    the program FileJuicer works for MacOSX including Leopard to convert these file types to a directory with the files in them.

    sinister, this method is not to recover Camera Roll pictures, but rather your picture library that you sync from iTunes.

    Default ppm conversion
    I have an IPOD gen 5 which has pictures that I want to access.
    I used your converter and now have the files as ppm, but still can't open them. I am using Vista, and would like to batch save them as Jpeg, can someone tell me how to do this.

    Exclamation ithmb conversion
    I used the process described here to get the ithmb files off my iPhone and the process worked just fine. I was surprised at the results in that I didn’t get all the files I was expecting though.
    When I first got my phone, I would take pictures of my contacts and attach them to their entry in Contacts. Those are the pictures I’m looking for. Does anyone know if they are located someplace else on the phone? Now I’ve learned to simply copy those pictures from the phone to my PC right away and there’s no problem. But I need the pictures I took before which I didn’t save to my PC. Surely they must be somewhere. Help!!!

    So you have image files in .thmb format and don’t know how to open them?
    No worries, this guide will walk your through the process. You will have to download the image\picture files of your iPhone\iPodTouch before you can convert them. Use a program like iPhoneBrowser to browse to the pictures on your idevice, use iThmbConv to c0nvert the files as per the steps listed below and alternatively use XnView for viewing and batch conversions.

    This utilities are for Windows Only!!
    Step 1

    Locate the files in:
    /var/root/Media/Photos/

    and

    /var/root/Media/Photos/Thumbs
    Step 2

    Copy all five files and the program to:
    Ctmp
    (Note: the directory is not important, but this is for simplicity.)
    Step 3

    Click Start > Run.
    Type “cmd” and hit enter.
    This will bring up the command prompt.
    Step 4

    Now you need to navigate to the folder that you downloaded the five files at.
    Type “cd ctmp” and hit enter.
    Step 5

    Now type “iThmbConv.exe”
    There will be a list of examples on how to use the program.
    Step 6

    Type “iThmbConv ctmp\F3008_1.ithmb” and hit enter.
    Note: be sure that this file is the largest one you downloaded, if it isn’t, choose the one that is.
    Step 7

    You will now have a bunch of files in your tmp directory that have a .ppm extension.
    You can open these files using Photoshop and save them as you want.
    You could even use a batch to convert them all at one time.

    XnView can view .ppm files, as well as batch convert them to other types.
    Step 8

    Simply change the file extension from .iThmb to .jpg, then your good to go!

    You can try ImageZipper on iThmb Converter, Image Format Converter .
    ImageZipper can convert multiple .ithmb images between other image fomats, such as JPEG, PNG, GIF etc. in a batch conversion.
