    All photos transferred from your computer via the iTunes sync process - selected under the Photos tab for your iPhone sync preferences with iTunes should remain on your computer.

    Photos transferred from your computer are stored in your iPhone's Photo Library and are not included with your iPhone's backup since there is no reason for it.

    Photos in your iPhone's Camera Roll are included with your iPhone's backup. Although photos in the Camera Roll are included with your iPhone's backup which is updated by iTunes as the first step during the iTunes sync process, photos in the Camera Roll can and should be imported by your computer as with any other digital camera.

    Thanks for your prompted respond.

    Actualy I just brought my new iPhone recently. Till todate still haven't download iTunes application into my computer, mean that I never do any iTunes sync before. The problem now is the photos that I taken was deleted directly from iPhones. I believe it was too late now for me to do any iTunes sync to backup photos from iPhone to computer.

    I would like to know is there any application that can help to retrieve those deleted photos from my iPhone? Or can iPhone act like a pc allow to restore / reverse back-to-date function?

    Based on your post above, you cannot recover the photos, they are gone forever. You need to start using iTunes right a way and start to back up your data and photos so you don't have this happen again.

    I am surprised you even got this far, with each iPhone I had to get it working via iTunes first.

    You're welcome.

    Photos in your iPhone's Camera Roll (which is where photos captured/taken with your iPhone are saved) are NOT included or touched with the iTunes sync process. Photos in the Camera Roll cannot be deleted from the Camera Roll by syncing with iTunes alone - this is not possible.

    Regardless, if you did not import the photos from the Camera Roll with your computer as designed and intended and as with any other digital camera, the photos are gone. There is no solution.

    There is no "solution". If you didn't sync them, they are gone.
