How to Transfer Photos from iPhone to Computer
Absolutely any cloud service is very convenient to use for exporting images both from iPhone to computer and vice versa. Let’s consider further steps using the example of the Dropbox service.
When the iPhone photo library appears on the screen, check the boxes next to the images you want, and then select the “Next” button in the upper right corner.
Specify the destination folder where the images will be copied, and then start the synchronization by clicking on the “Download” button.
Wait until the sync icon disappears from the photos. From now on, snapshots in Dropbox.
Perhaps the most convenient way to transfer images from iPhone to computer, since in this case the export of images to the cloud will be fully automatic.
- First you need to check if the photo upload is active on the phone. To do this, open the settings, followed by selecting your Apple ID at the top of the window.
Select “Photo”. In the new window, make sure that you have activated the items “iCloud Music Library”, as well as “My Photo Stream”.
Download and install iCloud for Windows on your computer.
The iCloud Photos folder appears in Windows Explorer. In order for the folder to be replenished with new photos, the program will need to be configured. Click on the arrow icon in the tray to open the list of running applications, right-click on iCloud, and then go to “Open iCloud settings”.
Check the boxes next to iCloud Drive and Photos. To the right of the second item, click on the “Options” button.
In the new window, check the boxes next to iCloud Media Library and My Photo Stream. If necessary, change the default folders on the computer where the images will be uploaded, and then click on the “Finish” button.
Make changes to the program by clicking in the lower right corner on the “Apply” button and close the window.
How to Transfer Photos from iPhone to Computer
First, let’s talk about the standard method for transferring pictures from a phone to a computer. An important condition: iTunes must be installed on the computer (although it is not needed in this case), and the phone is paired with the computer (for this, on the smartphone, at the request of the system, you will need to enter the password code).
- Connect iPhone to computer with USB cable. Wait for the connection to occur and then launch Windows Explorer. The phone will be displayed in the list of connected devices.
Transfer photos from iPhone to computer
Today we will talk about a variety of ways to transfer digital photographs from your phone to your computer. Each of the presented solutions is simple and allows you to quickly cope with the task.
A useful type of application such as a file manager allows you not only to store and run various types of files on your iPhone, but also to quickly access them on your computer. The method is suitable if both the iPhone and the computer are connected to the same Wi-Fi network.
- If you have not yet installed the Documents 6 application on your smartphone, download and install it for free from the App Store.
Start Documents. In the lower left corner, open the “Documents” tab and then the “Photos” folder.
Click on the ellipsis icon next to the image, and then select “Copy”.
An additional window will appear on the screen in which you need to select which Documents folder the image will be copied to, and then complete the transfer. Thus, copy all the images that you want to transfer to your computer.
Now you need to enable Wi-Fi syncing on your phone. To do this, click on the gear icon in the upper left corner, and then open the “Wi-Fi Drive” item.
Set the slider next to “Enable” to the active position, and then pay attention to the URL that appears. it is on it that you will need to go in any web browser on your computer.
When you click on the link on your computer, you need to give permission on your phone to share information.
On the computer itself, a folder will appear where we transferred our picture, and then the photo itself.
If you are not satisfied with the work of iTunes, there are wonderful functional analogs for this program, for example, iTools. This program, unlike the software from Apple, is able to transfer the photos contained on the device to a computer in almost no time.
- Connect iPhone to computer and launch iTools. On the left side of the program window, go to the “Photos” tab.
The center of the window displays all of the images on the iPhone. To transfer images selectively, start selecting each image with one click of the mouse. If you want to transfer all the images to your computer, click on the “Select All” button in the upper part of the window.
Click on the “Export” button and then select “To folder”.
We hope, with our help, you were able to find the best way to transfer images from Apple iPhone or other iOS device to your computer. If you still have questions, ask them in the comments.
Capturing Images (MAC Users)
Once again, I’m surprised at how Apple thought about its OS X operating system. They knew (and this is, damn it, obviously) that people would connect all kinds of image and video capture devices to the MAC.
That is why OS X has a built-in utility called “Image Capture”, with which you can access your photos, even if the device where they are stored is not recognized by the computer as a medium.
With this program, I rewrite captured videos and photos from GoPro cameras and sometimes from iPhone.
STEP 1. Connect iPhone to MAC using USB cable and launch “Image Capture” application.
