Figuring Out iTunes

I'm trying to transfer photos from my iPhone to my Win 7 PC.

Several sources have suggested using iTunes.

See attached. On sources I found on the internet, they say to click the phone icon, supposedly where as indicated on the attached.

The iphone is plugged into a usb port on the PC.

How do I get the phone icon to show in iTunes?

I got to first base, but not 2nd.

See attached. The photos I took today (or any taken this month) are not shown.

How do I get them?

Open iTunes, and once open, connect the iPhone.  You should see a Windows dialogue box come up. I use this to transfer pictures from the Camera roll to my computer.

Apple and iTunes want you to move your pictures from the Camera Roll to an Album. Albums can be backed up in iTunes, but the last time I looked, Camera Roll cannot be backed up with iTunes.

Richard, your information is half right.  iTunes does interact with your iPhone in certain ways (like backing up the camera roll and iPhone settings... as well as copying pics from your computer TO the iPhone)  but one thing it does not do is import your pictures from the iPhone. That's better done with whatever method you normally use when you plug a camera into your computer and click import. Picasa is one great tool for that. So is the basic built in Windows tool.

@Richard Korts - Thanks and I was happy to help sort out iTunes and backups.
Justin BradshawOwnerCommented:
Richard, if you did what John suggested, you didn't use iTunes, you used windows built in tool as I said.

To Justin Bradshaw,

I read the responses top down, if the first one works, I take it & award points, I do not read the rest.

So you are suggesting I give you half the points?

If that's OK with John Hurst, I'll see if I can get EE to do it.
Justin BradshawOwnerCommented:
Well, I'm not worried about the points, really... I just think my answer was much more informative and helpful to your question.

To John Hurst

Is it OK to give half the points to Justin Bradshaw?
JohnBusiness Consultant (Owner)Commented:
Richard and Justin - I have unaccepted my answer. I do it without Picasa and just the Windows tool as I had mentioned. But I am happy to split the answer, so then Richard I leave it up to you again. Thank you both for your understanding.
