I'm New to Macbook Pro.


How do I transfer photos from iPhoto on photo stream to an external drive?

I have just upgraded to iphone 5 and want to reset my old iphone  3 but do not want to lose photos.

MacBook Pro, iOS 6.1.1

    Welcome to the Apple Community.


    Select them in iPhoto and drag them to a folder on your external drive.

    If you have iPhoto on your MBP setup to automatically import photos into the iPhoto library in the iPhoto/Photo Stream preference pane they will be imported into the library and not be deleted from the library if you delete them from the Photo Stream.


    Then follow WC's suggestion.
