where the $#@% does itunes put photos it syncs FROM your iphone? (windows)

This is on windows 7, itunes 10 something, ios 4.1something

I've searched around for 45 minutes for this.

I cannot find where itunes is putting the the photos synced FROM my iphone on to my PC that I have taken with the iphone.

I can find options for syncing photos TO the phone, which to mean is semi-useless. I want to get the photos I've taken with the phone on to my PC. no dice.

help?

I don't have a Windows machine so I can't speak from experience, but I don't believe iTunes automatically syncs photos over from the iPhone on a Windows machine. In fact, I don't believe it automatically syncs on my Mac either, I have to open up iPhoto at which point I am prompted to import photos.

A quick Google search though did bring me this page with instructions on how to do so manually. http://www.trickyways.com/2010/01/transfer-iphone-pictures-to-pc-windows-7/

Umm can't you just import them? When I use bootcamp and connect my iP4 I can browse my camera roll files through explorer.

Step 1: Connect phone to computer
Step 2: Wait for AutoPlay to pop up
Step 3: Click 'Open device to view files'
Step 4: Doubleclick 'Internal Storage'
Step 5: Doubleclick 'DCIM'
Step 6: Doubleclick the folder inside that one
Step 7: Copy the pictures in here to a new folder
Step 8: There is no step 8
Step 9: This folder is now the folder you keep your iPhone photos in, it must be backed up manually

This is correct to the best of my knowledge, if someone has a better way (possibly automated?) please correct me

Try some other tools, like iFunbox or iTong, easier to manage files on your device.

actually if you just import the pictures the regular way through Autoplay, then when Windows picture Gallery pops up, right click on one of those photos and click show containing folder.
