    I have some files .jpg in my iMac. I want to put them in my iPhone.
    Is it possible put them into my wallpaper list? How can I do it?

    Thanks!

    Not without hacking it, what you can do is just make an iPhoto album called Wallpapers and access them via the photos app.

    Put the JPEGs into iPhoto. Make an album in iPhoto and call it 'Wallpapers.' Add the photos to that album.

    Then, in iTunes, look at the 'Photos' tab when syncing your iPhone. You can select that album. Any future photos you add to that album will be copied when you plug your phone in.

    Basically, iPhoto albums and iTunes playlists work the exact same way.

    Sorry man, I didn't know you were that new to the process or I would have explained further.

    Cheers

    Yes, I am new! No problem...
    :)

    Just one more thing...I've just created a new album. It is also shown in 'events'. Is there a way to show it just in 'albums' and not in 'events'?

    Thanks.

    In iPhoto, click the file drop down menu and select New Album. Give it the name you want and it will show in your Album list. Now go to the photos in Events and drag and drop them in to your new Album

    I created the new album and the photos are there.
    But they still are in events. I want them just in albums. I don't want them in events.

    Is it possible?

    No

    iTunes Library = iPhone Events = Where your Media IS
    iTunes Playlists = iPhoto Albums = Where you organize your stuff


    Erasing the photos from Evens will actually erase the photo entirely.
