I am planning on getting rid of my iPhone soon. I have alot of picture stored for caller ID however they're no longer in any of my albums.
Where does the iPhone store picture IDs?
I found one path: private/var/media/photos/thumbs
however on my phone in the var directory there is no media directory.
I would REALLY like to save these pictures.
Can someone help please?

Pictures are stored under iTunes_Control, the same as Videos and Music. However, Contacts pictures are stored in mobile/Library/ in a sqlite database. They would need to be extracted from that database. I can give you the full path when I get home this eve.Get "iPod & iTunes for Dummies", it'll change your life.

To extract them, you'd need to install Sql on your PC, add the db to your sql management list, and manually extract each. This can be done either through a dedicated sql manager, or PHPAdmin. You can get either as a free download. I usually use versiontracker.com for these sorts of things. Have you used Sql before?Get "iPod & iTunes for Dummies", it'll change your life.

I have absolutely no experience with SQL and it sounds a little intimidating
If I can't manage I will post back up!
I found the file and retrieved it.
I also am now under the impression PHPAdmin is not a windows based program. Is this true?
If this is the case do you have a recommendation on what program I can use to extract my pictures?
Thank you for all the help.
I don't know why it merged that post but the post prior to this has questions in it