STEP 2. Select the photos you need to import and click Import. To select multiple photos, hold down the Command button.
How to copy (transfer) photos from iPhone to computer [Instructions]
Hey! I’m sure each of you takes pictures with your phone and takes them often and in large quantities. Well at least I use my iPhone as a camera every day. After all, the phone is always at hand, and the built-in camera has long learned to take decent pictures.
And whatever you photograph, sooner or later all this must be put somewhere. If the free space on your iPhone tends to zero, and the folder with the photos is bloated to an obscene size, I suggest copying the photo from the iPhone to the computer. We will talk about this today.!
Again, THERE IS NO SINGLE METHOD to copy iPhone photos. There are quite a few ways that your photos can be transferred to your computer’s hard drive. It would probably be nice to set up automatic syncing between iPhone and your computer via iCloud.
Well, so as not to set up anything and not wait for half a day Decided. done!

As usual, I provide several different methods for you to choose from, which from my point of view are the most normal and working. Here are the main ways to copy photos from iPhone to computer that I myself regularly use.
iPhone as USB Drive (PC Users)
If you are a happy owner of a Windows PC, then you shouldn’t have any problems copying photos from iPhone to hard drive at all. In most cases, Windows recognizes the iPhone as a USB flash drive and adds a device to File Explorer that you can view. Here’s a good example.
STEP 1. Connect the iPhone with a USB cable to your computer. Your device will be recognized and a standard set of actions will be presented for your choice.
STEP 2. From this list, only the first two items “Import photos and videos” and “Open device for viewing files” are suitable for us. If you chose the second item, do not flatter yourself too much.
No one will allow you to access the system files, and on the internal storage of the iPhone you will find only folders with photos. As you can see in the picture below, there are really a lot of folders.
I don’t understand why Apple coded everything like that, because now to find one single photo you need to shove through a bunch of folders. Try to sort by date and time of creation in order to somehow navigate in space.
STEP 3. If you still selected the item “Import photos and videos”, then you will see such a window. Everything should be clear here without my blah-blah-blah
Select the folder where we want to copy the pictures and click OK. All photos and videos from the phone are copied. We are not allowed to choose just one or two.
Send photo to your e-mail
Everything is clear here. You can send photos to your e-mail, and then save them on your computer by opening the sent letter. I really like this method, but there are a couple of BUT.
First, you need an internet connection. Secondly, it is inconvenient to send a lot of photos in this way Although to whom it is. Well, in general, you get the idea. If you don’t know how to do this, here’s a little guide:
STEP 1. Go to the Camera Roll and press the Select button.
STEP 2. Select the photos to be sent by mail. ATTENTION. You can only attach 5 photos at a time (per email).
STEP 3. Press the button in the lower left corner (square and up arrow) and select Mail from the menu that opens. Now it remains to enter your email box and send a letter.
Next, go to your mailbox and save photos from there to your computer. This method is very helpful when you don’t have a cable in your hands, but you have the Internet. The downside is that only 5 photos can be attached to one letter.
If there are too many photos, you will have to send a lot of letters. And one more little nuance. email must be configured on your iPhone. In general, in this way, you can transfer photos to any device on which you can open mail and view photos.
IFunBox File Manager (PC and MAC Users)
What? None of the methods above worked. Well, you are harmful! And disgusting! Then try iFunBox. It is a file manager for Windows and MAC that allows you to copy documents, videos, photos and other files to and from your computer and back to your iOS device.
Using iFunBox, you can access folders and files on your iPhone as if it were a regular USB drive.
I repeat once again. the program is absolutely free. By installing it on your computer, you can permanently get rid of the “headache” when copying photos from iPhone to computer. The interface is very simple: on the left is a directory tree, on the right is files, on the top are buttons for actions. Screen below.
In this article, I have considered only those methods that I myself use and that I am confident in their performance. To be honest, I don’t like cloud self-syncing via iCloud, DropBox, etc. For me this is somehow too futuristic.
I guess I’m “old school guy”. I am sure that everyone will choose the most convenient method for themselves. Personally, I copy photos in different ways depending on the situation.
If I was helpful today, like it on social networks (buttons below). By the way, one of the next upcoming articles is “Freeing up free space and cleaning up Other content on iPhone”.
We will do this using the same iFunBox program. So sign up for updates now! I only share secrets with subscribers
