A Question from Yahoo Answers
For iPhone newbies, it can be quite difficult to transfer files from computer to iPhone. Different from Android or Windows phone, you cannot copy photos to iPhone directly. You can use iTunes, a mobile device management application developed by Apple to sync pictures to your iPhone, though the transferring process can be kind of complicated. Or you can try some other third-party transfer software like PrimoPhoto.
We have already talked about ways to transfer photos from Mac to iPhone in previous guide. Today, let's take 5 minutes to see how to copy pictures from PC to iPhone with the help of iTunes & PrimoPhoto.
First create a new folder and drag the pictures you need into that folder. Here are the detailed steps:
Step 1. Connect your iPhone to computer > Launch iTunes.
Step 2. Click on Device tab > Click on Photos under Summary > Click on Sync Photos.
Step 3. Find and select the folder you created before > Click on Select Folder > Click Apply.
