    Hi everyone,

    iMac desktop running OS 10.9.2 / iphoto 9.5.1 / iphone 4s iOS 6.1.2

    I went on holiday for 6 weeks (and I took lots of photos on my iPhone). I got my iPhone wet and now, when i connect it to my iMac, the computer doesn't 'see' it.

    30 days worth of photos can be viewed via iPhoto (I think they were sent from my phone to computer wirelessly).

    How can I get the photos that are older than 30 days onto iPhoto?

    I THINK I have them backed up to iCloud, but don't know what to do next. :confused:

    I thought of two possible solutions -
    1, email the photos to myself.
    2, repair the iPhone.

    What do you guys think?

    Thanks very much for taking the time to read. Much appreciated.

    Gav :)

    Are the photos still on the iPhone, just not syncing? Try a photo transfer app like PhotoSync.

    Yes, the photos are still on the iPhone.

    Actually, I've just noticed: some of the photos even from the last 30 days are not showing up on iPhoto.

    I shall look into photo sync, thanks
