Tips: Generally, photos on iPod touch are stored in 2 places: the Camera Roll and the Photo Library. Photos you've taken with iPod touch or synced to iPod touch via iCloud, which we call Photo Stream, are saved in Camera Roll. Photos you've synced to iPod touch with iTunes are saved in Photo Library.

If you want to transfer photos while keeping the "Event" folders, or we say photo album, you should right click on a photo album name, in the pull-down menu, select "Export". Then find a place on Mac to store the photo album.
