iPhone 3.0 Photo Management: Syncing Video and Photos with your iPhone


Syncing Video and Photos with your iPhone
Expanding on my second to last post iPhone Troubleshooting: Troubles Syncing iPhone Photos I wanted to look more closely at how to import video for your iPhone. I recently had a friend get in touch with me regarding her new iPhone 3GS. She is new to the iPhone 3GS and had been shooting video and taking pictures. She contact me asking how to syncing her iPhone with her Mac. Most of us familiar with Apple’s logic take for granted that we intuitively go to certain apps to help us manage our iPhones. However for a relatively new user this can be confusing. Even though syncing between your iPhone happens in iTunes, there’s no preference for video syncing in the iPhone management screen. If you have shot video with your iPhone and you have iLife installed you can use iPhoto to help you with this.



Sync with iPhoto
If you have iPhoto selected as your photo management program in iTunes it will automatically launch once you connect your iPhone. Once open you can select which photos and videos you want to import, you can also opt not to import duplicates.
iPhoto - Device Manager

iPhoto - Select your iPhone under DEVICES

  1. Start by launching iPhoto (if not already open)
  2. Under DEVICES select your iPhone
  3. Check “Hide photos already imported”
  4. Check the photos and videos you want to import
  5. Click “Import Selected”

Sync with Image Capture
If you don’t own the iLife suite you are not out of luck. Image Capture is your default photo manager an comes with Mac OS X. Similar to iPhoto you can select which photos and videos you want to import, you can also opt not to import duplicates. One major difference between Image Capture and iPhoto is that you can “Delete after Import”.
