Question:

Question: How can I export the photo albums from my iPhone to folders on my Mac?

I love to organize my photos as albums on my iOS devices, but I keep them organized by folders on the Mac, so that other users with Windows PCs can view these shared folders too at my house.


I would love to export the photos from my iPhone/iPad to my Mac, with the albums created on the iOS to specific folders on my Mac.


Can I do that automatically?


Thanks in advance.

MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.7.1)

C. Cruz was spot-on 1 year ago and remains so - I just did this using Phone View ( v 2.8.4 ) - and it could not have been easier - just like exporting/copying files in any other program - a cinch for even any barely-seasoned Mac user


(there may be other applications that do same now, but when P View first came out, they were the one and only, and at the time it was a gods-send (yes, godS for you BSG frackin' fans...) so my loyalty stays with them


plus, you can get at other individual folders/files = copy/export specific voice mails, texts, etc - So Simple - just keep your OS AND your version of PhoneView up to date and should be as simple as it just was for me...

Unfortunately syncing albums created on an iOS device back to a computer is not possible via iPhoto.


There might be some 3rd party software which will let you do this. PhoneView comes to mind. I believe it allows you to view your iOS photos by album. You could select an album and then copy those photos into a folder for that album. Repeat for each album.
