RE: how can i send my pictures back from my macbook to my iphone?

I needed to reformat my macbook so I decided to back up my photos that was on my iphotos through my iphone which was successful. But when I want to put it back to my macbook, everytime i connect my iphone it's only allowing me to transfer the photos that i took from my iphone camera. How can I import the photos from my iphone that was originally from my macbook? The photos are in my iphone but iphotos cannot detect it.
So basically, i transfer my photos from my macbook to my iphone, but now i want to put it back to my laptop but i cannot find the way to do it. pls help
thanks!

Hi Anne
At the present time the iPhone is not a browseable device, disc mode is not enabled. This may change with a future firmware update allowing you to browse the iPhone from the desktop as you can with some of the iPods, however at the moment this is pure speculation. The only way I can think of transferring the photos back from your iPhone is to e-mail each one individually to yourself, then pick them up from your mail account on your macbook.
Not the answer you want I know, but I can't think of any other way currently.
Good luck

  • My hard drive died, how can I get my pictures back from iPad onto a new library on the hard drive?

    Hi there,
    I have a Mac Book, and as it's a little older, and was getting full, I moved my iPhoto library onto an external hard drive. This external hard drive was always plugged in, and iPhoto used it as it's store so to speak.
    However, the hard drive has died which means I now have no access to any of my photo's.
    As I sync both my iPad and iPhone to iphoto in it entirity, at the minute I have ALL my photos on both my iPad and my iPhone.
    How can I recover the photo's onto my mac or new hard drive from the ipad or iphone? I don't dare plug either in at the minute as I don't want the Sync to remove the photos.
    HELP! Please!
    James

    Here's one way

  • How can I safe my data back from the Time capsule to iphone and macbook?

    Hi,
    last weekend we were robbed while being on vacation and iphones and macbook air got stolen. Good thing was that at home we had a time capsule and our normal macbook. As soon as we get the new iphones and the new airbook we want to get our itunes and apps and datas back to the iphones and airbook ... can somebody tell us how to re-safe or back-safe stuff from the time capsule back to the equipment?
    Thank you ... I feel so "naked" without my phone :-(

    Sorry about your loss. Follow the directions here to use Time Capsule to restore your new Air to the state your old Air was in when stolen. When you first connect your new phones, you'll be given the option of restoring from the backup of your old phones or setting up as new. Restore from your previous backups, followed by syncing your content back to your phones. You should be good to go. Maintaining current backups makes this a piece of cake.

  • How can I send multiple pictures to the Kodak link (under file & then order prints)? if the photos are not sequential can it be done?

    how can I send multiple pictures to the Kodak link (under file & then order prints)?  if the photos are not sequential can it be done?

    Does the order matter here?Because the photos will be sent for printing. If there is any other reason, can you please cite example.

    Without a backup, you cannot recover data.  This is a basic tenet of data.
    Did you perhaps have iCloud Photostream enabled?

  • IPhoto update from Mavericks deleted my library. How can I get my pictures back?

    Soo my iPhoto just decided not to find my photo library anymore.
    When I open iPhoto, it only opens a windwo where I can decide which library I want to open, but gives me no choices, the list is empty. Normally this window opens when my external HD is connected to my macbook since then there's two iPhotos available, but now it just doesnt find even one.
    I had another problem with the iPhoto on my external HD, i wanted to open it but a window opened to tell me that my library is used by another programm or that the library can't be read anymore. I was able to save those pictures by showing the contents and copying the pictures.
    Buuuut now on the macbook, when I do the left click thing to open the contents of the package, there are no pictures in it at all, no folder has pictures in it. When I copy the version from time machine, nothing changes. iPhoto has a size of 1.7 Gb, which is way to small. God dammit.
    How can I get my pictures back?

