    This, should be free and secure, which it's not.
    What makes you say that? iCloud, for small numbers of files, should work. Apple provides 5GB of free iCloud storage, which should allow a sync of Photos between iPhone and Mac. And if you need more, iCloud is fairly inexpensive. As for secure, iCloud is one of the more secure systems, using 2FA to gain access. So, for small needs, it is free and secure. For larger needs, it's inexpensive and secure.

    And did Finder not work? If it didn't, what did you do and what did it do? You still haven't told us what you have tried and what happened. We're in a bit of the same position as a doctor to whom you only say "It hurts," without saying what "it" is nor what you mean by "hurts." Can't do much with nothing.

    This is good but so there is no way to add photos from iMac to iPhone using only Apple software?


    Really???

    How about this???:
    Part 1: Transfer photos from Mac to iPhone with iTunes
    4 Ways to Transfer Photos from Mac to iPhone with/without iTunes- dr.fone

    Seems like default Mac OSX Apple software ca do what you want to do unless I have misunderstood something.

    Maybe check out the site and maybe the method will work for you.

    I understand what you are getting at, I really do.

    5GB of space and pay for more? I like Apple I really do which is why I spent thousands of dollars and feel I should be able to move my photos from my iMac to my iPhone without having to pay for iCloud service or 3rd party software services to do so, period.

    As for the rest, already tried it.

    Hey! You're ruining it for me. Give me some time to look threw your links. Although I like to think of myself as smart, I am slow at reading links. lol

    If you go into Photos on your Mac, do you have the option to add the photos you want to share to "My Photo Stream"? Depends on the quality and quantity, it may take some time to sync between devices, so maybe just try one at first, to see when/if it shows up?

    Maybe I missed it when I read the thread earlier but could you explain what methods you have already tried (including the steps)? I know you have a good bit of experience with Macs but it's easy to skip steps sometimes.

    I once spent about two hours attempting to connect several mis to my G5 before I realized that the computer had a line level input (which would not work without an adapter).

    Gheese, I almost forgot the most obvious and simple method using one of Apple's macOS X default applications: Image Capture

    Transfer images in Image Capture on Mac
    Transfer images in Image Capture on Mac - Apple Support

    That should give you multiple choices of what to use and how to do the photo transfer you are wanting to do. And with all native Apple applications.

As I said, I use iCloud, so that function is disabled for me.
    Could he have iCloud enabled? Not much to go on as he does not give details.

    Thanks. I second that suggestion, it works as long as both devices are in close proximity and on the same network. I use that method often and it has always worked well.
