How do I transfer photo albums from iPhone to my Mac?

Asked by Dr_C (14132points) October 25th, 2010

I recently had to purchase a new macbook pro due to the untimely demise of the previous version. I didn’t have a recent back-up, and the external that had my back-up also turned out to be broken so getting the files off of it is not do-able, even through data retrieval services.

I transferred all my music from my iphone to itunes through senuti, and have transferred all my pictured via iphoto, but what I want to transfer are the actual photo albums. Does anyone know how to do this? is there any way to do this without third party software?

Ehh… this is a pretty tricky thing to do. As I recall, iPhoto should be able to sync your albums as well as your photos, but from what you’re saying it’s not doing it. Personally I would jailbreak my iPhone and pull the files off that way. I know that’s not the ideal solution, but at least it would work!

Actually, the sync is one way, that means you sync data from mac to iPhone. To transfer the whole photo albums, you can use iPhoto, Image Capture, Aperture, FonePaw iOS Transfer, etc. to transfer photos.
