How to Save Pictures from an iPhone to a Computer
How do I save all iPhone photos to a computer?
I have plenty of photos on my iPhone. I was trying for hours to save all of them from my iPhone to the computer, but I can only copy those in the camera roll. How about the photos in the photo library? Can I also selectively save those photos to my computer without iTunes?
It's very easy to copy your photos that you shoot in the camera roll on your iPhone, to the computer. However, if you want to save all photos from an iPhone to a computer, you can use an iPhone photo transfer tool, such as Wondershare Dr.Fone for iOS (Windows) or Wondershare Dr.Fone for iOS (Mac). This software allows you to selectively save any photos on your iPhone to the computer, such the camera roll, photo library, photo stream and even photos that you received via messages on your iPhone. Before saving them on your computer, you can preview everyone. Using the latest iPhone 5? It doesn't matter. This Wondershare Dr.Fone for iOS software supports iPhone 5, iPhone 4S, iPhone 4 and iPhone 3GS. Also, it can be used for other Apple devices like iPod touch and iPad.

3 steps to save pictures on an iPhone to a computer
Below, let's install and run the Windows version of Wondershare Dr.Fone for iOS on the computer to have a try. The Mac version works in a similar way.
Step 1. Run Wondershare Dr.Fone for iOS on your computer
For Windows versions, there are different versions. Please download the right version. Then install and run it on your computer. If you've chosen the version for iPhone 5 or iPhone 4S, the primary window of the program will show as follows.
If you've chosen the version for iPhone 4 or iPhone 3GS, the primary window will be like below:
Step 2. Start to scan your photos on the iPhone
It's a little different here for the different versions of the program. For iPhone 5 and iPhone 4S, directly click "Start". The program will begin to analyze your iPhone and then scan the data on it.
For iPhone 4 and iPhone 3GS, you need to enter the device's scanning mode before the scan. It's simple, too. It only takes you 3 steps:
1. Hold your device, and click "Start" on the window.
2. Hold the Power and the Home buttons on your iPhone at the same time for exactly 10 seconds.
3. Release the Power button when 10 seconds have passed, but keep holding the Home button for another 15 seconds.
After you've entered the mode, you can release the button. Then the program will do the left scan work for you.
Step 3. Save your iPhone photos to a computer
When the scan starts, you can begin to preview found data in the scan result. For photos, you can preview them in the categories of camera roll, photo stream and photo library. If you've found what you want, you can pause or stop the scan. Then choose the photos you want and click "Recover" to save them on your computer with one click.
Note: Besides photos existing on your iPhone, this software also finds those photos deleted from your iPhone. If you want to separate them, you can use the button on the top: Only display the deleted items. As to other data found in the scan result, it's the same.
