PC you can go to my computer, under Other you have to see your device, double click there are your photos just copy them and paste in your PC, than sync your iphone using itunes like swandy told you.

    I just did this but itunes still shows photos are in memory. Memory being the bar along the bottom of the screen which shows available space.
