The Apple iPhone, like most cellphones, includes a digital camera and a photo viewer application. But you can also add photos that you didn't take with the iPhone's camera, by syncing them with iTunes. Because of its large screen and easy interface, the iPhone makes a good digital photo wallet. Syncing photos to your iPhone is a lot like syncing songs or videos, but you'll need to manually add the photos to your iTunes library.
Things You'll Need
- Laptop or desktop computer with iTunes
- iPhone USB cable
Start iTunes on your computer by clicking the shortcut on the Taskbar, in the Start Menu or on the desktop.
Plug your iPhone into the USB cable, and then plug the cable into the computer. Wait for the iPhone to appear in the "Devices" list in the left-hand pane, and then click the icon for your phone.
Click the "Photos" tab. Click the drop-down menu next to "Sync photos from:" and then click "Choose folder."
Navigate to the folder of pictures you wish to sync. Click the folder, then click "OK." (All folders inside a selected folder will also be synced. If you wish to only import one folder, make sure that it has only images inside.)
Click "Sync." Wait for the photos to transfer. Unplug your phone.
