so now the easiest way is to drag them out of the camera folder of the phone into iphoto
You also could try image capture (in your application folder)

How do you figure? If you look at the current DCF specification(http://www.cipa.jp/english/hyoujunka/kikaku/pdf/DC-009-2010_E.pdf), Apple is violating section 126.96.36.199 where it says:
188.8.131.52 Playback scope
A reader shall detect the directories on a DCF medium, and shall display the files in them according to the specifications in 6.2. No specification is made regarding the playback of other directories, except that if they exist, they shall not hinder the displaying of images located in DCF directories.
Apple needs to fix this bug, not Android.

I stand corrected. The linked post above references an issue where iPhoto only locates the files if no other directories besides DCIM exist in the sdcard filesystem. I am going to test renaming that directory and letting iPhoto read it again. I will report back later.

Even with the directory named /DCIM/100ANDRO/, iPhoto still does not recognize the pictures in the directory. It seems that both Apple and Android are violating the specification. Neither is terribly shocking. :-)

This bug consists of two android-related problems:
- the location where android's camera stores its photos is not the standard one;
- the name format that android's camera uses for its photos its also not the standard one!
You can check this for yourself, and vote for the problem to be solved, at android support here:
According to the page above,your choices are:
-waiting for google to solve it (and you can speed them up by voting);
-modifying Iphoto at your own risks;
-buying (or compile yourself, seems difficult) the fixed ''Camera dcim' app at the android market that one of the folks there created.
I voted, because I think this is google's problem, not mine! Why to spend time or money on this?

I just ran into this bug today. Until today sometime after 1:40PM PST, I could upload photos to iPhoto without a problem using my Android. Since then I've been trying to upload more photos and iPhoto doesn't see them.
Is this the same bug or something else?
