Have you ever imported/transferred photos from a digital camera to your computer?
If so, the process is the same. When the iPhone includes photos captured by the iPhone, it is also detected as a digital camera when connected to your computer and since you have a Mac, you have two options available.
iLife has been included with all new Macs for some time and since you have an iMac, you should have an iLife version included that was pre-installed on your Mac along with OS X. iLife includes iPhoto which is similar to iTunes for storing photos on a Mac. If a version of iLife was not included with your purchase or you removed the applications including iPhoto, OS X includes an application called Image Capture which is available in your applications folder. Unless you removed this application, you can use Image Capture for this purpose if you don't have iPhoto available but if you have both, I prefer using iPhoto for this purpose.
With your iPhone connected to your computer, launch iPhoto if available and if not, launch the Image Capture application.
The process with either one should be easy to figure out but if you need some specific instructions, just ask. PowerBook G4 17-inch/1.67GHz/2GB RAM, Mac OS X (10.5.1), 7200rpm-100GB HD, iPod w/Video 30GB, iPhone 8GB
Currently Being ModeratedJan 2, 2008 12:31 AM (in response to mhornet18)I have windows XP and my Iphone doesn't show up at all. Is there something I am doing wrong? I would like to transfer my pictures to my computer without having to email them.
