    Sold my iphone, how can I get the photos that are backed up in Itunes? Any programs or anything?

    If you made a backup of your phone, then you should have a fairly recent one in there. Only way to actually access the data is if you restore it to another iPhone. Did you ever import your photos to iPhoto?

    If you have a Mac use Image Capture. It's easy and you don't have to use iPhoto or iTunes.

    This is the only thing I can think of too, unless someone has made a program that opens up iPhone backups. But I'm unaware of anything like that.

    I know this method. But this requires the data already being on the iPhone. OP is talking about the data not being on the iPhone itself but in the backup file that iTunes creates.

    You could try iPhone Backup Extractor. I haven't tried it, so I can't vouch for it, but it says it will restore files from a backup file as long as it's not encrypted.

    iBackupBot will do it.


    I've used it, therefore I can vouch for it.

    HTH.

    Edit to say: If the backup is encrypted (as was mine), you do need to decrypt it first. Which doesn't require said iPhone being on hand.
