photos on iPhone
I installed a copy of Mountain Lion on my macbook pro thinking that I had a good time capsule backup. The backup was corrupt. The only thing I want to try to recover are the 7600 photos I had in iPhoto. Luckily i have them on my IPhone and iPad. I am trying to find a way to get them back on to my MacBook. Help.

I am confused. Installing Mountain Lion has no effect on your iPhoto library, so all your photos should still be there.

Is there a largish chunk of this story that you've left out?

Yes. I neglected to say that i erased my drive first because I wanted to start fresh.

Why don't you plug in your iPhone/iPad to your Mac, point iPhoto at it and suck the images back onto the Mac?

What's preventing you from doing this?

I have tried that and it does not show that there are photos on the iPad

And you can see the photos on the iPad through the camera roll?

So following iOS: Importing personal photos and videos from iOS devices to your computer you see nothing in iPhoto when the iPad is connected?

Give iExplorer a go. Let's you see parts of the file system so you can copy the photos off
