used iphone to store photos and can't get them off

Hi there,

Have a G1 iPhone that I used to store photos on about a year ago. Been trying and trying to figure out how to get them off the phone and onto my comp. Can't seem to access the photos thru iPhoto or iTunes - ony thru the iPhone. I have both a Mac and pc that I can use to get them off, but haven't figured out how.

The photos are stored not on the Camera Roll, but on the Photo Library.

Anybody have any tips for me please? I have the latest updates on the phone, and it hasn't been jailbroken.

Many Thanks!

If you connect your phone with your mac, iPhoto should start and you should be able to import the pictures you have taken with your iPhone.

This doesn't work with photos you synced to the phone. You have to go back to the original on the computer you have synced the phone with.

I know how to get photos off my phone thru iPhoto.

What I did was use my phone to store photos from another computer. Now I can't get those photos off of my phone. Are you saying that I have to go back to the original computer I used to transfer those photos onto my iPhone?

Use DiskAid. You can then browse the media folders and transfer the pics back to your computer.

That's exactly what I was trying to say.

But dZp's solution seams to be much better for you.
