    I have an iPhone with great wallpapers that I'd like to dump on my husband's phone. I'd prefer to do this with iTunes and not manually via SSH.
    I can't see any way to do this through iTunes without nuking all his photos on his phone.

    Is it correct that I have to manually move them over? If so, I'm unclear how to do that so any help is appreciated.

    Unless I'm missing the obvious...

    Make a new photo album in iPhoto called "iPhone Wallpaper" or somesuch in his user account on the computer.

    Copy all the wallpapers into that album.

    In iTunes, plug the iPhone in, go to the photos tab, and add that new album to the list of synced albums....

    So set up a "user account or admin account" in his name.... Then when the iPhone is plugged in, it'll bring that up? I think it'll still wipe his current photos, etc. off his phone. ?

    I wonder if there's a way to just send him the wallpaper from my iMac's iPhoto to his PC? Course then how to get those files in his iTunes. LOL Well, I'm feeling pretty stupid right now. No doubt.
