Transfer Photos from an iPhone to iPhoto

Have many photos on your iPhone and want to transfer photos from an iPhone to iPhoto for management or free up iPhone space? Actually importing photos both in Camera Roll and Photo Library from iPhone to iPhoto is very easy. Here in the following, I’ll introduce an easy and fast way to transfer photos from an iPhone to iPhoto. Read on to learn how to achieve your goal easily.

Wondershare TunesGo (Mac) is the iPhone tool that I recommend to sync photos from an iPhone to iPhoto. Though iPhoto lets you transfer photos from iPhone Camera Roll, it is not so handy and it can’t transfer photos from an iPhone Photo Library to computer while Wondershare TunesGo (Mac) can do it for you quickly and accurately. It’s fully compatible with Mac OS X Snow Leopard, Lion, Mountain Lion, Mavericks, Yosemite and El Capitan.
