how to unload / import your photos from your iphone onto your pc

if you have a passlock on your phone, take it off (temporarily) and you can access your photos like any other removable storage (e.g. a flash memory stick or camera).

there is an awesome way to have windows automatically import your photos from your iphone, as if it was a camera! first, plug your iphone into your pc (this will work with a removable flash memory card like SD or CompactFlash memory card into the associated reader). in the AutoPlay dialog box, click "Import pictures and videos using windows." you can click "Import Settings" in the "Import Pictures and Videos" dialog box, to change the location of the folder placement and a couple of tagging options. from then on, your pc will automatically prompt you to take the pictures off of your phone. you can even delete the imported photos, easily (click erase after importing) and it will only import the photos that haven't previously been imported. 

you're welcome, iphone users. i didn't even charge you $30.

btw, grammatically inclined folk, was that the proper use of "onto"? tricky little word...

  2. Ohhh thanks for the tip! I don't use an iPhone myself, but I get a lot of customers who ask me how to do this, and now I can finally be useful to them! Thanks again! Hope you've been well.
