When you have your iPhone docked and open iPhoto, you should get a screen in iPhoto telling you it sees the iPhone and you just click import. Does iPhoto even see the iPhone? Here is a screenshot of what mine looks like.

Hi,

Just read your post. I was having the same problem.

Here is the solution.

Make sure iPhoto is open.

With iPhone in the Dock, turn it on -- or perhaps better put, unlock it or bring iPhone out of sleep.

You may notice that iPhoto will refresh.

Next in iPhoto reclick on the "Apple iPhone" under the left iPhoto source menu -- this should enable the "import" feature.

I think the key is to have the iPhone awake and active.

Please post and let me know if this works.

Thanks,

Dante

Are those 200 photos that you took with your iPhone? I believe that the option to import refers to photos that you specifically took with your iPhone, not photos that happen to be stored on the phone.

Correct me if I'm wrong, anyone.

The "Last 12 Months" button within iPhoto should show all photos stored on your phone using iPhoto. Try that if you haven't already.

similar issue

iPhoto doesn't recognize my iPhone - I've tried powering it off and back on, unlocking etc... it simply does not see the phone as a device. All software is up to date and iTunes syncs properly. Could this be because I have syncing of photos turned off in iTunes? When I try to turn it on I'm warned that I may lose all photos currently on my iPhone... Any ideas?

I have the exact same dilemma.

This Worked for Me...

On the main iPhone tab, I had to uncheck 'automatically sync' in iTunes, apply, then make sure the phone was on, iPhoto and iTunes launched, then drop into the cradle/dock.

This brought up the import page in iPhoto.

Until I did this, the phone was not recognized by iPhoto because iTunes was taking over and apparently iPhoto was left out of the party!

Solution...

Open application: Image Capture

Turn iPhone OFF/ON and the program will discover it. Then use the lower drop-down list to find iPhone to iPhoto import.

it worked for me too - thanks!!! :D

I had over 500 phones in iPhone and unchecking the auto sync on iTunes worked for me too!

if iPhoto does not recognize iPhone, delete the save pictures you have on the iPhone from safari/mail.

Anyone having troubles importing their photos to their Mac using a cable could also consider my PhotoToMac iPhone app that transfers camera roll photos over WiFi.
All other people should consider it too :)

Same thing just happened to me, too!

I was just now trying to import and no matter what I tried my iPhone stopped showing up in iPhoto.It used to be when I plugged it in it'd take over and iPhoto would pop up and ready to go. :( What could have changed? All the settings are correct. I'm baffled.:confused:

Same problem as recently discussed.

I have the same problem where iPhone 3G is recognized by iTunes but iPhoto no longer can identify the phone.

I have not made any recent updates or changes. It just stopped working. I know there may be work arounds but I would rather it work the way it was designed to work.

Any help would be great.

The tip from darkmeton did it for me: I deleted photos saved from mail and/or safari, dis- and reconnected the iPhone and it immediately came up in iPhoto. Turning off auto-sync did not work for me.

What is the procedure for deleting photos saved from Mail?

iphone photos not uploading to iphoto

I have the same issue where iphoto does not see the iphone. I recently purchased a new 3GS iphone and when I plugged it into the Mac it brought up the iphoto program like it used to do. After I syncd the new phone with the older back up, it did not launch iPhoto again and still will not see it. I will keep trying different things that are mentioned on this thread and if I find out what my issue was and if it gets resolved, I will also post it. I am glad to see that I am not the only one here that has the same issue.
