I'm looking to see if anyone know how I can upload photos that I have on my PC to my iPhone.

Has anyone done this? Is this even possible?

    Farmdwg,

    Try following instructions below.

    Set photos to sync

    You can sync iPhone with photos in iPhoto 4.0.3 or later on a Mac, or Photoshop Album 2.0 or later or Photoshop Elements 3.0 or later on a PC. Or you can sync with any folder on your computer that contains images.

    Click the Photos tab and select "Sync photos from:"
    From the pop-up menu, do one of the following:
    If your using a Mac, choose iPhoto or your Pictures folder.
    If you're using a PC, choose Photoshop Album, Photoshop Elements, or your My Pictures folder.
    Choose Folder, then choose any folder on your computer that has images inside.
    Choose "All photos," or choose "Selected folders" or "Selected albums" and choose the folders or albums you want to sync.

    For other Syncing info Check out this article:

    The easiest way to sync photos to the iphone or ipod on a pc is to sync them from a particular folder.

    As a test, create a new folder on your desktop.

    Put 3-4 photos in the folder. Use copy and past instead of dragging the photo. That way your not moving your original photo.

    Now, open itunes and connect up the iphone.

    when you get the summary page, click on the Photos tab at the top.

    Check the box that says "Sync Photos from:" and set the drop down to "Choose Folder..."

    A Browse for Folder window comes up.

    Navigate to desktop/iPhone folder and highlight it.

    Click ok at the bottom of the window.

    Now click apply at the bottom right of the itunes window.

    If all goes well, the photos that you put in that folder will be transfered to your iphone.

    Hope this helps.

    iTunes and possibly the iPhone photo software is sensitive to the name of the photo files. Rename them without spaces or punctuation other than "_" underscore.

    Found another way to do it from the amazing guys at apple. If ur using a pc all that you have to use is a thumb drive or a flash drive and save the photos to that. Then when ur in itunes select that file and upload it to ur iphone. It worked great for me
