Use iPhoto

by Lustrook In reply to Photo transfer from iphon ...

Nope, I think you need to allow iPhoto to transfer then it will transfer. If you don't allow it to transfer, it will not transfer your photos to the iMac.

transfer photos from iphone to mac

by sherrychurchill In reply to Use iPhoto

Firstly, you don't use iTunes to transfer photos from iPhone to Mac, you use iPhoto, Image Capture, FonePaw iOS Transfer, Aperture, etc. to get photos off iPhone.
Use iPhoto:
[1]Using the cable that came with the iPhone, connect it to your Mac.
[2]Open iPhoto, if it’s not already open.
[3]To import all the photos from your camera, click the Import All button. To import only some photos, press the Command key while you click each photo you want to import, and then click the Import Selected button.
[4]After the import process is finished, click the Eject button or drag the iPhone’s icon to the iPhoto Trash in the Source list.

Import photos to your Mac

by AllenWinner In reply to Photo transfer from iphon ...

You can use Photos for OS X to import photos from your iOS device to your Mac without using iCloud Photo Library. These steps also work for importing images from digital cameras and SD cards.
1. Connect your iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, or digital camera to your Mac with a USB cable. If you're using an SD card, insert it into the SD slot on your Mac, or connect it using a card reader.
2. You might need to unlock your iOS device using your passcode. You might also see a prompt on the iOS device asking you to Trust This Computer. Tap Trust to continue.
3. On your Mac, the Photos app automatically opens. If it doesn't, open the Photos app.
4. The Photos app shows an Import screen with all the photos and videos that are on your connected device. If the Import screen doesn't automatically appear, click the Import tab at the top of the Photos app, or click the device's name in the Photos sidebar.
5. To import a selection of photos, click the ones you want, then click Import Selected. To import all new photos, click Import All New Photos.
6. When the import is complete, a message box asks if you want to delete or keep the photos on your device. Click Delete Items to remove the photos, or click Keep Items to keep them on the device.
If you select Keep Items, you'll have to delete them directly from your device when you want to remove them.
7. You can now disconnect your device from your Mac. If you imported photos from an SD card or other USB device, safely eject the device first.
Imported photos appear in the Photos app's Last Import album.

Photos and videos that you sync from your computer to your iOS device using iTunes can't be imported back to your computer.
