HOW TO: Download pictures OFF of your iPhone
Iam sure some of you already know, but for the rest of you who are wondering, how do i get these pictures off my iphone without having to email them to myself? Here are some programs that can do it.
1. Scanner and Camera Wizard (FREE)
This program came with my Dell Laptop, and is probably a built in function of Windows XP Pro (im not sure about home or vista). Its easy as cake, dock your iphone, click on the Scanner and Camera Wizard, it will detect your iphone and your on your way.
2. Microsoft Picture It! (Free - Price Varies)
This program is not free but usually comes with most emachines and other pre-built computers already installed. Check your mom and pops new computer , its probably on there same as above , plug in, but when you open picture it, you will need to go to file and import, your iphone will be a "device" and its next next finish from there.
3. Windows Photo Gallery (Windows Vista ONLY) (Free)
This program is the replacement program for most of microsoft digital imaging software. This program is similar to the two above and comes stock with Windows Vista. Similar to Microsoft Picture it, you can import photos from your iphone with a push of a button.
If you know of any more programs that can do this, free being the best, post below! What do you use?

I do not see my IPhone listed under the devices to chose from in Picasa2??? Why is it not visible? I have jailbreaked my phone put apps, ringtones, movies, and such but everytime I connect it to my computer is it suppose to ask you that a new hardware device is found? WTF thought I already did? Also everytime I open ITunes I get a message saying it is corrupt but yet I have uninstalled quicktime and itunes 3 times now redownloaded/installed and it still does not work? Please of god help me. I want to get these 250 pictures off of my phone and I'm not going to email everyone seperately that's insane.

I did try using those other programs.. None of them showed my IPhone as a device to import from. so I used Iphonebrowser and downloaded them each individually because you can't seem to select more than one file at a time to download... hopefully that will be changed in an updated version.
I can not get my IPhone to smoothly connect into one of the programs? everytime I dock my iphone it says there's new hardware found and it asks for a driver and I can't seem to find anything on this forums (tried searching for 2 hours) about this issue. Do you know what's the deal?

I'm wondering how to upload pictures to the photo album using something like ibrickr. I use itunes at home to sync different folders. But what if I want to add a pick from a different computer at work. I can't seem to find the folder that they are located in. I know where the photos taken with the phone are located but I can't seem to find the other photos...

cuz no program can recognize my phone for some odd reason, and when i try something, that screen "new hardware found" crap comes up.

Basically when I connect my phone - New Hardware Found Digital Still Camera.
And then it asks to put in my xp cd, I don't have mine anymore, so i cant get it to show up in My Computer or as a device in anything you listed.
IF ANYBODY knows how to get that driver called "digital still camera" hook me up = ] thanks.

when i hook up my iphone to my computer, my computer detects iphone camera and display it as an icon. I just double click on it, a folder is opened and all images that i captured before shownd in that folder. I just drag it to my computer. That's it. (My computer has a driver for iphone camera, so it's installed automatically when i hook my iphone up, just use window update to update your driver database)

What if my phone is not being recognized by my PC, that means no Ibrick, no itunes.......and i tried sending by mail.....but something doen't work with the outgoing mail server......the only way to communicate with my iphone is by winSCP........so to sum it up...
How can I save camera roll pic's into my PC with winSCP?
Is there a folder where these pics are saved? because i cant find it:S

If you can't import photos from your iPhone to your computer (whether Mac of PC), you might want to check to see if you have any photos in the camera roll on your iPhone that did not originate from the iPhone camera (i.e. someone emailed you, taken on another camera, received from your computer, copied from the internet, etc.). If you do then Apple disables your ability to import or sync ANY photos contained on your iPhone until the non-originating photos are removed from the iPhone camera roll. The only work around is to email those non-originating pictures to yourself and then delete them to re-enable your ability to import/sync the remaining photos. I know it's a pain. Of course you could let Apple know how unsatisfactory this is at: http://www.apple.com/feedback

All I have to say is thank you, I have tried for months and looked on web page after web page on trying to figure out why my computer all of a sudden would not import my photos off of my iphone. I found my answer i had a few pictures saved from emails and text, so i just emailed them to myself, deleted the not original photos off of my phone, unplugged and then plugged my phone back in to the computer and it worked.

When I plug my phone into pc, it shows up in 'my computer' as [phonename]digital camera and a couple of left clics later, I'm at the dcim/100apple folder. I cannot 'cut' but I can 'copy' any or all image files and paste them to anywhere I need to. Or did I miss something? I hope this isn't completely off the wall. Oh yeah, notice: Atlantis is syncing? Oh, I see you are using xp, my bad...7 and vista have the drivers default. Nevermind.
