How do I find camera roll photos after backing up my iPad in iTunes before migrating to iOS8 then back to iOS7?

I recently, mistakenly, migrated my iPad to iOS8. In less than a day I concluded iOS8 was not for me, I migrated back to IOS 7.  I backed up the iPad in iOS8 using iTunes before migrating back and now find that my camera roll has gone.  I realise that iOS8 put the photos somewhere else (witness the posts here and in other Mac forums complaining that their camera rolls are 'gone') but shouldn't they have been backed up in iTunes? 
I was able to retrieve all the apps from the backup but there was no camera roll.  Where in the iOS8 backup should they be now?  I'm afraid that I haven't figured out a connection from posts describing where the camera roll pictures went in iOS8 to be able to work backwards and restore them.
Can anyone please describe how I might be able to retrieve the Camera Roll?

You cannot.
You should be importing them regularly as you would with any digital camera.
Did you not import them before restoring?

  • Is there a way to retrieve camera roll photos after failed backup

    I backed up my iphone 4 to itunes (not icloud) yesterday, and today i went to the apple store to see if they could fix a broken lock button. They issued me a new phone, and assured me that i woult be able to retrieve my camera roll photos after restoring my phone from backup. Everything restored to my phone EXCEPT the photos. Some of them are very important to me and i would like to know if there is a way to retreive all of the photos through my computer, phone or itunes. PLEASE help me.

    The Camera Roll photos should have restored, as they are part of the backup, unless you had a corrupted backup. Connect the phone, right click on it in iTunes, and choose Restore from Backup. If you are given a choice of backups choose one from before you replaced the phone.
    However, the Camera Roll is not intended as a permanent store for photos; they should be transferred to a photo app on your computer or Photo Stream frequently, to avoid the situation you are now facing.

  • How to copy non-camera roll photos from iphone

    Hi
    I have several hundred photos on iphone that I've lost on my laptop after hard drive failure. Apple store helped to copy camera roll photos to CD but can't help with the others. I REALLY want to get copies of these, even if they're not quite top resolution.
    Any suggestions about ways to copy photo folders off iphone? Battery problems mean I ned to do this quickly so iphone can be wiped for testing/software reinstallment.
    Many thanks
    Sue

    Sue,
    When you plug your phone into your Windows computer Windows should prompt you what application do you want to use to import the photos from your "digital camera" that you just plugged into your computer. It will display a list of compatible applications. Pick one, when it opens it should show the photos on the phone/camera and allow you to import them. Hope this helps!

  • How can I move Camera Roll photos from my old iPhone 3G to my new iPhone 4?

    Hi,
    I have just got my new iPhone 4 and I'm very happy with it, really a great step-up from my old 3G. I do have one question though, in my old iPhone 3G I have about 300 photos in the camera and I would like to export them and then import them to the camera roll in my new iPhone 4...is this possible?
    Thanks in advance for your input guys!

    Only if you restore your new phone from the backup of your old phone. Camera roll photos are included in your iphone backup. However, its not wise to keep photos in your camera roll. They should be imported to your computer on a regular basis. From there, you can then sync them back to your phone, but not back to your camera roll.

  • How do I import camera roll photos when setting up as a new iPhone

    hi
    I have a new iPhone 6, which has a software issue.
    The Apple Genius bar suggested I set it up as a NEW iPhone, rather than restore the backup I initially did from my 5S.
    What is the best way to restore the photos I have taken on the iPhone back to the camera roll? (I am using a PC on Win7)
    The Genius bar suggested saving the photos to My Pictures by dragging them off as if it were a flash drive.
    He then said I should add them back once my new phone is set up though iTunes & photos.
    My concern is that when I did this a few years ago, all the metadata with the photo seems to get lost and pics came back in random orders.
    is this still the case & will it work properly now, or does anyone have better suggestions for doing this (such as backing them up to iCloud, then restoring)?
    Thanks

    Just sync it

  • HT4859 How do I restore camera rolls photos without restoring entire phone?

    Can anyone help me with this problem? I'm using an iPhone 4s.
    I restored the phone to default settings because I lost the restriction code. Before I did that I backed up my phone using iTunes to the cloud. I've been able to restore the apps and music via iTunes so those are good.
    Is there a way to restore the photos from the backups? My first attempt at restoring the phone I accidently restored from the aforementioned backup which put me back at having the phones restriction code in place.
    Thanks,
    G

    icloud storage will not help.  if you want to free up space you should import the photos to a computer.

    Hi,
    Thanks for your help.
    I have discovered that Camera Roll reappeared when I took a pic using my iPad camera.
    Previously I had not done that. Stupid me.
    Your attempt to help me is much appreciated.

  • How do I download 3G "Camera Roll" photos off my phone?

    I was wondering how to download 3G "Camera Roll" photos off of my phone 3G and onto my computer??

