As a device which is used for photography, it’s important for us to backup or transfer the photos for many reasons, such as: to avoid photo file loss, to reduce the storage burden on the iPhone, for further photo editing on our computer, just to name a few. One of the methods that I want to share this time is: how to transfer photos /videos from the camera roll and sync from the iPhone to Mac by using iPhoto.

iPhoto is an application on Mac, which has been used by Mac users as photo/album, manager where we can arrange photos based on events, certain albums and edit photos to enhance their quality.

I was using OS X 10.10 Yosemite and iPhoto version 9.6, but i think the method that I’m gonna share can be done with earlier version of OS X and iPhoto.

You can also label those photos by typing the name of the event on the Add event name column (4).

You can choose Delete Photos (1) which will delete those photos on your iPhone, or choose Keep Photos (2), and those photos will stay in the Camera Roll on your iPhone.

Tips: You better delete the photos because you will have more storage space on your iPhone. Moreover, you won’t have to delete the photos manually. This is very useful, especially if you have hundreds of photos.

All photos that have been imported will be saved in the Library (Events).