    Thank you Terence!
    Okay, so here the details:
    iPhoto Version 9.5.1
    OS X Version 10.9.1
    So here what I did, detailed. (pardon my english, I'm swiss)
    I downloaded Mavericks, few days later updated iPhoto (the iPhoto icon was orange before and turned blue after the update). All went well, until one month later, all of a sudden, I was not able to open my iPhoto on the external harddisk. A window opened to tell me that either my library is being used by another programm or that it can't be read anymore. To solve this problem iPhoto tells me to do several things, for example shut down the computer and then open iPhoto again, or set up my library again or open iPhoto by pressing command and alt. But non of those instructions helped. So I opened the contents, I looked for the folder with the masters of my pictures and copied the whole thing onto another harddisk.  
    I think I got those Pics saved, but I still can't open iPhoto on the external harddisk.
    Oh and by the way, the iPhoto icon on my external harddisk looks different now, it's three pictures in a row and the one on top shows a redish flower.
    So now, two days later I try to open the iPhoto on my regular macbook. A window pops up and says that I have to choose a library that I want to open. (iPhoto usually did that when I had my external harddisk connected since there were two different librarys then, one on my external, one on my computer) But now, instead of showing me the library's I can choose from it only shows nothing, no list or anything i could even choose. And then below there's this button that says something like "create a new library".
    So what I did:
    I open the contents and looked for the masters of my pictures, but there weren't any pictures at all. The iPhoto has a size of 1.7 GB which I think is too small for all the Pics and videos i stored in there.
    I tried to get the IPhoto from Time Machine, but nothing changed. Iphoto still's 1.7 GB.
    I opened the file "Pictures" in the Finder, but there's no such file like "iPhoto library", like it's deleted or something like that.
    So i think that I used iPhoto usually, nothing speciall. I imported Pictures from my iPhone or camera and left them there.
    Does that help?

    - If you used PhotoStream then try getting some of them from your PhotoStream. See that topic of:

    Those aren't apps; they're bookmarks to websites. Have you tried resetting your device by pressing and holding the Home button and power button until the silver apple appears? If all else fails, you can just re-do the shortcuts.

  • How can I get specific files back from my Time Machine backup?

    I wanted to make a fresh install on my MacBook Pro, in order to only have Java 8 instead of any older Java versions. So far so good. But now I want to get specific files/libraries from my external backup (USB):
    One Parallels Virtual Machine
    My old mail
    My iPhoto Library
    I don't need any settings for these, since I can easily configure them again.
    I already used the Migration Assistent to restore all apps.

    You will want to add the same User account(s) which hold the data you want to restore. So you will want to add a User account of 'Hans or hans'. Check your Time Machine back up drive to see how the User account is labeled (Hans or hans). Navigate to the Users folder and see how it's labeled.
    You can then use your Time Machine back up drive and navigate to the User Home folder to copy its data over (e.g. contents from Documents, Downloads, Music, Pictures, etc.). Repeat for other Users.

  • How can I get my photos back from icloud after an upgrade?

    So I recently upgraded my iPhone 4s to an iPhone 5s last Wednesday. I had made sure to back it up with icloud 3 times on 3 different days prior to this. I received my new phone and it was backing up perfectly. Till I realized that my 1,500 photos hadn't uploaded and my phone wasn't letting me take pictures. It had only let me download about 300. I am devastated by the loss of these pictures. I have restored my phone multiple times and it still downloads the same pictures. I have no other problems. I called Apple and they said that the icloud only backed up these 300 pictures and my other ones were lost. But yet there were no signs of my backup being incomplete. How can I get my pictures back?

    Hi sadie,
    When you did the backup, were the 1500 pictures all on your camera roll? Or were they on other Albums?
    iCloud is not a storage device for your photos. You should be importing them to a computer or uploading them to a cloud storage facility like DropBox or Flickr.
    Each time you do a backup of to iCloud, it creates a backup of what is on your phone at that moment in time. So, if you had some photos on one backup, but not the other, you would only be able to "recover" the photos from one of those backups. Photos in iCloud are not aggregative.
    Also, the iCloud backup of photos only includes those photos or videos in the Camera Roll. Photos in any other album are not backed up:
    http://support.apple.com/kb/PH12519?viewlocale=en_US
    If you had PhotoStream turned on, then the last month's-worth of PhotoStream, or the last 1000 PhotoStream photos would also still be viewable.
    Can you tell us where those 1500 photos were located when you did your backup?
    Sorry that you lost your photos. Take a look at DropBox in the App Store, or check out Flickr. If you aren't importing your photos on a regular basis to a computer, then these would be your best bet to protect your photos going forward.
