Well, I am a little confused: The title of the thread says Mac to iPhone and in the thread you say iPhone to Mac. I think you want iPhone to Mac so I will explain that.

You have to connect you iPhone and open iPhoto. In iPhoto, your iPhone should show up as a device. You can select the photo(s) that you want and select Import Selected. If you want to import all, you can click Import All.

That only works for pictures in the iPhone camera roll.

Pictures that were transferred to the iPhone from a computer by syncing through iTunes are stored in a compressed format in the mobile\Media\Photos directory. I don't know of a way to uncompress this file, and even if you could, the pictures would have been down-sized from the original.

The point is, don't think the iPhone or any iPod can act as a backup device for your media. Make real backups!

To get your media back you can click File>Transfer Purchases, in iTunes.
