    Typically at home I use iPhoto with my iMac to download the phones and videos from my iPhone. But I'm planning to go on a trip for 3 weeks and would want to clear my phone of photos/videos each day. Can I do this with my macbook while away from home? Would the iPhone mess up if I try to use iPhoto with it from two computers? :confused::confused:

    All you have to on your MacBook is this:

    1.Plug iPhone to MacBook
    2. Close iTunes (if it pops up, close it again).
    3. Open Image Capture (it's an app built-in to all Macs)
    4. Select photos/videos
    5. Save your photos/videos from iPhone to MacBook in that app.

    It saves the original photos/video into a folder of your choice on your MacBook.

    Oh ok awesome! Does it delete everything off the iPhone too? So I can use the space for the next day?

    There is an option on there: "Delete after import".

    So, yes.
