    I have some images on my work computer that I want to send to my iPhone (without syncing through iTunes because it isn't installed at work) and store them in my camera roll so that they are accessible for uploading through my social apps.

    Any idea how to do this?

    Email the photos to your iPhone's email. Then, you can save them to your Camera Roll (you just hold down on a picture then it gives you an option to save it).

    This, or you can tap the reply arrow on the bottom of the display and select save all photos. It usually gives you the number of images being saved.

    Do take note that both of these features only work after all of the images have been loaded.

    If you're using the iOS latest and greatest, you can upload your photos from the work PC to Photo Stream via the iCloud control panel and then save them to your phone.

    But wait, there's more! With a Dropbox account you can view the photos on your phone, with the option of saving them to your camera roll.

    Hello all,

    I'm interested in because when I use dropbox or the apps drop2roll, I lose the EXIF (or geoloc) information... When I compare the picture before and after upload, weight is different...

    The only way I found is to upload picture to a website and download them one by one.

    The problem is that I have 150 pictures to restore (after a crash of my backup).

    Can someone help?

    Only if photostream doesnt break like it did with my setup and I can not get it back to working condition anymore.

    Look up for Photo Transfer App on the App Store. It's one of the best apps ever :)

    How do you do this? I don't see that option when I am logged in to the icloud website?

    You need to download the iCloud control panel SW to your Windows PC first.

    Is that part of itunes or a separate download?

    It is a separate download. But when you download iTunes I think it does ask if you want to install it along with iTunes. But you can install it separately too later. Just do a Google search for it. You should see a link for the download.

    I use an app called Photosync. Works perfectly for what you are describing as long as the computer and iPhone are on the same wifi network.

    What this person said. There is a folder if you have Windows (not sure on Mac) but in Documents under the Photos folder there is a folder called Photo Stream in that folder there is a folder called Upload. You can move photo's in that folder and it well auto upload and appear on your phone.
