    Hi

    I'm looking for one particular photo someone sent me in the past via iMessage.
    I know it's stored on my MacBook, thanks to the Messages app.
    The process of finding this photo would be quicker if I wouldn't have to load the whole conversation, so I hope someone has a way to download all attachments in a folder.

    Thanks for the help

    Pretty sure you can't do that exactly, looking around on google though it seems it's possible to have conversations saved to a folder but you need to have enabled it.

    Google around & see, there seems to be plenty of ways to pull full conversations off an iPhone / iPad, you could do that if you have one?

    I do have an iPhone and iPad, even a program to extract their backups (iExplorer), the only problem is that the conversation that I speak of, is deleted from these devices a long time a go so I lose that possibility. I really only have them stored in the Messages app.
    By the way, the first thing I always do, is google :) After half an hour I didn't find a solution so I tried on this forum.

    Thanks for the input!
