How to Put Photos on iPhones


Apple's iPhone features a high-resolution camera for taking photos and a built-in picture management app for sorting them, but the process of putting photos on your iPhone is slightly more complicated. Fortunately, iTunes can copy pictures from your computer to your iPhone after a bit of configuration. Prior to synchronizing your iPod with your pictures on your computer, you need to copy the pictures on your iPhone to your computer to prevent them from being deleted and replaced with your computer's pictures.

  • Connect your iPhone to your computer with its USB cable. Double-click "My Computer" in the start menu, then double-click the icon for your iPod on Windows or double-click your iPod's icon in Finder on Mac. Alternately, on Mac open "Preview" from your Applications folder and select "Import From iPhone" from the "File" menu. Select "Import All" to import the photos to your Mac's photos folder.

  • Browse to the "Photos" folder on the iPod. Drag the photos that you want to keep to the folder where you keep your photos on your computer. If you use a photo management program on your computer, import the pictures into the program.

  • Click the "Photos" tab in iTunes. Check "Sync Photos." Select your photos source from the drop-down box. On Windows you can use Adobe Photoshop Album 1.0, Adobe Photoshop Elements 3.0 or a folder on your hard drive as a source. On Mac you can use your iPhoto gallery or a folder on your hard drive as a source.

  • Click "All Photos And Albums" to copy all of the pictures in your photo source to your iPod. Click "Select Albums" and check the albums that you want to transfer to only transfer specific albums to the iPhone. Click "Sync."