    Wah... don't be so sensitive.
    I didn't have to use proprietary iTune software.
    Something Apple failed miserably to allow in it's iPhone.
    In your opinion but regardless, it is what it is. The requirements for the iPhone are not kept secret and if the requirements were not acceptable to you, you should not have purchased one.
    When your iPhone includes photos that were captured by your iPhone, it is also detected as a digital camera when connected to your computer, which has nothing to do with iTunes.
    So the question still remains...
    What do you do on an iPhone with "Windoze" to get you Camera Roll pix from you phone onto your computer, other than emailing each and every one separately via email.
    The answer remains the same.
    If you choose not to use the camera and scanner wizard, your iPhone should be available in Explorer when connected as a connected drive where you can drag photos that were captured by your iPhone to the desired location on your hard drive.

  • Camera Roll Photos does not sync to Ipad2 using icloud

    Icloud camera roll photos will not download my camera roll to my ipad 2, only will download the phonestream photos. Can someone tell me how to get the camera roll photos to sync on ipad. 

    Welcome to the Apple Community.
    Only photos taken after turning on Photo Stream will be added to Photo Stream and synced between devices.

  • How can I find/sync my old iPhone camera roll photos?

    I've searched about 5 different ways here on the forums and can't find an answer to this question. I recently upgraded my iPhone 3Gs to an iPhone 4. I backed up the old phone and just sold it a couple of days ago. Here's my problem: I can't find the folder containing my (old) camera roll photos so I can sync them to my new iPhone. I'm aware that iTunes doesn't back up camera roll photos, however I understand they are saved as part of the standard backup process. Are they included in the "iPod Photo Cache" and, if so, can I use this to copy them onto my new phone? Note that I was unaware until today that I can save camera roll photos on my PC using Windows Camera and Scanner or Adobe Photoshop; I'll start doing that tonight so I'll have them in a separate folder from now on. I'm running Windows Vista on my PC, FYI.
    Thanks,
    Steve

    Is there a way for me to save what's currently on my phone?
    No. If you restore your new phone from a previous backup, all data on your phone will be erased & replaced with the data from your backup. However, if you don't want to do that you can see if this will recover the photos in question from your 3GS backup:

  • How do I transfer all photos and music from my old iphone 3gs to new iphone 4s? I have a new laptop because the old one broke and so do not have non camera roll photos or music stored anywhere apart from the iphone 3gs and cannot update io5 on the iphone

    How do I transfer all photos and music from my old iphone 3gs to new iphone 4s? I have a new laptop because the old one broke and so do not have non camera roll photos or music stored anywhere apart from the iphone 3gs and cannot update io5 on the iphone 3gs without erasibng everything. i need help!!!

    Syncing to a new iTunes library or computer will erase your phone. Only if you back up manually before syncing, you can restore your device from that backup again. A manual backup does not include the sync process.
    Do this:
    Disable autosync in iTunes, connect your phone to your new computer and right click on it in the device list and choose backup. iTunes will backup your device without syncing.
    Transfer your purchases the same way, choosing "transfer purchases" this time.
    When you connect your phone for the first time, all media content will be erased. But you can restore your settings and app data from your manual backup afterwards.
    Don't forget to set up at least one contact and event on your new computer to be able to merge calendars and contacts when you sync the iPhone for the first time.
    Music is one way only, from the computer to your device, unless you bought the songs in itunes and transferred your purchases.
    There is 3rd party software out there, but not supported by Apple, see this thread: http://discussions.apple.com/thread.jspa?threadID=2013615&tstart=0

  • How can I restore Camera Roll to my iphone 4s? I have Photo Stream and am backed up on iCloud

    How can I restore Camera Roll to my iphone 4s? I have Photo Stream and am backed up on iCloud

    Syncing notes with iCloud requires it have the correct email address linked, as notes get synced with an email address.
    Now, assuming that you have successfully set that up, though most people don't first time around, then if you deleted the note from the phone, it will have deleted from iCloud as well.
    Meaning, unless you have that note located in a backup in iTunes or iCloud you won't be able to get it back.
    You can restore the iTunes backup simply by connecting to itunes and hitting restore backup. Only thing is, any info that changed since the backup was made will be lost. (i.e. if your backup is a month old, your phone will look like it did a month ago, and only have that info on it.)
    Or, you can restore from iCloud, which requires erasing all content and settings, then selecting that backup. SO, you can see the predicament.

  • I created a photo album on my iPhone 4s - edited photos etc. but I cannot figure out how to transfer it to my pc (using Windows 8).  The only folder in the iphone drive is the one which has the Camera roll photos :( Help please - I really need the photos!

    The camera roll is not part of the sync process at all.
    You should be importing these photos to your computer regularly as you would with any digital camera.  Youc an organize them on your computer and sync the to the iphone if you wish.
    The photos sync from the computer to the iphone is one way.
    The iphone mirrors the selected content of the computer to which it is synced.
