"To clarify: how do I do this "on the phone" without being tethered to iTunes? "
Photo library consist of photos synced to iphone from your computer, while Camera Roll is temporary storage for photos taken/saved from iphone ( until they can be imported to your computer, where you can organize them and sync whatever you like back to iphone).
You import them to your computer as you would from any other digital camera, then you select them to sync ( under the photos tab in itunes), and then you sync them to your iphone.
So I have to:
1) Plug in the iPhone
2) Copy files from the iPhone to "My Pictures" via Explorer
3) Setup iTunes to sync "My Pictures" to Photo Library
4) Press "Sync" or plug/unplug the iPhone to trigger the sync
Seems roundabout. Is there a way to manage pictures *on the phone* without tethering?
" Is there a way to manage pictures on the phone without tethering?"
Have a look at the manual:
The iphone is not intended to be an external drive, it mirrors you computer as set by syncing preferences.
Thanks for the prompt reply:

LAME. Oh well - it's a minor inconvenience.
Hey Apple: It would be awesome to be able to sift through photos on the device - just tap a photo and say "save to library, save to library, delete this, save this" - after all the first place I'm reviewing the photos is on the phone.
The idea is photos in the Camera Roll should be imported by your computer as with any other digital camera. Do you leave photos captured by any other digital camera on the camera - the photos captured by the camera are not imported by your computer?
Although photos in the Camera Roll are included with your iPhone's backup, it isn't a good idea to depend on that alone for these photos. If you restore your iPhone with iTunes if wanted or needed and there is a problem with your iPhone's backup in regards to this data and these photos were not imported by your computer as with any other digital camera, guess what?
This used to work !!.. I have found that the iphone 4 has stopped showing up on Explorer (in Vista) and I have run through the apparent fix which is to uninstall the Apple drivers. This solves the problem of explorer however also creates another problem in that iTunes no longer recognises the phone and hence you have to uninstall and reinstall iTunes which to say the least is a pain in the you know what....
Reinstalling iTunes reintroduces the problem of the phone not being seen by Explorer.
Any further suggestions would be appreciated...

I just discovered that if I use the original cable from apple that was shipped with my iphone the one that the connector is smaller and there is no hooks my windows 7 can see it on the explorer and Picasa can import the pictures. If I Use the cable I had before from my Ipod that the connector is lager I can not be seeing.
