    Are these photos that you did not sync using iTunes? That you took with your camera, but are not in your camera roll?

    Supposedly Air Share will do that. I don't have the app, but from what I've read that may be what you need. Wished I had got it when it was free.

    You don't need Air Share for this. I sync 3 albums that are managed in iPhoto with my iPhone. You can create the albums and then launch iTunes (with your phone attached to your computer) and tell iTunes to sync specific iPhoto albums.

    Jessica, the reason I suggested air share was that I thought he wouldn't be able to sync on a new computer like that. So, you can do that? I humbly ask the question of you, oh Demi-Godess, please do not thrash me for my stupidity, since I am working off the unworthy PC and not the Glorious Mac.

    If he is syncing his iPhone to the new computer now then all he has to do is sync his created album in iPhoto.
    And the sarcasm doesn't suit you ... you know? ;) As a demi I am no better than you and in many cases I'm worse. :)

    Okay, Jessica., This has been bugging me for a while:

    Is your avatar a cat licking his/her own crotch?

    Actually I wasn't being that sarcastic, since you have been around awhile (and I'm not saying you're old, just better, finer....I'll stop now :)), so of course you know more. Anyway, I thought he wasn't syncing to the new computer; that he just wanted to move pics off his iPhone to there for some reason. So, I'm confused, because I thought you couldn't do that unless you were making it your new computer.

    I'm not sure I understand what you are trying to do...

    1. You have photos in iPhoto on an old mac. You sync your iPhone with a new mac and want these photos on the new computer to then get synced onto the iPhone? - If so, then locate your iPhoto Library File and copy it onto your new computer. Then you can set it up to sync your iPhone.

    2. You have photos on your iPhone that you don't have on a computer and you want to be able to get them from the phone onto the computer? If so, you'll have to buy a program that can strip pictures out of the iPhone and copy them to your computer.

    3. You have photos in iPhoto on the same computer you're syncing your iPhone with? If so, open iTunes and check the photos tab for your Photo Syncing settings.

    There is another thread that I thought someone asked that but I thought this guy had iPhoto photos in his computer that he wanted on the iPhone.

    Too many threads ... I am confused.

    Well, he needs to come back and clarify a lot of things anyway. I'm confused too.

    I thought it was a musical instrument at first also. Then I got a closer look.


    I still have no idea if it is the cats or not:confused:
