    If you use iPhoto on your Mac for importing photos from a digital camera and for photo storage and management, you can use iPhoto for importing photos and video captured by your iPhone. Or you can use the Image Capture application for the import, which is located in your Applications folder.

    I do see that you have a Mac, but incase you were using a PC for your desktop or something you can plug the phone in and go into my computer, then the iPhone shows up as one of the detachable drives. Click on it, there are 2 files in there. 100 and 999. Click both of those and your pictures are in there. Copy and paste or drag from the folder to your desktop or into a folder on your computer. However... to re-upload them you need to file them in the pictures folder in iTunes to upload them back to the phone. It wont let you drag pictures back into the folder once you copy them out.
