    I hope someone can help. A friend of mine has lost a lot of his photos whilst importing them from his iphone.

    His workflow (from what he has told me), is to import from iphone to MBP via Image capture, and then into Iphoto.

    After importing them into image capture and whilst transferring to Iphoto, his mac froze and he had to re-start. He has lost the images as they were deleted from iphone and they are not visible on his MBP.

    Could anyone tell me where Image capture stores the photos before handing them on to iphoto? I guess there must be a tmp directory of some sort.

    Should be somewhere!

    The Files should be Stored in a Folder in your 'Library' Folder or somewhere like that. :confused:

    that's what i'd have thought but i can't find them in there. they must be somewhere though. does image capture put them somewhere in particular?
