    plug it in to your Macbook and copy the camera roll?

    Your Macbook should mount the iphone as a USB type drive you can access when it is plugged in. Look for the DCIM folder.

    Yes, but i was talking about transfering full resolution photos back to iPhone :)

    P.s. Macbook is not mounting iphone as drive, iphone and itunes are recognizing it..

    Unfortunately, Apple is too limiting. I would recommend using Dropbox for this.

    Dropbox/cloud is a very pain free way to do this.

    You can also use iTunes file transfer into the iOS version of iPhoto. Then export the images back to Photos.app. This also works with many 3rd party photo/media library apps.

    I've done this with 4k x 3k files and the resolution is preserved although the file size is not identical. Problem with these methods is that they just dump everything into the Camera Roll...

    Since when can you write to the camera roll?

    You're right. You can't copy directly to the camera roll. I probably got that confused with something else.
