How to Transfer Photos from Windows PC to iPhone (iOS 7 and earlier)?
Last Updated :
There are several ways to transfer photos from computer to iPhone. If you have windows PC and iPhone with iOS 7 and earlier version, then you can use "iCloud Control Panel" and the "Uploads" folder within the Photo Stream folder. You need to install and configure iCloud Control Panel for Windows PC. Once you copied photos into Photo Stream, they may not be easy to find, because it is ordered by date on which the photos were taken.

Go to http://support.apple.com/kb/DL1455 and download the "iCloud Control Panel" software from Apple.
Install "iCloud Control Panel" software on your Windows PC and launch it.
Restart your Windows PC.
Make sure "iCloud for Windows" is open. If it doesn't open automatically, go to "Start", open "Apps or Programs", and open "iCloud for Windows".
Enter your Apple ID to sign in to iCloud.
Check the box next to each iCloud feature you want to enable.
Click "Apply" button.
Once you set up iCloud Control Panel on your Windows PC, open an "Explorer" window and navigate to the folder in which the photos you stored.
Select the photos which you want to transfer, right-click on them and select "Copy" option.
Navigate to the "Picture' folder and find "Photo Stream" folder. The Photo Stream folder is created when you install the iCloud Control Panel.

PicBackMan does exactly what it's supposed to. It's quick and efficient. It runs unobtrusively in the background and has done an excellent job of uploading more than 300GB of photos to 2 different services. After having lost a lot of personal memories to a hard drive crash, it's nice to know that my photos are safe in 2 different places.

LOVE this program! Works better than ANY other program out there that I have found to upload thousands of pictures WITH SUB-FOLDERS to SmugMug!
Thank you so much for what you do! :) #happycustomer
I pointed PicBackMan at a directory structure, and next time I looked - all the photos had uploaded! Pretty cool. I use SmugMug and while I really like it, the process of creating directories in is pretty laborious when you need to make 80+ at a time. This was a breeze. Thank you!
PicBackMan was really easy to setup and has been running for 3 days now backing up all my locally saved photos to Flickr. My photos are really valuable to me so it's great to be able to have them easily backed up to a secure location.
It's AWESOME!! I have tens of thousands of pictures...and they are now successfully uploaded to SmugMug, where they are safely backed up, and I can edit and organize them. If you are hesitating about using PicBackMan, hesitate no longer...try it...and you'll be glad you did!!
I started with the basic plan, went to premium and now on their platinum plan and it's more than worth the price for me. PicBackMan has saved me many tedious hours of effort moving many files between my various cloud and photo site services and my local computers.
I am very satisfied and surprised at the same time with Pic BackMan. The service is very good and useful. I used it to transfer my photos from Dropbox to my Flickr accound. I highly recomment it.
PicBackMan was an answer to many a prayer. How can I get this MASSIVE collection of photos onto a service that cripples uploading? PicBackMan. I uploaded approximately 85,000 photos in less than a month. It would have taken me close to a year to get all of those photos where they needed to go. Nothing short of brilliant.
I have thousands of family photos and it's always been such a pain to upload them to various cloud services for offline storage. Well not anymore! PicBackMan makes backing everything up a complete breeze. I don't know how I ever lived without it!
I was poking around the Internet looking for an easy tool to help me consolidate 15 years of my pictures from Google Photos and Flickr etc - this tool was very easy to use and was painless to setup.
