Grab Photos From Your iPhone Without Using iPhoto
Those of us who use a Mac with their iPhone probably grab photos using iPhoto. It’s an obvious choice since your Mac already comes with it. However, if you have a lot of photos, you may not necessarily want to fire up iPhoto to import one or two pictures from your iPhone.
Instead of iPhoto, try using Image Capture. It’s light-weight, straight forward, and it’s included on your Mac. Best of all, you can simply drag a photo out of Image Capture right onto your desktop. You can even delete photos on your iPhone. Now that’s handy!
