How to Transfer Pictures From a Computer to Your iPhone

By Aaron Wein

The Apple iPhone is a cell phone with all of the added features of an iPod, such as music and video playback. Another feature is the ability to upload photos from an iTunes-equipped computer. Once the iPhone is connected to the computer, you can search for and sync full folders of photos to your iPhone.

Step 1

Plug your iPhone into your iTunes-equipped computer using the USB cable that came with your iPhone.

Step 2

Load iTunes. The program may also automatically open once your computer recognizes the connection, depending on your settings.

Step 3

Click on your iPhone in the source pane on the left. This automatically opens the summary tab for your device.

Step 4

Select "Manually manage music and videos" if it's not already selected.

Step 5

Click on the "Photos" tab and select "Sync photos."

Step 6

Click the drop-down menu and choose "Select Folder."

Step 7

Choose the photo folders that you wish to sync to your iPhone.

Step 8

Click the "Apply" button in the lower right-hand corner of the window to begin the sync process.
