    Hi all

    Been searching for ways to do this on the 3G I Phone to an IMAC G5.

    I've had my IMAC 4 years now and am very close to throwing the thing through the window.

    Why on earth can't you simply import images from your I Phone onto your IMAC? I have I Photo 5 version 5.0.4 which is what was supplied with the MAC. I have no intention of paying for an upgrade as I no longer intend to keep the MAC for much longer. I'm struggling to get on with it and using spreadsheets on MACS is a nightmare as far as I'm concerned.

    If I plug in my I Phone to my IMAC all the software wants to do is add every image from I Photo onto my I Phone.

    Are you trying to tell me that the only way I can get images across from my I Phone to my IMAC is by emailing each indivudual image?

    Not being able to Bluetooth from the I Phone onto the MAC is also ridiculous. I can Bluetooth any mobile I like to my IMAC but not an I Phone.

    Can someone please enlighen me? Thanks.

    I can't say for sure, because I'm not looking at your Mac, but when I plug my phone into the Mac, iPhoto pops up and asks if I want to import photos, and I can then select all the photos in the camera roll or just the ones that I want. Works that way on every Mac that I have seen, or PC to for that matter.

    You can always import the pictures into your mac with the image capture application
