Thread: Where are photos located?

  1. #1
    Default Where are photos located?
    iPhoto crashes when I try to access my iphone via File --> Import

    How can I get my pics off my phone? I'm very comfortable with scp. Where are the photos I take with my iphone camera located on the iphone?

    Thanks!

    All digital camera's have a DCIM folder with the folders inside named 100THEIRBRAND.

    I was wondering why it was in /private/var/... instead of just /var/...

    the /var directory is just a symbolic link...not really a directory. if i recall correctly, it links to /private/var...so it's really the same thing

    as far as unix paths...i haven't yet begun to understand all of the hows and whys behind the many redundancies...

    Hey guys,

    Im looking under /private/var/root/Media/ and theres no addition folders.
    Ive also tried searching under /private/var/mobile/media/photos, but theres nothing there either.

    Because ive been using snapture, could it be under a different directory??

    any helps appreciated.
