    Question Getting photos from Iphone 4G onto MacBook Air
    Hi.

    I added photos from my Iphone some time ago onto my old computer, but selected the option of keeping the photos in my Iphone. Now I want to upload the photos again but I don't seem to be able to do it. Also I don't seem to be able to delete the photos from the Iphone.

    So what I would like to do is: Transfer the photos from my Iphone to my Mac, and then delete them so I'll finally have some space on my phone.

    If anyone knows about this stuff, help would be very much appreciated!

    In APplications, look for Image Capture. Connect the iPhone by USB cable, open Image Capture, copy down the files you want, then delete them from the iPhone.

    Use Finder, go to the Applications folder. In there is Image Capture. Run that application with the iPhone connected by USB cable and it will let you see all the images on the iPhone and select what you want to bring to your Mac. It will also let you decide where to put them and if you want to delete them from the iPhone after capturing them to your Mac.

    iPhoto has nothing to do with it. Nothing to download from anywhere.

    I see what you mean now.

    But I can only see the photos in the Camera Roll folder on my iphone. But not on the Photo Library folder. Maybe I just have to go talk to some people at the Apple store.
