I did a Iphone sync this morning and can't figure out where the Camera Roll photos went on my computer. "Sync photos from Iphone" is checked in the Itunes/Photo tab.
I see "George's Iphone" in folder list in Iphoto but the folder is empty.

MacBookPro, Mac OS X (10.5.7), Safari 4.0.1 Airport Extreme Cable Modem

    They should go directly into iPhoto and should appear in your actual photo library and under the 'Last Roll'

    thanks. They are not going in automatically when i sync. I have to go to Iphoto and click "import". Am I missing a setting?

    There is no setting in iTunes to automatically import photos from the iPhone's Camera Roll. Photos in the iPhone's Camera Roll are not included with the iTunes sync process except for being included with the iPhone's backup which is updated by iTunes as the first step during the iTunes sync process.

    iPhoto includes an option to launch automatically when a digital camera is connected to your Mac if not already launched when doing so (the iPhone is also detected as a digital camera when connected to a computer when there are photos in the Camera Roll), but iPhoto does not include an option to automatically import photos from a digital camera when connected including when the iPhone is connected when there are photos in the Camera Roll. Importing photos from a digital camera must be manually selected.

    thanks. My system does exactly what you described. I will just import manually in to Iphoto.

    Hi I'm having exactly the same problem - after having to change my iphone due to technical problems. I can't find any of the photos I took on my old phone even though everything had been linked to PC first. I'm gutted - PLEASE tell me if there's a way I can retrieve them or find them from anywhere!
