I guess what I mean is - what should the specific settings be in iTunes and/or iPhoto so that when I sync my iPhone, all new photos from my iphone get backed up in iphoto, and then they come off my phone.
Any new photos backed up in iphoto that I want to keep on my phone, I could then add them to this created folder in iphoto and sync again to get them back on my phone.
I just don't want tons of photos on my iphone at all times - just selected ones after I've done a sync. The rest I want on my computer.
Again, thank you for any help possible!
ok i think i know how to help;
first sync up your iphone to iphoto and when it asks if you want to keep or delete photos, click the delete.
then you will have no photos on your iphone. (if you still have some delete the rest off of your iphone because they are already synced to your mac, right?)
second, in itunes sync iphone, go to the photos tab and check the sync photos to tab (select from iphoto)
then check "selected albums" under that. after that choose that "special" folder you made i believe it was called iphone photos. now that will be the only photos that sync.
i hope this helps
