Hi,

yesterday I've got my new MacBook Air and I just want to transfer the photos from my iPhone to this.

With "Preview" I'm able to transfer photos directly from the iPhone standard photo folder to the Mac.

But I created different folders with photos on my iPhone and I don't know how to transfer them onto my Mac.

Can anyone help me please?

Thanks,
chris1302

MacBook Air, Mac OS X (10.6.5), iOS 4.2.1

    The sync process for photos from your computer is a one way transfer process only - from your computer to your iPhone.

    Photos transferred from your computer to your iPhone are optimized for viewing on your iPhone - the original resolution of these photos is reduced which is why transferring these photos in the opposite direction is not supported. These photos should remain on your computer and can be transferred from an existing computer to a new or different computer along with any other important data that you need or want to access on the new computer.

    Photos in the Camera Roll can be imported by your computer as with any other digital camera.

    There are some 3rd party paid utilities that provide for transferring these photos in the opposite direction, but the original resolution of these photos will be lost in the process.

    Much better to transfer the photos from your existing computer to your new computer along with your iTunes library, your documents, and any other important data that you will need or want to access on your new computer.
