How To Download Photos From iPhone

People post pictures of everything and doing everything on Instagram these days. Also on Facebook and Tinder. But some wierdos actually save and savor the photos. They need to copy the pics onto other devices! I want to help you out guys. Here is how to download photos from iPhone.

Through iPhotos

Step 1: Plug the phone into your computer, either using a 30-pin USB cord or Lightning cable, the same way you would go if you were downloading music.

Step 2: The Photos app should launch automatically, if not, open the program via Launchpad or the main Applications folder. You can choose either Aperture or iPhoto.

Step 3: If using Photos, tap on the “Import” button in the upper-right corner, or select the individual photos you wish to transfer before tapping on the “Import Selected” button at the top. You can also check the “Delete” box if you wish to automatically delete the photos on your iPhone after importing is finished.

When you are done, select Albums from the drop-down menu at the top of Photos, and open Last Import to view your freshly uploaded images.

Through iCloud

You can also use the Apple iCloud service to sync photos from iPhone to your laptop or computer. Just enable iCloud on your iPhone in Settings and turn on Photo Stream.

Then download the iCloud Control Panel onto your computer. After that, all photos that you take with your iPhone will be saved within seconds directly to your computer if you’re connected to WIFI. If you’re not connected to WIFI when you take the pictures, they will be synced to your computer the next time you have WIFI connection.

NB: the core iCloud services are available on Windows 10 too.

Windows — Windows 8 or later

Windows treats the iPhone as either a digital camera or a file system, depending on how the photos are accessed. On a Windows PC, the easiest way to get pictures from your iPhone is to just use Windows Explorer, but there are two ways to go about this. In either case, unlock the iPhone before beginning, or else the photos may not be visible.

Transfer Photos with Windows Explorer.

This utilizes the pop-up menu that shows by default when a device is connected to the computer via USB.

Plug the iPhone into your computer or your laptop without iTunes running,

1. Wait for a popup asking you what you want to do with the device,

2. Choose “View Content”,

3. Find your photos through the displayed folders,

4. Copy the images onto Windows as it is usually done.

If your iPhone is already plugged into the PC, you can also try this method:

1.Open “My Computer”,

2. Find the iPhone, it will appear under Portable Devices section,

3. Open iPhone to find your Photos,

4. Select the pictures you want to copy and paste them to the desired location on your computer.

NB, if the iPhone pictures are not showing up in Windows, make sure the iPhone is unlocked first. Otherwise the iPhone will be found in “My Computer” but all of the content on it will be invisible and inaccessible. If you run into that, all you need to do is touch the iPhone, unlock the screen and enter the passcode, and all of your stuff will be visible as expected.

Here is another process, nearly identical for Windows 8 and 10 users, so you shouldn’t experience much trouble using any recent Windows OS.

Step 1: Plug the phone into your computer, either using a 30-pin USB cord or Lightning cable, the same way you would do if you were downloading music.

Step 2: The Photos app should automatically launch, if not, open the program using the Windows Start menu or search bar.

Step 3: Tap on the “Import” button in the upper-right corner, that looks like a box with a downward arrow inside. Afterwards, check the individual photos you are transferring from your iPhone and click Continue in the bottom left.

When you are done, click the Albums button accessible at LH navigational pane. Then, choose “Last Import” at the top to view, share, or edit any of your recently-uploaded photos.

Through iTunes

If you’re using Windows, you can also sync the photos on your device with iTunes on your computer. If you have a number of albums on your iPhone, it is recommended to put the separate folders into a larger folder. Go like this:

1. Organize your photos in iPhone,

2. Plug in your iPhone and open iTunes,

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

4. Check the box to “Sync Photos”,

5. Click “Choose folder…” from the drop down menu,

6. Browse to the desired folder,

7. Choose the picture folder you’d like to sync.

The Dropbox’s mobile app for iOS gadgets takes that functionality one step further, granting you a means to manually or automatically upload your photos to the cloud any time.

Google Photos is impressive. Google people earn their money. The service launched  in 2015 and called by viewers “among the best of its kind” provides unlimited data for all your photos.  The unlimited storage supports images up to 16 megapixels and videos up to 1080p. Moreover, just like Dropbox, the mobile app allows you to automatically upload and view any photos through your device or a desktop browser.

Manually

Step 1: If you don’t have it installed already, download the Google Photos mobile app and log in.

Step 2: Tap on the menu icon, which is three horizontal bars, in the upper left corner. Then, choose “Photos” from the resulting menu.

Step 3: Select the photos you wish to upload to your Google Photos, tap the addition sign in the top left corner, and select the appropriate album or create a new one. The photos will then be available in your Google Photos library, accessible through the mobile app or using your usual browser.

Step 2: Tap the menu icon, which is three horizontal bars, in the upper left corner. Then, choose “Settings” from the resulting menu.

Step 3: Choose “Back up & Sync” in the “Settings” menu and toggle the slider beside “Back up & Sync” to enable the feature. Once done, launching the app will prompt it to upload any photos you’ve taken since the last time the app was open, so long as your device is connected to Wi-Fi or mobile internet. Toggle the slider beside Photos back up using cellular data if you also want to upload photos using your data plan.
