Stupid Question For The More "Technologically Gifted"
APPROXIMATELY (I know you can't say EXACT) how many pictures (not video) from an iPhone4 would 4gb's be??
My daughter (don't think I need to add teenage to that) has a little over 1G left on her 32G iPhone 4 and she will not get her new phone (iPhone 5) until her birthday in November. I would like to get a bunch of her pics and transfer them to a CD or flash drive. When I tried the flash drive, it kept telling me there wasn't enough space. I DEFINATLY do not have the patients to keep trying with less pics until I get it right.
Thanks in advance!

I am not even close to being a math whiz, but I will give it a shot.
I will 'assume' the photos are saved in jpg format. Now, the iPhone 4 has a 5 to 5.3 megapixel camera, I think, and if each photo was taken at that resolution then each photo *should* be around 1.5MB in size. Remember, I'm not a math whiz so I could be way off the mark, but I'm trying. Lol. Now, 1,024 MB equals 1 GB so therefore, 4,096 MB equals 4 GB. Right? Lord, i hope I'm doing this right . If you divide 4,096 MB by 1.5 MB, you should get around 2,730 which should be the approximate amount of photos.

Ummm JustMe'D..............all I can say is WOW !!
Massie, I had her phone connected to the PC. I pulled up the the photos in "view files". But I could not get them to copy to the flash drive. And I KNOW I was copying waaaayyyyyy less than 2,730. If I had to guess, I probably only had less than a 100 at a time. I kept getting an error message saying there was not enough space. I know there was cause it was a brand new flash drive.

heres what i would/usually do. hook the phone up to the computer. open itunes, and view the status bar at the bottom to see how many total GB's the pics take up. then use the "view files" in mass storage mode to copy/paste the whole pictures folder to the computers desktop. you can then click on the properties and see the total size. then open the folder and highlight a ton of photos until you get close to 4GB. however, if i were you, why not just leave them in the the folder on the computer as opposed to putting them on a flash drive? if you insist, 16/32/64 GB drives can be purchased. i just have a portable 100GB and 500GB backup drives for storage needs.
