Help - Where Do All my Photos Go?
I just switched from a Pre to an iPhone 4S. I've never used iTunes before (I used to just drag and drop on the Pre). I have it syncing music and podcasts for me, and I have been able to get it to put photos on my phone from my computer, but when it syncs where do the pictures that I've taken with the phone go? I am using WiFi sync with the iPhone. I've been a computer teacher for over 20 years, but I've never used Apple anything until now, so iTunes has me confused.
Any help would be appreciated...

You can access your camera roll with your pc like you would a flash drive. It shows up as a hard drive when you connect your phone. You don't do it through iTunes.

As of now, you cannot delete any photos from the photo stream either, but as you know, you can delete any photos out of the camera roll.
:o i get confused using some of the icloud stuff also, SO i just do things the 'old fashioned' way and just sync my phone once a week to itunes and do a back up. the only thing i have set up for the cloud is my contacts and calendar
Please someone correct me if i'm mistaken here
Well, I think I'm doing it the old fashioned way too. I just have iTunes doing a WiFi sync, but the pictures don't appear anywhere on my computer. If they are moving to the cloud, I would like to know how to get them back from the cloud to my PC.

Now, MasterofPuppets mentioned being able to gain access thru your hard drive on the comp to see the pix on your iPhone. I use to do this with my bb, and i havent tried it with my iphone yet--its on my list of things to do.
What i believe you would do, is from your start up menu, go into 'computer' c drive. In there, you should be able to see other drives you have on your compt that can be access. Find the one for your iPhone and then from there you can navigate to the camera roll so you can right click and 'copy' to a folder you've created labeled "iphone pix"(perhaps) and then right click to 'paste' so they are copied into that folder.
Dont quote me on that either, as i havent done it with my iPhone YET, but it is how i navigated to do this with my blackberry pictures, so i would think doing for the iPhone would be basically the same route
Again, anyone, if i'm mistaken here, please correct me

I'm trying to avoid using the sync cable, since it only came with one and I have that plugged in near my bed (I had hoped to use it as an alarm clock radio like I did with my Pre, but that hasn't worked either). I could buy another cable, but I think I'll just end up using the WiFi photo sync someone suggested above. I just didn't want to do something that iTunes was already doing.

Apple support article HT4083 explains copying photos from your iOS device to the computer.
It does a pretty good job stepping you through for each type of computer.
Basically, connecting via usb and importing the photos.
I think syncing via itunes is to put photos back onto the ios device.

Re: Help - Where Do All my Photos Go?
I have tried to find my phone as a hard drive on my computer to view the photos and videos. But, I have the new windows program and everything is completely different. I can't find it at all as a hard drive. Do you have any suggestions?
