    Hi everyone. Since I came from using a PC... I used to be able to just take the iPhone photos off the phone by going to My Computer and clicking the iPhone as it acted like a removable device. In a MAC, can we still do that? What options do we have? Thanks!

    Image Capture (in /Applications/Utilities) can download one or more images from the iPhone to wherever you want.

    Preview.app -> File -> Import from 'iPhoneName'

    trust me. :)
    it's lightweight, it imports single or multiple photos to ... anywhere by just dragging them AND you can delete individual photos on the device aswell.

    Cool options! Didn't know other ways existed other than iPhoto.

    I'll have to try that Preview.app trick
