    I know i can easily email it to myself, but for whatever reason my email isn't working right now, i need to get these pictures off my phone tonight for a school project, does anyone know of any program that i can use to get them off my phone? I have access to both a mac and a pc so the platform that the program is for doesnt matter, thanks in advance!

    I don't understand
    Can't you just choose to sync your photos from iTunes into iPhoto or a folder?
    That's what I always do

    Just connect to iTunes, select the Photos tab and sync

    I'm assuming that's a mac only thing, because on my windows iTunes, it doesn't offer for me to sync my photos to a folder, but thanks i will try iPhoto

    Open the iPhone in Windows as you would any other external harddrive. Navigate to the folder that your photos are located in and copy them to your harddrive.

    It amazes me why people think they need special applications to execute the simplest of tasks...

    Aperture is great but really? For an iPhone?

    I'd go iPhoto or picassa (for windows and Mac)

    Your sig lists a mac that is why I said "iPhoto".

    Yes, I think you can also use image capture on Mac to do the same thing. Think of it as a digital camera (or thumb drive in essence on windows side of things).

    Very simple to do. No application needed really, except for image capture since the phone doesn't mount as a drive on Mac.

    Interesting
    I have never used Image Capture before
    Never even started the application

    But lo and behold, all my iPhone pics showed up

    Sorry to be an a$$, but image capture and iPhoto (IDK about Picassa) can only be used to get camera roll pics off. I think he wants to get all his pics off.

    So, you need to use Sharepod on a PC, which is free, or Phoneview on a Mac, which is not free.

    Of course, if I assumed wrong, then what you recommend is fine, but since the OP didn't say, he should have all the options.

    Hate to sound like a noob but where else are pics stored?

    Also, 'iphone explorere' is multi platform and free.

    iPhone explorer does not work if you are not jailbroke to get pics that are not in the camera roll.

    Pics synced from your computer are stored elsewhere on your iPhone, in answer to your question. Pics "taken" with the iPhone are in the camera roll. Understand?
