Sometimes, I am really feeling interest in doing this kind of job because I can run into many funny questions raised by readers. Recently many readers ask me, “how to move iPhone photos to iTunes” “how to transfer pictures from iPhone to iTunes”. Here I have to response positively and responsively. As files transfer software, iTunes only can be used to backup and sync files between your iDevice and PC, not be used to save any files. So it’s completely impossible to transfer photos from iPhone to iTunes on PC. If you want to save pictures from iPhone to PC, here are two effective ways to deal with it.

Solution1. Transfer Photos from iPhone to PC via iTunes

Surely, as an official files transfer tool, iTunes is designed to move photos, movies and so on to your PC and vice versa. If you established a few albums on iPhone, you’d better place the individual folder into a larger folder so that you can individually select which subfolders you want in iTunes.

1. Download and install the latest iTunes. Connect your iPhone to PC and run the program.

2. Find the iPhone icon on the menu and click Photos tab under settings on the left.

3. Check the box to Sync Photos from and browse to the wanted folder and select the picture you’d like to download.

4. Click Apply to download pictures from iPhone.
