    I use my macbook at school and often I need to take photos and put them into my notes.
    With my old phone I would send them via bluetooth, but now I have an iPhone I can't.
    My question is this:
    Can I transfer my photos from my iPhone to my mac without using wire in the full 3megapixel quality?

    You can upload to Flickr in full quality from Flickr apps

    There's no wireless way to get photos off the phone and onto the computer. Email, mobileme galleries ect, all resize them. Only way to get them off in full res is USB.

    Sorry to disappoint you.

    Thats a defect in my eyes, and I am surprised it has been overlooked

    Will anybody be able to utilise the p2p api to send files to a computer?

    Can't you just go into the photo roll and copy the picture you want then paste in an email. Think that keeps the full size of it.

    Edit: Of course I just tested it using a picture I took twice so I can't tell if I sent the same one both times (I'm an idiot :confused:). But the sizes between sending via email in the photo app, and copying one from the photo app and posting into mail were a difference of 500kb, so I believe that copying the pictures retains its full size.

    Yep, just tried it. 1.4MB file attachment, 2048x1536.

    note: for full size you have to copy from the thumbnail view, not when copy pops up via holding a finger down on your screen when the photo is fullscreened. also i only got a 1200x1600 res photo.. how did you get a bigger one?

    EDIT: oh i emailed to blogger and i guess they cap it at 1200x1600. when i see it in my sent box it is 2048x1536. awesome.

    it's one area where the iphone is way below the competition. i miss the ease of bluetoothing photos to my macs form my sony-ericsson (5mp camera). luckily, the missus has just upgraded to a 8mp samsung the photos absolutely rock:p

    There is finally someone who made an app to solve this "issue". Check out PhotoToMac.

    Transfers camera roll photos over WiFi to a shared folder. Works great.
