Normally when I connect the iPhone, iPhoto opens up automatically and gives an option to upload photos to your computer.

Do you get any error?

Customer reply replied 7 months ago
I did not get any error. I just happened to notice that not all of the pictures downloaded. When I tried it again, 5 more were downloaded, but not all of them. Entire days worth are not downloading

unplug the iphone from the computer and restart the computer and the iphone once both boots up fine then try to connect it using the usb cable and let me know if it sync fine with each other or not.

Customer reply replied 7 months ago
Well it found 4 more, but not all of them

Connect your iPhone to Mac with USB cable > Launch Preview > Click File at the upper left corner of your screen > Choose Import from your iPhone > Pick up the photos you want to transfer by clicking Import or Import All > Choose destination for your iPhone photos.

Well that's cool! Except they aren't showing up there either! I recently started using iCloud. Does that remove them from my phone somehow?

Hope that worked for you.

Ask Your Own Mac Question

if you have icloud account working then you must check using the computer to login to icloud and the photos must be there.

Dumb question-how do I access the cloud?

Open "Settings" from the home screen of your iPhone or iPod Touch and tap "iCloud." Tap the "On/Off" toggle to turn it on and enter your Apple ID as prompted. Turn on Photo Stream to see your own pictures in iCloud and Shared Photo Streams to see pictures other people have shared with you.

What Customers are Saying:

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
