    Take the pictures with the phone and then connect it to your computer. Your computer should recognize the phone as a camera and prompt you to select a photo program if you're using Windows or iPhoto if you're using a Mac. Cheers.

    Another thing is to simply email it to yourself.

    E-mailing photos gives you only smaller low-res copies of the image. You also have to e-mail one at a time. It is better to pull them directly from the computer.

    If you have a Mac, they load right into iPhoto. Not sure if you have a Windows PC. I assume it shows up like any other Camera would...

    I use my iPhone's camera much more than I ever used any Cell Phone camera, just because it is so easy to pull the images into iPhoto...

    I didn't realize that it lowered the resolution for email. I haven't used the camera much myself as its no comparison to my DSLRs.

    I just checked, and yes you are correct it shows up like a standard digital camera would with a DCIM folder in Windows.

    Cannot upload photos from iPhone

    When I plug my iPhone into my MacBook, it automatically syncs. However, it never uploads the photos from the camera to iPhoto. Can anyone help me do this???
