I had purchased a new macbook and I am trying to get the photos that are in the Photo Library folder on my iphone. The apps that are avaiable are only able to see the camera roll photos.

    did you set up the itunes for syncing photos?

     

    when you plug in iphone go to its photo tab in itunes and make sure you choose iphoto for syncing.

    I would but these pictures are not saved on the new computer and syncing it would clear off every thing. I need to know how to get the photos out of the album titled "Photo Library" all the apps and programs I have googled are only able to access the pictures in the camera roll.

    The app PhotoSync will send pictures from Photo Library (as well as Camera Roll) to your computer if they are on the same wireless network.

    Photos transferred from your computer via the iTunes sync/transfer process which are photos stored in the Photo Library on your iPhone are optimized for viewing on your iPhone as part of the iTunes sync/transfer process - the original resolution of these photos is reduced. This is why transferring these photos in the opposite direction is not supported.

     

    All photos transferred from your computer to your iPhone should remain on your computer. These photos can be transferred from your old computer to your new computer along with all other important data - documents, etc.

     

    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.

    You're welcome.  As Allan mentioned, the original resolution might not be the same, but at least they're not lost.

    The original resolution will not be the same. That is the optimization part that occurs as the first step when transferring photos.
