    I have the iPhone 3G with the 2.0.2 software update and whenever I sync the phone to my Mac I never get a pop-up asking if I want to sync the photos I took with my phone like when I sync it to a PC. I looked at settings and tried to find a folder that the photos might be automatically saved into but I didn't find anything. Can someone please help me sync photos taken on my phone to my Mac?

    You need to use iPhoto. It will detect your iPhone as a camera and you can import your pictures from there.

    Otherwise (and correct me if I'm wrong), your pics are backed up by iTunes every time you sync.

    Strangely no it doesn't backup your photo's.

    Use iPhoto to transfer your photo's like the other poster suggested.

    This might be a question for its own thread, but does this keep the original quality of the photo? I don't like that when I sync, it reduces the quality of the photos I take. I want my hi-res photos to be able to be put on.
