Taking pictures is so easy these days that you often end up with 1000s of photos on your phone. There's no harm in keeping all these photos on your iPhone, but they eventually eat up a lot of storage space and there might be no space available to download new app. To overcome this issue you may get photos off your iPhone and on to your Mac. There are several ways to it, but here we will se how it is done via iPhoto
Many people use iPhoto to organised and manipulate their photos, and it’s certainly a great way to keep everything tagged and categorized. iPhoto can also easily import all your mobile photos in seconds as follows:
- Connect the iPhone to your Mac and open iPhoto (if it’s not already set to open automatically when you connect your iPhone)
- In the left hand panel under DEVICES click on your iPhone. Your iPhone should appear in the Devices list
- Next you can choose whether you want to split events for each day or not, and also enter an event name (such as ‘day trip’)
- In the main window, choose the photos you want to import and then Import Selected, or Import <N> Photos (e.g. if you have 20 photos on the iPhone it will display Import 20 Photos. Choose the photos to import and enter an event name
- When prompted, choose either Delete Photos or Keep Photos on your iPhone. Decide whether you want to keep the imported photos on your iPhone. Your photos should now appear inside the event you named, as well as in the Last Import album.
Your photos should show up in the event you named, and the Last Import album.
