    Hi there,
    In the past, when I connected my iphone to the Mac to sync it would automatically open Iphoto (v. 6.0.6), to get the new pictures. This does not happen anymore and I do not understand why. Please help me. I need to get those photos out of my iphone. Is there a way to do it outside Iphoto?
    Thx

    You can always open iPhoto manually! I f you want to set it open automatically go to iPhoto preferences>general, and select "connecting camera opens" Iphoto.

    My Iphoto (v. 6.0.6)/preferences/general does not have such item

    Hi James,
    Thx for the quick rely. My Iphoto, version 6.0.6, does not have such item to choose from. I have opened every single window looking for something similar, but it is not there. So I have nothing to prompt the import from iphoto.
    Why all of a sudden Iphoto is no longer importing my new Iphone photos, like it used to, and how could I still move such photos then from the iphone onto the mac? I do not see how.

    I didn't see that you were running an older version. See if you can change it in image capture.

    Problem fixed, thx a lot!

    Hi James,
    In the end, via the thread you suggested, I got to the iphone hardware problems link and did the "Settings/General/Reset/Reset settings" (no data touched) in the iphone and everything got back to normal. Iphoto, even in my trogolodite version, sees now the iphone again, as it should. Big thx again!
