Re: Copy photos from iPhone 4 to computer

I use PC, so I can explain how to do it on a Windows machine. If you plug your iPhone up to the computer you'll see it show up as a camera or portable device (under the name of your iPhone) in My Computer (or just 'Computer' if your using Vista or Windows 7). Double clicking on the device should show up a folder called DCIM, and finally an internal folder that holds your iPhone pictures. HIghlighting and dragging to desktop or a folder on your computer transfers them.

Yes, you can easily copy photos and videos taken with the phone off:

Plug in your phone, and start Windows Photo Gallery. Go to the File menu and choose import. Choose your iPhone and it will do the rest. They come up in your Pictures directory by default. Just to be clear, iTunes does not do this on Windows.

hi friend When you plug the iphone into your computer, your computer should detect a new removable drive. Browse to that new drive in Windows explorer and you will see your photos in there. its also depend that what you are using PC aur MAC

Well I remember seeing a youtube video saying that it’s because itunes blocked some data when you sync your apple products, so you may try to change some settings to make them unhidden. Unfortunately I don’t have that video right now. but you can google your question “how to transfer photos from iphone to pc” to find that video. Oh and remember to choose "video" tab on the left side to screen the search results, it will help a lot to find the more exact answers.

Connect your iPhone to the computer. Click on my computer; "....'s iPhone" must be written below other devices click on it, and you have direct access to the photos..

You may use Photo Gallery from Windows Lives on PC which you can download at the Windows Start menu.
If you are using Mac, you can manually connect them via USB.
Or you can do it wirelessly on your iPhone by switch ON the Photo Stream under iCloud selection.
