I am looking for a software app that will run on a Mac (or a PC) that will connect with an iphone and that
will allow the transfer of pictures from the iphone to the mac. (I am purposely not using with word SYNCH...I want only to transfer). These are NOT pictures taken with the
iphone camera...they were taken by a digital camera, put on the Mac, and then transferred to the iphone.

The problem seems to be, and I am not a 'itunes' user, that attempting to resynch with itunes will wipe
out the pics in the camera. This was verified by speaking with two apple help desk reps. Something about
the pics are stored in a different area on the iphone, than the photos taken by the iphone, and
attempting to use itunes/iphoto will by default, first erase the nvram where the pics are stored.

So, I am looking for a software app, preferably 'freeware', that will download the pictures in their best
resolution, from the iphone to the mac. Any pointers are greatly appreciated...
Thanks
John

Picassa is free and works great. It is what I use on my work PC.

I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.

Does Picassa download the pictures on the iphone (Not the pics in photo roll) in the highest resolution possible (e.g. what ever resolution the iphone has them in)????

Actually only one s - Picasa

Don't know about pics not in the photoroll - I only have pics taken with my iPhone.

I would think you'd be able to get those pics off your phone by the same method you put them there - assume drag and drop?

It's free, so it's def worth a try.



(And yes, I only sync my iPhone with my Mac - but take a lot of jobsite pics for work that I then download at work to my Win machine there.

Picasa works great - keeps the resolution, file number/naming convention and also maintains the sequence as shot on the iPhone.)

I imagine the default Image Capture should do the job itself? Launch that and see what pictures it sees on the iPhone, I can't imagine it knows/cares about the Photo Roll. Everytime I plug my iPhone to the Mac, I get Image Capture loading and showing me thumbnails of all the pictures on the iPhone..

The default resolution of pictures taken on the iPhone is 1600x1200..

Have you considered using iWeb. Create a Mobileme account, then upload your images via an email to the iWeb page.
