After the dialog box comes up on your computer screen, there will be an option to download videos from your phone. Uncheck the box so only photos are downloaded on your phone and not movies or videos.

Picking Your Photos

This might be the best part of the entire process. Now, you get to pick the photos that you want to download to your computer. Make sure you only add the photos you absolutely want on your computer because adding too many photos could start to weigh down your computer. Delete the unwanted photos on your phone before downloading the rest on a computer.

Clicking Import

Lastly, when you have chosen all the pictures you want on your computer, click the “Import” button, and the computer will begin to download the pictures. The transfer process depends on how many pictures you have to download, but could take seconds to hours.

AirDrop Option

AirDrop on your iPhone is another great way to transfer pictures to your computer. First, make sure that AirDrop is turned on for your phone and your computer. Next, go to your photo album and choose which photos you would like to transfer; then, hit the square button with the arrow in the bottom, left-hand corner of your screen. Options will come up allowing you to tap your computer name to AirDrop the material, with the pictures transferring momentarily.
